2. ### Interesting hour glass puzzle

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.

41.66 ???

4. ### Simple but challenging logic puzzle

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.

5. ### The Poisoned Cup, revisited

Not too good at reckoning so I'll put it in the coffee, it'll probably kill them and might not kill me depending on who gets it, providing putting it in neither is not an option.

6. ### Why Round.....?

Its the only shape that can't be turned in such a manner to drop it inside the manhole.

7. ### What am I?

Sounds like my LAWYER..............

8. ### By Law?

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........

9. ### Typists problem

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:

IT TAKES TWO TYPIST 18 MINUTES TO TYPE 18 PAGES.

10. ### Locks and keys

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......

11. ### School days

Who's journey took the longest? Is that longest time or longest route? They all took the same amount of time.......

42 and 24

13. ### Solve This!!!

I know it CANNOT be a bat because they're just as blind during the night as they are during the day. They navigate using radar but that doesn't mean they can see, just avoid obstacles.

14. ### Double trouble

The only word most often spelled incorrectly = I-N-C-O-R=R=E-C-T-L-Y. Who could've guessed that?

Assuming they're all moving at the same speed, 15mph works. But that is not stated so there isn't enough parameters as one could assume anything.

16. ### You live in Killville. Can you stay alive?

I'm guessing Pacifist for one simple reason, when two Pacifists meet they both live, when two Killers meet they both die. Odds are two Killers will meet, kill each other, then you have more Pacifists than killers which gives you a better chance of meeting a Pacifist although you still need a lot of luck.
