You are the bus driver. At your first stop, you pick up 29 people. On your second stop, 18 of those 29 people get off, and at the same time 10 new passengers arrive. At your next stop, 3 of those 10 passengers get off, and 13 new passengers come on. On your fourth stop 4 of the remaining 10 passengers get off, 6 of those new 13 passengers get off as well, then 17 new passengers get on. What is the color of the bus driver's eyes?

affraid We don't know because they popped out of his head at the sight of the last passenger, who was wearing nothing but a smile. Very Happy

Okay, I cheated. I'm the driver; my eyes are blue.

Blue in the summer gray in the winter. They're the color of my eyes, since I'm the bus driver.

Yeah, they've softened from blue to gray as I've gotten older. The summer still brings out the blue a bit more, though.

That bus sounds confusing. I think I'll take different bus. My eye color ID may not allow me to remain on board the first one. On the other hand, if I know Shelagh is the driver, I may take the risk after making sure my insurance is in order and I cannot be sued for anything I might think or say.
