Math Problem For Today

If I eat three hamsters on Sunday, twice as many on Monday, and half as many on Tuesday, then how long will it be before little Timmy notices they are missing?

In the physics of the universal constants in quantum mechanics, the answer is always "3".

Trust me.

(grin)

Later Y'all.

I thought the answer was always 42.
Now is that 42 minutes, 42 days, or is Timmy a really bad pet owner and waits 42 weeks before checking on his hamsters?
If you weren't eating them, then after 42 week those six hamsters would have ended up creating 3,357 little hamsterettes.
Of course, wrapped in bacon, hamsterettes make a great hors de ouvres at a cocktail party!

By the way, Happy Easter!

Ew.

But why does Timmy have so dang many hamsters anyway?

Mr. Fabulous said...

He won't notice because he is blind. And also stupid.

Meloncutter: I didn't realize you were an expert in the universal constants of quantum mechanics!

Morgen: They're also good on pizza.

Travis: He is trying to breed a mutant race of super-hamsters that can take over the world and kill us all while we sleep.

Mr. Fab: I think you just hurt his feelings. That means the mutant hamsters are probably coming to eat you first.

This one's easy. The answer is fuschia.

Whall: Really? I was thinking more along the lines of "beige," but then, I've never really been very good at math...
