  • The Lift
    There is a man that lives on the top floor of a very tall building.
    Everyday he gets the elevator down to the ground floor to leave the building to go to work.
    Upon returning from work though, he can only travel half way up in the lift and has to walk the rest of the way unless it's raining!
    This is probably the best known and most celebrated of all lateral thinking puzzles.
    It is a true classic. Although there are many possible solutions which fit the initial conditions, only the canonical answer is truly satisfying.

    This puzzle has claims to be the best of the genre.
    It is simple in its statement, absolutely baffling and yet with a completely satisfying solution.
    Most people struggle very hard to solve this one yet they like the
    Answer when they hear it or have the satisfaction of figuring it out.


  • The Lift
    The man is very very short and so can only reach half way up the lift buttons!

    › The older twin, Terry, was born first early on March 1st.
    › The boat then crossed a time zone and Kerry, the younger twin, was born on February the 28th.
    Therefore, the younger twin celebrates her birthday two days before her older brother.

  • Manhole Covers

    This puzzle stumps many people.
    They try outlandish ! ! ! solutions involving test-tube babies or Surrogate mothers.
    Why do they brain for complex solutions when there is a much simpler one available?

  • The Man in the Bar
    The man had hiccups.
    The barman recognized this from his speech and drew the gun in order to give him a shock.It worked and cured the hiccups - so the man no longer needed the water.

This a simple puzzle to state but a difficult one to solve.
It is a perfect example of a seemingly irrational and incongruous
Situation having a simple and complete explanation.
Amazingly this classic puzzle seems to work in different cultures and languages.
