Colour? You spelled it correctly! Where are you based HIMS? I seem to remember Canada, so do Canadians use English spelling?

Yes, I'm in Canada and yes we use the Queen's English. I went to a very proper gathering at Government House to meet our Lieutenant Governor. The LG "is the viceregal representative in a provincial jurisdiction of the Canadian monarch and head of state." The Queen you know.

Not that she ever meddles in our affairs, but if she wanted to and I'd like to think that she'd give our Prime Ministers a spanking every now and then to put them in line.

No guesses for favourite colour? It's blue.

Someone else please take the quiz along it's rightful path this time.

An easy riddle:

What does man love more than life
Fear more than death or mortal strife
What the poor have, the rich require,
and what contented men desire,
What the miser spends and the spendthrift saves
And all men carry to their graves?

Move two matchsticks to make three equilateral triangles. The matchsticks may not cross over each other.

I can ADD two matchsticks to make three triangles, but just can't for the life of me see how you can get three equilateral triangles out of six matchsticks, however many you move.

Is it allowed to "accidentally" break the two sticks while moving them?

Okay, I got no drawing options here, but if you take the top left matchstick you can rotate it about ninety degrees and slide it down and right to touch the other triangle about halfway up. Do a similar move with the top right matchstick and you will have a big equilateral triangle (the one on the bottom to start) and two quarter-size equilateral triangles. Plus a couple of great pointy ears.

This approximates what I am talking about.

Yes, that's the way to do it. You don't actually even need to rotate. Just move the right one to the left and the left one to the right. Over to you!

How many of Canada's six largest lakes are not part of the Great Lakes?
