  1. Problem with Cube

What is the least number of cubical bricks that can be either spread at the form a square or stacked to form a cube?

  • Hilary lost one of the cubical building bricks and then found she could make    

only  one solid oblong whereas previously she could make four different ones. How many bricks were there in the complete set?

  • John had more building bricks than Hilary. He found he could pack them all  

 together to make a big block in three different ways. How many more bricks did he need to make a solid cube?

  • Try these : I have three builder’s bricks, each measuring 9 inches long 4 ½ 

inches wide and 3 inches deep. How many different heights can I build up with them?

  • A sash window with a semi-circular top is 2’6” wide. If the top sash is lowered   1 feet what is the area of the opening?
  • Arrange six matches together to form four triangles.
  • How high is a pole?  :- How high is a pole that casts a shadow 21 feet long, if a six foot man standing beside the pole casts a shadow 4 ½ feet long?
  • How deep is a well, if a rope that just reached from bottom to top can be wrapped exactly 12 times around the cylinderical drum of a windlass – the drum being 7 inches in diameter?
  • Can you help? My friend Raman who sold carpets said that if he had to multiply two numbers together he usually squared their average instead. The answer was always too big but was near enough, he said. I told him that if he was all that keen on squaring instead of multiplying,, he might as well do a little bit more and get the answer right. What else ought he to do?
  •  Take a good look at this number 222221. Is it a prime number?

Answers

  1. 64
  2. 36
  3. Four (to make 64)
  4. 14 (using 1, 2 or 3 bricks)
  5. 2 ½ square feet – the same as the rectangular overlap.
  6. Edges of a triangular pyramid.
  7. The pole is 28 feet high. The problem is solved by simple proportion. The height of the pole is to its shadow, 21, as the man 6 is to his shadow 4 ½.
  8. The well is a trifle.
  9. From his rough answer { (a+b)/2}2 take away the square of half their difference, {(a-b)/2}2. The answer is then ab.
  10. No. 222221 = 619 x 359

WHY DID THE SIZE OF THE FISH CHANGE?

Mr Jones and Mr Glover were lunching together. As their various friends passed the table, Mr Jones would stop them and, in glowing terms, describe his success on his recent fishing trip.
Glover amused by the enthusiastic Mr Jones finally said,
“Say, I notice that in telling about that fish you changed the size of it for each different listener.”
“Yes, sure, I never tell a man more than I think he will believe.”

If I catch three, I will have three

An old coloured man was sitting by the side of a stream patiently waiting for a bite.  A youngster, ambling along the banks, stopped to watch him.
“Say, uncle, how many you caught?”
“Well, sonny, ef I ketch dis heah one I am after and two mo, I will have three.”
Xxx
Loafs and Fishes
During the course of the Sunday school session, the teacher called upon one of the  pupils to recite some parables .

“Do you know the parables, Johnny? She asked.”
“Yes, Madam.”
“Well, I want you to tell us about the one that you like the best.”
“That is easy, Madam. I like the one where somebody loafs and fishes.”

Xxx   Icy Road
For the first time in their long married life, Mrs Smith had persuaded her husband to take her fishing with him.

Seated by the side of the stream, Mr Smith was silently doing his best to make a catch. The guide with them was engrossed only in the business at hand.  But Mrs Smith kept chattering away, asking all the questions she could think of.
Suddenly she spied a step of oily water, seeming to cross the lake like a broad smooth street.
Oh, guide, guide, , what is that streak over there?
Where, Madam? Asked the guide, endeavouring to bait a hook.
Right over there, what is it?
Why that,Madam, drawled the guide, that is just where the road went across the ice last winter.

Climb up the Pole


A seasoned old fisherman found his neighbor on the bank of the stream one day to be a rank green horn at the art of angling. This personages fished for some hours doing practically everything wrong. Not withstanding this, from the sheer operation of the law of averages, the beginner finally got a bite. Feverishly he reeled and reeled and reeled until at last, some miracle having saved his line, he had wound his small catch,  all the way up to the tip of his pole.

Overcome with the excitement of it all, , he turned to the experienced fisherman and said,
Now what shall I do?
“Looks to me”, said the old timer laconically, as though there was nothing left for you to do except climb up the pole and get him.

Searching frantically for an almost hour , two novices at the game of golf attempted to find their balls which they had driven into the rough.
About to give up they were approached by a sweet old lady who had been watching them sympathetically,
I don’t wish to interfere, gentlemen, but would it be cheating if I were to tell you where the balls are?

Xxx  

THREE STROKES, THREE ECHOES!
A foursome at golf were going around on a course which had as its hazard a deep ravine. Three of them were caught and two of them decided to forfeit the hole rather than take a chance on having too many strokes chalcked up against them . The other decided to take his chances.
He disappeared into the ravine and others gathered around to watch his progress. Finally the ball appeared and bounced up on to the green.
How many strokes ? Asked one.
Three.
But we heard six.
Three of them were echoes.
Xxx  

CARELESS CADDIE
The golfer, annoyed at the loss of his ball, started to scold his caddie for not having been more careful in watching its flight.
Replying thoughtlessly, attempting to excuse himself, the caddie said,
Well, sir, it dint usually go any where, so it sort of took me unprepared like
Xxx  

LABORERS SYMPATHY

  A couple of day labourers, on their way home from work, stopped to watch a game of golf. They saw a golfer drive his ball into the rough; watched as he toiled to extricate himself. Then he got into sand trap and laboured, throwing up huge clouds of sand, to get himself out of his difficulty .
Finally, after getting on the Green, he managed to put the ball into the cup. One of the labourers, a burly Irishman, had been watching all this with a most sympathetic eye. Unable to repress his verbal sympathy, he said,
Now, mister, yez arre in a helluva fix.

Xxx  

DISAPPOINTING SUCCESS
A new member of a golf club was led to the first tee. Surrounded by grinning spectators he teed off, and with an almost miraculous drive landed the ball in the first hole. Noticing no sign of anything from his watchers, who were in fact struck speech less by this feat, he marched off to the second tee. Taking his stance again he drove at the ball, and again it went into the cup.
Waving his club as though in near disappointment he said,
Gosh, I sure thought I would missed it that time.

Football and Religion


In Belfast they still tell you about the football game that took place between the 100 % Catholics and 100% Protestants. A Limey attended that game and when the Catholics made a skilful play he applauded and when the Protestants in their turn scored he again joined in the shouting. At this point an Irishman jabbed the Limey in the back and said,


“My God, Man, haven’t you got any religion at all?”


Xxxx

“Girls” won the match

Coach Dana X Bible of Texas A and M college delivered perhaps the quietest, shortest, most effective pep talk in recent football history. His team had been badly trounced in the first half of one of their big games. The interval between halves was one of silence and gloom in which the coach said nothing. At last, as the team prepared to go out again on the field, he looked them over slowly and deliberately and said,
Well, girls, shall we go?
They won the game.

The football game between Notre dame and Yale was in full swing. The score was tied. The spectators were yelling wildly; the players were grimly determined that their side would win.


About the middle of the third quarter time was called at the request of the Yale Center. Walking up to the referee he said,


Look here, Mr Referee, I don’t like to complain but every time we get tangled up in a scrimmage play that big Irish Center bites me. What do you think that I should do about it?


Well, snapped the referee, the only thing I advise is that you play him only on Fridays.

GREAT SERVICE TO HINDUISM THROUGH STAMP COLLECTION! (Post No.7228)

Universities must start M.Phil and Ph.D studies in Stamps

One can serve Hindu religion in various ways. Here is a story about an individual who is serving Hindu religion through his stamp collection.

I came to know about Mr N Ragupathy of Nagappattinam (Tamil Nadu, India) through his friend Dr Sathyanarayana of Pondicherry, when he visited London a few months ago. Then I contacted Mr Ragupathy through e mail and received some details about his good and rare stamp collection on Hindu themes.

He has not only collected stamps on Hindu saints and Hindu Gods but also displayed them beautifully with notes and explanations. It will be a great help to children and foreigners who collect stamps on religion and statues / idols. He has spent a lot of time in preparing the frames so that he can easily display them in exhibitions. His efforts dd not go waste. He has displayed them in various countries and Indian towns and received prizes and accolades.

Though he is a septuagenarian his enthusiasm is great and serves as an example to others. His life shows that individuals also can spread Hindu values in simple ways like this. You don’t need to run a big Mutt or institution to support Hindu cause.

He did not stop displaying his stamp collection. He wrote to government to issue stamps on various Hindu themes. But he is not happy that still the government has not taken enough action on his proposals.

If people like Ragupathy live in London they will get more exposure. Twice a year London holds STAMPEX (stamp exhibitions). There in addition to over 100 stamp vendors’ stalls from different countries, they hold seminars every day on various themes. And every year they chose a subject and ask the students, adults and experts to display their collection in very big glass frames.  Prizes are given under different categories. Three or four monthly Stamp Magazines give huge publicity to the events as well as prize winners.

My suggestions are as follows:

1.Any Hindu institution can buy Ragupathy’s collection and display them in their Mutts or institutions.

2.Big towns should organise STAMPEX every year and award prizes to students, adults and experts under a chosen theme. Theme may differ from year to year.

3.India has issued over 3000 stamps until now. Indian princely states issued thousands of stamps. Now even Indian businessmen have started investing in Indian stamps. Rs Ten Gandhi stamp of year 1948 is sold at the prize of Rs14,000 today (in good condition with gums).

4.India is the country which has issued highest number of stamps for religious leaders. So, people like Ragupathy can do wonders through stamp collections. They deserve big awards.

5. Now millions of stamps are available from over 200 countries. So Thematic collection is becoming popular. No one collect stamps of all the countries. They go for one a Theme or One Country and collect stamps.

6.Stamp studies should be made available in every university. Doctorates should be awarded to researchers. M.Phil courses must be available.

7.School syllabus should include stamps and coins.

8.India with coins from sixth century BCE and stamps from 19th century has huge potential in this area.

9.Above all , Government museums should preserve all its STAMP and COIN treasures in good conditions.

10.When I collected stamps in India they started becoming brown under humid conditions. When I came to London all stamps remained in its pristine beauty. So Indians must be taught to preserve their stamp collection under different climatic conditions. Institutions can run courses for this.

11.Stamps give great pleasure, good knowledge and good returns on the invested money. I have been collecting stamps for over fifty years. Whether it returns your money or not, you learn a lot and you get great pleasure. You may call it the ‘King of Hobbies’ or the ‘Queen of Hobbies’.

Here is Ragupathy’s Profile and Wish

Sir,

I was born as a Hindu. I want to do any small service to Hinduism and so I

have selected new way of stamp collection on Hinduism.Why this?

Because Hinduism has  huge number of books, media’s and religious organisations extra throughout the world .The translation

of Vedas are also made by  Maxmuller a German born 

philologist.

 I have already expressed my ambition about the issue of stamps

on Hinduism by India post ( Om,Vedas, Vilvaleaf festivals such as

Ganesh chaturthi, Ramnavami and Krishnastami). For all these

things other countries issued stamps ; My attempts to bring this

to the present government failed.

So I made a humble request to you to highlight this matter in a daily

news papers in small column in London so the subject will reach the Government easily and the Government will also realise

the importance of such stamps.

Profile:

My first appointment as Record Clerk in Panchayat Union Office

Kivalur in 1961. Till 1972 I have served by promotions in various

posts. And then only I have transferred to Nagapattinam

and stayed at Nagapattinam till date. Lastly, I have served

as Personal Assistant to Collector Tiruvarur and retired on 1999.

I will speak freely in Tamil only.   I don’t know Hindi or Sanskrit.

With the help of some scholars I have done the work.

Thank you

N.Ragupathy, Nagapattinam,

Tamil nadu, India.

PYTHON DANGER

Dad keeps 18ft python in his three-bedroom semi Jen Mills (Monday 11 Nov 2019)

Anyone going round for a cuppa at this semi-detached house in Gloucester had better not have a fear of snakes. Marcus Hobbs, 31, lives there with his two young sons and partner Amy – as well as their 18ft Burmese python called Hexxie. The animal is usually curled up in the living room, aside from when it’s feeding time and she eats rabbits, stillborn deer, calves, goats and pigs supplied by local farmers.

IT worker Marcus bought Hexxie from a pet shop eight years ago when she was just eight inches long. Since then, she has grown to weigh 17 stone and needs several people to lift her. She could squeeze a human to death, but Marcus is confident she will never strike – although he doesn’t handle her when the his sons, aged four and one, are nearby.

 Marcus Hobbs with partner Amy Leach, sons Benjamin and Joseph (Picture: SWNS) Marcus relaxing with Hexxie (Picture: SWNS) She lives in the living room (Picture: SWNS) He believes she could even be a record holder for the world’s longest Burmese python.

The snake can eat a whole deer in one go and has a mouth full of hundreds of pin shaped teeth like fish hooks. Credit: Mark Watkins/Gloucestershire Live

Are you Hexxie’s neighbour? The 110kg python could be the biggest Burmese python in the world – and she lives in a three-bed terraced house in Tewkesbury.

Owner Marcus Hobbs bought Hexxie nearly eight years ago as a small house pet, but the last time he measured her she had grown to an incredible 18ft long.

The current record for the longest Burmese python is 18ft10in, but Marcus is adamant that Hexxie has grown since he least measured her, and could have broken that record.

A local reptile expert claims she is the biggest he’s ever seen.

Most snakes aren’t measured until they die so experts say it is hard to find out if Hexxie is officially the world’s biggest.

Marcus and Hexxie share their home with wife, Amy and two sons, Benjamin aged four and Joseph aged one.

The dad-of-two admits his beloved pet could not only squeeze a human to death within minutes, but swallow them whole. (As long as they lay on their side so she could get the shoulders in).

Everybody seems to think it’s stupid. They think it’s crazy and ask ‘Why do you like these things?’

My mum desperately wants me to get rid of them. At least out the house.

I’ve had them nearly all my life and pretty much every time I see her she says ‘When are you going to get rid of those stupid snakes?’

Do you want latest Auction Story? (25th October 2019, Metro Newspaper)

A MUSEUM is attempting to buy a rare matchbox-sized book handwritten by Charlotte Brontë.

The Jane Eyre author wrote The Young Men’s Magazine aged 14 in 1830. The tiny tome contains three stories, and is one of five similar surviving volumes.

The Brontë Parsonage Museum is now asking for help to raise funds as the book goes under the hammer in Paris next month, set to sell for at least £650,000.

Actress Dame Judi Dench, president of the Brontë Society, is supporting the bid to ‘bring it back where it belongs’.

She said: ‘I have long been fascinated by the little books. These tiny manuscripts are like a magical doorway into the imaginary worlds they inhabited.’
