Riddles .. 4

  1. Two men play five games of checkers. Each man wins the same number of games. There are no ties. Explain this.
The two men were NOT PLAYING EACH OTHER!

  1. What goes up when the rain comes down?
An Umbrella

  1. What do people make that you can't see?

  1. If someone says to you, "I'll bet you $1 that if you give me $2, I will give you $3 in return", would this be a good bet for you to accept?
No. This is a situation where you lose even if you win. Assuming the other person is being wise, they would take your $2 and say, "I lose", and give you $1 in return. You win the bet, but you're out $1.

  1. What object has keys that open no locks, space but no room, and you can enter but not go in?
A computer keyboard.

  1. Trains travel from one town to another town all day, always on the same track, always going nonstop and at the same speed. The noon train took 80 minutes to complete the trip, but the 4 PM train took an hour and 20 minutes. Why?
80    minutes is the same as an hour and 20 minutes.

  1. Where did the other Dollar Go?
    Three men check into a hotel, the manager charges them $30 for one room with three beds which they share. The men go to their room and settle in, after a few moments the manager realizes his mistake, he over charged the three men, the room rate was only $25. He sends for the bellhop to return the $5 to the three men. On his way to the room the bellhop realizes that he can't split $5 between 3 men so he decides to give each man $1 and pocket the remaining $2 as a tip. The bellman returns the $1 to each man. In the three mens minds they each paid $9 for the room, or a total of $27, include the $2 tip the bellhop kept and that equals $29, what happened to the other dollar?
It's a trick on words that leads you to believe the answer is 30 and has you add the number 2 when you should be subtracting as follows: 3 x $9 = 27, then minus the $2 = $25 which is what they paid for the room. And if you take wh at they ultimately paid for the room ($25) and add the $3 ($1 each they received), and they add the $2 the bellhop took, you would reach the original $30 that was paid.

Riddles ... 3

  1. A murderer is condemned to death. He has to choose between three rooms. The first is full of raging fires, the second is full of assassins with loaded guns, and the third is full of lions that haven't eaten in 3 years. Which room is safest for him?
The room with the lions - if they have not eaten in 3 years, they would be dead and thus not be a danger to anyone!

  1. The Mississippi River is the dividing line between Tennessee and Arkansas. If an airplane crashed exactly in the middle of the Mississippi River there, where would the survivors is buried?
You do not bury survivors!

  1. Each morning I appear to lie at your feet, all day I will follow No matter how fast you run, yet I nearly perish in the midday sun. What am I?
Your Shadow

  1. What walks on four legs in the morning, two legs in the day and three legs in the evening?
Man (A baby crawls, a grown-up walks, an old person uses a cane.)

  1. Why is an engaged girl like a telephone?
Because they both have rings.

  1. What does Brazil produce that no other country produces?

  1. A large truck is crossing a bridge 1 mile long. The bridge can only hold 14000 lbs, which is the exact weight of the truck. The truck makes it half way across the bridge and stops. A bird lands on the truck. Does the bridge collapse?
No, it does not collapse. Because it has driven a half mile - you would subtract the gas used from the total weight of the truck.

  1. What English word has three consecutive double letters?

  1. I am strongest when you see me as round, but I am often viewed in other forms. I lift and drop the sea with my tremendous strength, and a man with a name like 'powerful bicep' was the first to tread on me. What am I?

  1. What came first, the chicken or the egg?
Dinosaurs laid eggs long before there were chickens!

Intrinsic Asthma

Intrinsic asthma, is a nonseasonal, nonallergic form of asthma, which usually first occurs later in life than allergic asthma and tends to be chronic and persistent rather than episodic. Precipitating factors include inhalation of irritating pollutants, such as dust particles, smoke, aerosols, strong cooking odors, and paint fumes and other volatile substances. Intrinsic asthma may also be triggered by exposure to cold, damp weather; sudden inhalation of cold, dry air; physical exercise; violent coughing or laughing; respiratory infections, such as the common cold; or psychologic factors, such as anxiety.

Allergic Asthma

Most people find several things trigger their asthma. Some of the most common predisposing factors for asthma are allergies to:
  • House dust mites
  • Mould spores
  • Pollen
  • Pets
  • Food or food preservative
Allergic asthma is the most common type of asthma. Inhaling specific substances called allergens (listed above) brings on the asthma symptoms associated with allergic asthma. Nearly everyone with asthma allergic or non-allergic gets worse after exercising in cold air or after inhaling any type of smoke, dust, fumes, and sometimes strong smells.
Because allergens are everywhere, it's important that people with allergic asthma understand their allergy and asthma triggers. And then learn the facts about preventing asthma symptoms. If anyone has allergic asthma, their airways are hypersensitive to the allergens to which they have become sensitized. Once these allergens get into your airways, your immune system overreacts. The muscles around your airways tighten. The airways themselves become inflamed and flooded with thick mucus.
Whether you have allergic asthma or non-allergic asthma, the symptoms of asthma is generally the same and may include any or all of the following:
  • Coughing
  • Wheezing
  • Shortness of breath
  • Rapid breathing
  • Tightening of the chest

Investment Bank

Investment Bank is a financial intermediary that performs a variety of services. This includes underwriting, acting as an intermediary between an issuer of securities and the investing public, facilitating mergers and other corporate reorganizations, and also acting as a broker for institutional clients.
Unlike commercial banks and retail banks, investment banks do not take deposits. There are two main lines of business in investment banking. Trading securities for cash or for other securities (i.e., facilitating transactions, market-making), or the promotion of securities (i.e., underwriting, research, etc.) is the "sell side", while dealing with pension funds, mutual funds, hedge funds, and the investing public (who consume the products and services of the sell-side in order to maximize their return on investment) constitutes the "buy side". Many firms have buy and sell side components.
The role of the investment bank begins with pre-underwriting counseling and continues after the distribution of securities in the form of advice.
Investment Banker is a person representing a financial institution that is in the business of raising capital for corporations and municipalities.
