Uncharted Waters

The Puzzler

RAY: Well, here's what he did. He used his ruler and he measured the thickness of his diary book.

TOM: Ooh.

RAY: And it happened to be an inch thick. He counted the number of sheets of paper. There were 200 of them.

TOM: Perfect.

RAY: So each one was what, 5/1000ths of an inch? Stuck three of them together, and that's why he lived to tell the story.

TOM: That's good.

RAY: Pretty cute, eh? So who's our winner?

TOM: Our winner this week is Amy Jensen from Arlington, Texas. And for having her answer selected at random from among all the correct answers that we got, Amy's going to get a $26 gift certificate to the Shameless Commerce Division at cartalk.com, with which she can get a copy of our latest CD, Tales of the Brothers Grime.

RAY: Congratulations, Amy!
