I was thinking about the light switches. If you have 3 switches downstairs, have a time delay of 5 minutes between each switch. Switch 1, leave on 5 minutes, then shut off. Switch 2 on 5 minutes then shut off. Switch 3 on 5 minutes then off. Go upstairs and touch the bulb. If the bulb is cold. Then switch 1 would be the switch. If the bulb is warm then switch 2 would be the correct switch. If the bulb is hot, then switch 3 would be the correct switch.

Question: Your friend tells you about a story he once tried to impress a young lady with, but instead got a slap in the face. He wants you to attempt to see the flaw: It was a hot and windless day, in our bunker, when suddenly one of ours yelled: "Enemy!" We opened fire on them, leaving one hundred of them dead before they retreated. I was checking a dead captain's glasses when the shout came that they were incoming again, and the CO ordered us to open up on them with our mortars, when I yelled: "Cease fire! They're Americans!" Later, an American colonel thanked me for my work after I said that I saw their flag, waving back and forth in the wind. What is wrong with this story?
