Ok. The two sons get into the boat and sail to some safe destination. Only one of them comes back to the island. Then he gets out of the boat while the father gets into it and sails to the same safe destination. When the father's arrived there, he leaves the boat and the first son uses it in his turn to go to the island and bring back his brother.Fighter_Ace wrote: Riddle:
There are three guys stuck on an island? one father and his two sons. But alas, there is a boat, yet it can only hold 200 pounds. The father weighs 200 pounds and each of the boys weigh 100 pounds. How will they ALL get off?
Want a riddle? For Albert Einstein, 98% of the people in the world cannot solve the following problem (though actually it seems that this enigma hasn't been written by him). Do you belong to the other 2% ? (those of you who already know the story, beware: I shuffled the data? )
See that row of houses along the lane over there ? Five men of five different nationalities live in those five houses of five different colours. They smoke five different brands of cigarettes, drink five different types of beverages, and keep five different kind of pets.
* The Swede lives in the first house.
* The Norvegian lives in the red house.
* The Brit keeps a fish as pet.
* The Dane smokes Blend.
* The yellow house is just on the left of the white house.
* The yellow house owner drinks water.
* The man who smokes Pall Mall lives next to the one who keeps dogs.
* The person who smokes Prince rears horses.
* The owner of the green house smokes Blue Master.
* The man living in the house right in the center drinks beer.
* The German drinks tea.
* The man who smokes Pall Mall has a neighbour who drinks milk.
* The Swede lives next to the blue house.
* The man who keeps cats lives next to the man who smokes Blue Master.
* The owner who smokes Dunhill drinks coffee.
The question is ... Who keeps birds?
(to make sure it wasn?t just a lucky try of yours, would you tell me what colour is the house of the one that smokes Prince?)
