    Solve this St. Louis Numerology Equation to Reveal the Rams' 1st Pick

    SPOILER ALERT

    This equation will reveal the Rams' first pick. Solve it only if you truly want to know who it will be:

    The largest man made monument in the United States is located in the fair city of St. Louis.

    This building, found a few blocks away, is regarded as one of the first skyscrapers built in the United States.

    Subtract the height (in feet) of the skyscraper from the height (in feet) of the monument.

    St. Louis was also the birthplace of this famous soda that has a number in its name.

    Divide the number derived from the subtraction problem above by the number in the name of the soda.

    Take the resulting number, and multiply it by the number of the Rams' first selection in 2014.

    Divide that number by the number of cities that have appeared in the full name of the Rams during its history.

    The resulting number is the college jersey number of the Rams' first selection.

    I think I did the math wrong because I got Michael Jordan.

    I think you are very close, but slipped up at the very end.

    I must say AV......that is a surprise pick from you. Not a direction I thought you were going. I feel like I've been run over by a truck.

    I didn't say it was MY pick. Rather, its the selection of the Moirai of St. Louis!

    Well, then I guess it's just Fate.

    Indeed, I feel like half a man after that mistake. I am, however, very impressed at the way you pulled all that stuff together to make that problem.

    lol I kept multiplying by 12 for total picks in the draft, rather than just the first round. Ok got it, my forehead can now stop its thumping against the wall. I'm glad to finally know. The suspense has been killing me and I didn't want to have to wait another whole month.

    There's more from the Fates though!

    ok, and now if you want to know WHEN this person gets picked by the Rams, take the above generated number and separate the two digits. Got it? Ok great, now take away the first digit so you're only left with the second digit. Viola! The mysteries of the universe have now been opened to you.

    But...but...but he isn't in your signature!

    Cool little mathematical equation though. If that showed up on a test when I was younger, I probably would've enjoyed it much more.
