1. ### impossible result

i cant for the llfe of me find the flaw with his logic.

somewhere between factoring each polynomial and the step before is wrong. but i see no mistake.

words that describe themselves are homogenus.

some examples are: English is an English word, or polysyllabic is a polysyllabic word.

hetrogenus are words that don't describe themselves.

is hetrogenus a hetrogenus word?

3. ### Gift wrapping the Puzzle blocks

Spoiler

its quite possible to have a 1x1x1 block.

for example: let's say the total volume of the box is 3x3x3.

you could make that box with a 2x3x3, a 1x2x3 , a 1x1x2, and a 1x1x1.

4. ### professions

a physicist, a computer scientist, a biologist walk into a bar.

the computer scientist says, " i can't tell whether we'll ever stop."

the physicist says, " either way is probable"

the biologist says, "we will if it benefits our survival"

a coin is flipped until it comes up tails.

lets call the number of flips T.

I'll randomly place 3^T in one box, and 3^(T-1) in the other.

now i give you the option of choosing one box. after seeing the contents, you can switch.

i know its fairly late to answer this, still...

if the earth and the space ship are traveling constant velocity you would be correct.

but generally the rocket accelerates, (at least until its out of the atmosphere) and you can tell when you accelerate.

7. ### puzzle

i have no idea.

if i was forced to guess, i would guess either 4 or 5.
