Time to see how you did ...
Sunday. 12.11.11 9:33 pm
I figured I'd have more takers on the brain teasers. They're more fun to answer.

So let's see how the three who answered scored:

Randomjunk: 9 out of 15. Your answer to #2 made me laugh. And even though your changed answer to #12 can work, it's not quite the one I had on the paper that I got these from.
Nuttz: 7 out of 15. Your answer for #8 also made me laugh. And I can understand why you didn't know #9 or #12 since you probably write your dates and times different from us and you're probably not used to the different US coins.
The-Muffin-Man: 9 out of 15. Your answer to #9 is close, but the numbers only go to 8. And your answer for #12 was funny and could also fit, but then again it moves wherever you go.

1. This one was probably the easiest: All months have 28 days.

2. I didn't understand this one myself until after reading over a couple times: The time is 1:45. The man gave away a total of $0.25. He divided it between two people, therefore he gave a quarter to two.

3. Another easy one: The match.

4. This one you have to kind of think about, but if you over think it the logic gets in the way: The bear is white because it is a polar bear.

5. This one all depends on how well you are in math: The answer is 3. Division before addition; half of 2 is 1, plus 2 is 3.

6. Muffy's answer still makes me laugh: Yes, they have a 4th of July in England. And a 5th and a 6th ...

7. Haha, this one you have to read closely in order to understand why you all got it wrong, Don't feel bad, though. I got it wrong at first too: NOAH had the Ark. Not Moses.

8. Muffy sort of had this right: A dog can only run halfway in to the woods. Then he could be running out.

9. This one can be confusing if you don't know how our calendar works: On an American-style calendar the significance makes is read: 12:34 5-6-78.

10. Gotta love a play on words: A man's widow implies that the man is dead. A woman can't be a widow otherwise.

11. Another play on words. I'm not really sure what the significance of them being placed in a specific field is though. Random has a point, too. The wording of the question implies that there are only two fields, however since I didn't make these up, here's the answer that was given: If he combines them all, they all become 1.

12. This one can be a variety of things, but the answer given: The temperature.

13. Yet another play on words, but you 'Tangers are smart and caught that only one of the two coins was not a nickel. No one said anything about the fact that the second coin couldn't be one: A nickel and a 50 Cent piece.

14. Some people will just do the math, but that's why you all got it right: 9 sheep are left, because all but 9 died.

15. Even if you used a calculator, that's fine: The answer is 70.

only one taker ..?
Friday. 12.9.11 12:15 pm
Well, at least Midnight admitted she didn't know the answers. I got no other takers ... So as her reward, I will PM her the answers.

These might be more fun to answer. Here are the brain teasers:

1. Some months have 30 days, some have 31; how many months have 28 days?

2. A man gave one son $0.10 and another son $0.15. What time is it?

3. If you had only one match and entered a room in which there was a kerosene lamp, an oil heater and a wood-burning stove, which would you light first?

4. There is a house with four walls. Each wall faces south. There is a window in each wall. A bear walks past one of the windows. What color is the bear?

5. Is half of two plus two equal to two or three?

6. Do they have a 4th of July in England?

7. How many animals of each species did Moses take aboard the Ark with him?

8. How far can a dog run into the woods?

9. What is the significance of the following: The year is 1978, thirty-four minutes past noon on May 6th?

10. Is it legal in California for a man to marry his widow's sister?

11. If a farmer has 5 haystacks in one field and 4 haystacks in the other field, how many haystacks would he have if combined them all in the center field?

12. What is it that goes up and down, but does not move?

13. I have in my hand only 2 US coins which total $0.55 in value. One is not a nickel. What are the coins?

14. A farmer has 17 sheep. All but 9 die. How many did he have left?

15. Divide 30 by 1/2 and add ten. What is the answer?

something to ponder ...
Friday. 12.2.11 10:45 am
... and no cheating!!!

I found some old papers that I have with brain teasers and 'obvious' questions on them and I figured I'd share.

"Obvious" questions today ... in a few days I'll post the answers. This will give you some time to guess. I'll post up the brain teaser questions in the same post as the "obvious" answers in a few days.

"Obvious" Questions:

1. How long is the Hundred Year War?

2. Which country makes Panama hats?

3. From which animal do we get catgut?

4. In which month do Russians celebrate the October revolution?

5. What is a camel's hair brush made of?

6. The Canary Islands in the Pacific are named after what animal?

7. What was King George VI's first name?

8. What color is a purple finch?

9. Where are Chinese gooseberries from?

10. How long did the Thirty Year War last?

you can't have one without the other

There are things that make me smile. They make me laugh and really enjoy this thing called life.

Yet there always seems to be something right around the corner to either counteract it or outweigh it entirely. It makes the "high" feeling vanish and all that's left is ... despair isn't the right word, but it's the only one that comes to mind.

It's weird how much the simple, three-letter word "our" can make my day. Even when it's not said in the way that my mind wants to understand it as. Yet when all that would make me smile is a simple look back ... it doesn't happen.

I'm usually okay with the holidays, but this year is different. I'm not in the relationship I was during the last few years. He's still there, but yet, not. Last holiday season was our first together ... and our only together.

The two years before that, it still involved family and others; last year it was just us. This year it's back to being just me.

I am in a better place from a few months ago, but only slightly. People at work have noticed that I'm happier. Maybe I am. Or maybe I'm just playing it at work.

I haven't cried in a while, but I feel like I should. Maybe if I hold it in some more, the feeling will go away.

practice
Saturday. 11.19.11 11:55 pm
So the first half of work was alright. I pretty much just bullshitted around. I did a partial patrol, but nothing like what I should have done. There was this huge crane at work, though and watching it do it's thing was fascinating. They needed it so that they could replace an HVAC system on the roof of one of the buildings. The HVAC that was being installed was about the size of a bus. I wish I had taken video or at least some pictures. Oh well. The second half of work was bullshit. So boring. I'm glad I've got the next two days off. At least from there. I still have PAWS tomorrow.

Yesterday our daily log system on the computer decided it wanted to stop working and since everything we do still has to be recorded, we have to hand write everything out. I didn't realize how out of practice I was on writing for a long period of time until this happened. In high school I would write a ton of notes in class, then go home and rewrite them over and over until they were perfect. I would write pages of stories at a time without having to take a break. Now, I could barely get through 10 different entries before my hand started to cramp up. It was ridiculous. The more I wrote, though, the more I got used to it. I do like writing, but I hope the Sharepoint program has been fixed by the time I go back to work on Tuesday. It's just much easier to type everything out. You don't get a hand cramp from holding the pen and the backspace button works a lot better than messing up with a pen and having to start all over again. See, with it being a legal document, I can't use white out because that's considered altering the document which is illegal.

Anywho, I wanted to rant about that earlier, but I was busy finishing writing before the end of my shift. Alrighty, I think that's it for now.

Until next time NuTang ...
