    Teasers

    Brain Teasers...what DID you think??



    Study the five brain teasers, then, see if you can answer without looking at the answers; very interesting!!!!!

    1. A murderer is condemned to death. He has to choose between three rooms. The first is full of raging fires, the second is full of assassins with loaded guns, and the third is full of lions that haven't eaten in 3 years. Which room is safest for him?

    2. A woman shoots her husband. Then she holds him under water for over 5 minutes. Finally, she hangs him. But 5 minutes later they both go out together and enjoy a wonderful dinner together. How can this be?

    3. What is black when you buy it, red when you use it, and gray when you throw it away?

    4. Can you name three consecutive days without using the words Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, or Sunday?

    5. This is an unusual paragraph. I'm curious how quickly you can find out what is so unusual about it. It looks so plain you would think nothing was wrong with it. In fact, nothing is wrong with it! It is unusual though. Study it, and think about it, but you still may not find anything odd. But if you work at it a bit, you might find out. Try to do so without any coaching!

    OOOOOO did I mention, that I will post the answers later?

    #1 The room with the lions. If they haven't been fed in 3 years, they've starved to death by now.

    Some take delight in the carriages a rollin'
    and some take delight in the hurley and the bowlin',
    I take delight in the juice of the barley,
    and courtin' pretty fair maids in the morning bright and early...

    #5 The letter "e" is not used in the paragraph.

    # 1 Lions would be dead.

    # 2 She took his picture and developed the film.

    # 3 I have some ideas, but I want to say matches and I dont quite think thats right.

    # 4 Yesterday, Today and Tommorrow

    # 5 Sneaky Sneaky Dapples. You should know not to try to print a paragraph without any "E" in it.

    2. She took a picture of him, developed in a dark room, then hung it on the wall?

    #3 is charcoal, and I had the same answer as Army Grunt for #4.

    The Lions. They have starved to death.

    The woman was photographing her husband. Although technically it's not water she held him under, it's emulsion fluid.

    Coal, or charcoal.

    January 1st, 2nd, and 3rd.

    This one has me stumped.

    Edit: Okay- I see the answer was no "E"s in it. I was thinking that, but I figured the answer was more complex.

    Not looking at the replies...honest.

    #1 - Lions would have starved to death, that is the safest room.

    #2 - Something to do with clothing? No clue.

    #3 - Dunno.

    #4 - Yesterday, Today, Tomorrow.

    #5 - Heck if I know.

    No it isn't. I promise you that January 1st, 2nd, and 3rd are, in fact, 3 consecutive days. I did name them under your guidelines. Just because it's not the answer you were looking for doesn't mean it isn't right. If you can ask trick questions, then I, my dear, can give trick answers.
