Question: A man is walking through the park one day and sees a group of four boys standing in a circle. A smaller boy is holding a large stick and hands it to a larger boy saying "I couldn't do it, your turn."
The larger boy swings the stick twice and the other two boys go to the ground. The smaller boy says "I'll get 'em next time." The man walks away smiling.
What just happened?
Answer: The boys were at a birthday party hitting a pinata.
Question: A mother is 21 years older than her child. In 6 years the mother will be 5 times older than her baby.
Where is the father?
Answer: He is with the mother.
If you do the math: (baby's age) + 21 + 6 = 5 * (baby's age + 6)
(baby's age) + 27 = 30 + 5 * (baby's age)
-3 = 4 * (baby's age)
-3/4 = baby's age
The baby will be born in 9 months.
Question: There is a party of 100 high-powered politicians. All of them are either honest or liars. You walk in knowing two things:
- At least one of them is honest.
- If you take any two politicians, at least one of them is a liar.
From this information, can you know how many are liars and how many are honest?
Answer: Yes, from the information you know 1 is honest and 99 are liars.
One of them is honest satisfying the first piece of information. Then if you take the honest man and any other politician, the other politician must be a liar to satisfy the second piece of information, 'If you take any two politicians, at least one of them is a liar.' So 99 are liars.
