I've been looking at these four lines of numbers for the last couple of days and getting absolutely nowhere. I'm obviously missing something fairly basic seeing as nobody else seems to have gotten stuck here. Any chance of a push towards the finish line?

If you've been looking at this for a couple of days, then there's a good chance you have seen or used the key to this one.

This is the first one where I have no idea where to even start. I can't think of any other item I use other than the obvious and it just doesn't make sense considering the sequence.

Who said it was a sequence? Smile

A sequence implies that the answer is what's next, maybe there is nothing next...i.e. it is already complete in itself...

Oh ok, that's not what I meant. I don't get what I should be using as a key since the obvious key doesn't seem to fit since there are places where I think it just wouldn't work. I'm stuck on what to try next.

I think MorFF put it best previously:

I guarantee when it dawns on you you will make an anguished groaning noise Very Happy ( that's not a clue, just a prediction )

Your prediction was right...I had it all along but just didn't put it all together. 19 hours on that one...shameful!

If bimbogami was 'Who wants to be a millionaire' (tm), you would be able to use a lifeline...

Hmmm, the sensei will have me lashed soundly with bamboo splinters for being too helpful in the final round...

It's a word.
