Here is a simple one for those of you who can remember vinyl phonograph records. Which is more numerous, the count of days between time changeing from standard to daylight savings or the number of grooves on one side of a 33 1/3 r.p.m. record?

My bet would be on the album.

OK too much pondering already. Is this a trick question? Figured approximately 180 days between time changes....know each song runs about 3 minutes so would be 100 turns for each song....maybe 5 songs per side........however, the grove on the album is continueous.....so actually only one groove for each side of the album. Guess I am changing my answer:)

Lacey, And....?

And.....since you asked for grooves not turns, the days between the time changes would be more numerous than the one groove on one side of the album. Whooo, am going to go outside and work some other muscles for a bit:)

Lacey, my question was worded "time changing between standard and daylight savings", it did not ask how long between standard to again standard.The answer is neither are more numerous in that they both are "1".

wow Mitch, you must have alot of time on your hands to be able to count all those grooves... ; )

Lacey, if the readers had not started to use the search engines aganist me these puzzles would have remained simple, but if they want to fight fire with brimstone; here I am : lets play. I am 69 years and 8 months old and I have enough mental ammunition.
