Ashcroft v. Raich Resource
The Cato Brief

Brain exercise

If, your brain, like mine, needs some exercise after yesterday's eating and drinking, you will enjoy these questions.    Two things.  First, you have to answer these questions, instantly, and in your head.  Second, I didn't write them, so the smart aleck comments below the fold are not mine.

First Question: You are participating in a race. You overtake the second person. What position are you in?

Second Question: If you overtake the last person, then you are...?

Third Question:  Very tricky math! Note: This must be done in your head only. Do NOT use paper and pencil or a calculator. Try it. Take 1000 and add 40 to it. Now add another 1000. Now add 30. Add another 1000. Now add 20. Now add another 1000. Now add 10.

Fourth Question: Mary's father has five daughters: 1. Nana, 2. Nene, 3. Nini, 4. Nono. What is the name of the fifth daughter? (a, e, i, o, u)?

Answer No. 1.  First?  No!  If you overtake the second person and you take his place, you are in second!

Answer No. 2.  If you answered that you are second to last, then you are wrong. Tell me, how can you overtake the LAST person? YOU are the last person.

Answer No. 3. Did you get 5000? The correct answer is actually 4100.

Answer No. 4.  Answer: Nunu? NO! Of course, not. Her name is Mary. Read the question again.
