3: 13 Also if take the numbers and map it back letters you get 1: s[down] 2: i[down] 3: d[down] 4: h[down] 5: t[down] 6: p[down] 7: a[down] 8:r[down] 9: d[down] 10: y[down] 11: o[down] 12: n[down] 13: a[down] 14: e[down] 15: s[down]

8: 3 probably

I am certain from the flavor text that this puzzle has to do with the Bud Light "Real Men of Genius" ad campaign. Checking a few things now.

Aha, yes. Each question is relevant to one of those tribute-d. E.g. the Steve Bartman question (14) is Mr. Baseball Stadium Glove Wearing Guy (see here). I suggest indexing into the names (probably minus the "Mr.") based on the numerical answers.

Doing that now.

Hmm. Here's what I have so far:

1) Mr. Professional Figure Skater (6)

2) Mr. Kiss Me Iím Irish Pin Wearer (17)

3) Mr. Ceremonial First Pitch Thrower Outer (13)

4) Mr. Miniature Train Modeler (8)

5) Mr. Airport Baggage Handler (22)

6) Mr. Movie Theater Ticket Ripper Upper (30) - this answer is wrong above

7) Mr. Next Day Carpet Installer (3)

8) Mr. Major Highway Line Painter (3)

9) Mr. Fancy Coffee Shop Coffee Pourer (12)

10) Mr. Paranoid of the Ocean Guy (7)

11) Mr. Giant Pocket Knife Inventor (9)

12) Mr. Furniture Assembly Manual Writer (6)

13) "Mr. Way-Too-Much Cologne Wearer" (6)

14) Mr. Baseball Stadium Glove Wearing Guy (26)

15) Mr. Multi-Colored Sweater Wearer (20)

Anyone disagree with my connections?

So far, it makes the most sense to count "mr." in the indexing, but I get this: FIFTEENMENONTRE

That looks pretty good. Could the answer be DEAD MAN'S CHEST or BOTTLE OF RUM?

DEAD MAN'S CHEST it is!

The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
