New Spoonhouse99 Feature!!!

Riddles!! With Math!! Yes!!! To be updated irregularly!!!

1 1 2 2 1 3 3 2 5 5 3 8 8 5 13 13 8 21 X Y Z

Question is: What are X Y Z?

First one is easy. Next one will be harder.

UPDATE: The rule is that the first person to correctly answer has to come up with the next riddle. Riddles should involve math if at all possible. If the winner doesn't want to post a riddle say so and it'll pass to either me, or the 2nd person to get the right answer.

Lunchbox wins the first one and we await his riddle.

Thank you Mr. Concise.
Here's my original response:

Let's describe any trio of numbers above as "A B C". If we called the
succeeding trio "D E F", then D=A+B, E = A, and F=A+C so the next trio would be: 21 13 34

Right, it can also be found as 1+2=2, 2+1=3, 3+2=5, etc. they're called the fibonacci numbers.

You do realize that you didn't actually specify a fibonacci sequence right?

I now. But i thought it would be too difficult if I didn't put in the extra crap. Got any ideas for a riddle.

The extra stuff is what made it difficult, the original sequence is cake.
