The World's Hardest Quiz - Part Deux

While I continue to put stuff away, here's another quiz for you. Don't bother to call me for the answers, I still don't have a phone. Or TV. But luckily there is the Interwebs and I can see that the Yankees won their game and the Red Sox didn't. Too bad, so sad. 2 games back, 3 to play.

Answers as always next week.
  1. How many birthdays does the average man have?

  2. Some months have 31 days; how many have 28?

  3. How many outs are there in an inning?

  4. Divide 30 by ½ and add 10. What is the answer?

  5. If there are three apples and you take away two, how many do you have?

  6. A doctor gives you three pills telling you to take one every half an hour. How many minutes would the pills last?

  7. A farmer has 17 sheep, and all but nine die. How many are left?

  8. A clerk in the butcher shop is 5' 10" tall. What does he weigh?

  9. How many 2-cent stamps are there in a dozen?

  10. What is the least amount of coins it takes to make 55 cents if one of the coins is a quarter?

These are all those "Gotcha!" type of questions that trip you up on some small point of wording/logic, right? Well, since I have little to no actual work to do today, I may as well take a stab at it.

1. One a year
2. They all do.
3. 6
4. 70
5. 2
6. 90
7. 9
8. Meat
9. 6
10. 3

About the poll:
No television?! My condolences. (Seriously.) Although, since everyone is putting their shows on the Interwebs these days, I suppose it's not entirely the end of the world.

Meanwhile: I'm cheesed because I discovered that I forgot to push the "timer set" button before I turned off the VCR/DVD-R and thus it didn't tape ... (Grr. I can't remember the name of it, and it hasn't been getting great reviews, but it has Joshua Malina and Michael Vartan and I was willing to watch it with the sound off, if necessary, just because I like them.) ... last night. I guess I'll have to go on the ABC Web site later and watch it there. Anyhow, my other two VCRs don't have that stupid "timer set" thing, and since I hardly ever use this one to tape anything, I'm not used to its quirks. (I know, I know: Suck it up and get a DVR already.)

Ooh! Time for the 10 AM coffee break. Thank goodness: fifteen minutes of sanctioned goofing off, as opposed to the two hours of unsanctioned slacking I've put in so far this morning.
