Brain Teaser

A man in a restaurant asked a waiter for a juice glass, a dinner plate, water, a match, and a lemon wedge. The man poured enough water onto the plate to cover it. "If you can get the water on the plate into this glass without touching or moving this plate, I will give you $100," the man said. "You can use the match and lemon to do this." A few minutes later, the waiter walked away with $100 in his pocket. How did the waiter get the water into the glass?
First, the waiter stuck the match into the lemon wedge, so that it would stand straight. Then he lit the match, and put it in the middle of the plate with the lemon. Then, he placed the glass upside-down over the match. As the flame used up the oxygen in the glass, it created a small vacuum, which sucked in the water through the space between the glass and the plate. Thus, the waiter got the water into the glass without touching or moving the plate.
(You can try this experiment at home with appropriate supervision.)

Riddle

The first is needed to make quotes you see, And it often sticks up when it's time for noon tea. The second's biggest distinction is found Bearing the symbol of love that is bound. The third should be biggest but that can depend, Never standing alone or it may offend. The fourth is oft used when making a selection Or if you should need a gun for protection. The fifth is the fattest and oddest by far, And can sometimes be found in a wrestling war. What are they?
The digits of the hand! (The order on the poem is pinky, ring finger, middle finger, index or pointer finger, and thumb)
The pinky hits the quotation mark key on the keyboard when typing, and people often raise their pinky off the cup when drinking tea. The ring finger bears a wedding band when married. The middle finger is an obscene gesture when standing alone. You point with the index finger to make a selection, or use it to pull the trigger on a gun. The thumb can be used for thumb wrestling.

Trivia

A phobia is an irrational fear or hatred of a specific thing or situation which compels one to avoid it despite awareness and reassurance that the object or situation is not dangerous. Listed below are the names and definitions of six phobias. Five are real phobias documented in psychology journals, while one is an imposter. Can you determine which one from the list below is not a real phobia?
Trichopathophobia - Fear of hair Pentheraphobia - Fear of mother-in-law Aibohphobia - Fear of Palindromes Doraphobia - Fear of fur or skins of animals Logizomechanophobia - Fear of computers. Onomatophobia- Fear of hearing a certain word or of certain names.
answer: Aibohphobia is not a real, documented phobia, it is actually a joke started on the Internet. It has not appeared in any documented psychology journal. The joke, of course, is that the word Aibohphobia is a palindrome. The title is part of a quote on fear from the book Dune, by Frank Herbert.

Riddle

I live above a star, and yet I never burn, I have eleven neighbors, and yet none of them turn, I am visited in sequence, first, last or in between, PRS (& sometimes Q) are my initials, Now, tell me what I mean.
The ''7'' on the telephone keypad (new ones have the letter Q with the PRS)

Trivia

Our eyes are always the same size from birth, but what on our face never stops growing?
Our nose and ears never stop growing.

Brain Teaser

A man is sitting in a pub feeling rather poor. He sees the man next to him pull a wad of £50 notes out of his wallet. He turns to the rich man and says to him, "I have an amazing talent: I know almost every song that has ever existed." The rich man laughs. The poor man says, "I am willing to bet you all the money you have in your wallet that I can sing a genuine song with a lady's name of your choice in it." The rich man laughs again and says, "OK, how about my daughter's name, Joanna Armstrong-Miller?" The rich man goes home poor. The poor man goes home rich. What song did he sing?
"Happy Birthday." This song can be sung with anyone's name in it.

Riddle

It's true I bring serenity, And hang around the stars, But yet I live in misery, You'll find me behind bars. With thieves and villains I consort, In prison I'll be found, But I would never go to court, Unless there's more than one.
I am the letter S

What are the four words in the English language which end in "dous">
tremendous, horrendous, stupendous and hazardous.

Brain Teaser

In this teaser, you have to find the odd ones out in the groups of words. BUT WAIT! There's a catch. Each group of words has TWO words which do not belong. Can you find them both? EXAMPLE: Lily - Jane - Tulip - Rose Jane does not belong as it's the only one which is not a flower Tulip also does not belong because it's the only one which is not a girl's name You're on you own for the rest! 1. Dodge - Ford - Lincoln - Hoover 2. King - Earl - Knight - Bishop 3. Yellow - Green - Dead - Black

1. Hoover does not belong as it's the only one which is not a Car Manufacturer, Dodge does not belong as it's the only one which is not the last name of a President of USA
2. Bishop does not belong as it's the only one which is not a class of nobility, Earl does not belong as it's the only one which is not a Chess piece
3. Dead does not belong as it's the only one which is not a color, Green does not belong as it's the only one which is not the name of a sea.

Riddle

I drift forever with the current Down these long canals they've made Tame, yet wild, I run elusive Multitasking to your aid. Before I came, the world was darker Colder, sometimes, rougher, true But though I might make living easy, I'm good at killing people too.
I am Electricity

Trivia

I was on a road trip with a friend when we drove past a very tall radio tower. I told my friend "That thing has to be at least a thousand feet tall!" He looked out the window for a moment, and said "I'll bet it's closer to 1500 feet." We stopped at a gas station and asked how tall the tower was, and it was exactly 1500 feet tall! Now that I owe my friend a steak dinner, how could he tell how tall the tower was?
Radio towers are always painted with alternating red and white stripes. If the tower is over 700 feet tall, every stripe is 100 feet high. My friend just counted the 15 stripes and knew immediately it was 1500 feet tall. This only works if it's over 700 feet; if it's under 700 feet, the tower will always have seven stripes. Bonus Factoid: The top stripe on the tower is always red.

Brain Teaser

Trivia

According to U.S. law, there are officially designated days that all U.S. flags are to be flown at half-mast (for example: Memorial Day). The President and state governors also have the right to declare certain days that flags are to be flown at half-mast. There is a particular group of U.S. flags that are never lowered to half-mast and appear to "violate" this U.S. Law. These flags were erected by U.S. Military personnel, but those troops will never be accused of doing anything wrong for those violations. These flags are currently displayed today, and they have been for numerous years. Where is this particular group of flags displayed?
These flags are on the moon. The first of these U.S. flags were deployed to the moon on July 20, 1969 by NASA astronauts. There are a total of 6 US flags deployed to the moon surface, one for each visit to the moon (Apollo 11, 12, 14, 15, 16 & 17). We can only assume they are still standing and were not knocked down when the lunar modules' engines fired.

Brain Teaser

A man wanted to encrypt his password but he needed to do it in a way so that he could remember it. His password is 7 characters long. The password consists of letters and numbers only (no symbols like ! or <). In order to remember it he wrote down "You force heaven to be empty" Can you guess what his password is?

Riddle

I have been called a savage, a chief and oft times a leader. Some have called me the embodiment of courage, although to a Crook I did surrender. Where I was born, there were no enclosures. In the end, to bring me down, it took 5000 soldiers. As the "terror of the country", I had a reputation of cruelty and cunning. My tactics consisted of hitting and then running. Many movies and stories of me were made. The memories of me, the most famous of my people, will never fade. People have spoken ill of me so many times it would give your throat a lump. Yet sometimes, my name is the last word said when people make a big jump. Now it's time to give it a try. Do you know my name; who am I?
My name, in case you still don't know. Is simply one word, Geronimo. Geronimo was quoted to have said, "Where I was born, there were no enclosures". Autobiographers have stated it took more than 5000 soldiers and 500 scouts to capture Geronimo the last time and often referred to him as "the terror of the country". In 1883, Geronimo surrendered to General George Crook.

Brain Teaser

A teacher and his students stand in an empty room. The room has no windows, no chalk, and no chalkboard. The room is completely barren except for 10 students and one teacher. The students ask the teacher if they can go eat lunch, and the teacher says, "That won`t be necessary, it is already here." How did they get their lunch?
The teacher is a mathematics teacher. He makes each student pluck a hair out of their head. He then breaks off the root of each hair follicle and places all ten roots in the shape of a square. The square root of 10 is an old approximation of pi. The students divide the pie and eat lunch. Riddles
