    Oh. Well, that’s not the correct answer. This is one of those annoying riddles, where you shriek “that’s not fair!” when you learn the answer.

    No, not nonsense. It’s a perfectly sensible answer but still annoying.

    Hint: it has to do with verb tenses

    How did you arrive at “4” for your answer?

    I'm guessing you have six left.
    Six left from originally eight ???

    Six is the correct answer but how you sorted it out is incorrect.

    It’s all about the tenses. So, you “have” six eggs - you broke two, you fried two and you ate two. But you still HAVE six eggs.

    As I was going to St. Ives,
    I met a man with seven wives,
    Each wife had seven sacks,
    Each sack had seven cats,
    Each cat had seven kits:
    Kits, cats, sacks, and wives,
    How many were there going to St. Ives?

    real good
    but
    close
    no cigar
    Type like a Phoenician


    ..........................................
    I have read that the Phoenicians may have had a symbol for Y which seems to only have been used at the end of a word
    so
    I was confused
    but went ahead and posted anyway

    Keep warm all members here who live in Central US. It looks like it’s going to be super cold...negative temps in some places.
