I love the Bull$hit episode they did with this petition getting a bunch of "green" hippies to sign the petition :lol:

it all started with a kids science fair project to get this substance banned....and they did with over 1/2 the city signing and almost 7/8 of the votes to ban it
/palm

it was after they voted that the ban was repealed when the kid explained to city council what it was....

If I'm remembering my chemistry right, wouldn't it be dihydrogen monoxide? Or even Hydroxic acid?

Seems fairly obvious that Dihydrogen Monoxide is water, but then again, I did chemistry in year 10.

What can be held by any, but owned by none?


First thought when you posted it was "your breath" but it could also be a grudge or a meeting or any number of intangibles like that.

Just realized I answered without posting a new one. To keep with the princess riddle theme, I'll go with an old one I heard years ago (on Car Talk, I think, so if you listen to their puzzler regularly, don't answer. :P).


A king has a daughter who falls in love with a blacksmith's son, who she knows her father will not approve of. To, they decide to elope and eventually get caught. The king is furious but decides to give the kid a "chance". He tells his court that he'll put two pieces of paper in a hat, one with the word "princess" on it, and one with the word "death" on it - the blacksmith's son will get to pull one piece out. If he pulls out the one with "princess" on it, he lives and can marry her. If he pulls out the one with "death" on it, he will be executed.

Now, the boy knows the king has cheated and both pieces of paper actually say "death", but no one would believe him if he just accused the king. How does he survive and get the girl?

You're on the right track, but he can only pull out one piece (after all, who knows what trickery he might pull if he got his hands on both of them).


Another for the mathematically inclined:

A farmer (Bob) has a 40 lb stone that he uses to weigh his grain on a balance scale. One day, he loans it to another farmer (Joe) who drops the stone while moving it, whereupon it breaks into four pieces. When Joe brings the pieces back to Bob, he expects Bob to be angry that he broke his stone but it turns out quite different. After examining the four pieces, Bob says that Joe did him a favor since he can use those four stones to weigh grain in any amount from 1 to 40 pounds. (assuming the grain is in 1-pound increments). How heavy are each of the four pieces of rock?
