    There are 5 animals, A, B, C, D and E. Each animal is either a wolf or a dog. The dogs always speak the truth, and the wolves always speak lies. A says that B is a dog. C says that D is a wolf. E says that A is a dog. B says that C is a wolf. D says that B and E are of different species. How many wolves are there? Write only the number.

    Not really, you would be able to distinguish a man dressed in black from the background which would not be black.

    Some years ago I was introduced to someone I hadn't met before. The host showed me a photo of a young man. He said: 'He's the only son of the only brother of the only aunt of my father's only niece'. Who was that young man?

    The host's father
    The host himself
    The host's son

    You burn us in public buildings
    to make you seem better;

    You try to make us straight,
    but most of us refuse usually;

    When we are dead, you are pleased.
    Yet, when we are gone, you are sad.

    i dont think its right.. but it could be that all your long part of your hair is dead anyway and we are pleased enough with that

    on the other hand it could be something completely different

    Ok...

    There's a snow covered mountain, with a trail of debris going up it. A naked man is running down the mountain with a straw in his hand. What is going on?
    bono scared the man and stole his clothes?

    hmmm, ive no idea, i wonder if we're meant to consider the 2 sentences separatey or something...

    i reckon a load of people were on holiday in a ski resort and there is loads of debris under the chair lifts cos people have dropped their rubbish, ski poles, whatever.. making a trail... and this man is staying in a chalet with his mates and they are playing dares... and he drew the short straw to have the dare of running down the mounatin naked
