I've challenged Lewis to put the bananas in the bowls so each bowl contains an odd number of bananas. See if you can solve Lewis's dilemma.' One answer: put 5 bananas in the first bowl, 3 bananas in the second, and 4 bananas in the third bowl. Then put the second bowl in the third bowl, so that the third bowl has 7 bananas total.Nancy: 'Word problems are never about anything useful. I don't need to derive when a train's arriving; I can look it up. I don't need to solve a puzzle to guess a friend's age; I can ask them. If the questions were relevant to my life then I'd pay attention --- ' Sluggo: 'Nancy, can I have five of your 32 apples and oranges?' (She's beside a small tower of fruits.) Nancy: 'No, I need at least 15 of each type of fruit to make a pile high enough to hide that I'm napping.'Lois: 'I see you have a new arithmetic book. Chip: 'Yeah. They revised it so it'd have more meaning for the students of today's world.' Book: 'If the US gave Iran $250 million, Pakistan $600 million, and Italy $1 billion, how much would this increase the national debt of $305 billion?' Chip: 'I'd rather add oranges.'Exploiting my A-to-Z Archives: Normal Numbers

We detect evidence of alien life: a signal from a distant solar system. It starts out simple, numbers, counting. Then it gets to more advanced mathematics. Then: instructions for decoding images about to be transmitted. In months we go from hoping we're not alone to about to find out what they look like!' Dromiceiomimus: 'What do they look like?' T-Rex: 'WHO KNOWS? We're at the frontier of imagination here!' Utahraptor: 'Maybe they look like puppies?' T-Rex: 'Please! No way aliens look like puppies!' Utahraptor: 'For generations we wondered if we're alone. Today we know: no. Life is out there, and it's puppies. Our universe is teeming with puppies.' T-Rex: 'Fine, I accept this version of events.
