    INTERESTING MATH PROBLEM---

    You are driving in a car at a constant speed. On your left side is a 'drop off' (The ground is 18-20 inches below the level you are traveling on), and on your right side is a fire engine traveling at the same speed as you. In front of you is a galloping horse which is the same size as your car and you cannot overtake it. Behind you is another galloping horse. Both horses are also traveling at the same speed as you. What must you do to safely get out of this highly dangerous situation?


    Ill post the answer within 30 min.. wanna see how many of you can get this.

    huh? I don't get it - why is it highly dangerous? Is the answer "stop"?

          A downstairs panel contains three on-off switches, one of which controls the light bulb in the attic—but which one? Your mission is to do something with the switches, then determine after one trip to the attic which switch is connected to the attic fixture.

            Turn on switches 1 and 2, wait a few minutes, then turn off switch 2 before ascending to the attic. If the bulb is off, but warm to the touch, you can conclude that switch 2 is the winner. If the bulb is on, it's switch 1. If the bulb is off, but cold, it's switch 3.

              i used to know this one...but i think its...

              flip one switch on and leave it for a few minutes.....then turn all off and and turn on switch number two and immediately go upstairs and feel the light bulb.
              if it is hot, it was switch #1
              if it is on, it was switch #2
              if it is cool and off, it was switch #3

                  Johnny has an AK-47 with a 30 round clip. If he misses 6 out of 10 shots, and shoots 18 times at each drive-by shooting, how many drive-by shootings can he attempt before having to reload?

                        all you must do is first take your trip to the attic put a circuit tracer on the hot and neutral then go downstairs wiith tha trace wand and when you touch the 3 switches the correct one will beep.. I know this is just a joke but thats how in reality you would figure it out or atleast one of a few ways

                            Just one.

                            Principles of good Sandbox Etiquette:
                            Assume good faith - Be polite, please! - Work toward agreement. - Argue facts, not personalities. - Concede a point when you have no response to it, or admit when you disagree based on intuition or taste. - Be civil. - Be prepared to apologize. In animated discussions, we often say things we later wish we hadn't. Say so. - Forgive and forget. - Recognize your own biases and keep them in check. - Give praise when due.

                            Treat others as you would have them treat you

                              He shoots 18 times whether he hits or misses! Nice try buddy.

                              So.. 1 full drive by shooting.
