Thanks Hank. Here are my answers:

1. How many times can you subtract 5 from 25?

Once. After that you’re subtracting 5 from 20, etc.

2. Before Mt. Everest was discovered, what was the biggest mountain in the world?

Mt. Everest - just because it wasn’t discovered doesn’t mean it wasn’t there!

3. How is it possible for two fathers and two sons to pay only $21 for a buffet when the buffet costs $7 per person?

Easy - there’s a fishing joke like this too - it’s a grandfather, his son, and his grandson.

4. In a criminal trial, what is the relationship of the defendant to the trial judge, if the defendant's brother-in-law's only sister's husband is the father of the son of the judge?

My teenager figured this one out! The judge is his WIFE. If you assume that his brother-in-law is his wife’s brother and not his sister’s husband, btw.

5. Which weighs more, a pound of pennies or a pound of dimes?

Kids I’m old enough to remember this one as “a ton of feathers or a ton of lead”. A pound is a pound is a POUND - 16 ounces - unless it’s a pound sterling…lol.

6. Two U.S. coins add up to 55 cents, but one coin is not a nickel. What are these coins?

A fifty cent piece and a nickel. The fifty cent piece is “not a nickel” - it didn’t say “Neither of these coins is a nickel”.

7. What is it that the people who make it, don't want it; the people who buy it, don't use it; and the people who use it, don't know it?

A coffin.

8. A man rides into town on Sunday, three days later, he leaves on Sunday, how can this be?

OMG my kid got this one in a nanosecond - Sunday is the name of his HORSE. lmao

9. What's more powerful than God, the rich don't want it, the poor have much of it, and if you eat it you'll die?

Nothing.

10. Johnny's mother had three children. The first child was named April. The second child was named May. What was the third childs name?

Johny!

This was fun can we start a thread with these brain teasers?

It was the defendant/judge one that stumped me. I always dread those type of questions on IQ tests. "Mary is 140 lbs and lives in a green house. John is 5'10" and owns a dog, Judy lives in a blue house and weighs 110 lbs.........." AAAARGH!!!

Well deranged we came up with the judge being the defendant's wife -perhaps the gent who posted this could adjudicate?

Defendant's brother-in-law = defendant's wife's brother

only sister's husband = defendant

therefore defendant is father of judge's son so judge must be his wife.

or more correctly the defendant is the husband of the trial judge - until she recuses herself of course!

did I get it right did I did I ???



omg I need to get .....




A LIFE!!!

I dunno. I got it wrong, and after reading both explainations, I'm still just as confused as I was when I first read it. help: The answer key says wife, so wife it is. I read it on the Internet, so it must be true, right?

Dear Deranged,

My son got really ticked off that I took so much time to explain my answer,but for the benefit of those who still don't get it, I'll walk you through it again. Let's give them names shall we for clarity.

Let's call the defendant Bob, his wife Carol, and his brother-in-law Ted.

For purposes of this demonstration, let's say that Bob also has a sister called Alice, to rule out any other "suspects" as the brother-in-law..

So the first thing is that Bob's brother in law could be:

a) Carol's brother Ted (Bob's wife's brother)
b) Alice's brother Ted (Bob's sister's husband)

Now, since our bro-in-law has a sister who plays a significant role in all of this, that rules out B, since we don't have anybody to be Ted's sister in that scenario, and the sister is a vital part of the equation (ooooh back to a math problem - well, logic problem actually - I used to suck at those - I must be channeling the late Jeff LeBar, my best friend and problem solver extraordinaire!).

Have I lost anybody yet? Resolved: that the brother-in-law is the wife's brother, NOT the sister's husband.

Next, the bro-in-law's only sister must be Carol, wife of our defendant Bob.

Therefore her husband is none other than our friend Bob.

If Bob is the father of the judge's son then the judge must be Carol, his wife. Or some freak who has made 17 appearances on Maury trying to find her baby's daddy.

Your first mistake is believing that your brother-in-law's wife is your sister-in-law. Your sister-in-law is your brother's wife or your husband's sister. Period. Your brother-in-law's sister is either your wife or no relation whatsoever. Except in a few counties that don't have Internet access and won't mind if we have a little fun at their expense.

Now if you really want to get confused I'll explain about how the 1st & 2nd cousins and the "removed" thing works - genealogy is my LIFE!

You guys are just too much fun for words. Guess I'm going to have to arrange that pilgrimage to MacMillan Ave. after all to worship at the home of my first big love Burton.

Before you all jump down my throat yes I know the Nellie McLung theatre was renamed after him even though if she came back from the dead she'd be able to drive and he can't with 3 DUI convictions. And I know that in ill-advised moments he's said some unfavourable things about Winnipeg. But when I was 15 years old, and didn't have a friend in the whole world, I called his hotel room when the Guess Who was back in town to play the CNE and I said "I don't know if you remember me. We met last fall; my name is Darlene." and he said "sure I remember you". Bear in mind that I was flat-chested jail bait at the time, okay?

For ten years I thought the song "she might have been a nice girl" was about me; I learned from Burton after the Junos in 1979 that he was about his ex but he also said it had been his favourite song at the time. See really he just THINKS it was about Janet/Janice whatever - my influence on him was soooooo subtle - but really that's MY song.

And when he married a woman who'd only known him for a few months and had not been a fan back in the day, I gathered up 10 years worth of clippings and gave them to the guy who made the introductions as a wedding present for Cheryl - passing the torch, as it were.

To bring this post back on topic - intelligence per se aside I must admit that I am HUGELY attracted to a guy with musical talent - especially piano players! Daddy played the piano until his stroke when I was 12 - he had me on Tiny Talent Time when I was 4 - and I've been "singing for my supper" ever since (figuratively, not literally).

Truth is that one guy I was completely head over heels crazy mad in love with - I have no idea how smart he was - we were both Scorpios - sparks flew when we were in the same room - even when our respective spouses were around. I at least got some great material for a song out of the experience!

At the end of the day I don't think we have any control over who we fall in love with; our only choice is what we do about it. Especially if they don't love us back - or will even entertain the possibility of speculating about the potential for considering a hypothetical attempt to ascertain whether we can give them what they NEED even if we're not what they think they're looking for. I can lose the weight (you know who you are) but where will you ever find another woman who holds a CANDLE to my intelligence, wit, passion, and willingness to let your prove your theories about the G spot (well okay that last one is pretty easy... )

with a comment like that are you surprised??
i dont pretend to want intellect or gentlemen...... i know what i want and get it..... i dont want some punk without any intellect or manners......

seems you are narrow minded and bitter about the rejections .
well if you treat a lady right you just might be pleasantly surprised....the old saying ""attract a bee with honey" ( not with bitterness or arrogance).

When ambition gets in the way of living real life, then the person is not so intelligent. We need to know when to shut it down and realize there are other important things in life. I prefer intelligent men with ambition but a smart man knows how to live a balanced life.
