    >>I'm still confused on #3, I'm such a dumb........... Anyone wanna enlighten me?

    Add it all up on a calculator. You'll see. Your brain is dropping a 0. Why? I dont know. I've seen math tricks simular to that before so I was kind of expecting it.

    >>Maybe Clyde has an alternate explanation...
    >>LOL.... I would say probably, but probables cannot exist unless science has defined them extensively.

    You people give the guy way too hard of a time. I've yet to see him post a scientific response that wasnt correct. He does actually know his stuff.

    >>waiting...

    Yes yes. Getting to it. I have to work you know. Pay the rent and all that?

    Upon [re]finding these questions I realise that they are actually a little different in nature than the ones Betazep posted. I'll drop 'em down anyhow.



    The questions are not that
    difficult.

    1. How do you put a giraffe into
    a refrigerator?


    The correct answer is: Open the
    refrigerator, put in
    the giraffe and close
    the door. This question tests
    whether you tend to do
    simple things in an
    overly complicated way.

    2. How do you put an elephant
    into a refrigerator?

    Wrong Answer: Open the
    refrigerator, put in the
    elephant and close the
    refrigerator.

    Correct Answer: Open the
    refrigerator, take out the
    giraffe, put in the
    elephant and close the door. This
    tests your ability
    to think through the
    repercussions of your actions.

    3. The Lion King is hosting an
    animal conference. All
    the animals
    attend except one. Which animal
    does not attend?

    Correct Answer: The Elephant. The
    Elephant is in the
    refrigerator.
    This tests your memory. OK, even
    if you did not answer
    the first three
    questions, correctly, you still
    have one more chance
    to show your abilities.

    4. There is a river you must
    cross. But it is
    inhabited by crocodiles.
    How do you manage it?

    Correct Answer: You swim across.
    All the Crocodiles
    are attending the
    Animal Meeting! This tests
    whether you learn quickly
    from your mistakes.
    According to Andersen Consulting
    Worldwide, around 90%
    of the professionals
    they tested got all questions
    wrong. But many
    preschoolers got several
    correct answers. Anderson
    Consulting says this
    conclusively disproves
    the theory that most
    professionals have the brains of
    a four year old.

    He knows his stuff but he's pretty dogmatic about limiting what's possible to only what's currently known and proven. This is a good base, but doesn't do much for speculation or advancement. If it's not proven already, he seems to think it's false.
    Maybe I'm misunderstanding him, but I don't think so. His views seem kind of fundamentalist to me. But he seems a smart individual, despite disagreeing with him.

    2: If you overtake the last runner, what position are you
    now in?
    Depends on how you define overtake. If it was a track event it would be possible to lap the last runner.
