Its been a bit quiet around here. So, this is kinda random, but i wonder if y'all would have any interest in a game thread. Just for fun. We did these a couple of years back, but we havent done one in awhile.

So, um, I'll start. Whoever answers correctly presents the next puzzle/riddle. K?

Using a single line, and without lifting the pen from the paper, convert the Roman numeral IX to a six.

Well...assuming the line can be curved, I would just add an "s" in front.
