 Ok ladies and gents! Just for fun, how about a little brain teaser. To start ...this one is pretty easy so I am sure you will all get it no problem. Here we go! You are the bus driver. At your first stop, you pick up 29 people. On your second stop, 18 of those 29 people get off, and at the same time 10 new passengers arrive. At your next stop, 3 of those 10 passengers get off, and 13 new passengers come on. On your fourth stop 4 of the remaining 10 passengers get off, 6 of those new 13 passengers get off as well, then 17 new passengers get on. What is the color of the bus driver's eyes?

 I have one... If a Southbound train is going West at 105 mph and there is a chicken crocheting a football while playing soccer on a roof of a Pizza Hut during a rain storm on a sunny day in July, and there are 3 idiots jogging around the park with a lake in the middle and there are 6,000 Q's around the perimeter. How many doggies does it take to lick your shoes clean if you're jogging through the mud in October?

Wrong...it says IF YOU ARE jogging through the mud in October. You can't change the conditions to get a new answer.

then, in that case, I am wearing sneakers, not shoes.
sigh Again, a failure in logic. NO where does it say what you are WEARING on your feet when jogging through the mud in October...only that you ARE. It doesn't even say you're wearing what the dog(s) are cleaning off, etc. For example, the doggies could be licking off your shoes in July 10 years later....and you jogged through the mud in October in your socks or flippers, sneakers, etc....

ok, first, how can a train go west if it is southbound???? second, how can a chicken crochet a football while playing soccer with no hands? third, how did he get on the Pizza Hut roof? fourth, if it is a sunny day, there wouldn't be a rain storm... and finally...that's one talented chicken...

ok, first, how can a train go west if it is southbound????
The tracks curve....so while it ends South, it can be going any direction at all at any given point along the way. Picture a train track winding around a mountain to climb a steep pass, etc.
second, how can a chicken crochet a football while playing soccer with no hands?
If you've ever crocheted a foot ball, you would know that you use your beak.
third, how did he get on the Pizza Hut roof?
Chickens CAN FLY you know.
fourth, if it is a sunny day, there wouldn't be a rain storm...
The day could be sunny, but a cloud not obscuring the sun can in fact release precipitation.
and finally...that's one talented chicken... This is true, most chickens cannot play soccer, and if they did, they would not typically try to crochet a football during the process. It was also smart enough to choose a Pizza Hut over the Chick Fil A down the street....

ok, you got me, but you know what, it still didn't answer the ending question. It takes 2 doggies, one for the left foot and one for the right...DUHHHH!

 And the answer is...6! Because in China it's already tomorrow and this already happened! And you're thinking: (BTW... I made this up in highschool  waaaaaaaaaaaaaaay back in 1991!)

 y'all ain't right Here's one for ya! My new house number has three digitswhen I asked my coworkers to guess it, they tried: 135, 780, 785 and 732. That's awesome I said, you've all guessed exactly one digit correctly and in its right place. What is my house #?

 182
The 7 cannot be right, because that would preclude the 8 or the 3 from being the second digit, and one of those has to be the second digit.
The 5 cannot be right, becasue that would preclude the 7, 1, or 3 from being used. That means the third digit must be either 2 or 0.
The 3 cannot be right, because that would preclude the 1, 2, 5, or 7 from being used. At least one of those number must used.
The second digit must be 8 or 3, and because it cannot be 3, it must be 8.
The third digit cannot be 5, so it must be 2 or 0. Because 8 is the second digit, the third digit cannot be 0, so it must be 2.
The first digit cannot be 7 because 7 is always used with either 8 or 2, both of which are already required. So the first digit must be 1.
Hence  182.
