2 and 198 (to be close to both egreg and David because they seem to always know what they are doing on TeX.SE)

19

According to my random number generator I choose 9 and 99 http://dilbert.com/strip/2001-10-25

18

113 and 86 (the ages of my mother and sister if they had survived this long).

17

1 and 200 (just to be more daring than David)

15

I don't consider this an issue, since people who see that message are already on this site. The suggestion is not "Go to TeX.SX" or "Visit TeX.SX". As an aside: For those posting Welcome to TeX.SX! verbatim as a comment, they could consider changing this to Welcome to TeX.SE! as the .SE suffix is more commonly used to represent the Stack Exchange ...

Nothing better than good prime duck, so 3 and 197 (lowest and highest available prime numbers)

15

12 (For the number of wing feather tips on the last contest duck) 5 (For the number of top knot feather tips on the last contest duck) p.s. He says you have to rerun the winner selection if these are chosen. (Duckie says "he is unique, and wants to remain unique!!)

13

Because: It's prime! It's your body temperature in degrees Celsius. 37 * 2 - 1 = 73 (and this is the only number that does this in base 10) (and btw, 73 is prime as well) AND it's a centered hexagonal number (take sides of 4 dots): AND it's a star number (take sides of 3 dots): Oh, and it has its own website as well: http://thirty-seven.org/

133 and 55. …do stressed ducks quack under pressure when their goose is cooked? (Sorry if you're not pond of these daffy puns.)

I missed the previous one by one. As every broke gambler knows, patience is the archenemy of the odds. So here we go; 131; I'm a random number generator myself and this is the result. Also another generator agrees; I have generated a new one which is 144.

10

97 and 88, because: sage: randint(1,200) 97 sage: randint(1,200) 88

10

18 and 67 for the years of Canadian confederation. While not ducks, the Canadian goose is considered waterfowl...

9

Number 1: 68 Number 2: 130 Numbers generated using Emacs' random function, I'm sure you will appreciate it :) Here is the code (dolist (i '(1 2)) (insert (concat (number-to-string (1+ (random 199))) " ")))

9

My choice is 247 because tex.se has a 24/7 service! My another two guesses are 60 and 195.

9

I am opting for the two perfect numbers 6 and 28.

9

007 and 070. Help me win this, James Bond!

9

As always; 131; I'm a random number generator myself and this is the result. Also another generator agrees; I have generated another one which is 68.

9

apparently 0 and 201 I used last time broke the rules, so this time I choose: 0 and 0 Update Third choice now allowed, I choose 0

8

Number I: 17 Number II: 21

041 197

13 and 111. Cwac, cwac a chwac!!

Well, obviously the numbers have to be generated from "DUCK" and "QUACK", so my choices are 004 and 076. Generated by concatenating the binary ASCII-representations of each letter, taking the remainder modulo 200 of the resulting binary number, and finally adding 1 to ensure that the result is in the desired range.

026 + {197}† are the lowest/highest available numbers which total to my rep. Most other users here would have to add a "k" after it! Is there a consolation prize for "lowest rep user to participate"? :) (The {197}† also gets me close to the Big Hitters.) † Alas! 197 was already taken, so I will just submit a single entry -- which is allowed by The Rules, ...

024 cat 054 cathod [cath is already taken :(] Caveat: I may have counted incorrectly .... EDIT Plus 161 Code for pictures is around and about. All ducks courtesy Paulo.

7

15,97 (97 feels very lucky)

7

42, 37

7

I'll take 154 because the ISBN for the hardcover version of LaTeX and Friends ends with these digits.

7

The same every year; I go with 131

7

I choose 101 and 191, the smallest and largest palindromes among the choices. okay, third number: 076.
