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.

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? [;)]

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.

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? [;)]

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

The sum of the numbers 854,  917,  610 and 320 equals 2701, which is Congress’s serial number for next year’s Intelligence Authorization Act.
Please don't get Kaballah on us  [???]

This act involves the public disclosure (finally!) that scientists have been in contact with Klingons ... and that alien technology is responsible for bringing us ... Chucky movies ...


So the Klingons brought us the Chucky movies?
Then who brought us the Star Trek Reality TV show?

It's the way Klingons count:
8 5 4 9 1 7 6 10 3 2 0

(I won't give the answer here, but it was E-Z!)


I only have a smattering of Klingon, but I think your E-Z code in Klingon would be … 2 8 9 6 4 10 0 7 5 1 3

0 pagh
1 wa'
2 cha'
3 wej
4 loS
5 vagh
6 jav
7 Soch
8 chorgh
9 Hut
10 maH

That suicide riddle is almost 50 years out of date (in the UK) ...

Quote
The Suicide Act 1961 (9 & 10 Eliz.2 c.60) is an Act of the Parliament of the United Kingdom. It decriminalised the act of suicide so that those who failed in the attempt would no longer be prosecuted.

According to my calculator 42! is 51 digits long.

Omid, the number 42 is a reference to this
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Hitchhiker%27s_Guide_to_the_Galaxy
in which a race of inteligent aliens build a massive computer to establish "the answer to life, the Universe, and everything".
It takes millions of years and eventually announces that the answer is "42".
Unfortunately, it doesn't know what the question is.

Incidentally is "attempted suicide" also punishable in such places where suicide is?

While we are on the subject, when I first saw this photo I initially thought it was something from fashion week  [:)]

[attachment=10445]


Quote
A man has been arrested in Norway for attempting to smuggle snakes about his person in a case that has brought a very literal meaning to the term "trouser snake".

The Norwegian had 14 royal pythons and 10 albino geckos concealed under his clothes as he disembarked from a ferry in Kristiansand, south Norway. He had also concealed a tarantula in his bag. Customs officials who found the spider in its unorthodox lair decided to search the man, discovering the scale of the offence.
