Question: Here is one I'm stuck on and can't find an answer:

A frog is sitting on a bridge and decides to jump off, where is the frog at when he jumps?

on the bridge would be before he jumps, and in the water would be after he jumps, but when he actually jumps where is he? ....even in midair is after he jumps..

Thanks,
Robert

Answer: I would suggest as an answer that the frog is on the bridge. This is because the physiology of the muscle requires time in which to act and Newtons first law (I think – to every force there is an equal and opposite force) requires there to be force from the bridge on the frogs legs until such times as he is in the air – which is after he has jumped.

I hope that it is only the frog that appears to be suicidal and that Robert has managed to cope without a solution to this puzzle!!!

Answer: The answer to the question is Noel. Because there is no L!

Answer: If you look at it closely, you’ll see that there is every single letter and number on the keyboard of a computer, except L.

Say it a few times. No L. No L. Noel! If it was a holiday, then we can draw the conclusion that this little puzzle comes to the conclusion of “Christmas!”

Question: I have a scrambled puzzle that my teacher gave me...:

Unscramble the following words, and tell how the 4 new words are related:

The scrambled words are:

refry
ocean
abatsilo
emubrain

Now, what are the words, and how are they all related???

Thank You

Kasi

Answer: It seems the first and the third unscrambled words can be "ferry" and "sailboat" respectively, thus, prompting us, along with the second word "ocean" to a water-related theme. But what can be the fourth word?..

Answer: Kasi's question regarding four "words" to unscramble and tell the relationship of the new word:

abatsilo.......I cannot find any such word online at Merriam Webster; same with emubrain.

The other two:

ocean is canoe (relationship is obvious)
refry is fryer (relationship also obvious)

Hope this "halfway" helps.
