Coffee Riddle

Pay Attention!! :

Take one full cup of black coffee and drink 1/6 of it. Replace what you drank with steamed milk. Now, drink 1/3 of the coffee-milk mixture. Again, replace what you drank with more steamed milk. Now, drink 1/2 of what is in the mug. Once again, replace what you drank with milk. Now drink the entire mug of mixed coffee-milk.

Did you drink more milk or more coffee?
How much of each have you had?

I'm lactose intolerant, should I be doing this?

I think I drank the same amount of each, as I have to go to the little boys room already.

First, starting with a full cup of coffe, adding no coffee, ending with empty cup means you drank 1 cup coffee. Second, adding 1/6 cup milk plus 1/3 cup milk plus 1/2 cup milk means you've added 1/6 + 2/6 + 3/6 = 1 cup milk. Others got the answer, this is the easy way to it.

Was it whole milk, 2% or skim?
I would argue that you really didn't have
a whole cup of milk if it was skim.

I know I had on full cup of coffee
milk, i would replace that with cognac
and certainly not in the same cup
but in this case I think I had a little more then 2/3 milk

Of course more milk, but don\'t ask me how I know this...

Never argue with an idiot. He brings you down to his level then beats you with experience

Hell, I didn\'t read the previous comments! Can I change my answer?
