    What am I?

    I was presented with this puzzle this morning and feel uncomfortable with the answer. Have a go and see what you think?

    "You will see many of these each day. They are different sizes and shapes but they all weigh the same. What are they?"

    Re: What am I?

    I like the answer. In fact it is better than mine <img src=/S/clever.gif border=0 alt=clever width=15 height=15>

    I am looking for a specific answer purely because I disagree with the newspaper, I will let it run for the moment and then have my discussion!!!!

    Loaves of bread in the bakers/supermarket? (Admittedly there are about three different "sizes" but all those different shapes of each "size" weigh the same, if you see what I mean!).

    Re: What am I?

    I like the answer but it is not my answer. On par with Hans, you get a <img src=/S/clever.gif border=0 alt=clever width=15 height=15> too.

    If you ask me for a clue, I'm saying nothing.

    Re: What am I?

    Now Lyra be confident, get the ? out of your answer. You can't answer my questions with a question <img src=/S/cop.gif border=0 alt=cop width=15 height=24>

    What do you think it is?

    Hmmm <img src=/S/clever.gif border=0 alt=clever width=15 height=15> Leif, I see you maybe picking up on a hint somewhere, sadly not my answer.

    You may have to look at the whole picture

    OK Rudi, you can have a <img src=/S/clever.gif border=0 alt=clever width=15 height=15> today although your trophy cabinet has an unoccupied space in it at the moment

    In that case, <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold"> a hole </span hide>

    Anyway, if SuperHans (tm) can put a query on his answer, then so can I! <img src=/S/tongue.gif border=0 alt=tongue width=15 height=15> <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>

    <img src=/S/trophy.gif border=0 alt=trophy width=15 height=15>

    So correct me if I am wrong ( I'm still reading the Book of Nothing )

    A hole is defined as " An unoccupied space"

    Nothing can be defined as The absence of being or a nonexistent thing

    So my argument is "How can they weigh the same", surely is the newspaper puzzlemeister quantifying nothing?
