Alright, I'm claiming the right to be the first person to post a brainteaser on here! Neither of them are terribly difficult, but here they are anyways:
1)How quickly can you find out what is unusual about this paragraph? It looks so ordinary that you would think that nothing was wrong with it at all and, in fact, nothing is. But it is unusual. Why? If you study it and think about it you may find out, but I am not going to assist you in any way. You must do it without coaching. No doubt, if you work at it for long, it will dawn on you. Who knows? Go to work and try your skill. Par is about half an hour.
2)I'm in a rock, not in a stone
I'm in marrow, not in bone
I'm in a bolster, not in a bed
I'm not living , I'm not dead
1) Doesn't contain the most frequently used letter in the alphabet - 'e' ?????????
2) Don't know
2) Keep trying
Hint: To solve #2, think along the same lines as #1
To keep the number at 2, here's another one:
You have two hourglasses--a 4-minute glass and a 7-minute glass. You want to measure 9 minutes. How do you do it?
why use an hour glass in this day & age,just go get yourself a stopwatch
1) letter 'r'
2) Start 7 minute and 4 minute together. Turn 4 minute over as soon as it's finished. When 7 minute finishes time starts(4 mintue has 1 minute left to run). Turn 4 minute over twice more - time stops.
I hate puzzles. It's like coding.
Perhaps this is easy
There is a room with one lamp hanging from the ceiling and a chair. Outside the room there are 3 switches. Only one switch turns on the lamp.
At the begining all the switches are off and you're allowed to go into the room only once. So, how do you know which switch lights the lamp?
switch them all on lol.... you will be sure you got the right one. Doesn't say you are only allowed to flick one switch.
ok heres a new one.
A man walks up to a farmhouse and asks the farmer for a glass of water.The farmer goes into his house and comes out with a shotgun which he points at the man. The man walks away satisfied. Why??
Here's a riddle - guess what the answer is:
This thing all things devours;
Birds, beasts, trees and flowers;
Gnaws iron, bites steel;
Grinds hard stones to meal;
Slays king, ruins town
And beat high mountain down.
for [stealth]'s ...... time.
