well for starters all the symbols are reused at some point...there aren't 99 different symbols but it is still creepyaccurate.

yeah, they are repeated, and there's probably some kind of math proof for why it works.

i bet my mom would know...

It HAS to be mathematical (obviously).

Even so, its irritating me.

it kinda works. clever really

spoiler...i am going to look like if someone proves me wrong

#s 10 - 19 all give you the same total: 9.
#s 20 - 29 all give you the same total: 18
#s 30- 39 all give you the same total: 27
#s 40- 49 all give you the same total: 36
#s 50- 59 all give you the same total: 45
#s 60- 69 all give you the same total: 54
#s 70- 79 all give you the same total: 63
#s 80- 89 all give you the same total: 72
#s 90- 99 all give you the same total: 81

so the only real options it must choose from are 9, 18, 27, 36, 45, 54, 63, 72, 81. it changes the symbols beside each number every time but the symbols for these 8 numbers are always the same. so it always gives you the right answer.

another way to do it is to not bother with the math, just look at the symbol beside any one of these numbers and press the button, the symbol will come up in the crystal ball because it is the only conceivable answer.

Damn you. I just figured that first part out. I think that's it, or part of it at least. That would also explain why it's occasionally wrong. But:

Umm...what?
