    I have played this game before in other forums, you just post a question, and who ever got the answer has to post a new question. The questions are supposed to be really challenging(logic) and not about history or general culture cause that's always googable.

    1st rule: You dont post a new question unless you answered the previous one or someone else got the answer but didnt post any question.

    2nd rule: Dont post questions you dont have the answer for since that might kill the game.

    3rd rule: If you post something dont delete it, if you are not sure of it then dont post.

    here is an easy example to work this out:

    [
    How do you cut a circular shaped cake in 8 slices by only cutting 3 times?
    ]

    If you were looking down at the cake, you'd cut an X into it; that's two cuts and you'd have 4 pieces. The final cut is done through the side of the cake, splitting the cake into 2 layers, of 4 pieces. 8 slices. Am I correct?

    I love stuff like this. I eat it up like a little puppy dog.Okay so I'll start with an really easy warm up question.

    There is a path from a house at the bottom of a ski hill to a chalet near the top. On Monday, Pedro left the house at 8am in the morning and walked up to the chalet, arriving at 2pm in the afternoon. On Tuesday, Daniel walked from the chalet down to the house, also leaving at 8am in the morning and arriving at 2pm. Clearly, Daniel dawdled because he was going mostly downhill and still took as long as Pedro. However, they both stayed on the path during their walks.

    Were Pedro and Daniel ever at exactly the same spot on the path at exactly the same time of day? How do you know for sure?

    Hmmm I think you're overestimating how difficult it is. Were they EVER on the path at the exact same time of day?

    You originally said at the exact same SPOT on the path at the same time. They were both on the same path in the same time frame, from 8 AM to 2 PM, but on different days, hence not strictly the same time, just the same hourly period in a daily sense.


    actually to be anal, he said "the same spot at the same time of day" he didn't specify the actually day, nor if it was both on the same day, he only said the same spot at the same time of day, thus, they could be weeks months or years apart, but, still, same time, same spot..

    Just to be anal about it.

    Oh he did specify the day, monday and tuesday...
    So my argument still stands, they are a day apart.

    Silly me for not paying full attention.

    Based on the time of day. 11 AM, midpoint, if both were moving at exactly the same velocity (as in none of them slowed down/sped up randomly and kept the same speed all throughout their walk)

    oh and yes, they would have eventually crossed paths although they would have been in the middle, they both arrive at there destinations at the same time frame over the same distance, thus one may have appeared to be going slower when in fact he was walking at the same pace as the other fella.

    They just would never have met.

    If I start out in New York and spend a day there, then fly to Zimbabwe and stay for 3 days, where am I?

    Or, if I start in Denver and stay for 3 nights, fly to Newark after a connection in Sacramento and stay for 2 days and finally take a train to Yonkers, where did I end up?

    The answer will be a city or a country.

    even if they had walk the same day at the same speed, they can not occupy the same stop at the same time. Check your physic's laws. (two objects cannot and will not occupy the same space at the same time)

    You're off on the second one by about 250 miles icon_smile.gif

    metropolitan saideven if they had walk the same day at the same speed, they can not occupy the same stop at the same time. Check your physic's laws. (two objects cannot and will not occupy the same space at the same time)


    Read the question again. He did not say the same space at the same time, he said the same space at the same time of day. Besides, Pauli's exclusion principle (matter can not occupy the same space at the same time) only applies to Fermions (protons, electrons, etc). Bosons do not follow Pauli's exclusion principle (light 'particles' - photons, are examples of bosons).

    Also read about the dual-slit experiment, though not related to Pauli's principle, it does add another weirdness to subparticle physics. The electron either behaves as a particle or a wave depending on the presence of an observer, and when it acts like a wave, it passes through both slits at THE SAME TIME. And this is only a single electron, which means it is existing at two different places at the same time... and other craziness of Quantum Physics besides, which I am not qualified to talk about really.

    So the first one is right? You never said it were two questions. icon_razz.gif

    On second one... I'll go with Yonkers.

    But that's like a ~1000 miles from Florida, Denver's ~2000 miles away. :/ I'm stumped.

    Ok I'll give this one, the first is Germany and the second is Orlando. Now, from the answer, can anyone work backwards to figure out how you do it?

    On second thought... You're still on the train from Sacramento to Yonkers which pretty much leaves you in the middle of the United States... though you haven't mentioned the days elapsed.

    Blah. I dunno. icon_razz.gif

    1.- You are participating in a race. You overtake the second person. What position are you in?


    2.- If you overtake the last person, then you are...?

    If this involves 'runner-ups', then,

    1. First runner up (i.e. second)
    2. Second to the last (since no number of participants were indicated)

    Er... I must protest. LOL Semantics.

    The 'second person' is not the same as second placer (first runner up), since if you are coming up from behind, you naturally count from the last. Hence overtaking the first person you come across in the race means you actually just overtook the last placer. And overtaking the last person you come across, means you are overtaking the leading person (i.e. he is the last person you will overtake ever). Keep in mind that you are counting from the perspective of the racer and not the people watching, plus you used ambiguous terms 'second' and 'last' instead of the correct 'second placer' and 'last placer'.

    Furthermore, you're second questions states 'if you overtake' and NOT 'if you can not overtake'.

    EDIT: Oh, I get what you mean by him being the last... yes you can overtake the last person. If you are basing the ordering from the back of the race as you should.
