    Default Brain Teaser

    After a couple of beers, my friend gave me this puzzle to solve just a few hours earlier. Not something you want to do when you are a little buzz. But i finally got it before going home. See if you guys can solve this.

    Let us assume that there are five houses of different colors next to each other on the same road. In each house lives a man of a different nationality. Every man has his favorite drink, his favorite brand of cigarettes, and keeps pets of a particular kind.
    1. The Englishman lives in the red house.
    2. The Swede keeps dogs.
    3. The Dane drinks tea.
    4. The green house is just to the left of the white one.
    5. The owner of the green house drinks coffee.
    6. The Pall Mall smoker keeps birds.
    7. The owner of the yellow house smokes Dunhills.
    8. The man in the center house drinks milk.
    9. The Norwegian lives in the first house.
    10. The Blend smoker has a neighbor who keeps cats.
    11. The man who smokes Blue Masters drinks bier.
    12. The man who keeps horses lives next to the Dunhill smoker.
    13. The German smokes Prince.
    14. The Norwegian lives next to the blue house.
    15. The Blend smoker has a neighbor who drinks water.

    The question to be answered is: Who keeps fish?

    the real answer to this question should be we will never know who keeps fish

    cos fish was never mentioned in the hints

    but based on those 14 hints (1 hint is useless)

    we know what everyone keeps except German

    if we think logically to the question, the answer could be German keeps fish, but in fact German can keep anything he wants and those 15 hints still work

    Default I Have One For You Guys

    When little Manly was in first grade, the teacher asked everyone to use these 3 words in a sentence: green, pink and yellow.

    Little Oli raised his hand and said, "I live in a yellow house with green grass and pink flowers."

    The teacher said, "Good job, Oli!"

    Then little Jaku raised his hand and said, "When I grow up, I want to have a pink S2000, with yellow interior and a green hard top."

    The teacher said, "Hmmm...that's very interesting. Who's next?"

    Then little Manly excitedly raised his hand and shouted, "Grrreen, Grrreen, Grrreen, I pink up the phone and said, "Yellow".
