but i bet there arnt many of you who will see anything other than a couple having fun...



how long did it take you to realise that there is more than meets the eye?


Oh and a few questions that entertained me for a few mins...

Q1. A murderer is condemned to death. He has to choose between three rooms: The first is full of raging fires, the second is full of assassins with loaded guns, and the third is full of lions that haven't eaten in 3 years. Which room is safest for him?

Q2. A woman shoots her husband. Then she holds him under water for over 5 minutes. Finally, she hangs him. But 5 minutes later they both go out together and enjoy a wonderful dinner together. How can this be?

Q3. A magician was boasting one day at how long he could hold his breath under water. His record was 6 minutes. A kid that was listening said, "that's nothing, I can stay under water for 10 minutes using no type of equipment or air pockets!" The magician told the kid if he could do that, he'd give him $10,000. The kid did it and won the money. Can you figure out how?

Q4. There are two plastic jugs filled with water. How could you put all of this water into a barrel, without using the jugs or any dividers, and still tell which water came from which jug?

Q5. What is black when you buy it, red when you use it, and grey when you throw it away?

Q6. Can you name three consecutive days without using the words Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, or Sunday?

Q7. This is an unusual paragraph. I'm curious how quickly you can find out what is so unusual about it? It looks so plain you would think nothing was wrong with it! In fact, nothing is wrong with it! It is unusual though. Study it, and think about it, but you still may not find anything odd. But if you work at it a bit, you might find out! Try to do so without any coaching!

Q8. You are participating in a race. You overtake the second person. What position are you in?

Q9. If you overtake the last person, then you are...?

Q10. (in your head!) Take 1000 and add 40 to it. Now add another 1000. Now add 30. Add another 1000. Now add 20. Now add another 1000. Now add 10. What is the total?

Q11. Mary's father has five daughters: 1. Nana, 2. Nene, 3. Nini, 4. Nono. What is the name of the fifth daughter?

If you overtake someone in second, you are now in second.
If yu overtake whoever was in last place, well then you're technically not in the race.

Good point.

You can't overtake the last person! If you are first and lap the last one, you don't overtake the last place.

Doesn't the jug question say you can't use the jugs? I thought that would mean you can't just put the jugs in the barrel.

okay, first my eyes were drawn to the couple, then i noticed the jar and the water.

1) just a guess, but the murderer would be safest in the room with the men with guns. i figure he could get out of it somehow.

2) "him" refers to a picture being taken and developed.

3) another guess, but the kid took a ten minute shower?

4) one of the jugs is ice? doesn't make much sense as jugs normally have a tapered top

5) charcoal?

6) yesterday, today, tomorrow

7) the odd thing is that it's unusual? lots of exclamation marks? i don't know.

8) either third to last or second place, depending on what "second person" means.

9) doesn't make much sense....if someone is in last place, you can't overtake them. and overtaking the last person shouldn't mean the last person before you are in first place. i'm gonna go with "you're in first place"

10) 5000

11) mary

edit: after looking through answers left by others, i realize what ones i got wrong and feel foolish for missing the easy ones ....and now i see all those dolphins. when someone first said there were dolphins, i thought they were referring to the highlights on the top part of the bottle.

Question 10 confused me tons, I had to get the calculator out after adding it up and wondering how I went wrong.

Quote by Jacksonsoad
How is 10s answer 4100?


1000+1000+1000+1000 = 4000

40 + 30 + 20 + 10 = 100

4000 + 100 = 4100

10 is a classic. I've got it to be 5000 first, but after a second of afterthought I just realized that I fell for that old trick. Yeah, and the jug-question... You can't use any dividers or the jugs, and if you put them in the barrell, well aren't you using the jugs as dividers? So freezing the water and turn it into ice seems like a better idea (thanks dudius).

4) Pour a jug into the barrell then spill the barrell on the floor, then pour the second jug in?

Ah... Thanks man! I was going crazy over that picture! Now I also noticed the label reads "dauphins", which gotta mean dolphins, leading to the fact that the image was not supposed to look like a couple, although it looks more than a couple than dolphins... coincidence?

Q6. Can you name three consecutive days without using the words Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, or Sunday?

Q7. This is an unusual paragraph. I'm curious how quickly you can find out what is so unusual about it? It looks so plain you would think nothing was wrong with it! In fact, nothing is wrong with it!

Q11. Mary's father has five daughters: 1. Nana, 2. Nene, 3. Nini, 4. Nono. What is the name of the fifth daughter?


Q6 Yesterday, Today, Tomorrow

Q7 I have seen this before, the answer is the paragraph does not have the letter e

Q8 Second

Q9 You are winning. The person you overtook was last. You were behind that person. So for them to be last, and you to be behind them you must be winning.

Q10 4100, When I first did this a while ago I made the mistake of thinking it was 5000. It's an easy mistake to make, because you carry the 1 from the tens column to the thousands column.

Q11 Nuna. The letters after the two 'N's in all of the names are vowels. The first 4 are in the order of A, E, I, and O. The last name will follow the pattern and have a U between the 'N's. This will make the name Nuna.
