Here is one for you:
3 men stay at a motel. The front desk charges them $30.00 for a room. They split the cost $10 each. Later the manager tells the desk man that he overcharged them, the cost should have been $25. The manager gives the bellboy $5 and tells him to give it to the men. The bellboy cheats the men and pockets $2, giving each of them only one dollar. Now each man has paid $9 to stay in the room. 3 x $9 = $27. The bellboy pocketed $2. $27 + $2 = $29 - so where is the missing dollar?

Heck I can't even hardly figure out Laughing Terry's puzzles what makes you think I can figure this one out. :eek:

Speaking of which, isn't it about time you figured EaglEyeStash out? I need to make a trip up there, I'll go with you if you hurry up.

Haffy, you're still trying to crack that one? I bet if Dave takes the log book out and puts a new one in, you'd be FTF in 3 hours:D :D :D

look at it this way... the manager gives back $5... $25 + $5 = $30 - the $2 the crooked bell boy took = $28 that $28 divided equally among the 3 men and you get about $9 and some odd change!!! So the answer haffy is.... SPACE ALIENS TOOK THE EXTRA DOLLAR!!:D:D:D

ok, so i had to think about it... it's not about the final addition, it's about adding to an amount that doesnt exist, each man already paid $10 each. The $30 was then in the managers register. the manager then gave back $5 which was evenly distributed courtesy of the bellboy. So if you want to reach the original sum you have to rearrange your problem.... but i'm not going to give it away just yet and ruin the fun for everyone else... but i'll just say that i had to count out 30 dimes on the floor to get the concept of how the problem formed!! :D:D:D

As an airplane is about to crash, a female passenger jumps up frantically and announces, "If I'm going to die, I want to die feeling like a woman."
She removes all her clothing and asks, "Is there someone on this plane who is man enough to make me feel like a woman?"
A man stands up, removes his shirt and says, "Here, iron this!".

There was an elderly man who wanted to make his younger wife pregnant. So, he went to the doctor to have a sperm count done. The doctor told him to take a specimen cup home, fill it, and bring it back the next day. The elderly man came back the next day and the specimen cup was empty and the lid was on it. Doctor: What was the problem? Elderly man: Well, you I tried with my right hand...nothing. So, I tried with my left hand...nothing. My wife tried with her right hand...nothing. Her left hand...nothing. Her mouth...nothing. Then my wife's friend tried. Right hand, left hand, mouth....still nothing. Doctor: Wait a minute. You mean your wife's friend too?! Elderly man: Yeah, and we still couldn't get the lid off of the specimen cup.

A recently divorced man goes out and buys a brand new sports car... wanting to see what the car can really do the man pushes the gas pedal to the floor and flies down the highway... well soon enough a state trooper pulls him over and says "it's been a long day and I want to get home in time to see my kids school play, if you can give me one good reason why you were speeding I'll let you go..." so the man replied " Well officer my wife ran off with a state trooper, and i thought you were that trooper trying to return my wife" so the cop let the guy go without a ticket.... :D:D:D
