I have many feathers to help me fly. I have a body and head, but I'm not alive. It is your strength which determines how far I go. You can hold me in your hand, but I'm never thrown. What am I ?

If you have six men and they each had six baskets. Each basket has six cats inside and each cat has six kittens. Assuming all are whole and healthy, how many legs are there?

posted on Jan, 19 2006 @ 05:44 PM
it depends...

3036 legs

OR ...

3024 legs*
*minus the 6 men's 12 legs, which were crushed by the weight of carrying 6 baskets each containing 216 cats!

Maybe/ Maybe not!?
