    Default brain teaser- CHALLENGE

    Exercise of the brain is as important as exercise of the muscles. As we
    grow older, it's important that we keep mentally alert. The saying; "If you

    don't use it, you will lose it" also applies to the brain, so below is a
    very private way to gauge your loss or non-loss of intelligence. Take the
    following test and determine if you are losing it or are still "with it."


    OK, relax, clear your mind and....... begin.

    1. What do you put in a toaster?











    The answer is "bread." If you said "toast," then give up now and go do
    something else. Try not to hurt yourself. If you said, "bread," go to
    Question 2.



    2. Say "silk" five times. Now spell "silk." What do cows drink?











    Answer: Cows drink water. If you said "milk," please do not attempt the
    next question. Your brain is obviously over stressed and may even overheat.

    It may be that you need to content yourself with reading something more
    appropriate such as "Children's World." If you said "water" then proceed to Question 3.


    3. If a red house is made from red bricks and a blue house is made from
    blue bricks and a pink house is made from pink bricks and a black house is
    made from black bricks, what is a greenhouse made from?










    Answer: Greenhouses are made from glass. If you said "green bricks,"
    what
    the devil are you still doing here reading these questions????? If you said

    "glass," then go on to Question 4.

    4. Twenty years ago, a plane is flying at 20,000 feet over Germany. If
    you
    will recall, Germany at the time was politically divided into West Germany
    and East Germany. Anyway, during the flight, TWO of the engines fail. The
    pilot, realizing that the last remaining engine is also failing, decides on

    a crash landing procedure. Unfortunately the engine fails before he has
    time and the plane crashes smack in the middle of "no man's land" between
    East Germany and West Germany. Where would you bury the survivors? East
    Germany or West Germany or in no man's land?"











    Answer: You don't, of course, bury survivors. If you said ANYTHING
    else,
    you are a real dunce and you must NEVER try to rescue anyone from a plane
    crash. Your efforts would not be appreciated. If you said, "Don't bury the
    survivors" then proceed to the next question.

    5. If the hour hand on a clock moves 1/60 of a degree every minute then
    how
    many degrees will the hour hand move in one hour?











    Answer: One degree. If you said "360 degrees" or anything other than
    "one
    degree," you are to be congratulated on getting this far, but you are
    obviously out of your league. Turn your pencil in and exit the room.
    Everyone else proceed to the final question.

    Seven sons she has, this loving mother,
    One is aloof, the other with a temper;
    Four are gifted with rings of wonder,
    The last, to his mom none is dearer.

    She also has two daughters, we gather
    Like twins, close to each other.
    We know one for her air and laughter,
    Hot, dazzling and beautiful, the sister.

    Her name, one too many to remember,
    But all known to a devote follower, to you, To me and to every wanderer, she is Arguably the perfect mother.

    Question: What are the names of the mother and her dearest son?
    Who were gifted rings?

    Answer:
    The mother is the sun.
    The dearest (closest to her mom) is Mercury.
    Pluto is aloof (distant, dark and cold).
    Mars has a temper (god of war, and the volcano in mars).
    Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune all have planetary rings (Saturn's being in the thousands).
    Earth and Venus are the daughters. Twins they are often called because they are close to each other.
    Earth is known for air (oxygen that sustains life) and laughter (living beings laugh).
    Venus is the hottest planet, dazzling and beautiful from Earth.
    The sun's names are many. Sun, Star, Phobos etc. from science and even literature.
    Wanderer refers both to people (who will all die) and planets (wanderer is root of the name).
    The sun is a perfect mother giving warmth, light and is always there.

    Often called the 'father of algebra', Diophantus of Alexandria was one of last of the Greek mathematicial tradition. He is best known for his Arithmetica, a work on the solution of algebraic equations and on the theory of numbers.

    A puzzle at the cemetery
    ---------------------------------
    Virtually nothing is known about life of Diophantus except that he was such an enthusiast for problem solving that even his epitaph is said to be in the form of a riddle:

    God granted him to be a boy for sixth part of his life, and adding a twelfth part to this, He clothed his cheeks with down; He lit him the light of wedlock after a seventh part, and five years after his marriage He granted him a son. Alas! late-born wretched child; after attaining the measure of half his father's full life, chill Fate took him. After consoling his grief by this science of numbers for four years he ended his life.
    .
    .
    .
    .
    .
    .
    .
    ..

    [The answer is: Diophantus died at the age of 84 years. Today questions that require whole number solutions are referred to as Diophantine problems.]
