Thread: Brain teasers that will make you groan ...

    Brain teasers that will make you groan ...

    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. There are two plastic jugs filled with water. How could you put all of this water into a barrel, without using the jugs or any dividers, and still tell which water came from which jug?

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

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

    6. 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.



    I will post the answers later

    room #3. The lions are dead.

    1. I would say that the room with the lions who haven't eaten in three years would be the safest, if for no other reason than they would either be dead or too weak to attack.

    Cheers

    Re:Brain teasers that will make you groan ...

    how did you guys get it so fast ??? ???

    will here is numbers 4 and 6

    #4 The answer is Charcoal.
    #5 The letter "e", which is the most common letter in the English language, does not appear once in the long paragraph...

    ok try this


    Quick Eye Exam...

    This will blow your mind...!

    Just do it - don't cheat!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Try this its actually quite good.
    >
    But don't cheat!

    Count the number of F's in the following text:

    FINISHED FILES ARE THE
    RESULT OF YEARS OF SCIENTIFIC
    STUDY COMBINED WITH THE
    EXPERIENCE OF YEARS
    Managed it?

    Scroll down only after you have counted them!

    OK?


    How many?


    Three?

    Wrong, there are six - no joke!
    Read again!
    FINISHED FILES ARE THE
    RESULT OF YEARS OF SCIENTIFIC
    STUDY COMBINED WITH THE
    EXPERIENCE OF YEARS



    The reasoning is further down...

    The brain cannot process the word "OF".


    Incredible or what?

    Anyone who counts all six F's on the first go is a genius
    Three is normal.

    I counted four. Slightly above normal

    Re:Brain teasers that will make you groan ...

    That is very straange. I read over the paragraph several times and didn't catch it. As soon as I saw the word OF in the reasoning, they magically appeared.
