About the Liebster Award:
this award is meant as an instrument to encourage and mentor new bloggers. From The Global Aussie: “The earliest case of the award goes as far back as 2011. Liebster in German means sweetest, kindest, nicest, dearest, beloved, lovely, pleasant, valued, cute, endearing, and welcome.” The award initially focused on bloggers with less than 2000 followers, but as its popularity burgeoned, this number has gone down to 200.
(But the 200 thing is more of a guideline, apparently.)
My 11 questions:
There are seven crows on a tree. You shoot one. How many are left?
None. Shoot one, they all fly away.
How many times can you subtract 6 from 30?
Once – once you take 6 from 30, it’s not 30 anymore.
I am in everything, but not in anything. What am I?
The letter E.
When is it bad luck to be followed by a big black cat?
When you’re a mouse.
Who was the fastest runner in the whole world?
Adam – he was the first in the human race.
Betty rode into town on Friday, and rode out again two days later, on Friday. How?
Friday was the name of the horse.
What word is always spelled incorrectly?
What occurs once in a minute, twice in a moment, and never in a thousand years?
The letter M.
I am the beginning of the end, the end of every place. I am the beginning of eternity, the end of time and space. What am I?
The letter E. Again.
You are on an island in the middle of a lake. The lake is in a remote part of the country and there has never been a bridge connecting the island to the mainland. Every day a tractor and wagon gives hay rides around the island. Puzzled as to how the tractor had gotten onto the island, you ask around and find out that the tractor was not transported to the island by boat or by air. Nor was it built on the island. Explain how the tractor got there?
It drove across in winter when the lake was frozen.
What six letter word when you take away one letter leaves twelve?
Dozens, when the S is taken away, becomes dozen (twelve).
