All things considered, wolves do not like man meat.

It probably sat in the front, facing the man, and didn't even see the goat.

A baby challenge:

What pulls you down when you're up, speeds you up when you'd rather slow down, and makes it harder to go up then go down? It can take the vehicle you are in, and without touching it, cause you to be flung out beyond Saturn.

Take the goat across. Come back, get the veggies, take them across. Bring the goat back, pick up the wolf and take the wolf across. Return and take the goat.

You are a farmer in a village and one day a goat-herder, a vegetable farmer and a hunter approach you and each ask you to take an item of theirs to the other side of the river for them. The items are: A sack of vegetables, a goat, and a wolf. You have only one canoe available and have only enough room to carry one item on the canoe with you on each trip. If you leave the goat alone with the vegetables, it will eat them. If you leave the wolf alone with the goat, the wolf will eat the goat. The wolf will not eat the vegetables, however. There is also no one else available to watch the items and tie up the boat at each side of the river--you must do it yourself. How do you safely get all three items across the river without any of them being eaten? If you solve that problem, then what is the least possible number of boat trips you can do it in?

I was about to say that the two men were swimmers who had been sucked up by the firefighting aircraft and accidentally dumped, just happening to fall through the roof of the cabin.

Popeye, I had another insight on the male relations earlier...

Man in street is grandson of man at window's priest...

Because the men thought they would burn to death, man 1 killed man 2 - then committed suicide?

"Cabin is not what you think it is". I checked the dictionary for definitions, but all definitions boiled down to a small sleeping place or a small cottage.

I guess a cabin could refer to the interior of a plane or space shuttle where the pilot and co-pilot are. In that case, they would have been killed by a crash. Since the re-entry vehicle is designed to withstand more heat that a regular fire, it was the cause of the fire and wouldn't have been "burned" becasue of the ablative armor.

Blackheart,

With a cousin who is a Forest Ranger and "Smoke-jumper" I have access to the correct answer.

You are correct, the answer is "out" of the blue.

"Blue" implies sky and sky implies oxygen.

However, in a large fire, the fire consumes all of the oxygen, pulling it from everywhere, including the cabin, which would suffocate the pair in the cabin.

The only way to survive a burn-over is to have available a Smoke-jumpers tarp. A Smoke-jumpers tarp is like you might find in an outdoors/camping store, with two fabrics sewn together. One side is aluminiaumized, and the other is a waterproof canvas.

To survive, you find a depression, pull the tarp, aluuminiamized side up, over you so that your boots hold down one end. The you tuck the tarp around your hips to keep it anchored in the middle of the body. Finally, you flip the tarp end over your head just before the fire arrives - trapping oxygen in the tarp.

Burn-overs move very fast, so the oxygen trapped under the tarp is enough for you to survive for 10-15 minutes. If you can stay calm and don't breath too rapidly, it can last as long as half an hour.

About the only thing you have to worry about is if a cinder lands on the tarp and burns through, making the oxygen available to the fire.

Loegaire,

Very close.

"That mans father", referring to the man on the street, "is my father's son".

Because there are no brothers or sisters, "my fathers son" obviously refers to me.

Therefore, the man on the street must be the son of the man at the window.

However, doesn't the phrase, "That man's father" imply there is a grandfather involved? If a grandfather is involved, that throws the logic in a different direction. If there is a grandfather, what is the relationship of the three men?

Since Loegaire has used his one chance, he may not have another. As close as he is to figuring it out, he just might stumble on the correct answer after he thinks the problem through.

And of course it's simple to me since I know the answer.

Seeing that their situation was hopeless, the two lovers, who had snuck off to the cabin for fear their wives would discover their love, shook hands before ingesting hemlock and passing on in each others' arms...

Or is the answer simpler than that?

This should make you think and might even make your head hurt.

A man was standing at a second story window of an office building. Looking outside, he saw another man walking along the opposite side of the street.

As he was studying the man across the street, he murmured this statement: "Brothers and sisters have I none, but that man's father is my fathers son".

What is the relationship of the three men mentioned in his statement?

And for extra credit, explain why it must be true.

OK, even without the "correct" answer, you have the idea. So I'll try to duplicate the correct answer with the keyboard:

|\| | |\| |_ you'll have to imagine one

toothpick above the underscore and one over that to come up with the answer - NINE

Eleven toothpicks, but you have "NINE" in front of you.

Thank you! I appreciate all your concerns! Yes, yesterday was a great tragedy in D.C. or was it a comedy?!? I guess that remains to be seen!

Anyway-we should move on! I'm hoping I can convince my cousin to do some mall walking with me to keep her busy...wish me luck!

And you stumped me again on the logic question! My brain just doesn't function that way! lol!

Rose,

I am very sorry for your loss, and you're right, we have no idea why - or what the pattern is.

Lot's of hugs, dear lady.
Bob

I hope all of you will take this in the spirit it is meant. Since we are Sarcastic's Unlimited, I have to say that Rose's tragedy was even greater than the one in Washington, D.C., yesterday.

The question for today is:

You are sitting at a table with 12 toothpicks in front of you. I take away one toothpick and now you have nine in front of you. How is that possible?

Thanks guys. Yes, it is a particularly vicious form of cancer. He had a mole taken off the year before and thought that he was done-but a year later he found lumps under his arms and took him in just over a year. But he knows where he is going and is in a much better place. Hopefully, we will all understand this someday.

Well, they only took one to be seen by the funky cell guys, so that's good.

It comes from growing up in Southern California when you can be on the beaches of the Pacific for 10 months out the year.

Now I know almost what a death by a thousand cuts could feel like.

They gave me a Rx for Percocet every 3-6 hours as needed. I got some really restful sleep. I have a pretty high pain threshold, so I'll take another at bedtime, then maybe one in the AM, then probably Tylenol for a day or so.

I can't work complex ideas in my head yet, so it will have to be tomorrow before I come up with any more brain teasers.

OK, the answer to yesterday's question is, Mr. Spock would simply ask the following question, "If I were to ask which door to go out of and not be killed, what would the other guard tell me". Then he would simply exit through the opposite door that was named.

The logic here is that one person (being, whatever), must always tell the truth and one being must always lie. If Mr. Spock asks the truth-teller (remember, he doesn't know which one is which) what the other guard would say, the truth-teller, knowing that the liar would indicate the wrong door, would tell the truth about the lie. So if door 2 was the choice for freedom, the liar would say "Door One", which would be the response the lying being would give.

If Mr. Spock asks the liar the same question, the liar would know that the truth-teller would tell Mr. Spock the truth. The truth being that the liar would tell a lie about what the truth would be, so he would tell Mr. Spock, "Door One".

It works exactly the same way if door number one is the door to safety.

See? Perfectly obvious.

Has anyone seen or heard from Math Guy or Russ?

Mare,

Yes, but this is a biologocal question. For example One sperm fertilizes one egg, another sperm fertilizes a second age.

If they resemble each other, and being from the same family, they might, they would be called fraternal twins. However, the term fraternal twin simply means one is a brother or sister of the other, but not truly a "twin" at all.

Two siblings born naturally on the same date, in the same year, to the same mother and father. However- they are NOT twins.

Ezmerilda,

You are truly talented.

Try this one:

Mr Spock is captured and put in an alien prison. There are exactly two exits from his cell, each guarded by an alien with a sword. One of the guards is instructed to kill Spock if he tries to leave through his exit; the other guard is instructed to let him go. One guard is instructed to tell only lies, while the other is to only tell the truth. Mr Spock is told he can ask exactly one question to one of the guards. Assuming Spock does not know which guard is which, what should this question be to ensure him safe passage out of the prison?

P.S.: He tried the Vulcan mind meld; it didn't work. The alien brain is incompatible.

Ezmerilda,

If o is not a numeric symbol, does that imply is is a letter?

If it is a letter, I can see 9, but not 10 - unless we're using base 9.

I find it difficult to slog my way through so many years of junk.

I give up on this one, but I have another for y'all tomorrow.

I have lost myself, I have gone to find myself, should I return before I get back, Please have me wait!

Yep. That about sums up my feelings!!! I mean when I'm in the grocery store buying 10 pounds of chicken do I really need to know what a polynomial is?!?

Only thing I know about math is:

It makes my head hurt
I'm surprised I can balance my checkbook
It still makes my head hurt
I'd rather have bamboo under my fingernails.

A emoticon is hopping through the woods, and leaves this equation behind....can you explain it?


emoticon + o emoticon + o emoticon + o =10

(BTW...o is not numeric symbol)

Loegaire,

Congratulations!

I vaguely remember that from math class a couple of years ago in high school...there is a reason I have a German, History, and English major in college
...anything to to with math makes me shudder!
But don't worry-karma's biting me in the butt because now I have to figure out how to work with my son and his math...you should have seen me trying to teach my daughter Algebra II while homeschooling...DH took over that when he became unemployed! lol!

Ok, I had to google Pythagorean Theorem and postulated to learn their meanings. This is what I have come up with.




I’ll stick to doing laundry.
Now my head hurts.
But at least I learned something new.

By coincedence, three Indian squaws are giving birth on the same night. One has a deer hide for a bed, and gives birth to a 5 lb. boy. Another has an antellope hide and gives birth to a 6 lb. boy. The third squaw has a hippopotamus hide (she travels alot) and births an 11 lb. boy.

Which proves that the son of the squaw on the hippopotamus = the sum of the sons on the other 2 hides.

And for another math/IT/nerd joke...

There are only 10 kinds of people in the world; those who understand binary and those who don't.

Do not try and think outside the box. Instead, only try to realize the truth. There is no box.

"The squall of the son on the hippopotamus is equal to the squall of the sons on the other two hides."

(Its been forever....one of my Grandpa's favorites..., did I get it right, huh, huh???? And what the devil were the Sioux doing with hippo hides??)

Can you explain the Pythagorean Theorem as postulated by the Sioux Indian Nation.

Just checking to see if you're a real math guy or a fakir.
