Brain Food!


I am always talking about food we eat, but our brains need "NUTRITION" also!

Here are a few puzzles or "brain food" as I like to call them!!! They are not meant to be tricky, just use common sense!

Have a good brain workout and please wipe up the sweat before you go!

(The solutions will be posted monday, so check back)

When you come to the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on.

Brain Food #1:

Suppose you are on an elevator on the 16th floor of a building, when the cable breaks. As you plummet toward the ground, you recall that you once heard that by jumping up fast at the instant of impact, you can escape death. You also recall that the floors are twelve feet apart and that the acceleration of a falling object is 32 feet per second squared. When should you jump?

Brain Food #2:

A light year is 5.9x10^12 miles and Alpha Centuri is 2.5x10^14 miles away. If your friend stood on the surface of Alpha Centuri and waved, how long would it be until you could see it from the earth?

Brain Food #3:

The human body holds nine quarts of blood. Suppose you were alone in the desert and accidently cut a major artery. If you bleed at one cup a minute, how long will it take you to bleed to death?

A diamond is a piece of coal that stuck to the job.

I wish everyone a wonderful weekend!!
