Okay, I'll post a lateral thinking puzzle, and we'll think of some sort of prize for the person who gets the most right. Nothing good though. :lol:

The first one to get a correct answer gets a point. Most points at the end gets my silly rubbishy prize. Isn't that a great deal. It's just a bit of fun.

If you've heard the puzzle before, keep schtum, give others a chance, don't spoil it for them. Also, it's possible to cheat with Google, but I'd think you'd be more honest really. It's just a game.

Scores

1. A man lives on the tenth floor of a building. Every day he takes the elevator to go down to the ground floor to go to work or to go shopping. When he returns he takes the elevator to the seventh floor and walks up the stairs to reach his apartment on the tenth floor. He hates walking so why does he do it?

I'll post a clue on Friday evening if nobody's got it by then. Good Luck!

2. A man walks into a bar and asks the barman for a glass of water. The barman pulls out a gun and points it at the man. The man says 'Thank you' and walks out.

No clue here.

3.Six drinking glasses stand in a row, with the first three full of water and the next three empty. How can you arrange the six glasses so that no full glass stands next to another full glass, and no empty glass stands next to another empty glass, by only picking up one glass?

Take the middle glass full of water, and pour the water from that glass into the middle of the empty ones, and voila.

4. Two men enter a bar. One is tall and thin, the other is short and round. They both order identical drinks. One lives; the other dies. How is this?

Possible I suppose, but why would one not be able to withstand it, but the other would? Wrong, I'm afraid.

But again, why would it differ between the two men? Wrong again!

I'll give a clue at a quarter ten past past midnight.

When the tall guy is ordering his drink, does it strike midnight, and the bar man turns into a warewolf. and hes sees the tall thin guy, and attacks him, but leaves the tiny chappy, cos hes cant see him?

I am really think on a string here
