ooo is this a riddle? I LOVE RIDDLES!

Let's see...if you take a half of a number. then add another half of a number. you have another half of a number.

or if you take air + half of air = AIR!!!

Yay i win!

Infinity. Add anything to infinity and it's just infinity again.

I GOT IT!!!! It's five.
Take half, or the f and e, and you have iv.
IV is Roman Numerals for 5

Good one demonseed!!

sorry I had to laugh at this

the roman numeral for 5 is just 'V'

'IV' = 4

Actually, IV is equal to 4.
But I like your approach on this one.

BTW, I think you need to ask a banker..

After 10 years of paying off a 200k loan, ie:100k of payments, I still owe close to 200K..
Go figure...

it would have to be a constant; and it would have to be an element that is not deconstituted in the process of addition and equation.

So wouldn't infinity then have the same properties as 0?
=)

Can you elaborate on the radio active element explanation though?

Mary goes too Wal-mart, she see's that the television she wants is 50% off, the total cost of the TV is \$399.00 and has a mail in rebate. Mary thinks its a good deal, buy's the TV and sends in the rebate, gets her 50% refund check and the TV is yet itself a whole of the total sum!!"

reply to post by Jim Scott

I have pulled a few tails off of runaway lizards in my day.In the wild. I felt kinda bad about that afterwards.(sp)

Everyone of them (in captivity) grew back a stubbly joke of a tail.

I have yet to see a lizard eat its own tail.

To be perfectly clear, I do not want to.

radio active elements decay over time and gradually their mass decreases eventually to half
half life its called

maybe I'm not understanding the question well, but this could be alot of things

a piece of string
the lifetime of a living thing
the code of a computer program
a teardrop

etc,etc,etc...

add half again to any of these things, and they are still the original

a piece of string
the lifetime of a living thing

etc,etc...
