    Kind of a spinoff of the history thread...except the answers are not really 'peekable', if you're creative enough with the questions.

    Gop_Jeff suggested the first question:

    Walk through each door once. If you will have to end up in the garden, but I guess if you walk to the center of the garden, you are walking "away" from the house....

    Otherwise, no it can't be done because you have an odd number of doors.

    I don't think it's possible to do this in that order.

    The reason is you can narrow this problem down to the garden, which has three doors to it in the center. Any entrace from outside (which is required here) eliminates two of these doors as you go into and out of the garden the first time. Then that leaves you outside the last door, which still must be entered once in the walk around. And, when entered, cannot be left again.

    Yep, I think maybe walking 'away' in this case means the actual outline of the house, and not the 'center of mass'. But if that were so, that would be kind of a trick question.

    Free, you can take the next question if you like. Or anyone else who wants to jump start the thread. I'll be back in a half hour after my workout to see the brainiacs in action.

    He already answered that, so if you turn a left handed glove inside out will it fit on a right hand?

    Not if it's O.J. Simpsons!

    But if it were a pair of generic gloves, using generic hands, I'd say yes.

    Like magic gloves?

    Well, all my daughers fit on the other hand, so I would go with yes too.

    Now make the next question REALLY easy! :D

    Actually, if you start in the garden, and walk up to the house, going through each door once will put you outside able to walk away.

    When you're not a natural blond, you get to enjoy the best of both worlds, so yes, blonds DO have more fun! :funnyface

    Okay here's an easy one...Said is blonder than Comrade, but not as blond as Bonney.

    Blonds are rarely smart.

    Bonney has the most fun, followed by Said, and then Comrade, who is rarely funny.

    So do blonds have more fun? (True/False)

    Who says Comrade has the highest IQ? :laugh: Yes, unnatural blonds do have more fun! (caveat: blonde when one is a child does NOT effect IQ!)

    See, has to steal my material! Lame. :D

    Ok, do all the letters is the words "spoon feed" appear in reverse alphabetical order in the alphabet? Or, if Comrade fell in the forest, would he make a sound? Hardy, har, har! :D
