Question: There is a man who works on Big Bentley and he keeps the clock running smoothly. One day the clock stops all together, he muttered to himself "It's going to take me all day to fix it!" and he grumbles while he works because he doesn't want to have to change the time, but he finishes by tea and he doesn't have to change the clock by even a minute. How?
Answer: He started at 4:00 and finished at 16:00 (tea time) which is 12 hours making it so that the clock was still correct
Question: Your father is a scientist who has invented a red pill which, if eaten with 1 blue pill which he has invented, will grant immortality. The night he invents it, he gives you 2 red and 2 blue pills just in case one of them is lost or substandard. He also warns you that an overdose will cause the opposite effect and kill you instead. You put the pills in your pocket and leave his lab for home. On the way home, you are abducted by aliens who blindfold you and throw you into a singularity. At this point, you remember the pills your father gave you. You take them out (you can move and have enough oxygen in space for a short time), but realize that you can't tell the red pill from the blue pill. Even if you take off your blindfold, you can't see anything due to your proximity to the black hole. Given the circumstances, how do you successfully eat 1 red and 1 blue pill and survive?
Answer: Eat half of each pill.
