The Irish Community
November 11, 2013
Hello my fellow citizens. This term was to be the inaugural term for CuFaoil as Minister of Community, Office of Community Events. Well things don’t always turn out as we like them and some real life obligations have caused CuFaoil to step down. So as deputy MoC I have been appointed by Bhane to assume his post.
For the final contest last term there was a brainteaser contest. For those of you who care here are the answers.
1. A rope ladder is hanging over the side of a ship. The ladder is 12 feet long, and the rungs are one foot apart. The lowest rung is resting on the top of the ocean. The tide rises four inches an hour. How long would it take before the first four rungs are underwater?
They will never be underwater. Ship and ladder both rise with the tide.
2. A young boy comes home from school. He lives in a high-rise building. Some days, he gets off the elevator at the eighth floor and walks up four flights, to his family’s apartment on the twelfth floor. On other days he goes right up to the twelfth floor. Why the difference?
He is not tall enough to reach past the eighth button. So unless someone else is on the elevator with him, he must get off at the eighth floor.
3. A child playing on the beach had 6-⅙ sandpiles in one place and 3-⅓ in another. If he put them all together, how many sandpiles would he have?
4. A pound of gold weighs more than a pound of feathers. Right or wrong?
Wrong. The feathers weigh more. Feathers are weighed by avoirdupois, according to which a pound is equal to 7,000 grains, while gold is weighed by the troy system, according to which a pound is 5,760 grains.
5. How can you throw a golf ball with all your might and , without hitting a wall or other obstruction , have it stop and come right back to you?
Throw it straight up.
6. What word of eight letters has seven consonants and one vowel?
7. What word of five letters has one consonant and four vowels?
Queue ( there are several others that fit )
8. What is the derivation of the word “boycott?”
Captain Boycott of Ireland.
Yup. It’s lottery time. Same rules as they have always been. Get your numbers now. Be sure to send in the fee.
- Pick a number from 1-59.
- The winning number will be the first ball drawn in the Maine Powerball draw on Saturday, November 9.
- 10 IEP per ticket.
- You can buy up to 5 tickets.
- If you are level 20 or lower, then your first ticket is free. YES FREE!
- You must PM Anthony Colby with your number before the draw is made on Saturday night.
- You must donate the ticket fee to Anthony Colby before the draw is made on Wednesday night. So sometime before 16:00 eRep time on Wednesday.
- If no winner after the first ball, we proceed to the second ball and so on.
- If there are no winners after all balls are drawn, the pot will roll-over to next week.
- If there is more than one winner the pot will be split evenly.
- There is a guaranteed prize of 1,000 IEP thanks to donations from great friends of the Irish Community.
- If you don’t PM with a number it will be assumed the money is a no strings donation to the Irish Community
