Maths, logic, trivia, puns, general silliness - an assortment of stuff too disparate to go under any other title. In other words, same old rubbish.

-1. The Redds and the Blacks like to play bridge. The following statements present the facts about a recent deal:

Each woman partnered with the other woman's husband.
One side held, between both partners, at least nine cards in the trump suit.
No two players held the same number of spades or the same number of diamonds.
East held two more hearts than South.
Mrs. Black held no more than four cards in any suit.
Mr. Black diamond suit was one card longer than his club suit.
Mr. and Mrs. Redd held the same number of hearts.
North held twice as many spades as Mr. Black.
Everyone held at least one spade.

Determine where each player was sitting (North, South, East, or West) and how many spades, hearts, diamonds and clubs each held in his/her hand.

-2. Whose real name is Vincent Damon Furnier?

-3. Fill in each of the gaps with the same sequence of letters so that the sentence makes sense:
A _ _ _ _ _ _ _ DOCTOR WAS _ _ _ _ _ _ _ TO OPERATE BECAUSE HE HAD _ _ _ _ _ _ _

-4. Professor Worrier and Mrs Worrier (a long-suffering lady) attended a party with four other married couples. During the course of the evening some of the people shook hands with each other. (No one shook hands with themselves or their spouse.) Afterwards Prof. Worrier asked each of the nine others how many people they shook hands with, and surprisingly, each one gave a different answer. Question: How many people did Mrs Worrier shake hands with?

-5. One for the snooker players:
During a normal game of snooker one of the players makes a break of eight points, during which he pots the yellow ball four times. How is this possible?

-6. Who took the last chocolate out of the jar? Who did it? Can you find out from the following statements, only one of which is true?
Anne - 'Bertie took the last chocolate'
Bertie - 'Denis took the last chocolate'
Clara - 'Who, me? Wasn't me!'
Denis - 'Bertie is lying when he says I took the chocolate'

-7. A rebus:
amUous

-8. Two men walked into a bar. The third one ------

5. One for the snooker players:
During a normal game of snooker one of the players makes a break of eight points, during which he pots the yellow ball four times. How is this possible?

Scratched on 9th shot, losing 4 ?
1:1
2:2
3:1
4:2
5:1
6:2
7:1
8:2
9:-4

2 for you:
Very SAME rules as yours, but break = 6 points
Very SAME rules as yours, but break = 3 points

Haroula, Remi - both good! wave

Denis - very clever and correct, but yet again exposing a sloppy question. I should have added "without fouling". Honoray cigar, but I/m leaving it open for my answer (and while I work on yours...) smile

The first one of yours would be exactly the same as your answer but for shot 9, hit pink instead of red (penalty 6 points). Score = 4*(1+2) - 6 = 6.

Don't know if it can be done without fouling...

Very SAME rules as yours, but break = 6 points
1,2
1,2
1,2
1,-4 : call green, miss, sink yellow!

Very SAME rules as yours, but break = 3 points
1,2
1,2
1,2
1,-7 : call black, miss, sink yellow!

As thou sayest, one must fouleth crazy

Now for yours...how is a poor 8-ball game Canuk suppose to know this(!):
"Free ball occurs after a foul shot where the resultant layout of the table leaves the opponent snookered. The opponent of the player who committed the foul can choose any other ball on the table as a replacement for the ball in question, and pot this as if it were the intended ball. For example, if the ball "on" is a red, and the free ball is a pink, the player will receive one point for potting the pink (which is then respotted)"

1(yellow), 2(yellow), 1,2(yellow)(no more reds!), 2(yellow) = 8

4. Professor Worrier and Mrs Worrier (a long-suffering lady) attended a party with four other married couples. During the course of the evening some of the people shook hands with each other. (No one shook hands with themselves or their spouse.) Afterwards Prof. Worrier asked each of the nine others how many people they shook hands with, and surprisingly, each one gave a different answer. Question: How many people did Mrs Worrier shake hands with?

WOW! After at least a bottle of Tylenols, finally
(I think) "saw" how this works.
To start, max is 8 (there's 10, can't shake with wife/husband plus with yourself).
So answers were 0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8 (since all different).

Let's take 3 couples (0,1,2,3,4):
Code:
              Mr.W

  0?    1?     2?     3?      4?

4? : 0? could not be one, so shook with Mr.W and the other 3; this means his wife is 0?.

3? : already has 1 (with 4?); other 2 can only be with Mr.W and 2?; forces wife as 1?

By default, Mrs.W is 2?, so she answered "2".

Apply same logic to 5 couples, and Mrs.W answered "4"

Cute "all cases" answer: wife of host answers 1 less than number of couples...yes?!
Like, for 10 couples, wife answers 9.

6. Who took the last chocolate out of the jar? Who did it? Can you find out from the following statements, only one of which is true?
Anne - 'Bertie took the last chocolate'
Bertie - 'Denis took the last chocolate'
Clara - 'Who, me? Wasn't me!'
Denis - 'Bertie is lying when he says I took the chocolate'

I vote for the true statement being Denis. Which leaves all other staements as lies.

So, Anne's statement is false so Bertie didn't do it, Denis didn't do it, and Clara's statement is a lie, so therefore, she must have taken the last chocolate.

...thus for this question (5 couples), Mrs Worrier shakes 4 hands. Neat solve, Denis! bravo


Yes, Flo! grin

I would dearly have loved to change it so Denis was guilty Cheryl, but was sure I'd mess it up! lol

Now now Cheryl...
"So, Anne's statement is false so Bertie didn't do it, Denis didn't do it, and Clara's
statement is a lie, so therefore, she must have taken the last chocolate."

Rog intended "C"heryl, not "C"lara, as the "C" name wink
