Puzzle #3

Well, starliner came the closest to solving Puzzle #2 having figured out it had something to do with the oil floating on top of the vinegar.

Answer to Puzzle #2

Since oil floats on top of vinegar, Rita removed three drops of oil from the surface. She closed the bottle, inverted it and when the oil rose to the top, she simply loosened the lid enough to allow two drops of vinegar to fall out.

Puzzle #3

Phone directory
===============

There is a town in Texas where 5% of all the people living there have unlisted phone numbers. If you selected 100 names at random from the town's phone directory, on average, how many of these people would have unlisted phone numbers?

Puzzle #4

Congratulations to northing for solving Puzzle #3 in lightning speed. :-) Since he answered it so quickly, I have decided to put up the next puzzle now.

Solution to Puzzle #3

Zero. You will not find unlisted phone numbers in a phone directory.

Okay, it seems that the last puzzle was a little too easy, so this next puzzle will require a little more lateral thinking to solve.

Puzzle #4

Elevator riddle
===============

This guy living on the 20th floor in an apartment building got up early each morning to go to work in a downtown store. He always went into the elevator on the 20th floor and rode down to the entrance (1st floor). When he came home he always rode the elevator from the entrance and up to the 8th floor. He walked out of the elevator and walked the stairs up to his
apartment on the 20th floor.

Why didn't he take the elevator all the way up to his apartment?

Note: the riddle is deliberately vauge and does not contain all the information to solve. You can ask me yes or no questions, if you need some hints.

Hint #1: he can take the elevator all the way up to the 20th floor on rainy days.

Silly song stuck in my head

Boom boom ain't it great to be crazy
Boom boom ain't it great to be nuts like you
Silly and foolish all day long
Boom boom ain't is great to be crazy

I brush my teeth with Sana Flush
You don't even need to brush
All you do is pour it on
One two three your teeth are gone

Boom boom ain't it great to be crazy
Boom boom ain't it great to be nuts like you
Silly and foolish all day long
Boom boom ain't is great to be crazy

I like my self so much you know
I took my self to the picture show
I wrapped my arms around my waist
I got so fresh I slapped my face

Boom boom...

Going to the dentist

These are for my lil bro. Rest up lil bro! Your day is almost here!

Dentist begging the patient: Could you help me? Could you give out a few of your loudest, most painful screams? Patient: Why? Doc, it isn't all that bad this time. Dentist: There are so many people in the waiting room right now and I don't want to miss the 4 o'clock ball game.




Then there's the woman who goes to the dentist. As he leans over to begin working on her, she grabs his balls. The dentist says, "Madam, I believe you've got a hold of my privates." The woman replies, "Yes. We're going to be careful not to hurt each other, aren't we."




A dentist friend of mine had a T-shirt which said on the front: Let me put my tool in your mouth... and on the back: ...and I will fill your cavity.




A man went to the dentist to get his teeth checked. While he was sitting in the chair being examined, the dentist said to him, "Have you done oral sex lately?" The man replied, "Why yes, I did this morning actually. How could you tell? Have you found a pubic hair stuck in my tooth?" The dentist says, "No, not quite. You've got some shit on the end of your nose!"
