Trick questions
1. What do you put in a toaster?




Simple to answer, right?




Answer: "bread." If you said "toast," give up now and do something else.

2. Say "silk" five times. Now spell "silk." What do cows drink?










Answer: Cows drink water. If you said "milk," don't attempt the next question.

3. If a red house is made from red bricks and a blue house is made from blue bricks and a pink house is made from pink bricks and a black house is made from black bricks, what is a green house made from?










Answer: Greenhouses are made from glass. If you said "green bricks," why the hell are you still reading these?

4. It's twenty years ago, and a plane is flying at 20,000 feet over Germany (If you will recall, Germany at the time was politically divided into West Germany and East Germany.) Anyway, during the flight, TWO engines fail. The pilot, realizing that the last remaining engine is also failing,decides on a crash landing procedure. Unfortunately the engine fails before he can do so and the plane fatally crashes smack in the middle of "no man's land" between East Germany and West Germany. Where would you bury the survivors? East Germany, West Germany, or no man's land"?











Answer: You don't bury survivors. If you said ANYTHING else, you're a dunce and you must stop.


5. Without using a calculator - You are driving a bus from London to Milford Haven in Wales. In London, 17 people get on the bus; In Reading, six people get off the bus and nine people get on. In Swindon, two people get off and four get on In Cardiff , 11 people get off and 16 people get on. In Swansea, three people get off and five people get on In Carmathen, six people get off and three get on. You then arrive at Milford Haven. What was the name of the bus driver?











Answer: Oh, for crying out loud! Don't you remember your own name? It was YOU!!

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. I don't know. Now, go to work and try your luck.
















Answer: in the whole paragraph there is no 'e' used



2. If you had only one match, and entered a dark room containing an oil lamp, some newspaper, and some kindling wood, which would you light first?
















Answer: the match

A detective arrives on the scene of a death. A man was sitting slumped in a chair with a pencil clenched in one hand, and a bottle of half drunk cyanide in the other. In front of him on a desk was a suicide letter. After taking one look at the body the detective knew for a fact that the man was murdered. How?







answer: He wouldn't get paid as much if it wasn't. lol. jking, the real answer is if the man drank cyanide, his muscles would go limp thus, he would not be able to hold on to the cyanide and pencils.
