8. By the way, this reminds me of a bit I read some time ago on "outside the box" thinking. There is a test question that says:

You are given a barometer. How do you determine the height of a certain building?

The expected answer would be to measure the air pressure on the ground and at the top of the building and calculate from there, but there are some other answers:

Use the barometer as a weight on the end of a strong, non-stretching line. From the roof, lower the barometer to the ground. Mark the length of the line, and measure it.

Drop the barometer from the roof. Determine the time it takes to hit the ground. Given the time and acceleration, calculate the height of the building.

Find a building official and say "I'll give you this nice barometer if you tell me how tall the building is."

First you knock on his door with the barometer. :P

On top of that, you can get it's height in barometers, by placing it on the wall, making a mark, moving it up, etc.

You can also do something with a pendulum, but I can't remember quite what it was.

This would be from a thread I'm participating in at another forum, the basic premise is the person gives you a word, only instead of being in letters, it's in numbers (in this case 96566), they then give you a clue ("Think animal carnival"), and you have to decode what the number is. The catch is, the numbers are numbers from a phone, so 2 can only represent abc etc. So, I guessed that the first two letters were probably WO, and tried all permutations from there, unfortunately they all seem to be nonsense. (No helping me now, I will figure this out!), of course, this approach fails if I allow more then three, there are a total of 324 combinations, and I am not going to list them all :P

These ones burn EXTREMELY quickly, thrusting for 1/2 second or less, but during the burn produce between 700 and 2500 newtons of thrust.

Good thing to remember is that once you're cut/copied something, all applications on the machine can read that, so cut'n'paste of passwords can be a security risk if you don't control everything on the machine.

Well, Google and Dictionary.com agree that that translates as:

If that is git only stucco and Slotermeyer? Yes! Celebration dog that or the Flipperwaldt gersput!

I've always heard that jokes lose something in translation :P
