And ya gotta admit--that's a good one especially if the goal is to shoot the little tike through the windshield at 60 mph.

That's a child seat? I thought it was a 4th trimester abortion device.

I remember reading this one when it came out.

I know how that trick works, but it requires an unusually good memory.

Play against an even number of chess champs and be "white" with half of them.

Mentally group them in pairs and play them against each others.

After all, being a little kid who beats half the chess champions is pretty impressive.
