Mental Floss 271

The answer to last week’s challenge is, Q: A woman was being chased through the jungle by a tribe of head-hunters. She had in her possession two solid gold bars weighing 9 pounds each. She came to a rope bridge she needed to cross, but she knew the bridge would only support 125 pounds weight in total. She weighed 110 pounds and did not have time to carry one across at a time and it was too far to throw them. She had no weighty clothes she could remove, and the hunters were closing with every second. How did she escape with both gold bars?

A: She walked across juggling the bars.

This week’s challenge is:

Q: If an average hen’s egg is 5 cms long and weighs 300 grams, and an average peacock’s egg is exactly twice the length and 2.5 times the weight, which one has the greater circumference?

The answer along with a new challenge, next week.

Have an excellent weekend!
