Some fun


1. Pick a number between 1 and 10, not 1 or 10. 

2. Multiply that number by 9. 

3. You now have a 2 digit number. Add those 2 digits together. 

4. Subtract 5. 

5. If: 

1 = A 

2 = B 

3 = C etc, 

find the letter that corresponds to your number. 

6. Think of a country beginning with that letter. 

7. Take the second letter of that country and think of an animal beginning with that letter. 

8. Think of the colour of that animal. 

9. I will now predict what you have selected . . . 

    Wait, there must be something wrong . . . 

     There are no gray elephants in Denmark. 

Okay . . . 

. . . here is the answer . . . 

. . . . turn the pic upside down: 


Here is another version . . . 


Stare at the dots in the centre of the image for 30 seconds, then either close your eyes until an image appears or stare at a white wall until the same thing happens. 

Solving a conundrum:

A farmer stopped by the local mechanics shop to have his truck fixed. They couldn't do it while he waited so he said he didn't live far and would just walk home. On the way home he stopped at the hardware store and bought a bucket and a gallon of paint. He then stopped by the feed store and picked up a couple of chickens and a goose. However, struggling outside the store he now had a problem - how to carry his entire purchases home. 

While he was scratching his head he was approached by a little old lady who told him she was lost. She asked, 'Can you tell me how to get to 1603 Mockingbird Lane ?' The farmer said, 'Well, as a matter of fact, my farm is very close to that house I would walk you there but I can't carry this lot.' 

The old lady suggested, 'Why don't you put the can of paint in the bucket. Carry the bucket in one hand, put a chicken under each arm and carry the goose in your other hand?' 

'Why thank you very much,' he said and proceeded to walk the old girl home. 

On the way he says 'Let's take my short cut and go down this alley. We'll be there in no time.' 

The little old lady looked him over cautiously, then said, 'I am a lonely widow without a husband to defend me. How do I know that when we get in the alley you won't hold me up against the wall, pull up my skirt, and have your way with me?' 

The farmer said, 'Holy smokes lady! I'm carrying a bucket, a gallon of paint, two chickens, and a goose. How in the world could I possibly hold you up against the wall and do that?' 

The old lady replied 'Set the goose down, cover him with the bucket, put the paint on top of the bucket and I'll hold the chickens.’
