  • OT. The Friday Puzzle

    Many of you will have seen this before, but for those who haven't, it's a nice little puzzle.

    Supposedly, Albert Einstein once posed a brain teaser that he predicted only 2% of the worlds population would be able to solve. Here it is:

    FACTS:
    1. There are 5 houses in 5 different colours.
    2. In each house lives a person with a different nationality.
    3. These 5 owners drink a certain beverage, smoke a certain brand of cigarette and keep a certain pet.
    4. No owners have the same pet, brand of cigaratte, or drink.

    CLUES:
    1. The Brit lives in a red house
    2. The Swede keeps a dog
    3. The Dane drinks tea
    4. The green house is on the left of the white house.
    5. The green house owner drinks coffee.
    6. The person who smokes Pall Mall keeps birds.
    7. The owner of the yellow house smokes Dunhill.
    8. The man living in the house right in the center drinks milk
    9. The Norwegian lives in the first house.
    10. The man who smokes Blend lives next to the one who keeps cats
    11. The man who keeps horses lives next to the man who smokes Dunhill
    12. The owner who smokes Camel drinks beer
    13. The German smokes Marlborough.
    14. The Norwegian lives next to the blue house
    15. The man who smokes Blend has a neighbour who drinks water.

    The question is, who keeps the fish?

    The answer's easy enough to find on the web, of course. Much more satisfying to work it out for yourself though...

      Nah you got it wrong.
      Albert Einstein said that only 2% of the worlds population has enough free time to waste to solve it.

            If anybody can actually do this in their head they are a genius,

            I had to draw 5 squares and start putting the answers in them.
