A man is walking down a road with a basket of eggs.
As he is walking he meets someone who buys one-half
of his eggs plus one-half of an egg. He walks a
little further and meets another person who buys
one-half of his eggs plus one-half of an egg. After
proceeding further he meets another person who buys
one-half of his eggs plus one half an egg. At this
point he has sold all of his eggs, and he never
broke an egg. How many eggs did the man have to
start with?

I dunno - not very good at this brain stuff. I would have bought all of the eggs and fixed a big omelet with red peppers, onions and garlic sauteed in olive oil. Add a bit of worchestershire sauce and some colby and everyone eats. Then we can drink beer and debate the answer... :)

Well thanks a lot, Ed....as I was reading this, my brain jumped out and ran away, yelping like a whipped dog. Now I gotta go out and find it, dang it!

Hey, if my brain should return before I get back from looking for it, tell it to "sit" and "wait," OK? :wink:

Walt, I like the way you think. Eat first and think about it later! That's always worked for me.

Richard, that's the same way my wife makes me feel. :wink:

No bites?

I won't get the "official" answer until tomorrow when I receive a certain newsletter but if I'm not mistaken 7 seems to meet the requirements.

Ed :twisted:
