    In our circles you may find A laugh, a wink, a grin But pressure us we'll likely snap And send away our kin. We don't do much, we go to pot Such simple ones are we But with your hand we take command Or from you we will flee.

    Agree. When I hit the send button, I realized my thinking was too simple. But instead of deleting my post (moderator privilege) I left it to take its licks.

    (This puzzle is from a blog called By Way Of Contradiction.) Imagine you have a circular cake, that is frosted on the top. You cut a d degree slice out of it, and then put it back, but rotated so that it is upside down. Now, d degrees of the cake have frosting on the bottom, while 360 minus d degrees have frosting on the top. Rotate the cake d degrees, take the next slice, and put it upside down. Now, assuming the d is less than 180, 2d degrees of the cake will have frosting on the bottom. If d is 60 degrees, then after you repeat this procedure, flipping a single slice and rotating 6 times, all the frosting will be on the bottom. If you repeat the procedure 12 times, all of the frosting will be back on the top of the cake. For what values of d does the cake eventually get back to having all the frosting on the top?

    I swear: 1) To strangle the next person who uses 'suicide' as a verb. 2) That if I offended or hurt you in any way, I didn't mean it. 3) That I'll stop procrastinating. Tomorrow. Add whatever you swear.

    Personally, the original reason I believed in God is that an adult told me he existed when I was little and, being little, I took their word. But over time, I've listened to people talk about their experiences with God and seen it with others. I think I've seen Him get me through a lot of stuff the past few years that I don't think I'd have been able to make it through alone. You could say that I got through them because I worked hard, or just because believing in a higher power has some effect psychologically, or that there were coincidences involved, but when I put it all together, those reasons just don't work for me. But if I had to give just one reason that I believe God is real, it would be that He told me so. Audibly.

    eq ( 1 ) Study = not failed eq. ( 2 ) not study = failed add eq ( 1 ) & ( 2 ) study + not study = fail + not fail study ( 1 + not ) = fail ( 1 + not ) study = fail Then why should we study??

    this one is pretty cute! Blonde v.s. Lawyer a lawyer sitting on a plane next to a Blonde want to pass some time and turns to her and says, "how about a trivia game, if i ask you a question and you get it right I'll pay you 10 dollars, and if you get it wrong you pay me 1 dollar. then you ask me a question, with the same conditions." blonde says, "no thanks, I'm reading a book." the lawyer says, "okay how about this, 20 dollars for getting right for you, and 20 dollars for getting wrong for me." the blonde rolls her eyes and says fine. the lawyer asks, "whats the distance from the earth to the sun?" the blonde hands him a dollar. then the blonde asks him, "what goes uphill with 3 legs and down hill with 4?" the lawyer blinks for a second and says " i have no idea, i guess you win that round." then hands her 20. "okay my turn again, i am curious, what does go up hill with three legs and down hill with 4?" the blonde hands him another dollar.

    I would think that the only way to make ANY sense of the situation is for the woman to repeat back to the croc EXACTLY what he said to HER: "If I guess right, you'll give my baby back, if I dont, you'll eat him. That's what you'll do to him." He'd have to return the baby, because she's CORRECT NO MATTER WHAT. Eh? hehehe

    I’m the acrobat at your command, Give me a turn, or put me on the stand. I’m the sentinel, doorman you need, Give me a go, a go-ahead from me. Hit me, poke me, nail me in your wake, Without my flips, weak knees would quake. I live in one state and travel to another, Sunny side up or fumble in the other.

    On my phone, I see a link on each post that says "quote". I can sort of copy and paste the roster on phone but as I found out last game, the cursor had an unfortunate habit of moving... Spoilers and colors on phone have to be done with the [ ] codes. Spoiler: {spoiler}your text here{/spoiler} with [ ] instead of { }. No spoiler titles. Colors: {color=red/orange/whatever}text here{/color} also with [ ] instead of { }.

    I think it's fair to say that the Coup of Rhotus is effectively dead for now; we're having enough trouble getting signups for a ten player game as is. Maybe once we build the player base a bit we can try to revive it, but for now I think it's rather unlikely. On the other hand, Forgotten Districts is in signups, and that's relatively close to getting off the ground!

    I think phaze is right about the most practical answer. If that fails, I tend to agree with bonanova.

    another proof 1) draw 3 additional lines parallel to each cevian passing through the remaining vertices of 2 triangles. 2) show that 6 other shaded triangles are mirror images of the green triangle and therefore have the same area 3) show that every part of a shaded triangle that lies outside of the big triangle has an equal unshaded part inside the big triangle. Midpoints of big triangle's sides are points of symmetry.

    A little more fun: Let the lower mass be a fraction f of the upper mass. What are the values of f for which the upper ball should be pulled distances of [a] 0.5 and 1.0 from the hook in order for the balls to collide?

    Can the following be completely factored over integer coefficients, where the highest degrees on x and y are both one? 2x2 + 3xy - 2y2 - x + 3y - 1 If not, state that. If so, then show the steps leading up to and the final factored form.

    Weighing IV. - Back to the Water and Weighing Puzzles One of twelve tennis balls is a bit lighter or heavier (you do not know which) than the others. How would you identify this odd ball if you could use an old two-pan balance scale only 3 times? You can only balance one set of balls against another, so no reference weights and no weight measurements. This old topic is locked since it was answered many times. You can check solution in the Spoiler below. Pls visit New Puzzles section to see always fresh brain teasers.
