Very well. :)

A "yes" response is generated by the number of letters in each word of the question. The 1st word corresponds to the hour the question was posted. The second word corresponds to the minute the question was posted. The third word corresponds to the month the question was posted. The forth word corresponds to the day the question was posted. The fifth word should technically correspond to the year the question was posted, but since it'd be a huge hassle to type out 2005 characters, I was hoping that Lisa would be kind and accept '2005'. Fortunately, she was kind enough. :)

are the numbers what is relevant, not necessarily the order in which they appear? (see my aside in the chatroom... )

the number of letters in each "word" was what was relevant. Exactly. The hours column, minutes column, the month (November being the 11th month, so an 11-letter word would get a 'yes', friday being the 6th day, etc.... But not all the rest of this.

Oops..I think I forgot the weekday somewhere in my description. So let's try another question just to make sure....

Recap: The rule has everything to do with the time. Nothing to do with the extra stuff that was mentioned. The rule is more general. A couple more questions phrased right will get you the answer.

****************SPOILER********************
As Lewis said, any question in which the first words of the question matched up with digits (single or double) in the time would be answered with yes. Knew this would go fast :-)
