  1. A deck of cards is shuffled and dealt face up in a single row. A second deck is shuffled and dealt face up in a single row beneath the first row, making 52 coloumns each containing two cards. On average, how many pairs of cards will match?

  5. With a tip of the hat to @BMAD for his interesting puzzle. For your amusement, here's an interesting spin on this genre: One night you encounter a two-hour traffic delay due to an accident (the tow truck had difficulty clearing the road.) So, for a time interval 13 of two hours you were constrained to travel at 0 mph. You called home and said, sorry dear, but I'll be two hours late getting home. The next night, for some unimaginable reason, you were also constrained to travel part of the way at 0 mph, this time for a distance of one inch. What do you say now when you call home?

  8. The solutions are Because Cute.
  9. Not in every case. You could be kept alive from nourishment by other means. An intravenous tube, for example. So there is hope, and you can smile once again.
  10. That's the one I had in mind.
