The Tag Hammer is Coming Down on You!

My answers post was too long, so I put my tag list and questions in a new post.  The first part can be found here.

The Rules
Rule #1: Put the rules on your blog
Rule #2: Every person tagged should tell 11 things about themselves, answer the 11 questions asked by the one that tagged you, tag 11 other people and ask them 11 different questions.
Rule #3: Let the people whom you tagged know you've done so.
Rule #4: Don't tag anyone who's been tagged before
Rule #5: Really do tag 11 others, don't go all "if you want to take this tag".


1.  What... is your name?

2.  What... is your quest?

3.  What... is the air-speed velocity of an unladen swallow?

4.  Why are manhole covers round?

5.  Before you stand two identical guards, guarding two identical doors.  One of the doors goes to heaven, and one of the doors leads to hell.  One of the guards always tells the truth, and one of the guards always lies.  Both guards know which door is which, and each guard is fully aware of the other.  You want to pass through the door that leads to heaven.  You may only ask one of the guards a single question.  What question do you ask?

6.  Chunky or smooth peanut butter?

7.  You have eight balls of the same size.  Seven of the balls weigh exactly the same, and one of them weighs slightly more.  How do you find which ball is the heavier one using a balance and only two weighings?

8.  Your house is on fire and you only have time to bring one item out with you.  What do you grab and why?

9.  If you cook, what's your best dish?  If not, what's your favorite food?

10.  How was your day today?

11.  A cat is placed in a sealed box with a piece of radioactive material and a vial of poison gas.  The radioactive material has exactly a 50/50 chance of decaying after 1 minute.  If the radioactive material decays, the poison gas will be released and kill the cat.  After 1.5 minutes, what is the state of the cat?

The questions I was asked were really open-ended, but did require some deep thought.  So I though I'd include some questions that still require some thought, but have a more specific answer... and just some fun ones too.

Choosing people was tough.  Not only to find interesting people, but because it seems like everyone's been tagged already!  If you really don't want to answer the questions, let me know and I'll try to find someone else.  All in good fun.

EDIT: I've you've already been tagged, or just plain don't want to do it, no big deal.  I'm not gonna look for replacement slots though, because it seems pretty much everyone has done one of these already, and with all the hassle I've stopped caring


  1. LOL you want to kill a poor cat, how rude..hahaha

  2. yayyy i escaped this tag hammer :)
    i got tagged yesterday tho so i have to do that one still hah

    1. rightly so. I'm not supposed to tag someone who has already been tagged :)

  3. dear god some of those questions of yours are insane! Can't wait to see their answers.

    1. a couple of logic teasers, and a physics thought experiment. Thought it's be nice to throw some different questions out there.

  4. Aw snap. Will take a while to answer these. Don't like the whole "chainmail" thing though.

    1. I wasn't a fan either to start. But it ended up being a fun exercise for me

  5. Dammit for once I was hoping to be tagged so I could show off my knowledge, and lack of knowledge in other areas. But I did catch Schrodinger at least.

  6. You did a good job making up these questions. You really made this cancerous game somewhat interesting. Thanks!

  7. Interesting questions. Followed your blog.


  8. Can't we call "invisible" and not be tag-able? wasn't that a tag rule?

  9. must've missed it somewhere...
    but seriously like the 6th time I've been tagged, 3rd in the last 48hrs
    and I already posted an ask me anything post on my primary blog before I was even tagged to begin with...

    hope you've got another candidate...

    1. no worries. I think just about everyone's been tagged at this point. That's the only thing that makes this so tough this late in the cycle.

  10. Whew, I didn't get tagged. I've been hit 4 times in the last week.
