Puzzle 42

Yay 42! I have to make a “Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy” reference!

“Six by nine. Forty two.”

But I know how that sentence is true! Answer Saturday.

Puzzle 41

Well for #40 I thought I would do something challenging.

Over the last few hundred years there have been thousands of reported incidents of horses jumping over towers and landing on clergy and small men, forcing their removal. These incidents are well documented and there is great evidence that they all happened. How can this be explained?

I actually witness this frequently and I’ll tell you how on Saturday.

Two Towers

Two towers stood tall and free.
They were a beacon of liberty.

Two towers looked out to the sea,
But looming there was tragedy.

Two towers knew not why it came,
Yet the effect was seen all the same.

Two towers felt the first blow,
And to all around, time did slow.

Two towers captivated a nation’s glare,
And all were wondering who would dare.

Two towers felt the deathly crash.
Innocent’s days ended fast.

Two towers’ supports gave their all,
But soon did the first one fall.

One tower down; caught by surprise,
Souls of victims began to rise.

Two towers were many’s bane
As the second one, down it came.

Two towers’ fires could not be tamed,
And now the protector’s lives it claimed.

Two towers; more souls lost a hopeless fight,
But in that loss, a county unite.

Never forget.

Puzzle 39

Thank you, Sam Loyd, for this one.
A sportive young hare and a tortoise raced in opposite directions around a circular track that was 100 yards in diameter. They started at the same spot, but the hare did not move until the tortoise had a start of one eighth of the distance (that is, the circumference of the circle). The hare held such a poor opinion of the other’s racing ability that he sauntered along, nibbling the grass until he met the tortoise. At this point the hare had gone one sixth of the distance.

How many times faster than he went before must the hare now run in order to win the race?
