    Math problems not found in the textbook...

    These are very fun, I was making them up in math class with my friend Alex. A problem goes sort of like this.

    If Jack has five watermelons, and three grapes, what is his age in dog years?

    So something silly like that. I have a few.

    If Erik is sitting in an armchair in the middle of a road in Alberquerque, New Mexico, what is the chance of Daryl Strawberry getting struck by lightening?

    If John has five cantaloupes, what is his intellect?

    How many dollars do I have if you're a cat and I'm a goldfish?

    Post away, darlings!
    I was in love with a difficult man.

    If heart equals blood, and blood equals human, and human equals brain, does heart equal brain?
    (yes, according to the transitive property)

    I think yes.

    The answer is: I've never been IN Albuquerque, never in an armchair there, and never in an armchair in the middle of the road there. Therefore, none.

    that sounds like a standard IQ test question.

    only if you take each task as axiomatic, which you shouldn't.

    If mark has 2 oranges and peter has 5 apples, and jose have 13 pears, how long will it take to get a food fight....

    and for extra credit, will anyone eat this fruit salad?
