    I guess you all will remember this puzzle from your school days .

    A man has to get a fox, a chicken, and a sack of corn across a river.

    He has a rowboat, and it can only carry him and one other thing.

    man rowboat

    If the fox and the chicken are left together, the fox will eat the chicken.

    If the chicken and the corn are left together, the chicken will eat the corn.

    How does the man do it?

    If the chicken and the corn are left together, the chicken will eat the corn.

    How does the man do it?

     

    The man and the chicken cross the river, (the fox and corn are safe together), he leaves the chicken on the other side and goes back across.

    The man then takes the fox across the river, and since he can't leave the fox and chicken together, he brings the chicken back.

    Again, since the chicken and corn can't be left together, he leaves the chicken and he takes the corn across and leaves it with the fox.

    He then returns to pick up the chicken and heads across the river one last time.

    But I cheated, I know how to use the search function on the internet.  Also how to copy and paste.

    Well anyway . There was a trivia question each week . That you weren't supposed to Google . I guess it was okay to get the answers anywhere else . Lol .

      The reason I brought that up is I found some fun word games and puzzles . But I realized that they could easily be Googled for an immediate answer . Take that however you will .

      I am going to try them anyway . For fun . And whatever else that comes across my path .

    Thought at first that it might be Big Ben, but I'm going to guess an hourglass.   (Like sands through the hourglass so are the days of our lives.)

    (BTW... PIECE vs. PEICE)
