I ran into an article today describing interview questions used at Google that were so bad they were banned. All of them seem to have reasonable answers (a follow on article describes them), but there was one that was just plain crazy, and no one had a good answer for it:

You are shrunk to the height of a nickel and your mass is proportionally reduced so as to maintain your original density. You are then thrown into an empty glass blender. The blades will start moving in 60 seconds. What do you do?

How would you answer that one?

I actually came up with a pretty good answer, but I don't want to spoil the fun, so I'll post it later.


You know that children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers, :phones:

Well you could set in the center of the blades, since the centripetal force is equal you should stay alive. Unless you get dizzy and falldown and die.

Or maybe this

Resolve to stop dropping acid.

The answer is pretty simple, but I'll let it brew.
