Not only do they come in lots of shapes and sizes, but they are versatile, tough, and very enduring. There is one in particular, under the outdoors section, that caught my eye.

Some Unsolvable Puzzles

The Mutilated chessboard
Question: Suppose a standard 8x8 chessboard has two diagonally opposite corners removed, leaving 62 squares. Is it possible to place 31 dominoes of size 2x1 so as to cover all of these squares?
Answer: The puzzle is impossible. Any way you would place a domino would cover one white square and one black square. A group of 31 dominoes would cover 31 white and 31 black squares of an unmutilated chessboard, leaving one white and one black square uncovered. The directions had you remove diagonally opposite corner squares, and such squares are always either both black or both white.

The three cottage problem

Question: Suppose there are three cottages on a plane (or sphere) and each needs to be connected to the gas, water, and electric companies. Using a third dimension or sending any of the connections through another company or cottage are disallowed. Is there a way to make all nine connections without any of the lines crossing each other?
Answer: There is no correct solution: it is impossible to connect the three cottages with the three different utilities without at least one of the connections crossing another.

The three cup problem
Problem: Starting with three cups place one upside down and two right side up. The objective is to eventually turn all cups right side up in six moves. You must turn exactly two cups over each turn.
Answer: The puzzle is impossible. An even number of cups are facing up and you are allowed to turn two over at a time. Since an even plus an even is an even, not an odd, no number of even flips will ever get all the three cups face up. You need an odd number of cups facing up, so the problem is impossible. The possible version of this puzzle is to start with two cups facing down and one cup facing upward. This is possible. Turn up an even number (two) of cups, and all the cups are facing up; an odd plus an even is an odd (1+2 = 3).

Funny news for today

Killer rabbits attack snakes

killer rabbitA PAIR of rabid rabbits has been caught killing a series of snakes near Cairns.

For three weeks Armando Del Manso believed his dog was responsible for the dead snakes showing up with teeth marks all over them on his East Barron property’s lawn each morning.

But it turns out it was a pair of rampaging rabbits killing the snakes.

The 42-year-old boilermaker first made the discovery Tuesday night when he spotted the two wild rabbits attacking a king brown snake.

“The snake was raised up in the air in the striking position and the two rabbits worked their way around him and killed him in two minutes,” Mr Del Manso said.

“I’m gobsmacked, it’s absolutely incredible.

“We were watching from the veranda with a spotlight, and I thought, who is going to believe this, they’ll think I’m crazy.”

Wildlife expert Paul O’Callaghan of the Cairns Wildlife Safari said it was the first time he had heard of rabbits attacking snakes.

Here is yet another one of Ryan Higa's hilarious ads:

Sorry again for any un-PC-ness (retarded red).

The Fair Go Ad Award Results

FIVE FINALISTS FOR BEST AD:
TOYOTA - SNOWBOARDING
Snowboarding taps into Toyota’s marketing phrase that we believe anything is possible. This ad’s central point is that a young guy breaks into Snowplanet each night to practise his snowboarding to impress a girl who works there; he’s hopeless. But by ad’s end he makes it to the bottom and gets the girl.
MITRE 10 – LITTLE BOYS DIY
Kids in the playground, talking in adult-speak, about getting together at the weekend to help one of them with his DIY job. It sounds like a conversation had by many a DIY’er in pubs up and down the country and seeks to reinforce Mitre 10’s catchphrase that “DIY’s in our DNA.” It also has a poke at our Aussie neighbours.
INSTANT KIWI – MEXICAN DOUG
It seems many don’t know what product this ad promotes, but its line (in a Mexican accent)”get a perm” has entered the Kiwi vocabulary. It seems to be encouraging people to listen to the wild voice inside them, “live a little” and buy an Instant Kiwi.
2 DEGREES
This ad, and its variants, launched the new mobile phone network 2 Degrees. It stars comedian Rhys Darby from Flight of the Conchords and plays on the premise that everyone in NZ is linked, not by six degrees of separation, only by two.
CADBURY – MOVING EYEBROWS
The kids with contorting eyebrows certainly provoke reaction – it’s hilarious or intensely annoying. These ads are made in Britain and have global appeal but ultimately appear to say nothing about chocolate.

FIVE FINALISTS FOR WORST AD:
THIN LIZZY
An advertising jingle that sings as it sells make-up you brush on that covers all
TELECOM XT – RICHARD HAMMOND
The big campaign that kicked off Telecom’s new digital mobile network
CADBURY – MOVING EYEBROWS
See above
SENSODYNE – JELLY FISH
The swimmer struck down by tooth pain in the pool
TOWER INSURANCE – DISHWASHER DRAMA
The ad that shows men can load dishwashers and women can be grateful for that.

And now, the moment you've all been reading for; the winners:
Winner of the best ad:
MITRE 10 - LITTLE BOYS DIY
Winner of the worst ad:
TELECOM XT - RICHARD HAMMOND
