Hey Jordan, We got the movie today. Thanks for making it
famous with your John Handcock. Who knows what it will be
worth in a 100 years or so :) Also thanks for the blessing
with it. I see you like Josh Groban. I love him too.I have all his cds and " Don't Give Up(You are Loved)" is one of my favorite songs. Have you heard of "Il Divo ? If you haven't then do look them up. I have all there cds and they have beautiful voices.I think David has the best voice. I was looking at your site and I clicked on, your music, your cd came up. Oh my !! I ran in my room and got out my cds and there was your cd. Where did it come from? How did we get it ? Know one knew where it came from. Where did we get it from? Wait ? IBLP ? I check out crossings and there you were. So the only thing I could figure out was that ATI sent your cd with something we ordered. Craziness !! Now it is really beginning to look like a small world. Kewl cd . Caroline's brother Jonathan, writes his own music and words. He has written some nice songs and hopes to record some cds soon. Check out his site. www.xanga.com/dzetamostly. You can stream some of his music , if you like. Have a wonderful day in the Lord ! Trails of Happiness, Tangerine

hi Jordan! I'll be praying for your surgery. You should be
in good hands at UCI. No flirting with the nurses afterwards! :) I enjoyed all the pictures...esp. of you as Indy Jones fording the river! I paid $8.15 a gallon for gas last weekend in Warwickshire, England. It is about $5.80 a gallon for gas here in Geneva...not too bad! People cross the border into Switzerland just to buy the cheap gas! Anyway, I hope you are doing well.

Okay, this might be a little hard to explain, but I'll try. Since all the boxes are mislabled, it will be basically a process of elimination. If you look at a fruit from the mixed box, whatever fruit you see has to be either all apples or all oranges. So let's say that the box incorrectly labled mixed is really the oranges. So now we've figured out that the mixed box is really all oranges (doesn't really have to be, it could be all apples, the key is to stay consistent, because this isn't an actual answer, but more how you can solve this problem). So that means the only labeled boxes we have left are "oranges" and "apples". But one is really the mixed fruit, and the other is apples, since the oranges are gone. Well, the "apple" box cannot be the one that contains all apples, since we have to take into account they are mislabeled, so it has to be the mixed fruit, so that means the one labled oranges are apples. Man, that was hard to explain for some reason, though it wasn't that hard of a problem. Funny that you said you looked natural in that self-photo... I'll definitely be praying for your surgery..

I just realized that all I had to say was whatever fruit you
discover the mixed box to be, the others have to be the
opposite of each other... guess it really wasn't hard to explain.

A Dire Straits classic! Love that song. You're pretty quick, lad. Some nice layups there (and nice shorts).

You actually play a lot like Tony Parker lol. Nice tune too.
I read the problem for one minute and decided I had to see
the answer. I didn't consider that, first of all, even if you knew how to figure the problem out, you would still need some luck to pick a fruit from the falsely labeled "mixed" group to know the content of all three boxes. I also didn't consider that all three boxes were definitely labeled incorrectly. Next time, I'll be a more patient thinker lol.

Before I figured this out I thought this was harder then the
first one! If you pick one out of the apples and oranges box
you will be able to base your answer off of that as all the boxes are incorrectly labeled. That's my simplified answer. By the way, you did a great jop on your picture aid.:-) I love the film of Kalea. She is so cute! Matthew asked me to say he figured the puzzle out too (He figured it out first, but did not tell me the answer).

Ok, that is really strange, Tangerine. ATI has never destributed my CD, so how on earth could you have gotten it? This mystery must be solved. :) Anyway, Jonathan has a very good voice. Thanks for sending that link. Josef, good job. Once again you prove yourself a genius ... a demented genius, but a genius. $2.15 a gallon isn't too bad, Josh. Thanks, Lukis, for the Parker comparison! That makes me feel good! :) Actually, I do kind of have that run-and-gun type of mentality when I play, though I'm not nearly as agressive as Tony. I need more of that. If ever I'm timid I don't play nearly as well. Eye of the tiger. Do you play ball? You know what, Melanie, you could be right. This one seems to be at least as hard as the last one (Nathan also thought so too), although Josef thought it was easier, as did I (just slightly). Thank you also for being one of the few to appreciate my graphically artistic talent. ;) Now Nathan, I'm waiting to hear from you! I know you can get it, man! You're the man, man! Believe in yourself! Remember Sea World! Believe!

Hah yea man I play all the time, although not recently because of the weather. My college's gym is always occupied by the team so no luck there either. I'm a huge fan of the NBA too. Pistons all the way (actually I grew up a huge Grant Hill fan)!!!

Okay, I'm not looking at anyone's answer. And I'm probably
gonna feel silly for saying this (once I find out the real answer), but quite honestly... I'm stumped. I tried to think of something offbeat like, the label says "Fresh Fruit" or "Product of Uraguay" or something tricky but... It's not working, is it? I just hope that I don't get unfairly brain-typed as a result of my honesty here... BBL, JFly

And BTW Jordan, Yeah the music is, well, let's say a bit "dated" (off your father's iPod maybe?). But YOU ROCK on the ball court!! JFly

Okay, I figured it out now!! Hello?... Wow this place is a ghost town now. Everyone's moved on already I see, and they've *sniff* left me *sniff* all alone... Anyway, now I really feel silly! I figured out that I failed to read the instructions, and I um, didn't like read the part about the boxes being labelled incorrectly. Actually Jordan, your beautifully Illustrated "fruitquake graph" only contained only part of the riddle, and I didn't really read beyond it. Could have been that distracting background music on your blog... I was transported back to Mr. Lazarra's fifth grade class, where he gave the whole class a "test"... "Be sure to read the instructions carefully BEFORE you answer any of the questions on the test" he instructed as he handed out the test. Those who actually looked at the instructions at the top of the test read, "Do not answer any of the questions on this test. Bring this paper immediately to the teacher's desk and then return to your seat." I think there were only 2 or 3 geniuses in class that day who got to enjoy the looks of shock on the rest of their 23 classmates faces who wondered how they finished so quickly. Unfortunately, I wasn't in the minority that day either... Thanks for listening... JFly (hope my br tags worked)

You like Luc Longley, I take it? Man, I have to say, Grant Hill is one of the most classiest guys in the NBA. He likes BTs, and actually called about a year ago and I got to talk to him for about 15 minutes. He was so soft-spoken and sheepish, and I was thinking, "Man, I'm the one who should be sounding like this!" Too bad injuries have plagued him so badly. Yeah, the Pistons aren't too bad when their players are out of jail. :-D JFly ... lol! Man, you have a way of getting me to laugh out loud way too easily. Now wait, you've read it carefully, so do you have an answer? And are you dissing my blog music? No one disses my blog music. lol, I never had a teacher do that to me, but I'm sure I would have also been one of the kids sitting at my desk in awe of those few who got it done so fast.

Okay, Chosing one fruit from the apple/orange box will tell
you, using logic of course, what is in the other two boxes.
For example if you pick an apple out of the apple/orange box
you will know that since the apple/orange box=apples then,
logically speaking, the apple box=oranges orange box=apples/oranges. You may then using the wonderful logical brain that God has given you correctly label the boxes.:-) (Or you could just dump the boxes and put the correct fruit in the correct boxes, complaining the whole time about the idiot who can't tell apples from oranges) Ok Brad I've commented on your "official blog" Now the question is will you reply on your blog or my blog?

Sorry bro, this one I passed up. I can't take it, so I looked here for the answers. Strangely enough, I still don't get it! lol. Josef's answer makes the most sense, but I still don't understand how you would KNOW that the fruit you picked from the box wasn't a mix, but contained all the same fruit as the one you picked up. But oh well, this must be an "NF" type puzzle. I don't care what anyone says, this one is harder than the last one. :-) Holy cow, I can't believe you tried to cross the bridge after "The Great Truck-Stuck of 2006". You probably made sure to have it in 4x4 this time though. lol Kalea is so cute in the video. And hey stop giving away information from our top-secret L&R Productions meetings. :-D
