PostSubject: Ender's Mind Busting Quest   Fri Jul 18, 2008 5:51 am

Hello, all! This here is a list of some of my favorite Mind Traps! on 7/24 I will post the answers and the person with the most correct answers will win an avatar or sig made by Clan, the guy who did the site banner. Well, get out your thinking caps and bust up these mind traps!



Easy

1. A high speed electric train is travelling southeast at 90 kilometers per hour. The wind is blowing westward at 30 kilometers an hour. In what direction will the smoke from the engine blow?

2. There is a town in Northern Ontario where 5% of all the people living in the town have unlisted phone numbers. If you selected 100 names at random from the town’s phone directory, on average, how many of these people selected would have unlisted phone numbers?

3. Picture a ship at anchor. Over the side hangs a rope ladder with half meter rungs. The tide rises half a meter per hour. At the end of five hours, how much of the ladder will remain above the water assuming that nine rungs were above the water when the tide began to rise?

4. Mr. Dodgers and the children in the neighborhood are raking leaves at Mr. Dodger’s house. They have three piles of leaves in the back yard and seven piles of leaves in the front yard. When Mr. Dodgers and all of the kids put all of the piles together, how many piles will they have?

5. At 7 a.m. a train moving 90 kph leaves Montreal heading for Toronto. At 8 a.m. a train running 110 kph leaves Toronto heading for Montreal. Which train will be closer to Montreal when they meet?

6. An old beggar collects cigarette ends from ashtrays and sidewalks and uses the tobacco to roll her own cigarettes. She has this practice down to a fine art, knowing that seven cigarette ends will make one cigarettes. Since she has collected 49 ends, how many cigarettes can she make?

7. How many times can you subtract the number 5 from 25?

8. What is the product of the following series?

(X-A)*(X-B)*(X-C)*(X-D)…(X-Z)



Medium



1. In Okmulgee, Oklahoma, you cannot take a picture of a man with a wooden leg. Why not?

2. Why are 1990 American dollar bills worth more than 1989 dollar bills?

3. Shadow and his men searched the frozen tundra for escaped convicted Sid Shady. Just as they were about to give up, one of Shadow’s men spotted a body. Shady was found lying dead in the snow. There were no tracks leading to or from the body. The cause of death was partially due to the unopened pack on his back. Shady did not die of thirst, hunger or cold. What was in Shady’s pack that led to his death?

4. What would happen if an irresistible force (i.e. a cannonball that cannot be stopped by anything) met an immovable object (i.e. a wall that cannot be moved by anything)?

5. What has two wheels and flies?

6. Based on the laws of the U.S. Constitution, there are five requirements a person must meet in order to become president of the US. The candidate:

· Must be at least 35 years old

· Must be a citizen of the United States

· Must have resided in the US for at least 14 years

· Must have been born in the US.

There is one more requirement. What is it?

7. What five letter word does every Harvard graduate pronounce wrong?

8. Clem Walton was cleaning out his old barn. He was dragging things into the yard and filling them with useless items he had collected over the years. At one point, he rolled am old barrel out of the barn which weighed 20 kilograms. Clem put something in the barrel and when he was finished, it weighted less. What could it have been?

9. What is one thing that all wise men, regardless of their religion or politics, agree is between heaven and earth?

10. What is at the beginning of eternity, the end of time, the beginning of every end, and the end of every place?

11. Name one eight letter word that has kst in the middle, in the beginning, and at the end.

12. Duncan Drivel thought it might be nice to join the army, so he went to the local library to find a book on volunteers. While walking along the rows of books, he sees one with VOLIX written on its spine. How should the title of this book be pronounced?

Hard

1. If a third of six is three, what would half of twenty be?

2. What occurs once every minute, twice every moment, yet never in a thousand years?

3. The arrows below represent a common English word. Break the code and state the word.

7. Which number is next in this series:

8. Hardy Pyle was bragging about his church’s baseball team. He said “Three of our players hit home runs and two of those home runs were hit with bases loaded. Our guys won 9 to 0 and not a single man crossed home plate.” How was this possible?
