The ultimate answer!

The ultimate question...now that's another story.

I'd like a question for the answer, best one wins.

to get things started, and to give you a gauge of what I'm looking for...

my version of the ultimate question is "How many times do I have to ask a girl out before she'll give up and say yes?"

100k prize.


P.S. I am a late bloomer into intergalatic hitchhiking, so I tend to hose things up, and often forget my towel, so suggestions for this contest are oddly welcome.

A train leaves Chicago, traveling southward at 50 MPH. At the same time, a Cooper Mini full of Rodeo Clowns leaves Salt Lake City, traveling eastward at 65 MPH.

Accounting for a hurricane on the east coast, a tornado in the midwest, truck weigh-station stops, and Rodeo Clown bathroom breaks, how many pennies are in the cup holder of my car?

Among the millions of people connected to the Internet, we shall focus on 4 of them: Martin, Thomas, Jane and Belinda. Thomas is an exchange student who now lives in Urlsk, Russia. The person who’s currently looking at www.garden.com uses a Macintosh. Belinda is 15 years old. The person from Grepmoor, UK is exploring www.freebsd.org for the newest upgrades to his PC, which runs FreeBSD. Jane lives in Framesfort, USA. The Windows NT-user is older than the Windows 95-user. The 22-year-old searches at www.infoseek.com. The girl from Webberwocken, Netherlands is currently on chat.yahoo.com. Neither Thomas nor the 42-year old uses Windows 95. The 16-year-old lives in Grepmoor. The Mac-user has never been to Europe. How old is Jane?
