Each of these
stories may seem impossible at first. Can you
figure out the solution?
1. A man and
his son were on a tour of an atomic power plant.
In the control room, the boy asked if he could
see the controls for the reactor core. The head
physicist said yes, and explained how the controls
worked. After the boy left, the head physicist
turned to an assistant and said, "That was
my son." How could that be?
2. Three kids from Bristol went
for a walk. About a mile into the walk, they came
to a deep, wide river. There was no bridge. They
didnt have a boat or raft, or any materials
to make one. None of them could swim. How did
they get across?
3. Lisa walked out the back door
of the farmhouse on a Thursday afternoon and found
a mans pipe, a scarf and three lumps of
coal lying on the wet grass near the barn. The
nearest neighbours lived a mile away, and no-one
had visited that day. Where did the objects come
4. A true story: a white horse
jumped over a castle and landed on a bishop, who
immediately disappeared from the landscape. Where
did this take place?
