No one has given the correct answer yet. Orlok does have the building information (about the museum) correct. I will give it a few more hours to see if anyone who knows the answer responds.


Returning to that insidious vegetable corn and how it has penetrated into so much of the American diet leaving people of all ages with fat guts and big asses this is actually a pretty good independent film on the subject: King Corn

I can see that, with plenty of garlic and [crispy] bacon and very few brussels sprouts.

Is there a way of working it out, or is it just wild guesses?

I think you have to know it or make a guess. I don't think there's any logical reason behind it.

No, that would not do. I was hoping that someone here might be such a fan of Sherlock Holmes that they might actually know this. I would nave never have known the answer, in fact would never have thought of the question, if I had not encountered this article in the Smithsonian Magazine: The Mystery of 221B Baker Street. Thar museum looks really interesting, if I am ever in London and had the time I would definitely like to visit it. So anyway the answer is that the building address would be 239 Baker Street, but the local authorities have let it have the address 221B.


Well that was a bust, so the floor is open for a good quiz.

I thought it was an interesting question I used to walk past it often (when working in London, I'd arrive at Marylebone Station and walk along Baker Street if the weather was good) and never even noticed it wasn't correctly sequentially identified, so I've learnt something.

A couple of us were pretty close in the 230s.



Here's a math quickie:

A farmer has some pigs and some chickens.
He finds that together they have 70 heads and 200 legs.
How many pigs and how many chickens does he have?

chickens + pigs =70
2(chickens) +4(pigs) = 200
2(chickens) +4(70-chickens) = 200
280-2(chickens) = 200
chickens = 40
pigs = 30
