"A group of people with assorted eye colors live on an island. They are all perfect logicians -- if a conclusion can be logically deduced, they will do it instantly. No one knows the color of their eyes. Every night at midnight, a ferry stops at the island. If anyone has figured out the color of their own eyes, they [must] leave the island that midnight. Everyone can see everyone else at all times and keeps a count of the number of people they see with each eye color (excluding themselves), but they cannot otherwise communicate. Everyone on the island knows all the rules in this paragraph. On this island there are 100 blue-eyed people, 100 brown-eyed people, and the Guru (she happens to have green eyes). So any given blue-eyed person can see 100 people with brown eyes and 99 people with blue eyes (and one with green), but that does not tell him his own eye color; as far as he knows the totals could be 101 brown and 99 blue. Or 100 brown, 99 blue, and he could have red eyes. The Guru is allowed to speak once (let's say at noon), on one day in all their endless years on the island. Standing before the islanders, she says the following: "I can see someone who has blue eyes." Who leaves the island, and on what night? There are no mirrors or reflecting surfaces, nothing dumb. It is not a trick question, and the answer is logical. It doesn't depend on tricky wording or anyone lying or guessing, and it doesn't involve people doing something silly like creating a sign language or doing genetics. The Guru is not making eye contact with anyone in particular; she's simply saying "I count at least one blue-eyed person on this island who isn't me." And lastly, the answer is not "no one leaves." " [link] It's a good puzzle. Unfortunetly, I thought that I misunderstood the puzzle and looked up the solution, but there is really enough information to solve the puzzle.

Three ants were walking in a straight line (one behind the other). The first ant said "There are two ants behind me". The second ant said "There is one ant in front of me and one ant behind me". The third ant said "There are two ants in front of me and two ants behind me". Why did the third ant say that?

The most common lies in the English Language: It wasn't me. I'm fine. Gee, you haven’t changed a bit. The cheque is in the mail. I never got the message. We service what we sell. She is only a friend. Your baby looks so beautiful. That looks so good on you. One size fits all. I'll start my diet on Monday. Thank you, dinner was so delicious. I need 5 minutes of your time. I never said that. Give me your number and the doctor will call you right back. Money cheerfully refunded. This offer limited to the first 100 people who call in. Leave your CV and we’ll keep it on file. This hurts me more than it hurts you. Your table will be ready in a few minutes. Open wide, it won’t hurt a bit. Let’s have lunch sometime. It’s not the money, it’s the principle. I wasn’t feeling well. I didn’t want to hurt your feelings. I was just kidding. I was only trying to help. If you can think of any more, feel free to add them here.

Hi everybody Riddles are a kind of entertainment for our brain. Some of them are very easy and the others are complex and need more intelligence and intention to understand the meaning. In my opinion, they can also be used to enrich our knowledge and vocabulary as regards training languages. Thereby, to stimulate your brain I propose these easy riddles: We put me on the table. We cut me, but we don't eat me. whom am I ? I'm as big as the Eiffel Tower and lighter too. Whom am I ?) You can have me but cannot hold me; Gain me and quickly lose me. If treated with care I can be great, And if betrayed I will break. What am I? Almost everyone needs it, asks for it, gives it, but almost nobody takes it. What is it? What never asks questions but must always be answered?..... Good Luck ...

There is no egg in eggplant or ham in hamburger; neither apple nor pine in pineapple... Is cheese the plural of choose? If teachers taught, why didn't preachers praught? If a vegetarian eats vegetables, what does a humanitarian eat? In what language do people recite at a play, and play at a recital? Ship by truck, and send cargo by ship? Have noses that run and feet that smell? Park on driveways and drive on parkways? Sweetmeats are candies, while sweetbreads, which aren't sweet, are meat. We take English for granted. But if we explore its paradoxes, we find that quicksand can work slowly, boxing rings are square, and a guinea pig is neither from Guinea nor is it a pig. And why is it that writers write, but fingers don't fing, grocers don't groce, and hammers don't ham? If the plural of tooth is teeth, why isn't the plural of booth beeth? One goose, 2 geese. So, one moose, 2 meese? One index, two indices? How can the weather be hot as hell one day and cold as hell another? When a house burns up, it burns down. You fill in a form by filling it out, and an alarm clock goes off by going on. When the stars are out, they are visible, but when the lights are out, they are invisible. And why, when I wind up my watch, I start it, but when I wind up this essay, I end it? .English muffins were not invented in England or French fries in France. How can 'slim chance and a fat chance' be the same, while ' wise man and a wise guy' are opposites? Now i know why i failed in english.

U saw a shirt for 97.00, and since you don't have enough cash, you borrowed 50.00 from your mother and 50.00 from your father which will give you 100.11. Since the shirt is 97.00 that will give you 3.00 change which you give 1.00 to your mother and 1.00 to your father and keep the other 1.00 to yourself. You now owe your mother and father both 49.00 which means 49.00 + 49.00 = 98.00 plus the 1.00 you kept for yourself gives you a total of 99.00. Where's the missing 1.00?
