Aren't Christmas and New Years on different days EVERY year? One is Dec 25, the other is Jan 1. What am I missing?

Weekday, not calendar day. What was the last year in which Christmas and New Years came on different week days?

Ok - if that wasn't the trick - I'll say 2015 because Jan 1, 2015 was a Thursday and Dec 25, 2015 will be a Friday. That's the last year they came on different days 😃

(And it will be 2016 next time, then 2017, etc... &#128516


Yes??

The trick is you're making us think of the Jan 1 AFTER Christmas but if we think of the Jan 1 BEFORE Christmas, every year is the last year they aren't on the same weekday.

If I'm wrong on this - I give up! 😃

Which is better, a bottle in front if me, or a frontal lobotomy?

You're the sharp one
Most people will think of the current 2 week period instead of New Year's day from the current year.

I'm going to have to come up with some tougher ones, just for you

A full bottle in front of me is much better than a full frontal lobotomy. However, I've only had the former but accused of having the latter.

Oval one mile track. In order to qualify for the race, the driver must complete two consecutive laps at an average of 60 mph. He drives the first lap at 30 mph. How fast must he drive the second lap to average 60 mph for the two laps.

He's already used up all of his time if he went only 30 mph in the first lap. He needs to cover 2 miles in 2 minutes. He took 2 minutes for the first mile so he didn't qualify

Correct. He can not make it. You would be amazed at how many people insist that 90mph will get it done and will not accept the real answer.
