    I put my money on Jefferson. I know the first president of the US was the man that was mainly responsible for the Declaration of Independence, and Jefferson somehow is the name that springs to my mind when I think about that.

    Nope, not Jefferson. HINT: It's not one of the other Presidents on the known list.

    John Hanson

    PS - sorry man - keep answering yours. Got to run so, daring to assume I'm right, here's my question;

    "How many floors in the Towering Inferno?"

    You are correct. John Hanson was the first. And after reading your source (I found mine on a historical trivia site), Washington should in all reality be considered the EIGHTH president of the US.

    That is correct! Amazing, I thought no one would ever be able to work it out

    It's tough finding questions that google can't answer. Anyway - fire away...

    This one should be easy: What is the nearest galaxy in the universe?
    And to add a little extra: How long would it take me to get there travelling at the speed of light?

    OK, question .

    Three men go into a restuarant and have a nice business lunch. They get the bill to discover it is exactly 30 (or $30, or whatever). Easy, they think, we'll just pay 10 each (they're stingy gits when it comes to tips).
    The waiter takes 10 from each of them and goes to ring it into the till. A manager who is observing points out that he has in fact overcharged, the meal should only have been 25.

    "Hmmm" thinks the waiter, stingy buggers didn't tip me, I think I'll just help myself to a couple of quid. He pockets 2, and returns to the gentlemens table and gives them back a pound each (totalling the overcharged 5).

    So.....

    Three men have paid 10, and had a pound back, making it 9 each. 3x9=??? - 27. Then there's the 2 in the waiters pocket....= 29...................

    Where did the other pound go?

    $27 includes the waiter's $2 tip.
    So $27 (which they actually paid)+ $3 (which they got back(30-27)) =$30
