Riddle Me This Thirty-Six

So, the answers to last set of riddles are:

1) An item is made from lead blanks in a lathe shop. Each blank suffices for 1 item. Lead shavings accumulated for making 6 items can be melted and made into a blank. How many items can be made from 36 blanks?

From 36 blanks there are 36 items made. The lead shavings are enough to make 6 blanks. Which make 6 more items. But don’t stop here. The new shavings are good for 1 more item. Total: 43

2) Not far off shore a ship stands with a rope ladder hanging over her side. The rope has 10 rungs. The distance between each rung is 12 inches. The lowest rung touches the water. The ocean is calm. Because of the incoming tide, the surface of the water rises 4 inches per hour. How soon will the water cover the third rung from the top rung of the rope ladder?

As the water rises, so does the ship the ladder is attached to; so the water will never cover the third rung from the top.

 

1 House Point if you answered one riddle correctly, and 5 if you answered both correctly.

Mega Post

Colorful-Balloons-Celebration-Vector-Background-0924072203

Today is going to be a huge MEGA post, to make up for the ones I have missed over the past couple of weeks. First however I want to explain what has been happening. As I posted briefly; I have fractured my ankle which is very painful. I have had to take time off from work as I can barely stand for more than a few minutes, let alone walk, without being in a lot of pain. Thus, I have been taking some very strong painkillers, which make me very sleepy and leave me with very little energy. This means I have been finding it hard to write my posts here, and for that I am sorry. I hope you guys can forgive me.

Now for the real post. Firstly it will be the riddles:

So, the answers to last set of riddles are:

1) Clara Clatter was born on December 27th, yet her birthday is always in the summer

She lives in the Southern Hemisphere.

2) He has married many women but has never married. Who is he?

A priest.

 

1 House Point if you answered one riddle correctly, and 5 if you answered both correctly.

 

Your next set of riddles are:

1) An item is made from lead blanks in a lathe shop. Each blank suffices for 1 item. Lead shavings accumulated for making 6 items can be melted and made into a blank. How many items can be made from 36 blanks.

2) Not far off shore a ship stands with a rope ladder hanging over her side. The rope has 10 rungs. The distance between each rung is 12 inches. The lowest rung touches the water. The ocean is calm. Because of the incoming tide, the surface of the water rises 4 inches per hour. How soon will the water cover the third rung from the top rung of the rope ladder?

 

Good luck!

 

Next, I want to tell you about a new/second chatroom for this site. Just to be clear; the chatovod chat will still be active. I promised that it will always be here, and I promise again that it always will be.

This second chatroom is simply for more choice, as it has some features that chatovod doesn’t, such as being able to play music and post pictures (as long as they are appropriate and not of you). The link for this second chatroom is https://discord.gg/3PCxBZ3 You do have to register to use it, and everyone has the choice about if they want to use it or not. You can also download an app for your desktop, tablet, or phone to use it ‘on the go’.

I want to say thanks to Lunar Kitty for suggesting and creating this second chatroom, and to both her and Ennard for helping me figure it out. Little by little we are going to make it as comfy as possible, as it is much easier to personalise.

The third part of this MEGA post is to tell you about the MCM London Comic Con I recently went to. I volunteered for the first time this year, and I am so glad that I did. I had the best Comic Con ever!

I had signed up to do different things over the weekend, but after doing a good job on my first task in the ‘Photo Opportunity Area’ I was asked to do that for the whole weekend, as the job was very demanding and the organiser in charge wanted to keep certain people who he knew would do well. This meant that I got to meet a lot of the ‘Special Guests’ who appeared, and I made some really good friends I plan to meet up with at Comic Cons in the future.

I got to meet Professor Flitwick again, which made me very happy indeed. He is such as nice man, and offered to let several volunteers have photos with him. Mine is now framed and mounted on my bedroom wall. I also say Filch and Pius Thicknesse.

By far though, the two most popular ‘Special Guests’ over the weekend in my area were Andrew Scott (Jim Moriarty in Sherlock) with over 400 people wanting a photo, and Hayley Atwell (Marvel’s Agent Carter) with over 200 people. I also really enjoyed meeting the cast of Red Dwarf, which is one of my favourite British comedies. I would recommend it to everyone. Unfortunately we weren’t allowed to take photos in this area without permisson, so I don’t have any to show you from this area.

However, I do have some others I wanted to share with you of my favourite Cosplayers:

As you can see I saw a Dementor, but don’t worry: I had my wand ready and thought happy memories of my Pottermore friends to chase it away with my patronus. Here are also a few photos from around Comic Con that I thought were pretty cool:

Here is the t-shirt and lanyard that I got to work for the weekend, and also a butterbeer glass I got for myself. I also brought a Pokemon Card for as a gift for Izzy:

 

I hope you’ve enjoyed this post, and I’m sorry again for not posting the past couple of weeks.
