Maybe an astronaut?

How do we get this country on a successful path back to what our founders had in mind?


Oh, you said "Trick" question, not "Impossible" question. Sorry.

18 is correct

This one is a logic puzzle that will make your head spin. Hint you'll need paper and pencil for this one! ( unless you cheat and use the Internet!)


Who Owns The Fish?


There are five houses in a row and each house is a different color.

A different man lives in each house and is from a different country.

Each person drinks a certain drink, plays a certain sport, and keeps a certain pet.

No two people drink the same drink, play the same sport, or raise the same pet.

Use the following 15 facts to determine who owns the fish.

The Brit lives in a red house
The Swede keeps dogs
The Dane drinks tea
The green house is on the left of the white house
The green house owner drinks coffee
The person who plays polo rears birds
The owner of the yellow house plays hockey
The man living in the house right in the center drinks milk
The Norwegian lives in the first house
The man who plays baseball lives next to the man who keeps cats
The man who keeps horses lives next to the one who plays hockey
The man who plays billiards drinks beer
The German plays soccer
The Norwegian lives next to the blue house
The man who plays baseball has a neighbor who drinks water.

Bottle and cork together costs $1.10. Bottle costs $1 dollar more than the cork. How much does the cork cost?

[quote=TheRealMacGyver;4885853]Maybe an astronaut?

A Russian cosmonaut set a record for the longest golf drive in history after hitting a lightweight ball while tethered to the outside of the International Space Station (ISS).

NASA officials estimate the ball will travel about a million miles round the Earth before deorbiting and burning up in the planet's atmosphere in 2 to 3 days, thus posing no risk to the station

Default Sorry it kinda long!!!

Three men go to a hotel to rent a room. They go to the front desk and ask the clerk how much? The clerk tells them $30 bucks. All three men hand the clerk a $10 bill and proceed up to their room. A few minutes later the clerk summons the bellboy. He tells the bellboy that he had over charged the men by $5 dollars and told the bellboy to take these five $1 bills up to the three men in their room. The bellboy knocks on the room door and tells the men about the over charge and hands one of the men the five $1 bills. The man says that they cannot split the five bills evenly between them so he takes one of the $1 bills for himself and hands the remaining two $1 bills as a tip to the bellboy for bringing the money up to them. Now the punch line. If the three men initially paid $30.00 ($10 each) and each go a dollar back then they only paid $9 each. Well 3 times 9 is $27 plus the $2 that the bellboy received as a tip makes $29, where did the other dollar go???

Well each gave $10 = $30
The clerk sent back $5.00 Which now means only $25 was given
Take the $5 give $1 each to the three men = $3 plus the $2 tip = $5
$25 + $5 = $30
What you used is commonly known as trick math and it's not a logical way for math to be figured.

It has one more goose, usually the one that was just relieved of duty at the point of the formation.

If a car gets 10mpg on the way up the hill and 20mpg on the way down, assuming that the drives are of the same length what is your average mpg?
