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...

Oh My !!...what a looker...and Omid...ewe should hear him on the radio show....his voice makes angels weep !

Just look for someone on that page who could be using BenV as a username...

And I think Neil is just being nice.

That sounds like a teratoma but I'm sure that's not the answer you're looking for!

I could do with a clue - Initially I thought it was something to do with things being made from bone - like a bone handled shaving knife or brush - but I couldn't make that add up.  Then I thought the skin may be leather, the hair wool... This time, Omid, you have stumped me.
