Mum's secret

How old are you, Mum?
I'm 35
But you've been 35 for years
Yes, but this time it's true. I'm just ignoring the weekends.
How old is Mum?

Should be 49 (35 divided by 5, times 7) :)

49 was correct !! heres a logic one for you to have a go at :)

Question

You are standing in front of a room with one lightbulb inside of it. You cannot see if it is on or off. Outside the room there are 3 switches in the off positions. You may turn the switches any way you want to. You stop turning the switches, enter the room and know which switch controls the lightbulb. How?

Never heard this before so this is could be wrong;

Turn two switches on. Wait for the bulb to heat up then turn one of the switches back to off. Go in the room. If the light is on you know which switch. If the light is off but the bulb is hot you know which switch. If the light is off and the bulb is cold you know which switch. :D

I guess that's probably the right answer, Pooh. :wink: Can I post one? It could be that you know this one already, but it's one I like pretty much. :D

So there's this guy, he lives in a flat on the tenth floor. Every day he goes off to work, and when he does so, he takes the elevator. But when he gets home from work in the evening, he only takes the elevator to the sixth floor, and then he walks up the stairs until he gets to his appartement. Why?
