How to we keep mentally and intellectually fit in a pandemic in winter and most likely in the middle of government imposed lock downs? Some of us are avid readers and some are not. Some have signed up to study online but that doesn't work for everyone. Here are 3 quick mental stretch exercises that will keep you occupied for awhile and if you enjoy them I can give you 3 more.

1. A bad guy is playing Russian roulette with a six-shooter revolver. He puts in one bullet, spins the chambers and fires at you, but no bullet comes out. He gives you the choice of whether or not he should spin the chambers again before firing a second time. Should he spin again?

2. You're at a fork in the road in which one direction leads to the City of Lies (where everyone always lies) and the other to the City of Truth (where everyone always tells the truth). There's a person at the fork who lives in one of the cities, but you're not sure which one. What question could you ask the person to find out which road leads to the City of Truth?

  • Whatever they reply will be the right answer.
  • Ask him "Did Joe Biden win the 2020 election?"
  • Answers to any of these questions will not reveal anything about which road to take, only about the man.

3. I borrow $50 from my uncle and $50 from my aunt - that's $100. I then buy a shirt for $97 giving me $3 change. I give $1 back to my uncle and $1 back to my aunt but I still owe each of them $49. That's $98 plus the $1 I kept for myself. That adds up to $99. Where did the other $1 go?

To the uncle?

  • You spent it on the lap dance you had at The Bottoms Up Club, remember? No? But...oops...shhhhhh!!!!
  • I'd Have to think harder
  • This is a simple mathematical trick.

4. Here are the answers in random order - no peeking!

This is a puzzle that also works for a Superbowl hotel room where 3 guys have booked online at the last minute for $300 or $100 each. When they get to the room they find it is in bad shape and one of them goes to the front desk to complain. The manager appoligises and gives the guy $50 in 5 @ $10 bills as a discount. On the way back to the room the guy decides to tell his buddies they each got $10 off and keep the $20 for himself. So they each paid $90 or $270 in total plus the $20 the one guy kept - that's $290. There is $10 missing. Who got it? I have no idea how this works and am trying to figure out how to make money from it.

Which direction do you live?" Someone from the City of Lies will lie and point to the City of Truth; someone from the City of Truth would tell the truth and also point to the City of Truth.

Yes. Before he spins, there's a one in six chance of a bullet being fired. After he spins, one of those chances has been taken away, leaving a one in five chance and making it more likely a bullet will be fired. Best to spin again.
