Answer me this.

May have been done before so apologies in advance.

Winner....is....


Answers later.

The Questions:

1. There is a man who lives on the top floor of a very tall building.
Everyday he gets the elevator down to the ground floor to leave the building to go to work. Upon returning from work though, he can only travel half way up in the lift and has to walk the rest of the way unless it's raining! Why?


2. A man and his son are in a car accident. The father dies on the scene,but the child is rushed to the hospital. When he arrives the surgeon says, "I can't operate on this boy, he is my son!" How can this be?


3. A man is wearing black. Black shoes, socks, trousers, jumper, gloves and balaclava. He is walking down a black street with all the street lamps off.
A black car is coming towards him with its light off but somehow manages to stop in time. How did the driver see the man?


4. One day Kerry celebrated her birthday. Two days later her older twin brother, Terry, celebrated his birthday. How?


5. Why is it better to have round manhole covers than square ones? This is logical rather than lateral, but it is a good puzzle that can be solved by lateral thinking techniques. It is supposedly used by a very well-known software company as an interview question for prospective employees.


6. A man went to a party and drank some of the punch. He then left early.
Everyone else at the party who drank the punch subsequently died of poisoning. Why did the man not die?


7. A man died and went to Heaven. There were thousands of other people there. They were all naked and all looked as they did at the age of 21. He looked around to see if there was anyone he recognized. He saw a couple and he knew immediately that they were Adam and Eve. How did he know?


8. A woman had two sons who were born on the same hour of the same day of the same year. But they were not twins. How could this be so?


9. A man walks into a bar and asks the barman for a glass of water. The barman pulls out a gun and points it at the man. The man says 'Thank you' and walks out. Why?

5. Round manhole covers distribute the weight more evenly than square - important considering vehicles drive over them. And yes, they don't fall through the holes.

6. He did drink the punch, but the poison in the ice hadn't melted yet.

8. He either is adopted or a stepson (as someone else suggested).

I'll keep it going if everyone feels like continuing...

Four convicts are trying to escape from prison. They have one torch between the four of them. They are trying to cross a bridge. They have seventeen minutes before they are caught. The torch is required to be with the crossers for the entire journey. Only two people can cross at the same time. One convict takes 10 minutes to cross, one takes 5 minutes, one 2, and one only 1 minute to cross. When two people cross at one time, only the slower's speed is used. How do all four manage to get across within seventeen minutes?

Teflon, known to science as polytetrafluoroethylene, is a pain to work with because it's nonsticky in all directions, the pan side (the bottom) as well as the food side (the top). Teflon is a fluorinated polymer, a polymer being a passel of identical building-block molecules linked together to make a long chain--the stuff of most plastics. Fluorine, due to certain electrochemical properties you'll thank me for not explaining now, bonds so tightly with the carbon in Teflon that it's virtually impossible for other substances, e.g., scrambled egg crud, to get a chemical-type grip or, for that matter, for Teflon to get a grip on anything else. In addition, the finished Teflon surface is extremely smooth, giving said egg crud little chance to get a mechanical-type grip.

So how do they get Teflon to stick to the pan? First they sandblast the pan to create a lot of microscratches on its surface. Then they spray on a coat of Teflon primer. This primer, like most primers, is thin, enabling it to flow into the the micro-scratches. The primed surface is then baked at high heat, causing the Teflon to solidify and get a reasonably secure mechanical grip. Next you spray on a finish coat and bake that. (The Teflon finish coat will stick to the Teflon primer coat just fine.) Works a lot better than the early Teflon pans, but you can still ruin Teflon cookware by subjecting it to extremely high heat. This causes the bonds between some of the carbon atoms to break, giving other undesirable stuff a chance to bond .
