Who's up for a little brain teaser?

  1. Here's the first one:

    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
    The third is full of lions that haven't eaten in 3 years.

    Which room is safest for him?

    Ummmm the Lions. If they haven't eaten in 3 years.... ummmm aren't they dead??

    Yup, you got that right!

    Ok, here's another:

    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?

    Don't pour the water out of the jugs, just place both jugs into the barrel. Keep em coming - this is fun!

    OK - the above was my husbands answer - and considering I just realized it is WRONG, I will rethink it.

    LOL - I like the "freeze both jugs" idea.... You're right, Mary.... this is fun!

    Bingo, Jenny! Freeze them is the correct answer!

    Ready for another? Try this one.

    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.
