PostSubject: The Mind-Boggling Game   Wed Dec 26, 2007 7:14 pm

This came from one of my daughter's puzzle books, I thought it's really interesting to play (solve).


William likes apples better than oranges, and vanilla ice cream better than chocolate. He would rather watch a baseball or football game on TV than hockey, enjoys summer and fall more than spring and winter, thinks Newsweek a better magazine than Time, and is convinced that High Noon is a greater Western movie than Destry Rides Again.

Can you explain why William has these preferences?

Yes, Savannah, you got it!! Cheer



How many peaches?

Joy's father brought a paper sack home from the supermarket. It contained a certain number of peaches. Joy took no peaches from the sack, and she left no peaches in the sack. How many peaches were inside the sack?

Okay - I have two theories. grinsmiley

#1. The answer is based on grammar: Joy took no peaches from the sack - she took one. Joy left no peaches in the sack - she left one. So there must have been two peaches.

#2 The answer is also based on grammar: Joy's father bought a dozen peaches. On the way home, he got hungry and ate them ALL. "The sack contained a certain number of peaches" - past tense. They were all gone now. :Hahaha: Joy took no peaches from the sack, 'cause doggonit, Dad ate 'em all! Joy left no peaches in the sack - 'cause doggonit, Dad ate 'em all!! And Dad? He's in bed now, with a terrible stomach ache.

Theory #1 is more plausible, but theory #2 is more fun.

Hey Rhonda, that's a good answer. But, it's not the correct answer in the book.
