A guy got a new job which he commutes 20 miles, round trip. However he has to travel 5 miles to the job and 15 mile to get home. He's driving the shortest route possible. One day last week he had to fill in at another location. That day he had to drive 15 miles to the job and 5 miles home.
Why???
There is surely more than one reason for this but only one really good one. Before anyone blurts out ONE WAY streets realize that he is driving 10 miles longer.

He lives near the on ramp of a divided highway that has no off ramp near his house coming from the opposite direction, so he's forced to pass his house to the next exit or take back roads home. When he filled in at another location it was upstream from him and took back roads up and the highway back. I'm not sure I know why you think oneway streets isn't a working solution because it is perfectly logical.

Another answer is he lives on a peninsula and catches the furry to work across a bay. If the ferry stops running before he gets done work, he's forced to drive around the panhandle. Either solution works out.

Your first answer was the right one. He works at a service plaza on a limited access toll road. The Plaza is 5 miles from home however when he leaves he needs to travel 5 miles to the next exit make a u-turn. He was asked to work at the plaza directly accross from his normal location which made him travel 15 to then 5 miles home.


One way streets could also be an answer but how often have you had to go 10 miles out of your way because you where on a one way street. I'm not saying it's impossible but I am saying it would be very unlikely. Besides a limited access divided toll road is somewhat a one way, right?

Funny, I thought my 2nd solution was actually the one you're looking for since it's not as common but completely plausible. C'mon, who thought of a ferry?!!!

I just used the other one to prove a oneway street was possible in the real world.

New trivia question

First let me say that I do not know the answer to this one so there's no saying OK I give up tell me.

There are 3 Auto Models that have plural nouns. What are they???

wrong examples: Firebirds or Crown Victorias

hint one is no longer produced, another has been around for about 20 years and still in production, the third is still in production which started in 2000.



I came up with Le Mans and Prius and I would not bet a dime that either answer is correct Le Mans is french plural and may not count and what the heck is a Priu.

I don't know??? You know the French they'll add an S to anything, it does not necessarily denote plural. What would the singular of Marquis be? We will have to wait until next Saturday 10:30 am for the next Car Talk program to find out for sure.

Can you clearify the question? Do you mean to say the singular name of the car is the same as the plural, OR the car has a completely different plural name, not just an S tacked on... Like Mouse and Mice, Goose and Geese?

I'm giving it to you the same way I heard it. "What 3 car models used a plural noun as their name?"

The plural would simply be Sedan DeVilles or Ram Chargers and that's not what they're called.

OK Don, it sounds like they mean the model was actually named in the plural. I still can't think of one.

I can't come up with one either. I figure the discontinued model might be an obscure antique and I'd never get it. But the other 2 are recent. However they did not specify whether it was a foreign car. If that's the case who knows. Usually they don't use trick questions, but a foriegn car would be certainly tricky.

OK here's they answer. Maxima, Integra and Spectra. I gotta say that if I'd have know the answer ahead of time I would not have posted the question. Even though I know the answer I don't see these words as plural nouns. But I suppose they are!!!
