  • My name sounds like a bird
    Whole body is like tongue of a lizard
    Am different colors
    And I well can be very littered

    My energy melts away over time
    But not quite like an ice
    And when not taken care of
    I’ll collect dust and lice


    Hint: It’s not a food. And it is quite sticky.

  • A married couple went to the hospital to have theit baby delivered. Upon their arrival, the doctor said he had invented a new machine that would transfer a portion of the mother’s labor pain to the baby’s father. He was asked if they were willing to try it out. They were both very much in favor of it. The doctor set the pain transfer to 10% for starters, explaining that even 10% was probably more pain than the father had ever experienced before. However, as the labor progressed, the husband felt fine and asked the doctor to go ahead and kick it up a notch. The doctor then adjusted the machine to 20% pain transfer. The husband was still feeling fine. The doctor checked the husband’s blood pressure and was amazed at how well he was doing. At this point, they decided to try out for 50%. The husband continued to feel quite well. Since the pain transfer was obviously helping out the wife considerably, the husband encouraged the doctor to transfer all the pain to him. The wife delivered a healthy baby with virtually no pain. She and her husband were ecstatic. When they got home, the mailman was dead on the porch.

  • You have two coconuts and you want to find out how high they can be dropped from a 100 story building before they break. But you only have $1.40 and the elevator costs a dime each time you ride it up (it’s free for rides down).

    How can you drop the coconuts to guarantee you will find the lowest floor they will break at, while starting and ending at floor 1?

    Note: They break when dropped from the same height and they don’t weaken from getting dropped.

Otherwise, he goes to the seventh floor and walks up three flights of stairs to his apartment.
    Can you explain why?

  • Three people check into a hotel.

    They pay £30 to the manager and go to their room.

    The manager suddenly remembers that the room rate is £25 and gives £5 to the bellboy to return to the people.

    On the way to the room the bellboy reasons that £5 would be difficult to share among three people so he pockets £2 and gives £1 to each person.

    Now each person paid £10 and got back £1.

    So they paid £9 each, totalling £27. The bellboy has £2, totalling £29.

    Where is the missing £1?
