For indulging mathematical/logical geekery:

Rustan Leino's puzzle page

"...some mathematical puzzles that I have enjoyed.  Most of them are of the kind that you can discuss and solve at a dinner table, usually without pen and paper."

(Your mileage may vary!!! And there are no solutions. I did surprise myself by coming up with a solution to the "alternating T-shirt colors" puzzle.)

You're forgetting the number of geeks out there who don't follow the commonly understood rules, when they're not explicit, and who bend the hell out of the rules, when they are explicit.  ^.^

... expressed in the common timekeeping unit for which the next greater unit would put your answer below 1.

My real guess was still pretty damned good.  I was thinking a little over a month.  What was your first guess?

Comment by Idaho Spud on January 27, 2014 at 3:51pm

Yes, I thought of specifying, but didn't want to give a clue.  I thought of saying "in hours, days, weeks, months, years, decades, centuries, but I would have to go on & on in order not do give a clue.

I finally decided not to specify because I knew what was meant when I heard it asked and figured most people would.
