This is an unusual paragraph. I'm curious how quickly you can find out what is so unusual about it? It looks so plain you would think nothing was wrong with it! In fact, nothing is wrong with it! It is unusual though. Study it, and think about it, but you still may not find anything odd. But if you work at it a bit, you might find out! Try to do so without any coaching.

Correct! 8)
This is similar.

If it takes three men three days to dig three holes, how long would it take one man to dig half a hole?

Sorry, it's been awhile, but as usual. buzy buzy.

For all those thinking about the paragraph:
The letter "e", which is the most common letter in the English language, does not appear once in the paragraph.
Kinda neat, eh.

Regarding the three men,three days and three holes.
For all who diligently tried to do the math, note that there is no such thing as "half a hole".

Cheers :wink:

:sad1: By saying it took three men three days to dig three holes, you implicitly defined a "hole". Therefore half a "hole" does exist and it would take one man 1/2 day to dig it. :lol:

HeHe. You'd make a good Vulcan. :wink:

Hole: A hollowed place in something solid; a cavity or pit: :!:

Philosophically:
Although one can implicitly define "a hole", volume for instance,
I'm not sure it means that if one hole is half the size of another, then it is "half a hole".

One could dig such a hole. Smaller, yes! However, it is still just "a hole".

Mathmatically:
Three men, three days, to dig three holes.
After three days there are three men and three holes
therfore:
Each man, takes three days, to dig a hole.
Each man, 1 1/2 days, to dig "half a hole". I think. :scratch:

All in fun. of coarse. :thumbup:

There is a nine-letter word in the English language that uses only one vowel. It does not use 'y' to act as a vowel, or rely on any other kind of trickery. It's an everyday word that you have probably used quite a lot.

What is the word?
