--- Posted by the SuperTurtle Fan Club at 9:24 P.M. on 4-27-10 in NYC, NY ---
Our favorite superhero (SuperTurtle) did a great job as a superhero today. Here is what happened ---

- 9:14 A.M.- SuperTurtle saved 48 out of 48 people in the plane crash this morning.

- 12:38 P.M.- SuperTurtle was able to save 2945 people out of 2947 people when the giant robot attacked 59th street.

- 7:09 P.M.- SuperTurtle was able to save 548 out of 549 people when a "monster" attacked.

So, SuperTurtle did a pretty good job in NYC today. You could take the time to find out how many people he DID save today. My question for you is, however, how many people did he NOT save today?



Answer

Technically, he did not save around 6 billion people.

He did have the chance to save 4,137 people. The other 6 billion or so people in the world were not "saved" by SuperTurtle that day. They didn't need saving (except for the 3 who died today).

To find the exact answer, you would take the world's population - 4,137 people he did save.

He also didn't save the people who are already dead, yet, to be alive, or that will never exist. None of them were saved by SuperTurtle.
Sorry, but your answer is far off.

Actually, there were probably quite a few of the 6 billion who also NEEDED saving, but SuperTurtle was confining his efforts to the New York area I suppose even the Super have their limitations, eh? Cute concept.

how do we know that all of those 6 billion people needed saving? was every single other person in the world in a life or death situation?

I said 3, because those were the people who weren't saved.

Easy!

But i didn't get the exact number, because it's constantly changing... but i got the idea.

I thought it was 3, 496 because that was the number of people SuperTurle was ABLE to save.

I figured it'd be 0. He might've saved or missed some that day, but "today" isn't 4-27-10.

iforgotbraingle, you're an idoit if you think that those are people. You're only a person if you are alive and breathing. Don't feel bad just because you didn't get the answer. Good teaser! Plus I got it right!
