A simple game, nothing more, nothing less. Answer the questions, post in a spoiler, compare your answers to the correct ones, edit in your score. Cheating by looking at the answers prematurely or by Googling the questions is frowned upon. You are only cheating yourself.


Questions:

1. A man walks into a bar and asks for a glass of water. The barman pulls out a gun and points it at the man. The man says "Thank you." and walks out of the bar. Why?

2. Two boxers (not kickboxing) fight in a match scheduled for 12 rounds. The match ends after 6, one boxer knocking the other out. Yet no man throws a punch. How is this possible?

3. In a cellar there are 3 light switches, all in the Off position. Each switch controls a corresponding light bulb upstairs. You can move any of the switches but you may only go upstairs and inspect the light bulbs once. How can you determine the switch for each bulb with one inspection?

4. A landscape gardener is instructed to plant 4 special trees so that each one is an equal distance from any of the others. How do you arrange the trees?


Answers:

Spoiler:
1. Who asks for water in a bar? Someone who has hiccups. The bartender scared the man by pulling a gun on him, scaring the hiccups away.

2. No man threw a punch. It could have been a women's boxing match.

3. Turning a light bulb on does two things, obviously provides light but also provides heat. Leaving a switch on for 5 minutes or so then turning it off will leave the bulb hot. All one must do then is turn one of the other two switches on and go upstairs. Inspecting the light bulbs give the result; The hot but off light bulb is the switch turned on first, the lit light bulb is the switch turned on second and the cold and off light bulb is the untouched switch.

4. The trees are placed on a hill, three around the base, making a equilateral triangle the fourth being place atop the hill making a pyramid with equal distances between all the trees.


And now, an entertaining comic:
