Lovelorn Snail (Posted on 2003-11-27) Difficulty: 2 of 5
On Valentine's Day in 1996, there was a snail (his name is Herb) at the bottom of an empty well that is 30 feet tall. The well had run dry, but it had slippery, moss covered walls. So, during the day (he woke up at 6am), Herb was able to climb 3 feet up, but while he slept at night (he went to sleep at 10pm), he slipped back down 2 feet.

On what date did Herb get out of the well?

It's a time for celebration! You didn't manage to slip some problem in here hoping that nobody will notice! *gasp*

This is probably due to something I saw (or rather didn't see) in your user profile

No pending problems? Wow, that leaves you lots of room to talk.

Also I noticed a few other things:

Novice means you don't know the site very well. In other words, you are ignorant enough not to know that we also include old problems like this if they aren't already on the site.

13 comments, most of them in a rather negative tone.

Also 1 rating averaging 1. So the one problem you did see, you hated.

Finally, I get to slip in a problem too. Based on these three statistics, what logical conclusion can you draw?
