Don’t you understand we go together like bangers and mash? Like cream tea and scones? Like a put-upon everyman character actor and a big posh flamboyant manic pixie dream boy with cheekbones you can balance a Bafta on?
Sherlock clashes John’s proposal dinner with no forethought to how he will be received. John attacks him three times and walks away. Sherlock and Mary talk and she reassures him that she will, ‘talk him around’. Then Sherlock deduces a series of things about Mary. We…
"i imagine john watson thinks love’s a mystery to me, not that i think about him thinking about it, or anything, uh, the chemistry’s incredibly simple and very destructive; i know we weren’t talking about it or anything but i just, you know, it’s funny that he probably thinks about it and i’m…
even with those four numbers there are countless possible combinations good luck with figuring out which one is the right one you punk
It’s pretty likely that it’s a four digit number, and as there are four digits chosen there, that means that there cannot be any repetition. This mean that there are:
n!/(n-4)! possible orders. As ‘n’ is 4 (number of digits available). 4!/0! which becomes 4x3x2x1/1 which simplifies to 24. That means that there are 24 possible combinations of codes. This would take you about two or three minutes to input all possible codes.
Unless an alarm goes off if you don’t get it right in 3 tries
*straightens calculator again*
Kick the fucking door in
well ‘technically’ the code is most likley 1970. statistically, a majority of people, when told to choose a 4 digit code will choose their birth year. and this key pad is obviously a few years old to put it nicely, thats most likley it.
some sherlock holmes shit just went down over here
No, no, no. Don’t base your deductions of psychology. Let’s talk chemistry. When you first press a button, there’s more of the natural oils on your skin, and therefore it wears down the numbers on the keys faster. Obviously 0 is the first one, then. Try 0791 first.
it got better
and this is why the sherlock fandom could either rule the world or end it….
Close, but not quite, I think. People will almost always choose a number they can remember. What’s memorable about 0791? Try 0719 - a birthday, 19th of July. That is more likely.
Those deductions are great and all, but unnecessary.
The light is green.
The door is already open.
And that’s why we have a John Watson.
This is “top 10 favorite posts” level.
I just noticed that throughout Mycroft’s meeting with Sherlock to brief him on an imminent terror threat, Anthea is holding a single manila folder:
From Mycroft’s dialogue, we could assume it’s a file listing underground terrorist networks, maybe some…
