I know it’s only been two weeks, but it feels like forever. Here we are again with another raging good episode of everyone’s favorite legal humor podcast.
This week we discuss Why the Rabbi Crossed the Road, the fact that you Can’t Handle the Ruth, whether You’ll Get Dinged for reading Wikileaks, and how some jerkoff got nominated for the ABA Blawg 100.
This week’s puzzler (combining math and fitness to be super scary to lawyers) is a little complicated, and so you don’t have to try to figure out my drunk explanation, here it is:
You have an adjustable free weight (dumbbell). It’s basically a handle, and you put disk-shaped weights on either end to adjust it to the amount that you want. The bar/handle weighs 2.5 lbs. You have 5 disks for either side.
What is the maximum amount of weight you can put on the handle such that you can also adjust it to every 2.5 bl increment below that number?
If you think you figured it out, e-mail your answer to BlindDrunkJustice@gmail.com, and if you’re right, Namby will steal your answer and try to claim he finally figured one of these things out.
Also, there’s no trick with the fact that you put weights on both sides. You have two sets of 5 disks, the sets are identical, and you have to evenly distribute weight on either end. So, for this question, just pretend you have 5 weights and ignore this detail.
