1) Why are 1968 pennies worth more than 1967 pennies?

2) A 10 foot rope ladder hangs over the side of a boat with the bottom rung on the surface of the water. The rungs are one foot apart, and the tide goes up at the rate of 6 inches per hour. How long will it be until three rungs are covered?

3) What is the eleven letter word that all Yale graduates spell incorrectly?

4) What can go up a chimney down but not down a chimney up?

5) Is it legal for a man to marry his widow's sister?

6) If Mr Smith's peacock lays an egg in Mr Jones' yard, who owns the egg?

7) A sophisticated computer is fed this knotty problem. Between two clocks, one which is broken and doesn't run at all, while the other loses one second every 24 hours, which is more accurate?

If there are 6 apples and you take away 4, how many do you have?

9) FINISHED FILES ARE THE RE-
SULT OF YEARS OF SCIENTIF-
IC STUDY COMBINED WITH
THE EXPERIENCE OF YEARS.

ANSWERS

1) Because 1968 pennies are one penny more than 1967 pennies.
2) They will never be covered since the boat rises on the tide.
3) Incorrectly
4) An Umbrella
5) No, it is illegal for a man to marry his widows sister, because it is illegal for her to marry a dead man.
6) Peacock's don't lay eggs, peahens do.
7) The Computer. The broken clock is only right twice a day, the other clock only once in every 236.55 years.
Four
9) If you get 22, you did it right. If not, just check your F count. The human brain tends to see them as V's instead of F's.
