 Source: (Removed from apuzzlezone.com/adailypuzzle)

 Sheila, buying favors for a party she was giving, was
 having difficulty deciding on how many more favors to buy.
 She started out by planning to give everyone three favors,
 but when she divided the favors she had by 3, she had one
 left over; when she divided by 4, she had two left over;
 by 5, she had three left over; and by 6, she had four left
 over.  Since she was going to have ten guests, this would
 not work.  She counted the favors and realized that, by
 adding two more, she could divide the favors evenly.  What
 is the smallest number of favors she could already have
 bought to meet those specifications?

 Source: (Removed from apuzzlezone.com/adailypuzzle)

 Given that there are more people living in Dublin than there are
 hairs on the head of any Dubliner, and that no Dubliner is totally
 bald, does it necessarily follow that there must be at least two
 Dubliners with exactly the same number of hairs?

 Here is a variant of the same problem: on the island of Alopecia,
 the following facts are true:
    1. No two islanders have exactly the same number of hairs.
    2. No islander has precisely 450 hairs.
    3. There are more islanders than there are hairs
      on the head of any one islander.
 What is the largest possible number of islanders on Alopecia?
