Mind Boggler!!

Arthur is conducting an experiment. He places his stepladder on his basement's cement floor, and climbs up while holding a raw egg (in its shell) in one hand. While climbing, he accidentally drops the egg. However, it does not smash into a gooey mess after falling a distance of six feet. Why not?

(The answer is really frustratingly simple and stupid. You will be extremely annoyed at it when you figure out what it is — or when I tell you, whichever happens first.)

Because as he has climbed, the height of falling is more than 6 feet. So the the egg will smash after a distance more than 6 feet. Ultimately the egg has to smash, but at a distance of 6 feet, its still in the air.

is that the answer?

No comments!!😁😁😛

From engineering point of view I guess my answer was correct, a hippo of same size but diff material. And even hers, as a painting of a hippo.

here is another..
A man kills his wife. Many people watch him doing so.
Yet no one will ever be able to accuse him of murder. Why?
Neha
Neha • Oct 28, 2006
maybe his wife is not a human being...say what?😉

This is all I could think of.
aditi
aditi • Nov 4, 2006
no neha,this is not the correct answer.
try it out again.it is an easy one.
aashima
aashima • Nov 4, 2006
Thats because he killed his wife in a television show or may be movie i.e acting. Ofcourse no one can accuse an actor for his acting. Is this correct Aditi?
aditi
aditi • Nov 10, 2006
aashima,this was a good answer but sorry to say not the correct one.
Neha
Neha • Nov 11, 2006
Aditi, can you provide us with any kind of clue??

Maybe we could crack it then!
aditi
aditi • Nov 12, 2006
okay neha,it is something related to court...
now u should get it easily.

rick • Nov 12, 2006
I think that its a case of Euthanasia! The man (doctor) killed his wife (who was in coma for long).

Is that right?
aditi
aditi • Nov 12, 2006
no this is also not the right answer.
try it again.
aashima
aashima • Nov 13, 2006
Aditi are you sure your answer is valid? We have tried all possibilities I suppose!
Neha
Neha • Nov 13, 2006

sahana • Nov 13, 2006
is it something like this.a lawyer's wife has got to be truth(comparison).sometimes a lawyer might not speak the truth to win the case.as a result he telling lies is almost killing 😒 😔 his wife. nobody asks him abt it.

Once, 3 guys went to a hotel. Each of them had only Rs.25 and the bill was Rs. 75, so they were lucky. Seeing their luck, the manager told a waiter to return Rs.5. The waiter thought how would he divide 5 in 3 parts? So he kept Rs.2 with him and gave Re 1 each to them. Hence each one pays Rs. 24

Now the equation is 24+24+24+2=74. Wat about one more rupee???
😒

yatty.sid • Feb 4, 2007
its easy dude.....actually dey paid...24*3 i.e. 72 ...rite?? now this 72 already includes the 2 rs given to the waiter...i.e. 72-2 = 70...which was the net bill as the manager accepted only 70 rupees....!!!
