Some weeks ago I invented a really hard task of this kind. Wanna try it?
1 + 1 = 3 for very large values of 1.

evil: ok, evoke? ;)
Seriously:

1, 5, 9, 101, 1385, 3493, ?

All of these are decimal numbers.

I posted this to a Mensa board at 1:00 am. When I logged on at 11:00 am (of the same day), somebody had already posted the correct solution.

Now it's 11:28 am.

30121 :-P

Number sequence tests are fucking pointless anyway.

Meh! Hitchhikr beat me to it. It's part of the integer sequence of A005150.

so you're intelligent when you can learn integer sequences by heart ? :)))))))))
if the replier on the mensa board was so intelligent, he would have used google and find the next numbers in less than 10 hours :))))

what's the next number LOL ? (what is bass ?)
I don't know what's "the integer sequence of A005150", but hitchhikr and Shockwave are right. That's the number I had in my mind. (It's 12:36 pm.)
OK, I've checked out http://mathworld.wolfram.com/LookandSaySequence.html. It's a "look and say" sequence indeed, but it's not the same as A005150 according to the link included there.
Damn, that page http://www.research.att.com/~njas/sequences/Seis.html spoils all the fun. :-)
it sure is A005150, you just need to convert from base 4 to base 10.
Question is how you came up with the sequence?

And I just invented something great, it's a round shaped thing and believe me it's going to revolutionise the modern world, it looks like this;
