Frad? D:

Anyways, Layton opportunity. Cannot miss. So here comes one of my favorite Layton riddles:

Ten candles stand burning in a dining room.
A strong breeze blows in through an open window and extinguishes two of them. Checking in on the candles later, you see that one more candle has gone out. To make sure no more flames go out, you shut the window.
Assuming the wind doesn't extinguish any more candles, how many candles do you have left in the end?

Assuming you don't relight them, you'd have three candles once the others finish burning down.

Three.

Seems like those cats you already have are quite capable of catching a single mouse every minute.

1
11
21
1211
111221
312211
13112221
________

It's 1113213211

Second line is someone counting the numbers of the first line out loud and so on. So it goes like this. One 1. Two 1's. One 2 and one 1. Get it?




Ok. This is an old one… and is more about being bloody patient rather than smart.

First the facts:

1. Five houses stand by a street, each one with different in color.
2. In each house there's a man with a different nationality.
3. Each owner prefers one type of drink over all others, smoke a specific brand of tobacco and owns a pet.
4. None of them prefers the same drink, smokes the same tobacco nor owns the same type of animal.

Now comes the clues:

A. The British man lives in a red house.
B. The Swede owns a dog.
C. The Dane drinks tee.
D. The Green house is to the left of the white house.
E. The owner of the Green house drinks coffee.
F. The one who smokes Pall Mall owns a parrot.
G. The owner of the Yellow house smokes Dunhill.
H. The man in the house in the middle drinks milk.
I. The Norwegian lives in the first house to the left.
J. The one who smokes the mixed tobacco lives next to the one who owns a cat.
K. The person who owns a horse lives nest to the one who smokes Dunhill.
L. The one who smokes Blue Master drinks beer.
M. The German smokes Prince.
N. The Norwegian lives next to the blue house.
O. The one who smokes the mixed tobacco lives next to the person who drinks water.

And finally the question:

Which one of the 5 individuals owns the fish?
Those were my two cents.
If you have any other questions, please deposit a quarter.

Urgh. I solved that one last summer because I had a lot of spare time but I don't have the answer anymore. I'm too lazy to do it again.

Let's go an easy one.

A man goes into a cafe and orders a cup of coffee. While stiring in the sugar, notices a fly in the cup. He goes to the counter and asks the barrista for a new cup. She comes back with a coffee. The man takes a sip and tells her “This is the same coffee, you just took out the fly”.

How did he know it was the same coffee?

How did he know it was the same coffee?

He could tell because he still tasted the sugar he put in his coffee.

This is exactly why I always put cream in mine (you don't have to take a sip to determine if it's the same cup).



Okay here's one of mine:

You have two pieces of string that if you were to burn one of them at one end, the whole string would be burnt in exactly one hour. Without cutting those strings, how would you measure exactly 45 minutes just by burning them?

You have an unmarked, transparent single gallon jar of water, and you have to pour exactly half of it into a jar that is only 3/4 of a gallon, AND opaque so you can't see how much water is inside. Without using anything to measure or weigh it, how can you tell when you have poured exactly half into the second jar?

I have heard a similar version that I could figure out where there were 3 jars, rather than two, but I don't know the answer to this one.

Is this a trick question? Is the answer simply pour untill you can see that the jar is half empty because the one gallon jar is transparent?

Since no one's answered, the closest you can get to knowing if its exactly half is by stopping when the water is level with the lip and the elevated bottom end of the jar.
