OK another one :)
A business man had to fly for a business trip to some other country, when next morning he decked up and was about to leave the house for the airport his night watchman stopped him and said that I dreamed last night that the flight you are going in, is going to crash so please don’t go. The man paid heed to his night watch man and cancelled his trip. After few hours the news flashes that the same flight has crashed and there are no survivals.
Now the man was quite impressed by his night watch man and rewarded him a lot but at the same time he sacked him from his job why? ;)
Any guesses? BenV or neilep of course :D


In all seriousness, I do actually know the answer to this one......really..i do !


He was asleep whilst he was supposed to be working !!

Again - I know this one, so I'll let others guess.

If you really want to know, highlight the following:

If he had been dreaming, he must have been asleep on the job!

There.

Edit - Gah - you beat me to it... now to look at the next one...

A man has a lion, a sheep and some grass with him.
He want to cross a river and the problem is that, the boat he has got, he can take only one thing at a time now how is he going to take all the things and cross the river.
The countdown begins………….
Tik tik tik tik tik tik tik ;)

I assume the lion will eat the sheep and the sheep will eat the grass, if left alone?

If so...

First take the sheep across
Then return and pick up the grass
Drop the grass off and pick up the sheep again
then return, drop off the sheep and pick up the lion
drop the lion with the grass, then go back and pick up the sheep

Job done.

ok now its my physicis class time since my break has come to an end now
but before i go one last question and to be honest i even don't know the answer my self
3 men want a hotal room for the night each payed $10 per room = $30 total the manger said you charged to much the manger gave $5 to bob (the kid at the booth) bob did not know how to split $5 between 3 so he put $2 in his pocket and gave $1 to each of...

the 3 men so each man payed $9 for the room. $9 times 3= 27+the $2 bob has = 29

Where did the last doller go?
here you go guys

I'm in there: http://www.thenakedscientists.com/HTML/about-us/who-are-we/ - but it's not a great picture - it's small and I'm squinting, as it's the middle of the day in sunny Thailand...

This is an oldie, but certainly a goodie - my dad used to tell it with 3 men buying a piano together.

It's a lovely trick, but the answer is that you do not add the £2 to the £9 they paid, you take the £2 away, giving the correct total of £25 - If you're subtracting the £1 they each got back from the total, you need to subtract the £2 that bob pocketed too...
