Roller skates and . . .

I saw this posted on the Mythbusters site, too, and they had a ton of "yes it will" . . . "no it won't" posts, too. My take: plane no fly. Hypothetical situation: you strap on a mini jet engine (yeah, stretch the imagination a little bit), a pair of roller skates, and hop (not li...

It's apt

I've been ballroom dancing for . . . ugh, I just calculated and it makes me feel old: 16 years, and I totally get the cartoon. What makes it funnier for me is that I've been to the DanceSport competitions and they turn it into a contact sport! The ladies have their heads turned way to the left, and ...

I'm no art critic

I'm no art critic, but I like it. Then again, I don't think I'm completely over my love of rainbows from when I was 7, so maybe it's your use of color that I like so much. :) (Hey, does anybody know the proper way to punctuate a sentence that ends with an emoticon? I'm still guessing.) How much of i...

One thing I can't figure out

All you smart people will have to help me, because I get caught up in circular logic at 3 people with blue eyes. If there are 3 people with blue eyes, there will be no two-person case, because the two-person case says that the person sees only one other person with blue eyes, and that would never oc...

Easy! Give your brain a rest

Okay, no cool computer code for this one. It's just a quickie to make you feel smart (but you can use it to annoy your friends, if you so choose):

Interesting book

I missed the Numb3rs episode :cry: , but I know the book that was mentioned. "The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time" by Mark Haddon. It's told from the viewpoint of an autistic boy. Good book, but you might not like it if you hated "The Old Man and the Sea" by Hemingw...
