This will Mess With Your Head. 3 MEN GO INTO A HOTEL. THE MAN BEHIND THE DESK SAID THE ROOM IS 30, SO EACH MAN PAID 10 AND WENT TO THE ROOM. A WHILE LATER THE MAN BEHIND THE DESK REALISED THE ROOM WAS ONLY 25, SO HE SENT THE BELLBOY TO THE 3 GUYS' ROOM WITH 5. ON THE WAY, THE BELLBOY COULDN'T FIGURE OUT HOW TO SPLIT 5 EVENLY BETWEEN 3 MEN, SO HE GAVE EACH MAN A 1 AND KEPT THE OTHER 2 FOR HIMSELF. THIS MEANT THAT THE 3 MEN EACH PAID 9 FOR THE ROOM, WHICH IS A TOTAL OF 27, ADD THE 2 THAT THE BELLBOY KEPT = 29. WHERE IS THE OTHER POUND?

The three men paid 9 each - 27, MINUS the 2 the Bell Boy kept, price of room 25. Playing with numbers and misdirection!!!!! Alan

There is a bus with 7 female passengers. Every passenger is carrying 7 bags. In every bag there are 7 grown up cats. Every grown up cat has 7 kittens. Every cat has 4 legs. Question: How many legs in total are there on that bus??? Graham

Kwacka, I put that number down as well, however I got this through an e-mail and to open the box I had to put in 10.990, looks like they account for Driver. :wink: Graham
