2)Can actually make people get wrong answers that they would normally get correct on paper because of that strict vs logic entering of an equation.
Like I mentioned above, the answer should just be 42 since it's the answer to the meaning of life, the universe, and everything.
42 pieces of pie
oh.. and I always say 6.
6 is the best and safest answer to any question..i.e how many boyfriends did you have before me? 6
If your wife or GF asks you if you think that girl is pretty..you say I'd say she is a 6..
and so on
ok ok..I'll stop...
