A man is looking at a picture of a man on the wall and states: Brothers and sisters I have none, but this man's father is my father's son. Who is the man in the picture in relation to the man looking at the picture? ;)

It is a picture of himself.

But some disagree on that.

Omid is also one of them so this is not the answer ;)

I agree with The Great Oracle RD who, as we all know, is the font of all knowledge.

It seems obvious to me. It's his son.

His son's father (himself) is his father's son (himself, again). The portrait cannot be of himself, or his father would be his father's own son.

Simples, tssssk.

Three closed boxes have either white marbles, black marbles or both, and they are labeled white, black and both. However, you're told that each of the labels are wrong. You may reach into one of the boxes and pull out only one marble. Which box should you remove a marble from to determine the contents of all three boxes? ;)

Ahhh, finally. Tea, the Englishman's palliative.

That's a lovely looking cuppa. I knew it would be worth the wait. I'll share the biccy with RD.

The box labelled 'both'.
This is because whatever colour that is in the box labelled both is in that box (obviously), therefore, whatever colour that isn't in that box is in the box is in the box labelled with that colour, and the remaining box has both in it.

i.e. if you reach into the box labelled 'both' and pull out a black marble, then the container labelled 'white' must not have white in it, so the white must be in the box labelled black (as all of the labels are incorrect)and the container labelled white must have both in it.

I should have used "Omniscient" as my TNS pseudonym.  :)

I think the site should be renamed 'Ask The Naked RD'. How about it, Omniscient One? Have you got your kit off yet?  :D


Well done Girl :) :) :)


Oh, if you insist, Omid. Laura can get her kit off too!

You must buy 100 chickens for exactly $100. You must buy at least one chicken from each store. The first store charges 5 cents/chicken, the second charges $1/chicken and the third charges $5/chicken. How many chickens should you buy from each store? ;)

Do what they do on Wall Street
Buy one for $5, one for $1, and 98 for $0.05, and then charge $89.10
as a portfolio management fee.

No you wrong :P

1 penny a piece or 12 cents a dozen comes out $1.00 even.

I agree with 1.08

If you buy that many eggs, there're bound to be some rotten or broken eggs amongst them ;)

Oh and also because you probably have to buy them per dozen and for 100 eggs, you need 9 dozen, which costs 1.08

Probably the right answer at least according to omid ;)

What is special about the following sequence of numbers?
8 5 4 9 1 7 6 10 3 2 0
