In 1995 I had this one up: what is the smallest number which, when multiplied by 1.5, gives the same result as when you move the first digit to the other end? (As though 2345 x 1.5 equalled 3452 -- but it doesn't). The question was answered by Roger Frye, who got a sandwich at the Bent Street Deli for his efforts. You want the number? E-mail me.

Strictly a Taos item: How many speed bumps did there usetabe on Valverde Road in 1982? The correct answer gets you coffee and a cookie, or a latte (buy your own cookie) at the Bean. Email the answer to: ebear@zianet.com (Eric Bear Albrecht)
