MYSTERY

Really "think about these!"

1. The maker doesn't want it; the buyer doesn't use it; and the user 
doesn't see it. What is it?
2. A child is born in Boston, Massachusetts to parents who were both 
born in Boston, Massachusetts. The child is not a United States citizen. How is 
this possible?
3. Before Mount Everest was discovered, what was the highest mountain on Earth?
4. Clara Clatter was born on December 27th, yet her birthday is always in the 
summer. How is this possible?
5. Captain Frank and some of the boys were exchanging old war stories. Art Bragg 
offered one about how his grandfather led a battalion against a German division 
during World War I. Through brilliant maneuvers he defeated them and captured 
valuable territory. After the battle he was presented with a sword bearing the 
inscription "To Captain Bragg for Bravery, Daring and Leadership. World War 
One. From the Men of Battalion 8." Captain Frank looked at Art and said, 
"You really don't expect anyone to believe that yarn, do you?" What's 
wrong with the story?
6. What is one thing that all wise men, regardless of their religion or 
politics, agree is between heaven and earth?
7. In what year did Christmas and New Year's fall in the same year?
8. A woman from New York married ten different men from that city, yet she did 
not break any laws. None of these men died and she never 
divorced. How was this possible?
9. Why are 1990 American dollar bills worth more than 1989 American 
dollar bills?
10. How many times can you subtract the number 5 from 25?
11. A taxi driver was called to take a group of passengers to the train 
station. The station is normally an hour away, but with traffic being 
extra heavy, it took a full hour and a half. On the return trip the 
traffic was still as heavy and yet it took only 90 minutes. Why?
12. How could you rearrange the letters in the words "new door" to 
make one word? Note: There is only one correct answer.
13. Even if they are starving, natives living in the Arctic will never eat a 
penguin's egg. Why not?
14. Which is correct to say, "The yolk of the egg are white" or 
"The yolk of the egg is white"?
15. In Okmulgee, Oklahoma, you cannot take a picture of a man with a 
wooden leg. Why not?
16. There were an electrician and a plumber waiting in line for 
admission to the "International Home Show". One of them was the father 
of the other's son. How could this be possible?
17. After the new Canon Law that took effect on November 27, 1983, would a Roman 
Catholic man be allowed to marry his widow's sister?

THREE  TEASERS
In the Trio below, we mean what we say - if you know what we mean.

A bus with no passengers stops. and five people get on.  At the next stop eight people get on.  At the next stop six people get off.  HOW MANY PEOPLE ARE ON THE BUS?  8  The driver and seven passengers.

You are seated next to the pilot of a small plane at an elevation of one mile.  Huge mountains loom ahead.  The pilot does not change speed, direction, or elevation, yet you survive.  HOW?  You are sitting on the runway at Denver Colorado, the "Mile High City".

It is noon.  You look at a clock.  The big hand is on the three and the little hand is on the five.  WHAT TIME IS IT?  Time to get a new clock.  It is broken!
