Stop! Just hang on one goddam cotton picking moment, there.

I hadn't thought about 'lefts' and 'rights'.

You could pull out 12 gloves all for the same hand. So I reckon the answer is 13.

Now, what about that cup of tea, Omid?

OK! A rooster lays an egg at the very top of a slanted roof. Which side is the egg going to roll off on?

See? I'm not just a prtty face. Actually, I'm not even a pretty face. It's a good job this site doesn't use webcams or you'd all run screaming every time I come on.

The egg question is a trick one, ha ha. I've come across it before. I'll let someone else answer it.

I really can't make tea I am serious >:( but if you insist so are you sure you wana drink tea made by me? :-\

Well OK another one!!!!!! :)

An 18-wheeler is crossing a 4 kilometer bridge that can only support 10,000 kilograms and that's exactly how much the rig weighs. Halfway across the bridge a 30 gram sparrow lands on the cab, but the bridge doesn't collapse. Why not? ;)

The truck would have used enough fuel to drive 2km to make it lighter?? Therefore the sparrows weight wouldn't be enough to tip the balance.

The guy was so frightened when the sparrow landed that he pissed himself, thereby lightening the load.

Had he picked up the virus the day before or some such?
Of course, it's possible that he picked it up from a person who was already ill- perhaps the cook?

He picked it back up from the water tap when he turned it off.

He should have used a paper towel to turn it off with!
