Dr Voge’s Equatorial enigma…

Dr Voge is travelling by ship from south of the equator to the north.

He has a nice little second class cabin which has a bathroom, but no window.


Dr Voge has no compass or any other scientific instruments.

Yet, without leaving his room or talking with anyone, Dr Voge knew exactly when the ship crossed the equator.

We all know how clever he is – but how did he know?

Answers on a postcard…


Not so much a science teaser…

More of a corny Chemistry joke befitting of other departments!

Surely something to register on the Whatcott Scale, perhaps even the Kiernanometer…

A chloride ion steals a sodium’s electron.

Sodium calls the police and reports his electron stolen.

The policeman asks “Are you sure?”

Sodium yells “Yes, I’m positive!”
