  1. Too Simple Start both timers, when 4 is done, flip it over. 4 min passed, 7 timer has 3 min left. When 7 timer is done, flip both over. 7 min passed, 4 timer has 1 min left, 7 timer full. When 4 timer is done, flip 7 timer over. 8 min passed and 7 timer has one min in bottom which is why you flip it to time the last min.

  2. Half Fast Well, everyone raised their hand, so everyone sees at least one red dot. I'm guy A, the others are B and C. I think to myself, if I have a white dot, guy B would see a red dot (on C) and a white dot (on A, me), and since guy C raised his hand, B would know his dot is red because mine is white. Same with guy C looking at A (me) and B. If neither one can deduce this readily, I must have a red dot also.

  3. I'm still trying to figure out how the rooster got on the roof? They can't fly so I say the hell with the egg, I want this flying rooster. That is of course the egg isn't a golden one. Then it would be the Gander that laid the golden egg. Also, Frank Zappa isn't dead, his alias is akaslickster, I saw him several pages back. Now I'm going to bet on a chicken fight........

  4. Asked my Consultant E.T. (the guy in the pic) and he spelled it out simply:

    It takes 2 typists 2 minutes to type 2 pages thus each typist types 1 page in that 2 minutes, still with me? I said yes.

    Since it takes 1 typist 2 minutes to type 1 page, how many pages can he type in 18 minutes? 9 was my reply, he said "correct".

    If 1 typist can type 9 pages in 18 minutes, how many typists would it take to type 18 pages in 18 minutes? I just nodded and said:


  5. Just guessing here, but why not put a lock on one ring and lock it. Then, put another lock through the second ring and lock it through the first lock. It would only work if you remember to put one of the keys in the box with the valuable item BEFORE you lock it shut. Just in case this isn't the correct answer, get the insurance also......
