Who here is good at riddles? Without cheating, see if you can solve this one! I will be expecting answers soon.... :twisted:

A man walks into a bar and asks for a drink of water. The bartender says "BANG", and the guy who asked for a drink of water thanks him and leaves. What happened?

He had hickups...

Here is another classic:

There are three switches downstairs. Each corresponds to one of the three light bulbs in the attic. You can turn the switches on and off and leave them in any position.
How would you identify which switch corresponds to which light bulb, if you are only allowed one trip upstairs?

Depends on the position of each switch to start.

I actually had to do something like this in my days as a mechanic.

The solution:
Spoiler:
Turn switch 1 on
Turn switch 2 off
Turn switch 3 on, wait a minute, then turn it off again.

The lightbulb that's on is controlled by switch 1.
The lightbulb that's off and cool is controlled by switch 2.
The lightbulb that's off and warm is controlled by switch 3.

Call my wife from the attic and have her flip switches until we figured it out.

Then LABEL the darn things, like the previous home owner should have done! :)

That's a cool answer (no pun intended) but now bulbs don't get hot.

Our LED bulbs get hot...Warm, at least.

I would just turn them all on and carry a flashlight. :P

Six is three,
three is five,
five is four,
and four is magic.
Why is four magic?
