Use Your Brain

Expand Your Mind

Lots of answers to this last one, and most of them danced around the answer, but very few got it on the nose: Neon's new lenses were contacts, and Shady didn't realize he was wearing them, and foolishly put the prescription sunglasses on him. Neon would not have worn both, thus making his death suspicious.

OK, enough murder for now, let's do a little physics figurin':
Two identical tanks full of water are being drained at the same time. One of the tanks has one 2-centimetre circular drain outlet, and the other has two 1-centimetre drain outlets. Will one of the tanks empty faster than the other? Explain.

ADDED: I'll clarify: the tanks are open on top, so no worries about air flow. Assume the tanks are fixed in place, so dumping them is not an option, and there is no shifting of contents. The water is at a uniform 70 degrees, at sea level. Geez, you guys are picky. ;)

I'm shocked. Really...but I mostly just want to jump for joy. I've just managed to make progress with a corporate suit. Yep, you heard me, I managed to make him understand why he has to do certain things for me, and why it's in his best interests, and he understood and agreed. Truly, a Red Letter Day. Made me so happy, I offered to ignore it this time and go ahead and deal with the situation myself, so as not to annoy the client...and he actually openly and without provocation admitted that he owes me one.

Keep in mind, I'm working with people that have no clue what it is I really do or how I do it...and who are connected to AOL. So, yeah, you see what an accomplishment this is.

Booyah!
