    hardest brain teaser ever!!!

    I'm still trying to figure this one out, so go ahead and see what you come up with:

    If your floating down the river on a cement canoe and the wheels fall off, How many pancakes does it take to shingle a doghouse?

    I think the answer would solve the mysteries of the universe

    Aight, first off...no no no. There is no answer. THAT'S my answer.

    I would think that since the doghouse is spoken of absolutely (ie, not "Jim's doghouse" or "that red doghouse") the answer must then be absolute, much like the answer to "how many times does the earth rotate on its axis within a 24 hour period?" or, to be as somewhat abstract in the absolute as the original question, "how many licks does it take to get to the center of a tootsie pop". While it may be a jump to claim that the answer is infiinitely absolute, it is specifically absolute. In other words, the licks, shingles, rotations, etc can be presumed to have been the same, absolutely in that specific incident, regardless of the independent conditions placed before it. Thus, rather you were flying on a teflon hamburger and the threads unraveled, driving in a straw station wagon and the windows caved in, or floating in a cement canoe and the wheels fell off, the only logical answer can be the same that it would have been whether or not you were in the canoe or the wheels fell off. Furthermore, as the question logically implies the absolute of a doghouse (and as such a rule of absolute), one can't fall back on any sort of chaos theory bullshit.

    The answer is one! It's a very small dog ergo the doghouse is likewise. One flapjack should cover it. hahahaha

    Green stole my answer. I was typing it and then he swooped down and posted it first. Almost to the letter.

    For real...following a logic chain, the only legitimate answer can be "The same as it would have been had you not been on the river". Your being on a river doesn't change any absolutes, whether it's on a concrete canoe or not. 0+1 still equals 1 and the way that the teaser asks "how many pancakes does it take to shingle a doghouse" can't imply anything but a similar absolutist (even if specifically applied) "equation".

    Its quite easy - of course it is one - it does not curtail how large the pancake must be or how large the doghouse is.

    As biggreen ponted out - the canoe, et al is external to the question and has no part of causation - thats the kind of questions he had to anwer on the LSAT - except much more tricky.

    i'd just say the answer is that you don't shingle a doghouse with pancakes... or that it doesn't matter because you're going to drown without wheels on your canoe anyway.

    chris - that is an equally good answer to say that pancakes are not used to shingle doghouses so answer = 0

    If it takes a baker one hour to bake one dozen of the the number one cakes in the world, how long would it take for a one armed monkey to pick the seeds out of a pickle?

    There's no answer, and the part about the cement canoe is to throw you off.
