This is a thread for your Brain Teasers. 

 

Here's one:

   I ordered a pizza: Half Pepperoni, Half Sausage and Half Mushroom. How SHOULD it be made, if it can be made at all?

Could there be several solutions, based on ambiguity?

 

How about half and half (divide the circle of the pie down the middle), then the third ingredient across half of each of those  so you have a pizza that is 1/4 pepperoni only, 1/4 sausage only, 1/4 pepperoni and mushroom, and 1/4 sausage and mushroom.  

 

Back in my high school days as a Pizza Hut cook, that's how I would have made it.

 

Ambiguously, I think you could put any "one" of the "half" toppings across some "half" aligned with, or not aligned with, the first circle bisector, and be correct.

With ALL pepperoni, sausage and mushroom!

 

(Sorry Kevin, you pegged my preferred toppings. :$9_9)

That's the answer!

Jaime and Goldie come home to find Robert and Barbara dead on the floor.

 

It's too late to try to resuscitate.   

 

There is water everywhere on the floor.

 

The sash is open, and a strong breeze is moving the curtains.

 

How did Robert and Barbara die?

by chance, are Robert and Barbara goldfish?  :-k

 

Bingo!  Yes, Lee.  They are goldfish.  The curtains knocked the fishbowl onto the floor, putting water everywhere, and they died, out of their element.

 

You are up for the next Brain Teaser.

You are in a room that has three switches and a closed door. The switches control three light bulbs on the other side of the door. Once you open the door, you may never touch the switches again. How can you definitively tell which switch is connected to each of the light bulbs?

I don't have a followon, if  get this right but I cant resist a shot at it.

 

1. turn on switch 1 for several minutes.

2. turn on switch 2.

3. turn off switch 1.

4. open the door and feel which of the two lights that are off is warm - that's #1

    #2 os on, and

    #3 is off but cold.

 

Or just look through the window in the door to see which s on for each switch...  :D
