Can you solve this?

Simple math…but a not so simple answer:

Check out this soon-to-be-famous (and/or divorced) couple as they debate how long it takes to drive 80 miles at 80 mph. Beautiful, blonde Chelsea devises a complex formula based on her running times, the estimated speed of a car relative to a minute, and a bizarre need to take said time and “cut it in half,” coming up with … 58 minutes! Hubby Travis insists that using “science and math” it would take — wait for it — one hour. “Chel” isn’t convinced, and is offended that he claims to know the answer.

    This HAS to be a pisstake. Can a woman REALLY be that stupid? Even a blonde woman?  

    • Charlie the farmer

      Hell an ex asked why I was adding apples to a feed budget. Working the math for silage to bulls plus protein nuts and corn waste into mix using “pie”

    OK here’s a similar one but not so easy. Apparently when a Japanese firm bought out a UK company in the early 90’s, they asked this question of every employee. Those that got it right kept their jobs – those that didn’t were let go.

    If you’re in a car on a journey of 2 miles, and for the first half of the journey you travel at an average speed of 30 miles per hour, how fast do you have to travel over the second half of the journey in order to average 60 miles per hour over the WHOLE trip?

      Faster than a speeding bullet jumping tall buildings as you go.

  • johnbronkhorst

    I lasted a minute….just couldn’t watch any more.

    • johnbronkhorst

      So she traveled 1 1/3 miles while I was watching. Why did I wait so long?

  • Dave

    Ah, depends on how long it takes to get their coffees, and how long it takes for her to decide which shoes to wear.   

    The correct answer to stay married is, yes dear, i think your right.

    • Mr_Blobby

      1 Hour for the shoes and yes dear you are right as always.
