There is a mute man who wants to buy a toothbrush.

By imitating the action of brushing one's teeth, he successfully

expresses himself to the shopkeeper and the purchase is done.

Now, if there is a blind man who wishes to buy a pair of sunglasses,

how should he express himself?

OK- here's one... A man throws an object a certain distance; it stops momentarily and returns. It is not a boomerang and does not touch anything. How?

Five swimmers (Adam, Brad, Carl, Doug, and Eric) have been preparing for the Olympics. It is now time for the swimming time trials. The five swimmers each compete in the four different strokes (backstroke, breaststroke, butterfly, and freestyle). The top three finishers in each event will qualify for the Olympic swim team in that stroke. Using the following clues, determine the order of finish in each of the four strokes.

1) Only one contestant qualified in all four strokes.
2) No contestant finished last in more than one event.
3) Adam finished better in the backstroke than he did in the butterfly.
4) Brad finished better than Doug in the butterfly.
6) Doug finished just ahead of Carl in the freestyle.
7) Neither Brad nor Eric finished third in any event.
8) Eric's finish in the backstroke was the same as Doug's in the butterfly.
9) Doug only finished in the same position in the backstroke and the freestyle.
10) Carl finished in a different position in each event.
11) Brad finished only two events in the same position.
12) The contestant who finished second in the butterfly beat Doug in the freestyle.
13) The contestant who finished first in the freestyle did not qualify in the backstroke.
14) The contestant who finished fifth in the backstroke did not finish third in the butterfly.
15) No contestant finished in the same position in both the breaststroke and the butterfly.

loco's made my head hurt....I couldn't even stay with it long enough to read the whole thing! :???: :cry: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Loco,

I stink at those puzzles (the swimmer one) or maybe I don't have the patience.

I'll leave that one for someone else.

Here's one:

2 identical buckets,
each is full with 4 gallons of water,
bucket 1 is at 30 degrees F, bucket 2 is at 50 degrees F,
2 identical rocks are dropped from a height of exactly 42 inches, one into each bucket.

Which rock gets to the bottom of its bucket first?

Here's another:

2 jugs, 1 holds exactly 3 gallons, 1 holds exactly 5 gallons.
You need to get exactly 4 gallons in one jug.
How do you do it?

Have Fun.

rocks hit at same time?

pour a gallon out of the 5gal jug?

its easy

14. ### locoWelderGuest

I saw the movie so I dont count :lol:

15. ### ahspriteGuest

Rocks:
No, they don't. (hint) One reaches the bottom of its bucket LONG before the other.

Jugs:
No, you don't have any way to measure exactly one gallon.

17. ### srdavoActive Member
