Weren't most of them already answered?


You have 10 gray socks and 20 blue socks in your bureau drawer. If you reach into it in the dark, how many socks must you take out to be sure of having a pair that matches?

A hunter arose early, ate breakfast, and headed south. Half a mile from camp he tripped and skinned his nose. He picked himself up, cursing, and continued south. Half a mile farther along, he spotted a bear. Drawing a bead, he pulled the trigger, but the safety was on. The bear saw him and headed east at top speed. Half a mile later the hunter caught up, fired, but only wounded the beast, which limped on toward the east. The hunter followed and half a mile later caught and killed the bear. Pleased, the hunter walked the mile north back to his camp to find it had been ransacked by a second bear. What color was the bear that tore up his camp?

Ok, I like this one - lets see if anyone can do it. If you knew the answer already, please don't reply wink.gif

Four spies are captured by the enemy. They are all blindfolded, and then buried up to their necks like this:

CODE


       ||
       ||
B     ||          W          B          W
O>  ||        <O        <O        <O
---------------------------------------------
A                 B          C            D



(excuse the ascii art)

The line between spy A and B is a brick wall.
The > and <'s are to show you which way the spies are facing.

Now, the spies cannot move at all. In fact they are told that if they try to move, or speak, they will all be shot dead. Somebody takes two white hats and two black hats, and places one hat on each of the spies heads (shown as B and W above), and then removes the blindfolds.

They are now told that in order to save their lives, they are allowed to speak just one word - the color of the hat that is on their head. They are told that two of them have black hats and two have white. They have just five minutes to get the color right or they will all be shot anyway.

Question:

Which spy escapes death ? How does he do it ?

Halfway, 'cause then he would be running out of the woods

2. Is it legal for a man to marry his widow's sister?

Wouldnt the man be dead if its HIS widow's sister.. ie.. Wife's sister.

Damn you guys getting the answers in so fast..

And the spy thing.. dunno, guess would be A or D since they are on the ends and can see down the line at the other 3 people.. dunno why only one can survive though, at least 2 should.. the drawing is confusing.. what is the vertical lines beween A and B on top?

The one to answer last, since he (or she) will use a process of elimination based on what the others say and the outcome.

Nope. As soon as one answers wrong they will all be shot.

Anyway, even if everybody else got it wrong, how would that tell him what color HIS hat was ?

1. How many animals of each species did Moses take aboard the Ark?

2. If two monkeys sit in a corner of a room and look at another pair in another corner and so forth, until every pair in every corner looks at another pair, how many monkeys could say they were looking at other monkeys?

3. Which country has the 4th of July, Britain or America?
