Mental Floss 160

The answer to last week’s challenge is, Q: There are two identical jars, one containing 1 bacteria and the other 2 bacteria. Each bacteria reproduces itself every second. The first jar with one bacteria, fills in 60 minutes. How long will it take for the other jar to fill?

A: 59 minutes and 59 seconds. After 1 reproduction cycle (just one second), the jar with one bacteria becomes just like the one with two bacteria. So the difference between them was one second.

This week’s challenge is:

Q: Can you name, out load, 5 days in a week without using the names of the days of the week or numbers of any kind?

The answer along with a new challenge, next week.

Have an excellent weekend …
