So I was listening to my favorite talk show one day and they were discussing these weird job interview questions that were asked to some people. Getting a good laugh and curious as to what they were, I decided to look them up. They are quite odd. So I figure that I ask you guys the same questions and see how you would respond to them as if an actual interviewer were to ask you these questions. I'll even post what job these questions were asked as well. Here you go...

Question 1: If you were to get rid of one state in the United States which one would it be and why? Job: Researcher

Question 2: How many cows are in Canada? Job: Google Data evaluator

Question 3: How many quarters would you need to reach the height of the Empire State Building? Job: Jetblue Revenue Management Worker

Question 4: A penguin walks through that door right now wearing a sombrero. What does he say and why is he here? Job: Office Engineer

Question 5: What songs best describe your work ethic? Job: Dell sales consumer

Question 6: Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos walks into your office and says you can have a million dollars to launch your best entrepreneurial idea. What is it? Job: Amazon Product Development

Question 7: What do you think about when your alone in your car? Job: Gallup Analysts

Question 8: How would you rate your memory? Job: Marriott front desk associate

Question 9: Name 3 previous Nobel Prize Winners? Job: Office Management

Question 10: Can you say Peter Pepper Picked a Pickle Pepper and cross-sell a washing machine at the same time? Job: Mastercard call center

Question 11: If we came to your house for dinner what would you serve? Job: TraderJoes Crew member

Question 12: How would people communicate in a perfect world? Job: Software engineer

Question 13: How would you make a tuna fish sandwich? Job: Office Manager

Question 14: My wife and I are going on vacation. Where would you recommend? Job: Adviser

Question 15: You are a head chef at a restaurant and your team has been selected to be on Iron Chef. How do you prepare your team for the competition and how do you leverage the competition for your restaurant? Job: Business Analysts

Question 16: Estimate how many windows are in New York? Job: Consultant

Question 17: What is your favorite song? Perform for us now. Job: Manager

Question 18: Calculate the angle of two clock pointers when the time is 11:50? Job: Bank of America software developer

Question 19: Have you ever stolen a pen from work? Job: Software architect

Question 20: Pick two celebrities to be your parents? Job: Sales associate

Question 21: What kitchen utensil would you be? Job: Marketer

Question 22: If you had turned your cell phone to silent and it rang really loudly despite it being silent, what would you tell me? Job: Biomedical Engineer.

Question 23: On a scale of 1 to 10, rate me as an interviewer? Job: Kraft Foods general laborer

Question 24: If you could be anyone else, who would it be? Job: Sales Representative

Question 25: How would you direct someone else on how to cook an omelet? Job: PETCO Analysts.

A couple of rules.

Rule 1: Don't Google search these answers. This is suppose to answered in an interview setting. So of course you won't have access to a phone/computer to look up these answers.

Rule 2: Be very descriptive. Like with Rule 1 this is suppose to be in an interview setting, and most interviewers want decently lengthen answers.

Rule 3: For the question involving singing the song. You can post the lyrics to the song (but not the whole song). Also you can't Google search the lyrics to the song. Only the parts you know.

Also if this is not the correct place for this, then I give permission to move this thread to the correct location.

Let's do this!

Question 1: If you were to get rid of one state in the United States which one would it be and why? If forced to choose, I would have to go with Rhode Island. It has the smallest surface area and thus the easiest to absorb into another state.

Question 2: How many cows are in Canada? I do not know the answer to this, but I can research information provided by the Department of Agriculture if necessary.

Question 3: How many quarters would you need to reach the height of the Empire State Building? If I had to estimate, I would say at least 35,000. (alt answer: None. You only need the stairs.)

Question 4: A penguin walks through that door right now wearing a sombrero. What does he say and why is he here? He says: "I thought it was my turn for an interview." Clearly, he also wants to work for this fine organization.

Question 5: What songs best describe your work ethic? Tumthumping - it exemplifies my "never give up" determination.

Question 6: Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos walks into your office and says you can have a million dollars to launch your best entrepreneurial idea. What is it?

Question 7: What do you think about when your alone in your car?

Question 8: How would you rate your memory? I would rate it 8/10

Question 9: Name 3 previous Nobel Prize Winners? Job: Barrack Obama, Al Gore, and Jimmy Carter

Question 10: Can you say Peter Pepper Picked a Pickle Pepper and cross-sell a washing machine at the same time? Peter Pepper Picked a picker pr- no, I cannot.

Question 11: If we came to your house for dinner what would you serve? Teriyaki chicken with rice and veggies.

Question 12: How would people communicate in a perfect world? In a perfect world? Via telepathy.

Question 13: How would you make a tuna fish sandwich? I would grab a can of tuna fish, open it and empty its contents in a bowl... then add in some mayonnaise, lemon pepper seasoning, garlic, celery, and parsley... mix it all together and then spread it between two lightly toasted slices of bread.

Question 14: My wife and I are going on vacation. Where would you recommend? I would recommend Kyoto. There are some great tourist sites there and it's a bit of a change from your run-of-the mill vacation island spots.

Question 15: You are a head chef at a restaurant and your team has been selected to be on Iron Chef. How do you prepare your team for the competition and how do you leverage the competition for your restaurant? I would have the team watch episodes of the show to get a feel for what to expect and practice cooking under a variety of different themes and dishes based around specific ingredients.

Question 16: Estimate how many windows are in New York? If you mean just New York City, I will estimate approximately 16 million windows.

Question 17: What is your favorite song? Perform for us now.

Question 18: Calculate the angle of two clock pointers when the time is 11:50? To be 11:50, the hands would need to point at 11 and 10. If you divide the clock into 12 slices, you and a circle is 360 degrees, each slice becomes a 30-degree angle. Since 10 to 11 is only a single slice, that angle would be 30 degrees.

Question 19: Have you ever stolen a pen from work? No, I have never stolen anything from work before.

Question 20: Pick two celebrities to be your parents?

Question 21: What kitchen utensil would you be? I would be a spork because I'm flexible enough to perform the tasks of a fork AND a those of a spoon.

Question 22: If you had turned your cell phone to silent and it rang really loudly despite it being silent, what would you tell me? I would apologize for the disturbance, but not attempt to make any excuses.

Question 23: On a scale of 1 to 10, rate me as an interviewer? So far, I would rate you a nine. If you hire me, I might make it a ten (last sentence said in a facetious manner).

Question 24: If you could be anyone else, who would it be? I couldn't bare to be anyone other than myself.

Question 25: How would you direct someone else on how to cook an omelet? Heat a skillet on medium and crack open an egg into that skillet. Pour your desired filling (cheese, ham, etc.) onto the top of the egg and wait until the bottom begins to solidify. Take a spatula and flip half of the egg so it folds over, encasing the filling. Let the egg cook fully and remove from heat.

...okay, 25 questions is a bit much... overwhelming. I'm way past sleepy now so I left a lot blank... may come back later to fill them out

servbot128 : No offense, but this was suppose to be in a interview setting. I don't think saying things like "ass", "ignore you", and "idiotic" are something you would say in an interview setting where your trying to get a job. I get that you were trying to be funny and creative thou.

This is so much ridiculous fun.

Question 1: If you were to get rid of one state in the United States which one would it be and why? Job: Research
If I had to get rid of one state, I'd get rid of Nevada.  As shocking as that may sound, I'd get rid of the whole state simply because of Las Vegas.  I realize many people go their for fun, but it's a center for sin, debt, low morality, and law breakers.  Our country as a whole has spiraled into all those areas, and in order to prevent the decline of healthy lifestyles, we need to start cleaning up our country.  I'd start with Las Vegas.  The casinos, strip clubs, prostitution, and crime would simply have to go.  I understand that there are other cities with more crime, but people also don't flock to those places as a tourist attraction.  If I remember right, you have a much higher chance of becoming a victim of violence and/or a property crime, than any other city in the United States.

Question 2: How many cows are in Canada? Job: Google Data evaluator
Canada is a pretty large place. Are we counting cows on the loose as well?  *chuckles* Well, I've driven the Al-Can a few times, and I'd have to guess at least 2 million cows reside in Canada.  There were a lot of cows.

Question 3: How many quarters would you need to reach the height of the Empire State Building? Job: Jetblue Revenue Management Worker
Oh wow.  Can I use a calculator?  Would the quarters be stacked head to tail, or balanced on their rims?  If they were stacked head to tail, I'd reckon between 65,000 and 70,000 quarters.  I know the Eiffel Tower is 1,000 feet or so tall, making it about 12,000 inches.  And a stack of five quarters is about an inch high I believe.  That'd make about 60,000 quarters, but I know I undershot the height of the Eiffel town and a stack of quarters by quite some bit, so.... I'd adjust my guess accordingly.  

If they were stacked rim to rim, about 13,000 to 14,000 quarters.

Question 4: A penguin walks through that door right now wearing a sombrero. What does he say and why is he here? Job: Office Engineer
Well, I imagined he'd squawk and I'd give him a crazy look, but I suppose we're throwing reality out the door.  *chuckles*  I'd hope he'd be offering me a job. "Mrs. Singell," he'd say. "I love the job you did supporting your last employer.  I just got back from Mexico and it was far too hot.  I've been inspired to start business in the best air conditioned offices money can buy.  How much can I offer?"
{{Okay, so that was lame.  But office engineer?  Penguins and sombreros?  O.o  Cut me some slack!}}

Question 5: What songs best describe your work ethic? Job: Dell sales consumer
"I'm never going to give you up, never going to let you down, Never going to run around and desert you!"  Well, can we ignore the rest of the song?  Those lyrics are good enough.  I'm a very loyal employee who is dependable and does what she is asked, often going beyond what she is asked if it benefits the company.

Question 6: Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos walks into your office and says you can have a million dollars to launch your best entrepreneurial idea. What is it? Job: Amazon Product Development
Well, if I could establish any entrepreneurial idea, it'd be one based off technology, of course.  And since social media is so big right now, it'd be nice to involve that in some unique aspect.  Demand is everything, and I thin the demands for useful social media is high. Unfortunately, I don't have any ideas myself.
{{I would lose this job before even getting it. LOL}}

Question 7: What do you think about when your alone in your car? Job: Gallup Analysts
When I'm alone in my car, I tend to think about God, my family,my job, and my obligations. Most often, I'm thinking of the next task I must perform at my job, and how I can get it done most efficiently.  I think about deadlines I have coming up, and what I need to do in order to meet those deadlines. If those subjects become exhausted, I people watch at the red lights. You never know what you're going to see happening next to you.

Question 8: How would you rate your memory? Job: Marriott front desk associate
I have an -excellent- memory when it comes to things I absolutely must know or remember.  If I watch a movie, I might not remember it three months down the road, but if I have a deadline to meet, I can remember it without writing it down because I easily keep a calendar of due days stored in my head and I remind myself every morning and night of what I need to do next.  Memorizing formulas and facts was always really easy to me as well, because I'd come up with my own little patterns and such to memorize whatever I had to.

Question 9: Name 3 previous Nobel Prize Winners? Job: Office Management
Barack Obama received it, but I don't know why.
Albert Einstein received it for his contributions towards theoretical physics.
Martin Luther King received the Nobel Prize for his work towards bringing equality to all races (namely African Americans, of course).

Question 10: Can you say Peter Pepper Picked a Pickle Pepper and cross-sell a washing machine at the same time? Job: MasterCard call center

Unless I had two mouths, probably not.  If you want to know if I can multi- task and hold two conversations at the same time?  Yes, I can.  In fact, I hate focusing on JUST one task.  I often perform better at my job if I'm working on something else at the same time because I feel like I'm getting more done and being more effective.

Question 11: If we came to your house for dinner what would you serve? Job: TraderJoes Crew member
Well, since I can't cook all that well, I'd probably make a pulled pork roast in my crock pot, with a side of vegetables that marinated in the roast's juice.  I'd be sure to have a variety of drinks to offer, including a bottle of wine even though I don't really drink it myself.  For desert, I'd try and offer some sort of pie, but it would definitely have to be store bought.  I wouldn't want to embarrass myself!

Question 12: How would people communicate in a perfect world? Job: Software engineer
In a perfect world, people would communicate face to face. Although technology is an important thing and ever expanding, I think we've come to the point where we do not put enough focus on human interaction.  If we lose touch with that, we put much at stake about ourselves.  I like the convenience of phones and web cams and social media, but so much more can be seen and felt in person, when you can witness body language and feel the presence of or lack of tension.
{{Another job I'd likely never get. LOL}}

Question 13: How would you make a tuna fish sandwich? Job: Office Manager
In order to make a tuna fish sandwich, I'd first make sure I had a clean spoon and plate, a can opener, a bowl, aluminum foil, two slices of bread, a can of tuna fish, a jar of miracle whip, and some vinegar.  I'd start by opening the can of tuna, drinking the juice into the sink, and then dumping the fish into the clean bowl.  I'd then open the miracle whip and use the spoon to take out 2 heaping table spoons of miracle whip and add them to the bowl... I love my tuna to be very moist.  I'd mix the tuna ad miracle whip quite extensively before adding about two teaspoons of vinegar directly from the bottle. I do this because adding a bit of vinegar to your food makes you feel more full and helps you stay from over-eating.  I'd mix the vinegar in, then take out two slices of bread, which I'd place on the clean plate.  Using the spoon, I'd spread a generous amount of tuna onto one slice of bread, then place the other slice of bread on top of the tuna I just spread.  I'd wash the spoon and use foil to cover the leftover tuna, which I'd then put in the fridge for later.

Question 14: My wife and I are going on vacation. Where would you recommend? Job: Adviser
This question is beyond simple.  I'd suggest Alaska in a heartbeat... especially if you like the outdoors. Whether you go in the summer or in the winter, you will not be disappointed. In the summer, Alaska is the greenest place I have ever been, and wild flowers are in blossom -everywhere-.  The temperature is -perfect- for being out and about.  You can participate in many unique experiences such as fishing for salmon, camping, mountain climbing or hiking, or even observing natives partake in customary traditions.  What's more is that in the summer AND winter, the most amazing wild life can be seen everywhere and frequently, even in the city.  You will want to have a camera on you at all times.  Most of Alaska also has that 'small town' charm which makes you feel welcome and at peace.  There are always events being held everywhere.  In the summer, there are even bigger things for you to witness, such as the Iditarod, ice fishing, and ice sculpting competitions.  Have you ever walked into a small castle made of ice?  Let me tell you... the experience is incredible.  People also take pride in the unique things Alaska has to offer.  For example, at Christmas, many people throw a water hose up into their trees and turn it on so that streams of water freeze through the tree branches, and they light those ice streams up as part of their Christmas light display.  Their are fairs and markets everywhere, and the culture of the whole state is breath- taking.  An hour away at most is the cold ocean as well, if you want to explore the aquatic wildlife.  Cruises in Alaska are also AMAZING. You can ride trains, take small airplane flights, or kayak across any number of amazing landscapes.  If you have money to blow, despite the fact that it would be an expensive vacation?  You won't regret a single cent.

Question 15: You are a head chef at a restaurant and your team has been selected to be on Iron Chef. How do you prepare your team for the competition and how do you leverage the competition for your restaurant? Job: Business Analysts
Well, the first task of being successful at the competition would be to ensure our team knows what we are up against.  I'd assign them various tasks which would involve them getting to know what competitors have done in the past, and what new competitors are likely to try.  I'd also have our team do a bit of research into the history of the competition and also the culture of the area in which the competition will be held.  Once all this information is gathered, we'd sit and discuss what's in demand for the area, how we can be uniquely separated from our opponents, and how we can gain a few brownie points by adding some aspect into our meal that would commemorate past competitions.  From there, of course, it'd be all about practice and taste-testing.  I'd make sure we had a few 'back up' dishes in case something went wrong, and those back up dishes would have to go well with anything else we might cook up.

Question 16: Estimate how many windows are in New York? Job: Consultant
I've never been to New York City, but I can imagine the number would be astronomical.  One skyscraper by itself could easily have 800 windows all by itself, I'm sure.  And seeing as New York City is so large.... I'm sure there are at least 2 million windows in New York City.

Question 17: What is your favorite song? Perform for us now. Job: Manager
*blinks a few times*  Well, I don't have a -favorite-, but there are many I do like.  *clears her throat and gives an 'are you sure?' look* You might want to cover your ears.

*starts to very badly sing whatever worship song comes to her mind.... probably something like "Hallelujah"*

Question 18: Calculate the angle of two clock pointers when the time is 11:50? Job: Bank of America software developer
Okay, is this a trick question?  *chuckles* 60 degrees. I am currently a math teacher, so... that doesn't even require much thinking. If you want to know if I can do basic math, yes, I can. And then some.

Question 19: Have you ever stolen a pen from work? Job: Software architect
If I did, it was inadvertently.  I don't see the point in stealing pens... I have plenty at home, and they're cheap.  Besides that, I have a moral obligation to fulfil, and I wouldn't steal anything. Stealing a penny is every bit as immoral as stealing a car.

Question 20: Pick two celebrities to be your parents? Job: Sales associate
Do they have to be living celebrities?  If not, I'd have to go with Jimmy Stewart.  I admire the strong character he held even outside of his acting roles.  I'd have difficulty picking an actress for my mother though, because I'm not a fan of many female actresses
{{flop}}

Question 21: What kitchen utensil would you be? Job: Marketer
I would be a ladle.  Ladles are useful, are made of many different materials, and always around.  I doubt I'd find a single kitchen that lacked a ladle.  You can use them to adjust items in a skillet, dish soup out to your family, or stir foods to keep them from burning.  You can use them to strain food and to separate certain aspects of a dish from other aspects of a dish.  They come in all sorts of shapes and sizes and colors, and have so many functionalities. I have a decent set of skills myself, and I like to think that I have a fairly diverse knowledge of people.

Question 22: If you had turned your cell phone to silent and it rang really loudly despite it being silent, what would you tell me? Job: Biomedical Engineer.
I'd apologize profusely while turning pulling it out to make sure it was indeed off.  After putting an end to the noise, I'd let you know that I was fairly certain I had put it on silent, and I'd assure you that I did not mean to be rude and interrupt the interview because what you had to say to me was important.  I wouldn't make excuses and probably wouldn't even emphasize the fact that it had been turned off.. simply because I'd have no way or proving it to you and wouldn't want to seem like a liar.

Question 23: On a scale of 1 to 10, rate me as an interviewer? Job: Kraft Foods general laborer
Do I have the job?
{{I kid.  This one is hard to answer.  I'd honestly have to see how the interviewer did, and I'd be as honest as possible about it.  I think even if the person was a horrible interviewer and I rated them with a 4, I'd be doing a better thing than lying and rating them a 10.  However, I'd also tell them (nicely) why I chose the rating, while admitting that I could be wrong or they might have just had a bad day.  I would hope they'd appreciate the honesty.}}

Question 24: If you could be anyone else, who would it be? Job: Sales Representative
If I could be anyone else, I would forgo the opportunity.  I'm comfortable with who I am and I have my own purpose.  Each person does, and I'd hate to thing that my purpose was being neglected because I thought someone was better and I wanted to be in their shoes.  I'm comfortable with my set of skills, the growth I have to make, and the goals I have set.  No one can fulfil their own purpose better than themselves.
{{Biggest flop of all}}

Question 25: How would you direct someone else on how to cook an omelette? Job: PETCO Analysts.
Well, first of all, I would not touch a thing unless the house was risking being burnt down. The best way to learn something is to do it yourself, so I'd stand back and watch while I gave my instructions.  I'd tell them to make sure they had a clean skillet, bowl, whisk, measuring cup, and spatula.  They'd also need a trashcan nearby, four eggs, a quarter cup of milk in the measuring cup, and a stick of butter.  Since it is likely their first omelette, I'd stick with making a simple egg omelette. I believe in setting high standards, but an omelette is tricky in and of itself.

First, I'd tell them to crack the eggs on the edge of the bowl and let the egg yolk and whites fall into the bowl. I'd instruct them to throw the shell away immediately, and to make sure no small eggshell bits fell into the bowl.  If they did, I'd tell the person to pull them out with their fingers and also throw those away.  Once all four eggs were in the bowl, I'd tell them to add the milk.  Take the whisk and stir the egg as fast as possible, without spilling it.  I'd tell them that they might want to grip the bowl firmly with their non-writing hand, and whisk away with their writing hand. I'd tell them to watch for the egg yolks to make sure they break.  If they don't break, I'd tell the young chef to squeeze the yolk against the bowl side with the whisk until it pops.  When the mixture is creamy yellow and has no obvious strains egg white, I'd tell them to leave the bowl and attend to the skillet.  First, use the stick of butter to generously coat the whole skillet.... the walls AND the bottom.  Then, turn the stove top on medium and set the skillet over the heat.  -Slowly- poor the egg mixture into the skillet, and let it sit. Watch it.  You'll be tempted to mess with it using the spatula, but don't.  You'll see the base cook white, but the top will still be clear and viscous.  Only when it starts gelling over and turns a brighter yellow, take your spatula and raise the skillet off the burner. Tilt the skillet a little, and place your spatula at the upper end of the omelette, using the edge of the plastic to break the edge of the omelette away from the pan.  This should be done easily since the walls and bottom were buttered.  Ease the spatula under the cooked egg, separating more and more of it away from the pan, and flip a third of it over onto itself... slowly.  (It's kind of like folding a letter into thirds.  That is what we are attempting here.)  Make sure the fold will stay by applying a little pressure to the now bared and cooked side, pushing the two uncooked sides together. They should stick, and then you can tilt the skillet in the other direction and do the same thing with the opposite side of the omelette.

Once the omelette is folded in thirds, it needs to be flipped to cook all the way through.  Set the skillet down, and ease the spatula under the folded omelette.  You might have to use a finger or two when you flip it, but do your best to get most of the omelette onto the spatula, and flip it over so that the folds are now against the bottom of the pan.  Wait a few more minutes, and then take the skillet off the burner completely.  Turn the stove off and flip it again.  If it's lightly singed brown, it's done and you want to move it to a plate.  If it's still bright yellow, give it a few minute to cook.  It doesn't need to be put back on the burner, because it will cook in its own heat.



YIPES.  I typed this up in notepad, and had no idea how long it would be.  LOL  But I seriously did answer these questions exactly like I would if I was asked them during an interview.  I don't understand all the short answers below... I couldn't give such short answers in an interview.... O.o

This was seriously a lot of fun for me though. If you actually read through this all, thanks for posting this, Oldschool.

Question 1: If you were to get rid of one state in the United States which one would it be and why? I don't know if I could choose just one. In fact, I would like to see each state dissolve into its own country, because our current size is just too big for one singular government to control. I think the "United States of America" should become more like the European Union, than a singular country.

Question 2: How many cows are in Canada? More than one but fewer than ten trillion.

Question 3: How many quarters would you need to reach the height of the Empire State Building? That depends, are you stacking them heads to tails, or side to side? I would reckon there are about five quarters heads to tails compared to one side to side, but then the difficulty would be getting them to not fall over, rather than how many you would need. I think stacking them heads to tails is obviously the way to go, but you can't just put them in a single tower, it wouldn't work out very well. You need to widen the base, and taper up as it goes, sort of like a giant quarter pyramid. In any case, I don't think there are that many quarters.

Question 4: A penguin walks through that door right now wearing a sombrero. What does he say and why is he here? Clearly he says, "I'm here for the interview." And that should answer the second part of the question.

Question 5: What songs best describe your work ethic? Mystery Train (Kept a-Rollin') by Stray Cats, North American Scum by LCD Soundsystem, and... No I think that's about it.

Question 6: Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos walks into your office and says you can have a million dollars to launch your best entrepreneurial idea. What is it? "Sir, I don't want to waste your money on a half-baked idea. I will think this through and come back to you with a proper response."

Question 7: What do you think about when your alone in your car? The quickest route out of my car. I dislike driving.

Question 8: How would you rate your memory? Six out of eight Gilbert Gotfreids. That is: Weird.

Question 9: Name 3 previous Nobel Prize Winners? The only one I know is Barack Obama.

Question 10: Can you say Peter Pepper Picked a Pickle Pepper and cross-sell a washing machine at the same time? Only if I was talking to Peter Pepper himself.

Question 11: If we came to your house for dinner what would you serve? Russian meatloaf, with a generous helping of vegetables.

Question 12: How would people communicate in a perfect world? Telepathy.

Question 13: How would you make a tuna fish sandwich? Two slices of bread, some cheese, mayonnaise, a leaf of lettuce, and ham. I don't like tuna.

Question 14: My wife and I are going on vacation. Where would you recommend? Madrid.

Question 15: You are a head chef at a restaurant and your team has been selected to be on Iron Chef. How do you prepare your team for the competition and how do you leverage the competition for your restaurant? idk, my bff jill?

Question 16: Estimate how many windows are in New York? More than one.

Question 17: What is your favorite song? Perform for us now. Now if you will, gentlemen, let me put it--this song--into perspective, just you can understand where I'm coming from when I sing this. It's that the, the, the, the, the woman, she's the hunted. And me, being the predator, the hunter, I'm gonna kill her. Well, maybe not kill her, but... You know what I mean, silly guys. A little bit of hot nookie. Eh? A little... Pinch and squeel. Whatever, you know, however it goes. I mean we're animals, right? We're out of control. We're fierce. Animals. Crazy. Grr. That's what I'm saying.


...Let's do this...

It's night in the jungle and it's too close to hide
I'll be upon you on the moon-light side
Du du du du du du du du du du du du du duuuuuu-yeah!
We touch to the ground, I'm lost and I'm found, and I'm hungry like the wolves!
A smell and a sound, and I'm on the prowl

Anyway, I doubt anyone would let me get even this far.

Question 18: Calculate the angle of two clock pointers when the time is 11:50? x

Question 19: Have you ever stolen a pen from work? Well, that's hard to say. Stealing implies intent, and I've never intended to take a pen home from work. Now, there have been times when I've been using someone else' pen, and left it in my pocket, taken it home, put it in the wash, and kept it. But to outright steal a pen? Who even does that? You can get a pack of two nice pens for $5.

Question 20: Pick two celebrities to be your parents? Nathan Fillion and John Barrowman.

Question 21: What kitchen utensil would you be? I'd probably be a Slap-Chop so I could slap all my troubles away.

Question 22: If you had turned your cell phone to silent and it rang really loudly despite it being silent, what would you tell me? That would literally never happen. I don't turn my phone to silent, I turn it off.

Question 23: On a scale of 1 to 10, rate me as an interviewer? 3. You're asking a lot of questions, and learning about me, but you're not really getting any useful information.

Question 24: If you could be anyone else, who would it be? Why can't I be everyone else?

Question 25: How would you direct someone else on how to cook an omelet? RTFM. It's bad to get instructions second hand.

soxfan849 : Care to explain?

Wow people keep saying 10-30 degrees for question 18. Did you all forget the other angle? The question says

"Calculate the angle of two clock pointers when the time is 11:50?"



So while your correct that 10 to 30 degrees would be correct, 315-330 degrees would also work since that distance also counts as an angle between the pointers.

Oldschool41 :

My answer is actually not the one they'd be looking for, and it's a play-on-words based on the fact that the word quarter could refer to the currency or the value 1/4.

But how could 15 degrees be an acceptable answer for the clock question?

soxfan849 : Oh okay I get ya. I thought that was what you ment before, but I didn't want to appear like an idiot lol.

As to your question about 15 degrees being an acceptable answer here is how...

Since we know that the clock pointers are going to be on the 11 and the 10 (as the minute hand on the 10 is 50), we can assume that the angle of the degree at that point is going to be acute (less than 90 degrees).

Since we know that just by looking at the position of the clock pointers, we can rule out anything greater then at least 30 (rules out Sings answer of 60). Now since we would need a forumla to get the exact answer as to what the correct angle is. However, I believe that the forumla would involve the messuring of the clock pointers themselves. This would be tough as most clock pointers have different messurements depending on the clock you have.

So that is why anything greater then 10, but less then 30 would be close enough to a correct answer (I'm going to edit my previous post as I've made some mistakes).

Now to what I was getting at mainly on my previous post.

Since we know that a clock is circular, it is 360 degrees. Now since we know that the accute angle is somewhere between 10 and 30; then the obtuse angle will be between 350 and 330 degrees.

Now you guys might think I'm making no sense. I'll repeat the question again...

"Calculate the angle of two clock pointers when the time is 11:50?"

So while the common answer of 10 to 30 degrees would be correct, my answer of 350 and 330 degrees would also be correct. Here is how...

What we need to find: The angle of the clock pointers at 11:50

What we know:

1. That a clock is circular, so it is 360 degrees.
2. Were the clock pointers are positioned (11 and 10).

Now reading the question as a whole, it asks us to find THE ANGLE, not the acute angle. So the obtuse angle would also be correct.


Edit: But I think what the job interviewer would want to see that you can get close to the correct angle and do basic mathmatics (since the job is with Bank of America). So regardless of what the answer is kind of regardless (unless you say its >30 or <330).

The only real question is, do you say the smaller number or the bigger number.

But of course its just one question, assuming you do well on the other questions; you might get the job still.

Oldschool41 :

At 11:50, the hour hand is going to be a lot closer to the 12 than the 11. But I get where you got the bigger angle, I just don't see where you got 15 degrees from.

Singelli :

Thanks! Sometimes I drive my brother insane by misinterpreting things someone say, and I do it with signs and billboards on road trips all the time. He slaps his forehead a lot, too, but he never thinks what I've said is brilliant.

Oy, I guess I'll give my answers. I probably won't answer all the questions though.

1. I'd get rid of RI. It's a small state, and while it's not the worst state it would be the easiest to add to another.

2. How many cow's are in Canada? A whole lot! XD! Dairy farming is big, so cow's are common in many places I've been up there.

3. I love popeye's answer, but I'll give my own. Yes, this will be mathmatical. *slaps face* It would take approx. 217,707 quarters to reach the height of the empire state building. That's 1250 feet (Height of Empire State Building) divided by 0.0678 (height of quarter). That equals the previously stated amount.

4. He said that he's lost, and needs a job. Rejected! (penguins have no work ethic, they just want to swim all day)

5. I can't remember the name of the song, but it's by '116 clique'. They're a Christian group. The song's lyrics are mostly "Don't you ever give up!". I really like it, it really motivates me to work to the best of my ability despite whatever adversity I may face.

8. I'd rate my memory, on a scale of 1-10 with 10 being best, around 8. I can remember some things for many years, but other things I can forget in a second. XD!

11. I'd serve Chicken Cordon Blu, with mashed potatoes and peas, because I respect you and want this position.

12. As someone previously said, via telapathy. That's just the most convinient way I can currently think of! You don't need to carry a phone around, or a laptop, or such nonsense.

19. I've never stolen anything from work. My job is worth more than any pen. Also, I wouldn't want to steal from such a fine establishment. XD!

21. I'd be a cutting knife. I'm deadly when I'm really angry. But, I can also help with things some people can't do!

22. I'd apologize, seek forgiveness, and turn the dad-gum thing off! This interview is more important than a grocery list addition!

23. It's not my place to rate you. You are interviewing me, so the point is to learn about me. If you insist, I'd rate you an 7. You seem a little rough for an interviewer. No offense meant or, I hope, taken.

That's my answers. Enjoy! I know I didn't answer them all, but I'm sure you'll forgive me! XD!
