    Question Question of the Week

    visit-red-300x50PNG
    There is a mute who wants to buy a toothbrush. By imitating the action of brushing one's teeth,

    he successfully expresses himself to the shopkeeper and the purchase is done.




    Now, if there is a blind man who wishes to buy a pair of sunglasses,

    how should he express himself?





    Stay tuned for the answer (9 April 05), so you can rate your

    IQ. I know there's going to be cheaters, 'cause not everyone got out of the first grade without cheating!

    But, do not use the internet search engines to find the answer ... use yer brain.

    Why would a blind man need

    sunglasses?

    And I know the answer.... La La La La La, but I won't tell *shhhhh* My mouth is closed

    (hint).

    Mobes, I think this must be a

    trick question. The sun wouldn't get into a blind mans eyes. But if he wanted a pair anyway, maybe he'd have his

    seeing eye dog point to them.

    Blind people often wear sunglasses

    to hide their non-shifting eyes.
    Honestly, it's even part of the stereotype.

    I have no idea what the

    answer is. I've never been good at these.

    Wait a minute, I just realized

    all blind guys don't have seeing eye dogs;but they all have the white cane, so I he'd use the white cane to tap

    out a Morse Code message to the shop keeper.

    I don't get it. He could try

    asking the guy...or he could just act like he was putting them on. I don't think the latter is wrong, but

    that's what the trick question is trying to get you to say when blind people can just ask for the sunglasses.



    It's like the, "Say milk five times fast. Milk, milk, milk, milk, milk. What do cows drink?"

    Again, it's

    another trick question that is actually true. Ironically, the fact that people drink milk should be the shocking

    thing...seeing as milk is made for calves. It's verbal slight of hand. You focus on one thing while you miss the

    painfully obvious.

    How about:

    How many of each animal did Moses take with him on the arc?
    If a rooster lays

    an egg on a roof, which side will it roll down?
    An international flight crashes on the US-Canadian border with

    passengers from both countries. Where do you bury the survivors?
    A man has 6 women, and I take two. How many do I

    have?

    I'll give you the simplest version of this. Tell me what color font the following words are written in.

    Say them out loud as soon as you see the words:

    Green



    Blue

    Orange



    Yellow

    What did you say? Did you say, "Green,

    Blue, Orange, Yellow"? Did you say, "Green" and then smack yourself in the forehead? Did you say, "Gre--Blue?"

    Did you take your time and say, "Blue, Red, Purple, Green"?


    Yeah, that's what I thought.

    By the

    way, there's only one word in the English language that ends in "mt". Without cheating, what word is it?

    The parrot belongs to the

    one-eyed guy with the hook, but I guess he could borrow him for a little shopping spree, if he really knew the guy

    well.

    But I dreamt up another way he could get his sunglasses. Since the mute guy already has a working

    relationship going with the shopkeeper, he could just send him to the store for them.

    Such a

    classy way to answer my question... (I say that because that's something I would do, so of course I

    think it's classy)

    Thank-you, Pancho, I thought you

    might get a kick out of that.

    And now that I know the blind guy can just ask for the sunglasses, I don't have

    to worry about teaching him how to order via the internet.
