Einsteins riddle
« on: May 22, 2008, 11:04:22 PM »

Einstein made this riddle, and said that 98% of the people could not solve it. Can you?

There are five houses in a row, each one a different color
In each house there lives a person of a different national
Each homeowner drinks a different beverage, smokes a different cigar, and raises a different pet.
No two homeowners drink the same thing, smoke the same cigar, or raise the same pet

Hints:
1.The Brit lives in a red house.
2.The Swede keeps dogs.
3.The Dane Drinks tea.
4.The green house is directly on the left of the white house.
5.The owner of the green house drinks cofee.
6.The person who smokes Pall Mall raises birds.
7.The person in the yellow house smokes Dunhill.
8.The person in the center house drinks milk.
9.The Norweigan person lives in the first house.
10.The man who smokes Blends lives next to the person who has cats.
11.The man who keeps horses lives next to the person who smokes Dunhill.
12.The man who smokes Blue Master drinks beer.
13.The German smokes Prince.
14.The Norweigan lives next to the blue house
15.The man who smokes Blends has a neighbor who drinks water.

THE QUESTION: WHO OWNS THE FISH
If you cant find the answer PM me.
Are you in the 2% of the world who can solve it?
(it helps if you draw a picture)

That's more of a kind of prejudice thing.  It appears you have to know what certain nationalities drink, smoke, and what pets they have.

A little stupid if you ask me.

nope, there's no prejudice, tricks, or anything like that. Just logic.

Errgh, I've done these before.  They take ages, and I don't wanna be a Guan and spend half an hour for useless bragging rights.  (:P)
