Question For Extra Credit

...what noteworthy event occurred exactly 2050 years ago today (March 15)?

I tried this on the allegedly highly educated engineers on my project and they all failed the test miserably.

Can YOU make the grade?

Caesar was warned to beware the Ides of March.

Next question....

Hi Howie,

Here's a tough, lateral thinking question for you:

If I have 3 apples, and I take 2 apples away, how many apples do I have??

Think about it!

Cheers,
Adam.

Phew ! Thanks Brad ! I almost posted 5 !!!

Here's one:

A plane load of people are flying over Tasmania...

There are 10 bald headed men and 10 with hair.

The plane crashes over the desert....and 7 of the bald headed guys die. However,the survivors are found thrown from the plane in a nearby pond.

If the 7 dead bald headed guys are buried in the desert,where do they bury the survivors?

Hi everyone!

Brad:

Good work. How would have still been scratching his head about it if you hadn't answered first!

How:

I didn't know there was any deserts in Tasmania....

To answer your question:
There are no ponds in deserts, so the survivors mustn't have been buried at all!
Am I close?
Anyways, I'll set up a lateral thinking thread in the individual forums section shortly....should be interesting!

Cheers,
Adam.

Adam:

Err...you said:

" so the survivors mustn't have been buried at all! "

Thats right. They survived. They didn't die...

Is this how you're gonna do in college?

How,

Yeah, and your point is? I got it right! They weren't buried - they're alive!

Nah, college is different....then again, we all got told to "show some maturity" in Drama class today after we got into a paintbrush fight....oh well. Things will improve as the year goes on!

Cheers,
Adam.

Question For more extra credit

WHAT AM I?

The man who built me didn't want me.

The man who bought me didn't use me.

The man who used me didn't know it.

Tim, I'd say you're a funeral hearse.
