I was switching back and forth minutes to hours and fat fingered an error into the calculation.

Since it was a multiple of 15 I did not question it last night.

This morning I pulled up some of the PMs that included their calculations and I realized 90 was the correct answer. I had my scribble sheet next to the computer I used last night and found my mistake in an hour to minute conversion that made it back into the final equation.

Ok, here is one of my favorites:

You are inside a perfectly squared room where each wall, the ceiling and even the floor are mirrors. There is nothing else in the room. How many reflections can you see if you're facing one direction. You are able to look straight ahead, up, down, left and right.

I would think there would be an infinite number of reflections regardless of where you turned your head.

You would think that, but the answer is not infinity. I wish I had something cool to award like you did for this...... for whomever get's it correct.
