    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.

    Answers below dont cheat and look now
































    1. The third. Lions that haven't eaten in three years
    are dead.


    2. The woman was a photographer. She shot a picture of
    her husband, developed it, and hung it up to dry.


    3. Freeze them first. Take them out of the jugs and
    put the ice in the barrel. You will be able to tell
    which water came from which jug.


    4. The answer is Charcoal.


    5. Sure you can: Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow!


    6. The letter "e", which is the most common letter in
    the English language, does not appear once in the long
    paragraph.
