I had the least cool points of the winning trio, but since it's been over a day I'll go ahead with 10 riddles for the next quiz.

As usual, please don't look up answers...

1) How can a woman in New Jersey, USA legally marry 3 men in the same day (no divorces, no legal separations, no annulments, no deaths, etc).

2) Why do cows wear bells?

3) Jenn is facetious; she is abstemious, she tends to get pneumoia quite easily. Based on these hints, what is her favorite tree found on US soil?

4) 9 team members congratulated each other after a win. Each player shook hands with every other player just once. How many total times did the players shake hands?

5) Before Mt. Everest was discovered, what was the world's tallest mountain (measuring only above sea level)?

6) What is the largest possible number you can write using only 2 numerical digits one time each?

7) What is the 'snappiest' snake?

8) Take your total fingers (thumbs included) times your total toes, divided by one half, then added to the number of months in a year. What is the total?

9) A car travels at 30 mph over a certain distance, then returns that same distance at 20 mph. What is the average speed for the total trip?

10) You have just one match on a bitterly cold day. You enter a room that has a lamp, a kerosene heater and a wood-burning stove. Which should you light first?

Some answers are serious, some not so serious, so creativity will be honored.

Oops, I should have written some questions, but instead for now I'll watch my brain trying to crawl out of my ears figuring out Last Train's...

5) Mt. Everest :)
6) If you could do HTML on the board, I'd put 8 to the power 9.
7) A garter snake. Terrible :(
8) You make the assumption that I have the normal number of fingers etc. As I am Anne Boleyn, the answer is 72.
9) 24mph. My brain hurts.
10) The match.
