Monday Morning Mindbenders

26 Sep

Monday starts out kinda slow, after the weekend. Nothing like a few mindbenders to shake off the cobwebs…

Answers later in the day! Happy Monday!

Edit: Highlight below for answers (hidden for those who like to figure it out on their own):

there are six eggs in the basket…
The last person took the basket with the last egg still inside.

there was once a recluse who never left his home…
He was a lighthouse keeper who switched off the lighthouse

acting on an anonymous phone call, the police raid a house to arrest a suspected murderer…
The fireman is the only man in the room. The rest of the poker players are women.

three of the glasses are filled with orange juice…
Pour the juice from the second glass into the fifth glass

    I think everyone should contact AttackWatch, and report the Tea Party for making incendiary comments this weekend:

    “You’ve got a governor whose state is on fire denying climate change,” he said, to applause. “It’s true. You’ve got audiences cheering at the prospect of somebody dying because they don’t have health care and booing a service member in Iraq because they’re gay.

    Oh wait, never mind, that was the President at a fundraiser.

  5. LC Aggie Sith September 26, 2011 at 10:16 am #

  7. LC Aggie Sith September 26, 2011 at 10:28 am #

    Today I feel a bit better, and had the courage to look in the mirror.

    Oy…

  8. Jay in Ames September 26, 2011 at 10:28 am #

    Bout time you woke up.

    Feeling better?

  9. Jay in Ames September 26, 2011 at 10:29 am #

    wakey wakey.

    I’ve got two of the four. and i guess on another.

  12. LC Aggie Sith September 26, 2011 at 10:39 am #

    J’Ames, where can we submit the answers??

  13. Jay in Ames September 26, 2011 at 10:44 am #

    I’ll put it in the comments later. It’s just for fun, anyway.

    Unless you think I should put it in the poat. I see there is a plugin available to hide text, but I don’t think I should update the site without permission from someone.

  14. LC Aggie Sith September 26, 2011 at 10:51 am #

    Later is fine. It was fun trying to figure them out while still delirious from last night’s meds 😀

  15. Jay in Ames September 26, 2011 at 10:52 am #

    Never mind, just changed the text color (duh). Highlight above the *end highlight to check your answers.

  16. LC Aggie Sith September 26, 2011 at 11:00 am #

    Hey! I got them all correct!!

    It paid off to be delirious 😀

  17. Jay in Ames September 26, 2011 at 11:38 am #

    A sad day, indeed…
    chron.com: Doritos creator dies in Dallas at 97

  18. Jay in Ames September 26, 2011 at 11:51 am #

    Ya know, if you read my comment, then look up, delirious starts to look like delicious.

    Just sayin.

  19. LC Aggie Sith September 26, 2011 at 11:56 am #

    Awwww, that is sad, but he had a long life, and gave joy to many people.

    Now I want Doritos.

    Remember the Peace Blimp?

    This could be just as good: Whitehouse.gov: We the People: Your Voice in Our Government

    At least we know what the AttackWatch website creator is doing now that his creation is in “full swing”.

  21. LC Aggie Sith September 26, 2011 at 12:08 pm #

    Oh right…

    Because we have never been able to do petitions before.

    This is just a way to gather even more information about those who would petition the government with grievances.

  22. Jay in Ames September 26, 2011 at 12:09 pm #

    Good news for Texas!

  23. LC Aggie Sith September 26, 2011 at 12:19 pm #

    DAMNIT!!!

    I can’t go 😦

  24. Teresa in Fort Worth, TX September 26, 2011 at 1:01 pm #

    Got #2, #3, and #4 without looking –

    I woke everyone up on the wrong post this morning (in all fairness, there wasn’t a new poat up yet…..) –

  25. LC Aggie Sith September 26, 2011 at 1:08 pm #

    J’Ames, the consummate gent, was kind enough to do the poat.

    I was off puking a lung.

  26. Jay in Ames September 26, 2011 at 3:26 pm #

    Ding dong, the poat is dead!

  27. Stinky's Dad September 26, 2011 at 3:34 pm #

    From a phone call today:

    Mooch Chinese house flipper: Give me your best price on this job and I’ll give you more work.

    Me: $900.00

    MCHF: (pause and suddenly his cheesy Chinese accent goes further south) Is that your best price?

    Me: Let me put ya on hold and check the figures.

    5 minutes later…

    Me: My mistake. It’s $1100.00

    MCHF: Ahhhhh!!!!! You go higher!

    Me: Thanks for letting me catch my mistake.

  28. Jay in Ames September 26, 2011 at 3:44 pm #

    Niiiiiice. Did you understand the response?

  29. Jay in Ames September 26, 2011 at 3:45 pm #

    Do you watch house restoration shows? I would love to see one of those guys negotiate with you on a bid.

  30. LC Aggie Sith September 26, 2011 at 4:08 pm #

    SD FTW!!!

    Yeah, sorry I let the poat die. I was not willing to puke my lung over the keyboard.

  31. Stinky's Dad September 26, 2011 at 4:13 pm #

    He became extra confused when I gave him a higher price. I then told him to call me whenever he felt the urge. Hopefully his sorry ass won’t ever feel that urge.

  32. Stinky's Dad September 26, 2011 at 4:17 pm #

    Jay, I hate negotiating so I always immediately try to submarine the deal to a huge advantage on my end. Hell, if I were reading a script, I’d still do the same thing.

  33. Jay in Ames September 26, 2011 at 4:17 pm #

    Should have said “Do you want to go to Double Jeopardy, where the scores can really change?”

    I’ll bet his head would have popped, if he understood the reference.

  34. Jay in Ames September 26, 2011 at 4:20 pm #

    Sounds like estimating projects that haven’t been fully defined, yet. Take the estimate, and multiply it by 4.

  35. Teresa in Fort Worth, TX September 26, 2011 at 4:26 pm #

    TiFW ♥’s Dick (SYWM).

    Sorry you’re feeling so badly, Aggie – stomach bug, or the “crud that won’t die” that’s been playing ping-pong at the TiFW house? (Mr. TiFW and I have been comparing our Harvey Fierstein voices all week long)

    Mucinex DM – it’s a lifesaver……

  36. Stinky's Dad September 26, 2011 at 4:34 pm #

    TiFW ♥’s Dick LET’S TRY TO KEEP THIS QUIET AROUND KELLY AND MR.TIFW!

    Jay, the whole process gives my tired-head so I have a tendency to cut off the bungholes (Indians with a dot/Arabs/Chinese) I know who are gonna want to play games. The worst are the goddamned Indians.

  37. Teresa in Fort Worth, TX September 26, 2011 at 4:49 pm #

    We just received a notification in the mail that many of the services that people currently on the CLASS program can receive under Medicaid (Rebecca qualifies independently of our insurance and was on a waiting list for 6 years, so when her name came up, we jumped at the chance) are going to be DECREASED to save costs to the state. (Of course, the government currently wants more money to increase the number of people on these programs)

    Thanks, Obama!

    Oh, Mr. TiFW already knows…… 😛

  39. Stinky's Dad September 26, 2011 at 4:53 pm #

    Teresa, was that the little tri-fold letter, cause Kelly got the same scam.

    It’s a total scam.

    “Do you want to go to Double Jeopardy, where the scores can really change?”

    OMG… I remember one time at a family reunion, someone said that while I was serving potato salad and before I could stop myself I said,

    YIPPEE KAY YAY, MOTHERFUCKER!!

    Thank goodness most of the relatives were deaf. The younger ones were laughing their asses off.

  42. LC Aggie Sith September 26, 2011 at 5:01 pm #

    That car is sure stunning.

    Why do I find this amusing?

    Yes, I am going to hell.

  45. Teresa in Fort Worth, TX September 26, 2011 at 5:11 pm #

    Teresa, was that the little tri-fold letter, cause Kelly got the same scam.

    No, this was from the Texas Department of Aging and Disability Services – Rebecca has been on the program for almost 4 years now. It’s something that she will be receiving benefits from for her lifetime – it’s to help her be able to live semi-independently, rather than in a State School or large group home (although if she decides to live in a small group home when she gets older, she can certainly opt to do that).

    Right now, she receives in-home attendant care, music therapy, and massage therapy, and the program paid to install a fence around our front yard to allow her to play close to home.

    Since the waiting list was so long, we added her name to it when she was 6 months old – we didn’t think her name would come up until she was 10 or older. Once her name came up, we were advised to take what was offered, whether we thought we might need it or not, because otherwise, she would have to go to the bottom of the list and continue to wait until her name came up again.

    It is called the CLASS program, but it is different from Obamacare’s vision of the future CLASS program (even though the acronym stands for the same words).

  46. Stinky's Dad September 26, 2011 at 5:14 pm #

    Okay, this deal we keep getting is some scam that claims Kelly is a senior citizen and on Medicare.

    In other news, the Rick Perry campaign is moving along as scheduled.

    SD, I was LMAO over that story.

    Feeding the piranhas will not help the situation. They are TRAINING them to come eat.

    Fucking morons…

    Never ever go over peter deep in the ocean.

  50. Teresa in Fort Worth, TX September 26, 2011 at 7:31 pm #

    The ocean is probably OK – it’s all of those rivers and streams that you have to worry about…..

  51. Stinky's Dad September 26, 2011 at 7:44 pm #

    I’ve crossed (waded) plenty of rivers full of piranha. Never got chewed on once.

  52. Jay in Ames September 26, 2011 at 10:40 pm #
