    One the radio at work on a sunday they do a riddle, you text or phone in and win a prize etc.
    Well todays really annoyed me (cos I could'nt work it out lol )

    I'm very tired, so after the evening news at 10:30pm I wound my clock and set the alarm for 12 noon.......(working on the assumption I fell asleep at 10:30pm) how many hours did I sleep?

    If it was a 12 hour alarm. 1.5 hours.
    If it was a 24 hour alarm 13.5 hours.

    Somehow this is too early for me.

    @Hobbes.........Yeah but why? if he went to sleep at 10:30pm and set the alarm for 12 noon?
    See I thought 1.5 hours but only because 13.5 was too obvious

    @Bob.......I know, it's a riddle, it's always too early for riddles

    That was my thinking too (although I didn't know I was Hobbes so anything goes really I guess )

    That was the correct answer, whether or not a 24 hour wind up clock is available is arguable
