Agreed. I feel like the government should forgive $60K worth of student loan debt on all those with liberal arts degrees. Cause... it just feelz right yo. Maybe put that debt load on all of the silly former students 'tarded enough to get degrees in engineering and science.

It's not. There's a miscommunication somewhere.
Link Posted: 4/20/2016 11:21:18 AM EDT


10+9=19, homey.

common core is f'n stupid.

sister teaches elementary school. she hates common core, as do most of the student's parents.

I guess its supposed to be like a proof in geometry. 10+9=7, 10+9-12=7

maybe it would be cool to apply common core the plane taking off on a treadmill problem?

I particularly enjoy it when the feelers misuse words like "invest".

Good answer, but then the problem would be (10+9)%12 = 7. Problem was not worded correctly.

The correct equation for this is:

7 / 9 = 10

These sorts of things annoy me. 10+9=19, not 7. Those chain FB posts that say stuff like below are just plain wrong.

1+4=87
45+2=35
4+5=3
38+6=?

Numbers and mathematics are set in stone. "+" cannot mean anything but "add"; it cannot ever mean "the first digit minus the second digit plus the square of the second number's boyfriend" No. It means "add". Don't act smug when you put together a math problem that is wrong and then try to tell people that you just have to look at it a certain way. It's wrong, and you're wrong for asking it. Might as well ask "I have 3 apples and ate 1, how many do I have? zero because my friend ate the other." If there's not enough info given to solve the problem, then it's a bad question.

It's a riddle.
The answer is a 12 hour clock.

add the number of letters in each number

ten = 3
nine = 4

3+4=7

This is not "Ten plus nine is seven"
This is "10:00 + 9 = 19:00 = 7:00pm"

Two entirely different things and are not interchangeable.

Depends on if the 7 is capitalized and the 10 is lower case.

OK, since we're doing riddles, a man lives on the 40th floor of a high rise apartment building, when he leaves in the morning he takes the elevator to the 1st floor, but when he gets home at night he has to take the stairs, why? (There is nothing wrong with the elevator, other people can use it just fine, and he has no mental issues, he simply CAN'T use the elevator to go back up, why?)

What can you put in a barrel that you can't see or feel and has no weight?

1)The elevator is old and can only transport weight safely down. It can only barely move it's own weight back up to the 40th floor, so he has to walk up.

2)A hole.

Answer to the first one fits the information given. Either the answer is correct or the puzzle is incomplete.
