My late friend George* posed this question, and it has had me wondering for a while, so I thought I'd post it in the "Odds & Ends" section, here...

If you have 12 "odds & ends" on the table, and 11 fall off, what is left- an odd, or an end?

It's odd that you asked this, as I have to end now

I suppose it might depend on whether the eleven that fell off said table were the first eleven, or the last eleven. Then again, what's to say that the remaining integer isn't an odd end? i.e., odd because unlike the others it didn’t fall off the table, and an end because - obviously it’s what’s left!

All my ends are odd.

What if it were the first 5 and last 6? Would that make it neither an odd nor an end?

I believe that no matter how anyone analyses it, the whole story just comes to a very odd end!

AND NOW, to further obfuscate the matter, When one purchases a normal "Twix" candy bar, with one (1) left Twix, and one (1) right Twix, WHICH do you eat first? My surmise is that you ALWAYS eat the RIGHT one first, as the one which is NOT eaten first is obviously the one which is "left"!

2 four letter words. Each word has the same letters in different order. Each word is pronounced the same. Each word has a different meaning. What are the words?

In reply to a post by ng19delta AND NOW, to further obfuscate the matter, When one purchases a normal "Twix" candy bar, with one (1) left Twix, and one (1) right Twix, WHICH do you eat first? My surmise is that you ALWAYS eat the RIGHT one first, as the one which is NOT eaten first is obviously the one which is "left"!

Ok Scott, but suppose you start by eating the righthand half of the Twix, if you turn the remaining (left) half around in your hand, is it still the left half; or has it become the new right half?

What if the Australians are right after all, and they are on the upper side to the world and we in the Northern Hemisphere are on the underside - what if all of our globes are printed upside down?

Then there was the case of a twin brother who died - his surviving twin was walking along the street when he came across an old acquaintance. As the man stopped to greet him he asked: “Was it you who died, or was it your brother”?

And my longtime favorite- "WHY is a mouse when it spins?- Because the higher they go, the fewer!" WITHOUT looking it up, WHAT does this mean? (I'll post the answer tomorrow...)
