Here's the deal. 10 question quiz, all dealing with logic. Problem difficulty varies. Winner gets a COOKIE! 1. If it takes 5 minutes to make one cut across a log, how long will it take to cut a 5 foot log into 5 equal segments? 2. How can 2 fathers and 2 sons divide 3 cars among themselves, each recieving a car? 3. Some months have 31 days, and others have 30. How many months have 28 days? 4. If a doctor gave you 3 pills and told you to take one every half hour, how long would the pills last? 5. I have 2 U.S coins with a total value of 55 cents. One is not a nickel. What are the 2 coins? 6. Two men are playing chess. Each man plays 5 games. They both win the same amount of games, but they never tie. How is this possible? 7. Why can't a man living in St. Louis be buried in Illinois? 8. If dirt weighs 100 lbs. per cubic foot, what is the total weight of dirt in a hole 3 feet square by 2 feet deep? 9. If you had only one match and entered a dark room in which there was a kerosene lamp, an oil burner, and a wood burning stove, which would you light first and why? 10. Is there a 4th of July in England? =-High Scores-= This will not include everyone's score!

    I'm assuming someone has already gotten all ten, but I haven't read past the first post, so I'll throw my answers out there as well. 1. 20 minutes. The first cut divides the log into 2 pieces, the second cut would make 3 pieces, etc..., all the way to 4 cuts. 2. If it is a Grandfather, his son, and his grandson, they would be able to do it. 3. Every single month (all 12), have at least 28 days in them. 4. Assuming you take the first pill right away, the 2nd would be taken in 30 minutes, and the third and final pill would be taken at the 1 hour mark. 5. A 50 cent piece and a nickel. Only one of them is not a nickel. 6. The two men are not playing against each other. 7. He is still living, and therefore should not be buried. 8. There is technically no dirt in the hole, so it wouldn't weigh anything. 9. I would light the match first, so as to light the other things next. 10. Yes there is a 4th of July in England. It is not, however, their Independence Day. I do logic in my sleep. Keep trying Momentum. :)
