    Talking Brain Teasers

    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 Wednesday,
    Friday, or Sunday?

    5. This is an unusual paragraph. I'm curious as to just how quickly you
    can find out what is so unusual about it. It looks so ordinary and plain
    that you would think nothing was wrong with it. In fact, nothing is wrong
    with it! It is highly 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!

    Answers posted tomorrow!

    2. The wife photographed the husband and processed the film herself.

    3. Newspaper?

    The other ones have got me at the moment though!

    2. The wife is a photographer and has photographed her husband.
    3. Coal.
    4. Yesterday, today, tomorrow.
    5. There's no letter 'e' in the paragraph anywhere.

    No actually.

    Boxing Day is not the day after Christmas Day if Christmas Day falls on a Saturday. St. Stephen's Day IS always the day following Christmas Day.

    And the answers are:

    1. The third room. Lions that haven't eaten in three years are dead. That
    one was easy, right?

    2. The woman was a photographer. She shot a picture of her husband,
    developed it, and hung it up to dry (shot; held under water; and hung).

    3. Charcoal, as it is used in barbecuing.

    4. Sure you can name three consecutive days, yesterday, today, and tomorrow!

    5. The letter e, which is the most common letter used in the English
    language, does not appear even once in the paragraph.

    Well done to all, especially sdc
