I think I answered all but #9 correctly. 9 has me stumped. Anyone have any ideas?

1. How can you arrange for two people to stand on the same piece of newspaper and yet be unble to touch each other without stepping off the newspaper.?

2. How many 3-cent stamps are there in a dozen?

3. A rope ladder hangs over the side of a ship. The rungs are one foot apart and the ladder is 12 feet long. The tide is rising at four inches an hour. How long will it take before the first four rungs of the ladder are underwater?

4.Which would you rather have, a gallon jar full of nickels or a gallon jar half full of dimes?

5. Steve has three piles of sand and Mike has four piles of sand. All together, how many do they have?

6. In which sport are the shoes made entirely of metal?

7. If the Vice-President of the United States should die, who would be President?

8. How can you throw a golf ball with all your might and -- without hitting a wall or any other obstruction -- have the ball stop and come right back to you?

9. According to most state laws, the attempt to commit a certain crime is punishable, but actually committing the crime is not. What is the crime?

10. Find the English word that can be formed from all these letters:PNLLEEEESSSSS

11. How many times can you subtract 2 from the numeral 9?

12. If you take two apples from three apples, how many apples will you have?

13. If you are standing on a hard floor, how can you drop an egg three feet without breaking the egg?

OK, here goes:

1. Use 2 different sheets of the same newspaper several feet apart.

2. 12

3. Never, the ship will rise with the tide

4. Either, a nickel is a half-dime

5. One bigger pile of sand

6. Horseshoes

7. The President would still be president

8. Straight up

9. Suicide

10. Sleeplessness

11. Only once

12. You would still have three apples

13. From one hand held high into the other hand held low

What do I win??? ;^}

I agree on all answers but two.#4 a half gallon of dimes is worth more than a gallon of nickels.Even though the dimes are worth twice as much they are also smaller in mass so you could put a large # of dimes in a half gallon container then you could nickels in a gallon container.Agreed?#12 If you took 2 apples from three apples you only have 2,you never had possession of the third apple.Agreed?I had trouble with #6,but I think you nailed it.

I think the others are right for the answer of #9, but are you going to post the answeres for the rest of them??

I you want I will post the answers when I get them. Hopefully that will be tomorrow.

#9 is probably "suicide"

Juliana    Posted 01-28-2004 at 14:56:51       [Reply]  [No Email]
Yep! That's what I said before I saw your answer.

Joe Dirt    Posted 01-28-2004 at 06:13:39       [Reply]  [No Email]
I was thinking that, but didn't realize that attempting suicide was punishable. Goes to show what I know!

Attempting sucide is attempted murder and of course attempting to reduce the number of taxpayers.
