  • The number 24

    Can everyone give examples where Forrest uses the number 24? I know there are 24 lines in the poem. Are there other instances where he uses 24 in an interview, quote, article, etc?

    Update:
    1. 24 lines in the poem
    2. X is the 24th letter in the alphabet
    3. Omega is the 24th letter in the greek alphabet.
    4. Gold is the 24th element of the periodic table. (Delete - Wrong)
    5. Forrest releases his public announcements on February 4 each year - 2/4/201X - 242019 - 24.
    6. Forrest retired from the military with 20 years and 24 days.
    7. Forrest said the Autumn Equinox is on September 24.
    8. Forrest said Cynthia Anne Parker lived with Comanche for 24 years.
    9. Forrest said you can catch 24 inch trout in yellowstone.
    10. On 10/23/2013 - Forrest said in an interview he passed 24,000 emails.

    Additions:
    11. TTOTC pg. 78: "The 'freedom plane' was to take me home in just four days, on the 24th of December, 1968."
    12. TTOTC pg. 79: "A quick scan of the twenty-four gauges on the instrument panel said my ship was willing and ready, so with a head nod we rolled in tight formation."
    13. TFTW pg. 64: "The other twenty-four students were officers."
    14. TFTW pg. 116: "Academically, at West Point, cadet MacArthur earned 2424.12 grade merits out of a possible 2470, or 98.14%, the highest mark ever achieved at that institution."

    Here's a few, thanks to the Tarry Scant website...interesting when 24 is mentioned often he is also speaking of being blindsided or needles in the eye. Goes well with my thread/ ball of string.

    "Felix the Feline keeps on walking, keeps on walking still. With his hands behind him, You will always find him. Blew him up with dynamite, but him they couldn't kill. Miles up in the air he flew, He just murmured, Toodle-oo!"

      Here's an interesting one. It's more of the person writing Forrest speaks of being blinded by the adventure of war...

      I can relate to the "do more with less " at my job now... I do the role of 2 different job positions now, and now they're training me for a 3rd.. guess they figure technology makes it easier and people more interchangeable? I ask for more pay and suddenly they go blind.. ah well. Hope y'all have a good day.

        Sing a song of sixpence, a pocket full of rye;
        Four and twenty blackbirds baked in a pie . . .

        X is what's missing from the poem.
        X marks the spot.
        X is the final clue.

        The final clue, he said, would be . . . in the parking lot . . .

        A sixpence was a British coin which was also known as a 'tanner'.

          Hmm there's a pocket dinosaur and a dinosaur at one end of my map near the parking lot, and a blackbird with a fox at the far end... interesting. You might be on to something...

          He sure uses the word 'pocket' a lot.

                Because X = 10. The 10th clue.

                  Hmmm..."Every 23rd word of every 23rd page," where did I put my copy of TTOTC
                  Someone told me it was block 24, not block 23.

                      So there must be an X, and the chest quickly down from it.

                        isn't that the non clue? the fallen timbers near ohio, chief tarhe, and the phantom knows, the tarhe helicopter, wolf did a nice piece on 10, i think its back logged at finding forest.

                            I'm not familiar with any of that. I think if anyone found the X, the chest would've been found as well.

                              The 24th element on the periodic table is not Gold. It's chromium. Gold is the 79th element on the periodic table.
