Raccoon City’s got it! The tide is rising, which means that since the ship is floating on the water, it will rise along with the tide, and the water will never go above that first rung. :bigsmile:

Well, you did say the ship was anchored, so if the tide continues to rise indefinitely, they will eventually run out of chain, and the water will begin to rise in relation to the ship! J) Yes, I’m just being a sore loser! :_(

I was thinking add a “g” to make it gone, but none works as well!

The Smith family is a very wealthy family that lives in a big, circular home. One morning, Mr. Smith woke up and saw a strawberry jam stain on his new carpet. He figured out that everyone who was there that morning had a jam sandwich. By reading the following excuses, figure out who spilled the jam.
Billy Smith: “I was outside playing basketball.”
The Maid: “I was dusting the corners of the house.”
Chef: “I was starting to make lunch for later.”
Who is lying?

The maid was dusting the corners of the house...

yet the family lives in a big, circular home.

Assuming a circular home doesn't have any corners...

It was the maid in the conservatory with the candlestick!

You are participating in a race. You overtake the second person. What position are you in?

1. What do you call a basement full of BLF addicts?

2. Why didn’t Moses take bees on the Ark? (My kids’ favorite!)

3. Assume a rooster is sitting on the peak of a barn roof and lays a brown egg. The barn is located in the southern hemisphere and the peak runs north to south and is 30 feet long. Prevailing winds are from the NW at 5 mph. Which direction does the egg roll and what is the probability thereof?

Gravity states the egg would roll downhill, of course. But the probability is nil.

Well now surely you're pulling my leg

Or perhaps you should lay off the keg

But all I can say

It will be a strange day

When a rooster can lay an egg

What I do

“1. What do you call a basement full of BLF addicts?”

ROFL…….Can you just imagine it. ‘It’s alright lads I’ve got a light.’, ‘No, I’ve got a light’, _’No, no, I’ve got a light’…….etc…….etc……..

Second’s later several million lumens and everyone went blind.
