Tanga Times - September 7th, 2007 by V
Welcome to your weekly installment of Vâs Riddle Corner. Each Friday evening Iâll provide you with a few riddles to earn you some Tanga Points, and perhaps even a few links to waste some time. The links will tend to be to interesting facts or fun videos, while the puzzles will frequently be based in logic or maths (gasp!). So, without further adieuâ¦
Wastes of Time:
Riddle 1: A steel sphere with a radius of 1 meter is placed into a cubical box measuring 3 meters to a side. Mercury is then poured into the box until it completely covers the sphere. If the density of mercury is 13.6 grams per cubic centimeter, what mass of mercury must be poured into the box to completely cover the sphere? FTP10
Riddle 2: I am a fire.
Change one letter and I am a knife.
Change another letter and I am a clearing.
Change another letter and I am a rank.
Change one final letter and I am a fruit.
What was I and what did I become?
List each step. FTP10
Thatâs all for today, folks. See you next week!
