A very mean king went to a nearby village.
He wanted some more slaves to serve him at his royal palace.
He decided that if any family in the village had more than five children, he would take them.
A cobbler and his wife had ten children.
When the king came to take them, the cobbler and his wife begged and begged.
Finally the king said, "I see that you have ten pairs of shoes in a box. If you can give each of your children a pair and still leave one pair out of ten in the box, you can keep your children".
The cobbler and his wife began to smile at each other.

A research team went to a village somewhere between the jungles of Africa. Luckily for them, they reached on the day when quite an interesting custom was to be performed. The custom was performed once in a year as they confirmed and was performed in order to collect the taxes from every male of the region.

The taxes were to be paid in the form of grains. Everyone must pay pounds of grain equaling his respective age. Which means a 20 year old will have to pay 20 pounds of grains and a 30 years old will pay 30 pounds of grain and so on.

The chief who collects the tax have 7 weights and a large 2 pan scale to weigh. But there is another custom that the chief can weigh only with three of the seven weights.
