(One of those words where if you say and think it enough, in a short enough length of time,

It starts to lose it's meaning.  Or am I the only one that happens to?)



Number One:

A Fork In The Road

You're walking along a dirt road in a thick forest. You come to a fork in the road. There is a house standing in the middle of the fork. One road goes to the left and the other goes to the right. In front of the house there's a sign that reads:


Down one of these two roads lies a pot of gold - more than you can imagine. You can have it all.

Down the other path there is a man-eating tiger that will pounce on you and feed his family of four.

Inside the house there lives a pair of twin brothers. They are completely identical except:

One brother NEVER lies. He ALWAYS tells the truth.

The other brother NEVER tells the truth. He ALWAYS lies.

You can only ask ONE question to find out which way to go for the gold.

Only one brother will answer the door.


When you knock on the door you don't know which twin is answering.

What question do you ask?



Number Two:

Father/Son Accident

A man and his son are driving along when they get into a serious accident.

The Father goes to the nearest quick care unit while his son is airlifted to surgery five miles away.

The doctor walks into the operating room, takes a look at the boy and says,

"I can't operate on this boy. He's my son." Explain.



Number Three

Goat, Wolf and Cabbage

A farmer returns from the market, where he bought a goat, a cabbage and a wolf.

On the way home he must cross a river. His boat is small and won't fit more than one of his purchases.

He cannot leave the goat alone with the cabbage (because it would eat it),

Nor he can leave the goat alone with the wolf (because the wolf would eat tha goat).

How can the farmer get everything on the other side in this river?
