Here's a quick brain-ache teaser from Jon of 'Mysterion',
Did you get it right? Next issue, you can check...
And here's another from Jill on 'Diefenbaker':
A man gets into the lift at the fifteenth floor, every morning, gets out at the ground floor and goes to work.
In the evenings, he comes back, carrying his briefcase and his shopping and gets into the lift but
always gets out again at the seventh floor and walks the rest of the way up the stairs, even when he is dog-tired. Why?
Can you figure it out?
Solve the following puzzle in under 30 seconds!
Two Russians walked down a street in Moscow. One Russian is the father of the other Russian's son. How are they related?
Don't worry, in the next issue we'll print the answers for anyone who is still
Baffling Birthdays (Do this on your calculator)
This is a good trick to use with a friend whose birthday or age you don't know. Tell them to follow the directions below with the calculator, and you will tell them in which month they were born and how old they are. The example is for a 33 year old, born in August.
1.Enter the number of the month 8
2.Multiply by 10 80
3.Add 20 100
4.Multiply by 10 1000
5.Add 165 1165
6.Add your age  1198
7.Now take the calculator back
from your friend and, without showing
them what you are doing, subtract 365 833
The last 1 or 2 digits are your friends age. The first digit/s is the number of the month in which they were born.
Can you figure this one out?
