Question 11 Questions That Mess With Your Head

Q1. 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?

Q2. 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?

Q3. A magician was boasting one day at how long he could hold his breath under water. His record was 6 minutes. A kid that was listening said, "that's nothing, I can stay under water for 10 minutes using no type of equipment or air pockets!" The magician told the kid if he could do that, he'd give him $10,000. The kid did it and won the money. Can you figure out how?

Q4. 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?

Q5. What is black when you buy it, red when you use it, and grey when you throw it away?

Q6. Can you name three consecutive days without using the words Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, or Sunday?

Q7. 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!

Q8. You are participating in a race. You overtake the second person. What position are you in?

Q9. If you overtake the last person, then you are...?

Q10. (in your head!) Take 1000 and add 40 to it. Now add another 1000. Now add 30. Add another 1000. Now add 20. Now add another 1000. Now add 10. What is the total?

Q11. Mary's father has five daughters: 1. Nana, 2. Nene, 3. Nini, 4. Nono. What is the name of the fifth daughter?

Her husband's in a photograph. Shoot, develop, hang.

I swear I haven't seen any of these before, so I think I'll give them a try.

The lions are dead, so that would be the best room.

She's a photographer.

He held a glass of water over his head.

Leave the water in the jugs; place the jugs in the barrel.

edit: shoot, I didn't read carefully enough. Okay, freeze the water in both jugs, break them open, then put the ice in the barrels.

Will "yesterday, today, and tomorrow" work?

There are no Es. Okay, I haven't seen this one before, but I admit I've seen things like it.

Second.

Quote:
Q9. If you overtake the last person, then you are...?
Are you overtaking the last person after having overtaken the second, or is this a different scenario? If it's a different scenario, and you overtake the last person, you COULD be in the lead in a race on a circular (or ovate) track; but then you could also be in second-to-last and still lap the trailer. I guess I get this one wrong.

4100?

Mary.

I guess I can't get that black/red/grey one...someone else?

Scriv's got all correct so far, except for the black, red, gray thing. Yes, you're in the lead if you overtake the last person (lap the last dude).

Why, charcoal, of course. A classic.

But couldn't the second-to-last person ALSO lap the last dude? This is a flawed question.

Good point. Hey, I didn't make these up!

And yes, it is charcoal, Ry-Ry

The lions. If they haven't eaten for 3 years then more than likey there are too weak to attack anyone.

Oh wait. After 3 years without eating anything those lions would be dead. Still it would be the safest room assuming the smell of decaying lions don't get to you.
