    Q: What do you put in a toaster?

    A: The answer is bread. If you said "toast," then give up
    now and go do something else before you hurt yourself. If
    you said "bread", go to the next question.

    Q: Say "silk" five times. Now, spell "silk." What do cows
    drink?

    A: Cows drink water. If you said "milk", please do not
    attempt the next question. Your brain is obviously over-
    stressed and may even overheat. It may be that you need
    to content yourself with reading something more appropriate
    such as "Children's World." If you said "water", then
    proceed to the next question.

    Q: If a red house is made with red bricks, a blue house is
    made with blue bricks, a pink house is made with pink bricks,
    a black house is made with black bricks, what is a greenhouse
    made with?
    *

    A: Greenhouses are made from glass. If you said "green
    bricks," what the heck are you still doing here reading
    these questions? If you said "glass", then go on to the next
    question.

    Q: Twenty years ago, a plane is flying at 20,000 feet over
    Germany. If you will recall, Germany at the time was
    politically divided into West Germany and East Germany.
    Anyway, during the flight, TWO of the engines fail. The
    pilot, realizing that the last remaining engine is also
    failing, decides on a crash landing. Unfortunately, the
    engine fails before he has time and the plane crashes smack
    in the middle of "no-man's-land" between East Germany and
    West Germany. Where would you bury the survivors - East
    Germany or West Germany or in "no-man's-land?"
    *
    *
    *
    *
    A: You don't, of course, bury the survivors. If you said
    ANYTHING else, you are a real dunce and you must NEVER try to
    rescue anyone from a plane crash. Your efforts would not be
    appreciated... If you said, "Don't bury the survivors" then
    proceed to the next question.

    Q: If the hour hand on a clock moves 1/60th of a degree every
    minute, then how many degrees will the hour hand move in one
    hour?
    *
    *
    *
    *
    A: One degree. If you said "360 degrees" or anything else
    other than "one degree", you are to be congratulated on
    getting this far, but you are obviously out of your league.
    Turn your pencil in and exit the room. Everyone else proceed
    to the final question.

    Q: Without using a calculator - You are driving a bus from
    London to Milford Haven in Wales. In London, 17 people get
    on the bus. In Reading, six people get off the bus and nine
    people get on. In Swindon, two people get off and four get
    on. In Cardiff, 11 people get off and 16 people get on.
    In Swansea, three people get off and five people get on. In
    Carmathen, six people get off and three get on. You then
    arrive at Milford Haven. Now, what was the name of the bus
    driver?
    *
    *

    A: Oh, for Heaven's sake... It was you!

    Uhh... Last time I checked, the hour hand on my clock moved more like 6 degrees per minute. About 30 degrees per hour.

    The hour hand actually moves at 0.5 degrees per minute and travels 30 degrees in one hour.

    P-Ratt -

    Did you divide 360 by 60? That would give you 6, but that isn't the correct calculation. There are 12 hrs per 360 degrees, giving you 30 degrees per hour. 30 degrees for 60 minutes, 30 divided by 60 is 0.5.

    However, the minute hand does moves 360 degrees per hour, giving you a movement of 6 degrees per minute.

    1/60 dpm * 60 min = 1 degree

    he didn't ask what *your* clock does. :)

    A closed mouth gathers no feet.

    Now here is a perfect example of why I got out of the aerospace program in school. I actually figured 30deg per hour first, then failed to reduce the correct hand to its minutely travel. You can probably guess how I did on this test.;) The correct answer is .5 deg/min.

    BTW, even if you have a 24hr clock, the 1/60th of a degree is wrong. 15 deg/hr, .25 deg/min.
