@Izzie,
Blush. I thought those smooches were for the thread (kiss of life).
At least I came back before Try. Isn't that worth something (even if it was for a burial)?

Here's a peace offering (hint: you can use it when Try comes back again). The dots are merely for positioning.

T........I.........M........E
...........ABDE

Mark:

Coefficient R

R = 18! / (5! * 1! * 12!) = 111,384

There can be no better answer!

Lzzie please forgive my inexcusable transgression and consider me admonished. In atonement please allow me to present for your delectation the following rendition…

nabcle

cch

foprrmaiotiron

For the boys:

I have been training a particle which moves left and right along the x-axis.
If its position (with respect to the origin) is given by s(t) = 3t^3 " 5t^2 + t - 2 (where t is in seconds and s(t) is in inches).

(a) How fast is the particle moving when t = 4 seconds? Where is particle at that time

Due to the shortage of time this weekend:

(b) At what time(s) is the particle at rest

(c) When is the particle moving to the left

I thought it was AB(I)DE (I missing) something or other!

I went to see a doctor. The doctor said, "Whenever you feel the urge to ejaculate, startle yourself" So I went out and bought a starter pistol. When I got home my girlfriend was naked in bed. So we started talking numbers and started at it. When I felt the urge I fired the pistol…

The next day I went back to the doctor and the doctor asked me how it went. I said, "Not to good, I did everything you said, but when I fired my gun my naked neighbor came out of the closet..."

This is amazing. You spend 4 years being entertained by the riddle master of A2K, only to find out he's your neighbor. I could have been passing my answers through the fence...

Lzzie:

Foprrmaiotiron = prior information

nabcle = Binnacle

I am somewhat you didn’t get the third; it was a cinch!

Mark:

PARTICLE

a) 105 inches/second
b) t = 1/9 and t = 1
c) 1/9 < t < 1

Just for completeness; a ii:

S(t)= 3(4)^3 " 5(4)^2 +4-2= 114
The particle is therefore 114 inches to the right of the origin.

Hey! I thought that was me!

Mark amusingly wrote about the fence; that shocked Lzzie; which reminded me of…

Sex against a fence; Mark leans over and asks my girlfriend, ‘Do you remember the first time we had sex together all those years ago? We went into the yard when Try was out, you leaned against the back fence and I made love to you.’

‘Yes’, she says, ‘I remember it well.’ ‘OK,’ he says, ‘How about taking a stroll around there again and we can do it for old time’s sake?’ ‘Oh Mark, you old devil, that sounds like a crazy, but good idea!’

Try heard their conversation and, having a chuckle to himself, he thinks to himself, I’ve got to see these two old-timers having sex against that fence. I’ll just keep an eye on them so there’s no trouble. So he follows them.

The elderly couple walks haltingly along, leaning on each other for support aided by walking sticks. Finally, they make their way to the fence. His girlfriend lifts her skirt and Mark drops his trousers. As she leans against the fence, Mark moves in. Then suddenly they erupt into the most furious sex that Try has ever seen. This goes on for about ten minutes while both are making loud noises and moaning and screaming. Finally, they both collapse, panting on the ground.

Try was truly amazed. He thinks he has learned something about life and old age that he didn’t know.

After about half an hour of lying on the ground recovering, the old couple struggle to their feet and put their clothes back on. Try thinks to himself, this is truly amazing. I’ve got to ask Mark what his secret is.

So, as Mark passes, he says to him, ’Excuse me, I have to admit that was something else. You must’ve had a fantastic sex life together. Is there some sort of secret to this?’

Shaking, with his hair standing straight Mark is barely able to reply, ‘Years ago that wasn’t a friggin electric fence’.

Holy Schmoley; I have a perfectly round doughnut with a hole in the middle.

The distance from the outer edge of the inner circle to the edges of the outer circle is 10 cm.

To put it bluntly: What is the area of the annulus

"I’ve got to see these two old-timers having sex against that fence."
Haven't you got better things to do?

I'm still recovering...

ANNULUS
Assuming that it's 10cm to each edge, the areas is 100*pi.
