    Its a bit of topic, but just to make sure your all still thinking [:D]!

    A farmer and his hired help were carrying grain to the barn. The farmer carried one sack of grain and the hired help carried two sacks. Who carried the heavier load and why?

    Im blonde…

    but the guy carrying 2 sacks carried more…

    which meant he would have have nicer biceps…

    and he was probably the younger of the two…

    Does any one know if hes single???

    hahahahaha

    Hmmm, sounds like “how long is a peice of string”. Either could be carrying the heavier load, depending on how big each sack was.

    Otherwise the most obvious answer is the correct one.

    Well Phobia the way you say the riddle means that the farmer had the heavier load as his sack had grain in it but the helper only carried 2 sacks

    so pinky if the younger helper was only carrying 2 sacks maybe he is skinny and cannot carry one with grain in it sorry [;)]

    “The farmer carried 1 sack of GRAIN”

    “The help carried just 2 sacks!” it didnt say it had grain…

    Well Lawry I guess it has no direct relation to property investing but since the difference between an ok deal and a great deal is how creative you are when making the deal and then when you have the property I guess exercising our minds is benificial wouldn’t you agree?

    If he was,after carring those sacks,I reckon you would just about kill the poor bugger by the sounds of things Pinkster.
