I’ll give you all a few days to hand in your answers. Have fun Some months have 30 days, and some have 31. How many months have 28? A man gave one son 10 cents and another son was given 15 cents. What time is it? Is half of two plus two equal to 2 or 3? Do they have a 4th of July in England? How many animals of each species did Moses take on the Ark with him? How far can a dog run into the woods? Is it legal in Oregon to marry your widow's sister? If a farmer has 5 haystacks in one field and 4 in another field, how many stacks would he have if he combined them in the center field? What is it that goes up and down, but does not move? I have in my hand only 2 U.S. coins which total 55 cents in value. One is not a nickel. What are the coins? A farmer has 17 sheep. All but 9 died. How many did he have left? What is 30 divided by 1/2 plus 10? You are a bus driver. The driver starts his route and picks up 20 people at the first stop. At the next stop, he picks up 12 more, and drops off 8. He then goes to the next stop, picks up 4, drops off 7. At the next stop, he picks up 15 and drops off 18. Now, here comes the tricky part. What color is the driver's eyes? You have a face alarm clock. You set it for 9 in the morning, and you go to bed at 8 at night. Supposing you fall asleep right when you go to bed, how many hours of sleep will you get? __________________ Yeah, but no but yeah but no.... Last edited by doodle : 16-02-2004 at 08:55 PM.

Some months have 30 days, and some have 31. How many months have 28? All of them. A man gave one son 10 cents and another son was given 15 cents. What time is it? As of this writing 2:45pm. Is half of two plus two equal to 2 or 3? 3, I'd suppose. EDIT: Ah, I get it. Tricky. That'd be 2. Do they have a 4th of July in England? Yes. It's just not a holiday, probably. How many animals of each species did Moses take on the Ark with him? Moses didn't go on the Ark. That would be Noah. How far can a dog run into the woods? A foot or so, I'd imagine, because after that he'd be running "in" the woods, rather than "into" them. Or perhaps halfway, because then he'd be running "out" of the woods. Is it legal in Oregon to marry your widow's sister? I'd hope not, seeing as you're all dead and creepified. If a farmer has 5 haystacks in one field and 4 in another field, how many stacks would he have if he combined them in the center field? 1 big haystack. What is it that goes up and down, but does not move? I'd guess the sun? I have in my hand only 2 U.S. coins which total 55 cents in value. One is not a nickel. What are the coins? 50 cent piece and a nickel... one isn't a nickel, but the other is. A farmer has 17 sheep. All but 9 died. How many did he have left? 9 What is 30 divided by 1/2 plus 10? 70 You are a bus driver. The driver starts his route and picks up 20 people at the first stop. At the next stop, he picks up 12 more, and drops off 8. He then goes to the next stop, picks up 4, drops off 7. At the next stop, he picks up 15 and drops off 18. Now, here comes the tricky part. What color is the driver's eyes? In my case, brown. You have a face alarm clock. You set it for 9 in the morning, and you go to bed at 8 at night. Supposing you fall asleep right when you go to bed, how many hours of sleep will you get? I'm not that familliar with face alarm clocks, but I'd guess only 1 since I'm not certain they are able to tell the difference between am and pm. __________________ -Mike www.mtmckinley.net The Maya Toolbelt

(2/2)=1 1+2=3 Answer: 3 Isn't that what it's supossed to be? I mean, this one is not new, and the trick is that one would think something like: ((2+2)/2)=2 and that would be wrong. But I don't know... I guess it works either way, it's all up to whatever the questioner wants. Also, I didn't know there were 50 cent coins here... Also, I don't understand the one about the haystack... Why 1? __________________ There can not be Good without Evil, so then it must be good to be Evil sometimes. :tup:

 A farmer has 17 sheep. All but 9 died. How many did he have left?
17: because that's in the present tense. So he would of had 26 beforehand one would presume

They get in their car and drive around town looking for another lodging. After an hour or so they stumble across the only other hotel in town. They park-up and go to the reception to be told that there is only one room available and that it costs \$30. They decide to take the room, pay their \$10 each, and head upstairs. A couple of hours later the hotels night staff arrives and the night manager looks through the register and sees that the three businessmen have paid \$30 dollars for the room. He calls the bellhop over and tells him that, in fact, there is a special on tonight and it should have only cost \$25. So he hands the bellhop 5 one dollar bills and instructs him to head upstairs and give it to the businessmen. However, on his way upstairs the bellhop decides to keep a little "tip". When the door to their room is answered, he hands them each a dollar bill and keeps the other two for himself!!! Well here's the thing: the businessmen have paid \$27 between them (\$9 each) and the bellboy has pocketed \$2. A total of \$29... not the \$30 that was originally spent. So where did the other dollar go? __________________ That'll do donkey... that'll do...

A man live on the 20th floor of an apartment block. Every day when going to work he takes the lift to the bottom floor. On returning from work, he takes the lift only to the 10th floor and takes the stairs for the rest. However, if it's raining outside he doesn't take the stairs but takes the lift to the 20th floor. Why? (for US readers "lift" = "elevator" ) __________________ That'll do donkey... that'll do...
