1. ## Brain teasers?

Know any good ones?

If you stop time, who turns it back on?

Swiss cheese has holes.
The more swiss cheese you have, the more holes you have.
Therefore, the more swiss cheese you have, the less swiss cheese you have.

Silly. As long as x > y (cheese mass greater than holes - aka no mass), increasing x proportionally to y will always yeild a greater number than the prior value.

Ok, here is a brain teaser: If a man rides into town on Thursday, stays in town 3 days, and leaves on Tuesday, what color is his hair?

3. If Pinocchio tells you he's lying, will his nose grow?

he will become jello, because he traveled forth in time. See Steins;Gate for further explanation

You are in a cabin and it is pitch black. You have one match on you. Which do you light first, the newspaper, the lamp, the candle or the fire?

16. the "9 dots" puzzle was always a favorite of mine (maybe because i actually figured it out the first time i saw it without having to be given any hints)

Connect the 9 dots using 4 straight lines without lifting your pencil off the paper

obviously, it's meant to be printed out, hence the "pencil" part, but you get the idea.

18. If you divide by zero, let's say 4/0, would it then be 4 because nothing got shared and it would be whole, or nothing because there was no one there to get it?

4 items divided among 0 people results in 0 items per person.
4 people given 0 items results in 0 people per item.
