A Brainteaser

السلام عليكم :-)

How about a nice puzzle to work up those gray brain cells? See if you can solve this one:

Jake has been an engineer for 8 years, Pam has been a midwife for 6 years, Dominic has been a chef for 14 years and Bernadette has been an entertainer for 20 years. Is Nathaniel a doctor or a lawyer and how many years has he been in his profession?

Best of luck :)

    I'm pretty sure he spent 18 yrs, but i'll take a wild guess that he\s a lawyer.

    He's a LAWYER
    he's been in his profession for 18 years

    his profession starts with the last character of the name (NathanieL) and the # of years is twice the # of the letters in the name

    9a7 ?????????????

    Hehe.. ma 3alaih 7abeebti. I know the feeling. After I stared at this puzzle for so long, the second I knew the answer, I've txted my friend around 1:30 am to tell her. lol. La o ma 9adegatni, she was like: la mo meqtan3a.. send it in an e-mail lol

    OK, now el sa7b inshallah after Fuzzy comes back from sharm el shaikh with his dolphine-frindly can o' tuna lol

    I liked the puzzle :P

    Agool Witty, a better way to control the comments 3ashan maybaynoon il ajweba, you can moderate comments by not allowing to publish any comment until the length of the puzzle is over, and then you can publish them all and let people see their answers.

    So next time, ta3abethai bil settings before posting a puzzle post :P

    have a wonderful day.. :)

    yobah adree puzzles are meant to be solved, but was meaning to do that after some time :P

    o ba3dain aby ashoof hal pic :s Stingrays are passive by nature so they won't really attack unless threatened.

    إن شاء الله :) شنو تحب عيل؟

    LOL el semoo7a 6al 3omrik :|

    Ashwa someone else liked it :)
    Thanks for your suggestion, that's a good idea :) But it's just for fun, till fuzzy comes back and takes over :) Next time I'll just ask you guys NOT to explain it :P
