    Here's a brain teaser, and it was an SAT question. Think about it, but it's tricky.

    You're in a house, absolutely nothing is in the house besides you, a downstairs square room, and then a staircase leading upstairs to an identical square room with only a lightbulb at the ceiling and nothing else.

    There are 3 lightswitches on the wall downstairs that control the lightbulb upstairs. If you are only allowed to move away from the switches to go upstairs and check ONCE to see what switch turns the light on, how do you figure it out?

    And before anyone asks, you don't just guess, you cannot see the light shining down the steps, and you can't trick anyone and go up more the once.

    Do the 2 switches that don't turn on the light upstairs switch on any lights downstairs?

    If so. You wait until you see which switches turn on lights downstairs and when 2 lights are lit by process of elimination you know that the remaining switch must turn on the light, upstairs.

    There is no feasible answer.

    You have three switches. You only have one trip. It's impossible.

    The answer has to be some stupid explanation like "Go Outside and look at a window" or some crazy shit. There's no reasonable answer like "turn on the middle and left switch, go upstairs, then come back down". There's no way to do it.

    BUT...

    If there is, PM me the answer.....

    It's not impossible at all.

    You turn the first switch on for about ten minutes or so and then turn it off.

    Then you turn the second switch on.

    Go upstairs.

    If the light is on, then the second switch is the right one.

    If the lightbulb is off and hot, it is the first switch.

    If the lightbulb is off and cold, it is the third switch.

    1 = 1 One (11)
    11 = 2 Ones (21)
    21 = 1 Two and 1 One (1211)
    1211 = 1 One, 1 Two and 2 Ones (111221)
    111221 = 3 Ones, 2 Twos and 1 One (312211)
    312211 = 1 Three, 1 One, 2 Twos and Two Ones (13112221)
    13112221 = 1 One, 1 Three, 2 Ones, 3 Twos, 1 One (1113213211)

    Answer is 1113213211


    If the difference of two numbers is 9 and their product is 17, what is the sum of their squares?

    *warning* to get the answer to this brain-teaser you have to be creative and think outside the box.

    4 people sailing in a life-boat. All smokers, and 3 emergency cigarettes. There is NOTHING else other than the people in the life-boat. How do they ignite the smokes?

    They throw the fourth person over-board to make the boat "a little lighter". Haha.

    Ok, serious one now.



    Always coming never here,
    In the distance - very near.
    Sweat and tears are shed to me,
    Blood and lives are lost for me.

    I am hope for those who strive,
    Hope denied, for I never arrive.
    To some a maiden of love and light,
    To others a curse of dread and night.
    What or who am I?


    If you look up the answer. Don't play.

    Is the wording of the puzzle important? Particularly the word 'maiden'?

    One line in the riddle is very important from my perspective.

    Not the word "maiden" though.

    Sweat and tears are shed to me,
    Blood and lives are lost for me.

    i noticed the first part there is "to me" as opposed to the second part where it's "for me"....is that important to note, or am i just looking too hard?

    Both those lines are as important as each other. Because both are very true.

    Read the lines carefully and think of your own lives.

    I am not giving anymore clues, yet.

    I'm not saying.

    Something you just typed ironically enough could be connected to the answer, though.

    Going through every word you wrote with a fine tooth comb will result in silence.

    I've got one....

    A woman wakes up in the night for a midnight snack. After she eats something, she turns off the light and goes back to bed.
    In the morning, she reads the newspaper and discovers a ship has crashed and several people have died. She then commits suicide.
    Why?

    The obvious answer is she ate cheese and had a nightmare, so none of it really happened, it was a dream.

    Nope, she didn't know anyone on the ship...although, it really wouldn't matter either way.

    A woman wakes up in the night for a midnight snack. After she eats something, she turns off the light and goes back to bed.
    In the morning, she reads the newspaper and discovers a ship has crashed and several people have died. She then commits suicide.
    Why?

    Is what she eats relevant to the answer?

    Was she going to commit suicide prior to reading the newspaper?

    Was the ship that crashed The Titanic per chance?

    Ok then

    A man is trapped in a room with nothing but a piece of wood and a saw. The room is impossible to escape out of but he manages to do so. How?


    I warn you, it's rubbish!

    God damn, I remember hearing that one and being pissed at the answer.

    There's something to do with sawing the wood in half... or something to do with a wall. I cannot remember.

    Here's one... people might have heard it already, but for those who haven't...

    A man rides into town on Friday, stays three days and still manages to leave on Friday. How so?

    What is greater than God,
    More evil than the Devil,
    The poor have it,
    The rich want it,
    but if you eat me,
    you'll die?

    The person who made me doesn't want me
    The person who brought me doesn't need me
    The person who uses me doesn't realise.

    Lisa walked out the back door of the farmhouse on a Thursday afternoon and found a man's pipe, a scarf and three lumps of coal lying on the wet grass. They weren't there on Tuesday and no one had been near the house for weeks.

    Where did the objects come from?

    Linda, an investigator who became famous after solving the murder of Maximillion Warbucks, has started her own private practice. She is searching the mansion of the multibillionaire Bigmoney Richman in hopes of finding some of Bigmoney's priceless diamonds that were hidden there by his disgruntled former butler. All that the butler left was a note that read "Can't help a novice detective every lighted inch! Elevation required!" It does not take Linda long at all to locate the diamonds, much to Bigmoney's pleasure. Where were they?

    hmmmm correct.

    Lets make a new rule. If you think you know the answer pm it to whoever's brain teaser it is. That way people aren't tempted to press the spoiler button.

    You are walking in a field. You find something to eat which is not meat and has no bones. You put it in your pocket and take it home with you. 3 days later it's not where you put it or anywhere else in the house. Why?

    I swear people are looking the answers up.

    Ok, this one is defintely harder. If someone guesses this straight away I call foul play. lol

    Carol is travelling by ship from south of the equator to the north.

    She has a nice little second class cabin which has a bathroom, but no window.


    Carol has no compass nor other instruments.
    Yet, without leaving her room or talking with anyone, Carol knew exactly when the ship crossed the equator.


    How did she know?

    mth obviously cheated

    A man walked into a shop and had the following conversation with the assistant:

    Man: How much is 1?

    Assistant: 5 sir.

    Man: Right. How much are 10?

    Assistant: 10 sir.

    Man: Right....I'll take 100 please.

    Assistant: Certainly sir. That'll be 15 please.

    Just what was the man buying?

    Is it the way the water spins in the toilet bowl?

    I learned that in physics my senior year of high school.

    Assistant: 10 sir.

    Man: Right....I'll take 100 please.

    Assistant: Certainly sir. That'll be 15 please.

    Just what was the man buying?
    Numbers... like for his house or door or mailbox.

    4 people sailing in a life-boat. All smokers, and 3 emergency cigarettes. There is NOTHING else other than the people in the life-boat. How do they ignite the smokes?

    They throw the fourth person over-board to make the boat "a little lighter". Haha.

    Ok, serious one now.



    Always coming never here,
    In the distance - very near.
    Sweat and tears are shed to me,
    Blood and lives are lost for me.

    I am hope for those who strive,
    Hope denied, for I never arrive.
    To some a maiden of love and light,
    To others a curse of dread and night.
    What or who am I?


    If you look up the answer. Don't play.
    This one also sounds like it could be the rapture.

    Sorry, but your physics teacher was wrong. That's a myth.
