Alright:

You're in a wooden bunker in a field, and you are being rushed by 1000 charging Rhinos, each with a sword wielding monkey riding atop its back (both animals with an equal *and great* desire to turn you into chum) and you have a rifle with exactly 1000 bullets. Assuming your aim is perfect, which animal would you shoot, and why?

I would shoot the monkey, because I don't think a single bullet would kill a rhino. :)

Of course, you'd still end up being flattened by the rhinos :(
Couldn't you shoot them in the feet, and take on the monkies?
C'mon, there's got to be a winning situation here.

ah, magic.. i suppose

@ XERXES - Oh, I see... :eyeraise: ;) Sorry, I just have a thing against those sort of things. :D

Ah, magic, i see. Assuming you didn't have cards at your disposal too, what would you do?

Man, this is going to bug me forever.

Holy popcorn, batman.. this is like instant messaging, only really non-efficient. :D

Yeah, some of that art was pretty decent, Xerxes.

@ XEREXES - That's relieving. ;) :D I did crazy things back then, too. ;)

Nigel, you must stay here and refresh like crazy. ;) :D

nah, i'm just editing, and every time i go back to the thread theres something else to clean up :)

I think i'm going to go to biking or something. Writing non-stop on these forums is making me feel geekish.

But by all means, keep up the suggestions.

there are 1000 bloody monkeys to beat with a gun (you're outta bullets).. how are you going to manage that? Even that astronaut bloke from farscape couldn't pull that one off ;)

First, shoot the 500 frontmost rhinos. Their monkey riders will fall off and get stomped to death from behind by the other 500 rhinos. 500 rhino w/ rider left.

Then shoot the current 250 frontmost rhinos and have their monkey riders stomped. 250 left.

Shoot the next 124 rhinos and have their riders stomped. 126 left.

Shoot the next 63 rhinos. 63 left.

Shoot the next 31 rhinos. 32 left.

Shoot the next 16. 16 left.

Shoot the next 8. 8 left.

Shoot 4. 4 left.

Shoot 2. 2 left.

Shoot 1. 1 left.

You have now used 500+250+124+63+31+16+8+4+2+1 = 999 bullets and you're facing 1 rhino with 1 monkey.

Shoot the rhino with your last bullet and beat up the monkey with the butt of your riffle.

Jubatus, i'm impressed :D
That is very nice, very thorough. Ah well, this thread'll prolly die now, so i'll come up with a new question soon.
