What if I use my new shiny SR1911 and put some holes in the boat!!!
Your feet get wet. Say........maybe that is where the trouble started on the FTF boat cruise where we lost all our guns. Come to think of it......


Mosin- the answer is half come up. Half go down.

Don't just sit there and look at it. I liked the image of you running around the house, hiding behind furniture, rolling across the floor, etc., pretending you are shooting the Bad Guy. I laughed pretty hard at that one.

OK- here is another- oldie, but good example of fallacy in reasoning. Read the EXACT wording. You can use a calculator or your toes for this one.

3 men check into motel, will be sharing a room. Front desk clerk tells them rate is $10 per person- so each gives him a $10 bill. Later, manager is going over books, points out that the max rate IS $10 per person, or $25 for the room- they have been overcharged- give them back $5. Clerk calls bellman over, says take this to the 3 guys that just checked in- and gives him 5 one dollar bills.

The bellman is not real honest- on the way to the room he pockets 2 of the bills, goes to the room and gives them three one dollar bills. You with me so far?

Each man paid $10- and got back a dollar, so each paid $9, right? 3 men times $9 is- $27- right? plus the $2 stolen by the bellman- $27+ $2= $29.

Where is the other dollar?
The thieving bellhop changed the math order. They paid $10 each or $30 they were given $3 back to make it appear to cost $27 but it really cost $25 for the room or $8.33 x3 = $25 + their $3 returned + bellhops $2 = $30

The bigger question is why 3 guys are sharing a single motel room!
