Pardon my French, but no whole number smaller than 100 can be larger than 99, so this puzzle must be completely and utterly

The volume filled is:


46

I think that this is because

I think this could be an answer:


34

The symbols '| — S S' could be a visual representation of the word: Since:

Lateral thinking here:

The smallest sum that can be achieved is Because Reasoning

Well, seeing that this is lateral thinking:

The description of "5/8 of the way into [your] meal" could imply that you are: This particular establishment: This means that among the clientele would be: The shoe-less customer could therefore be: (Similarities with SteveV's answer perhaps but hopefully you can also see the differences and the justification...)


29

I think you are Explanation


28

It's additive therefore,


25

I think the middle number is First sequence Second sequence Third sequence


23

Following up on @Earlien answer I think the trick is to This gives Similarly


22

The racers are all: These always have: This has other quirks in consequence too: The woman's scoffing at the suggestion that one could be 9 months older than the first:

Actually it is equivalent to 113.4 (rather than 114.3) of any unit, not just metres. The decimal point is optional. 1.134, 11.34, 113.4, and 1134 are all equivalent to hell. However this is only the case when using a device with a 7-segment liquid crystal display (LCD) such as an old calculator. The technique is simple: Input the number and then rotate the ...


21

I'm not sure why you'd need ANY sort of dissection for this.

Alternatively, you are: If you 'take away two' - specifically: This would also work with matchsticks... (and a similar technique could be used to change (e.g.) 19 into 14, 29 into 24, etc...)


21

How about So,


20

I think the next element is Because

What we need to do here: More specifically: When this is done: Translating this, we get:


19

I think it is because If so Alternatively That would explain the waitress's laugh, but still not the hint.

Ok I will present a solution. For convenience, I will number the ropes in the order of their burning. STEP ONE STEP TWO STEP THREE FINAL STEP I have successfully measured 1hour 8 minutes or 68 minutes

This is However

I believe, you two are using: And the trip will be: What, why? Still, why? So? Huh? Oh! And yup, both get a window seat! :)
