+2 votes

A criminal is brought into a prison for major crimes. The warden informs him that he will be shot in the middle of the prison by 20 of his men. The prisoner is fine with that but he asks for some conditions "All of your men must stand 20 feet away from me and I must be able to select where each of them stands. If I survive, I get to leave."

The warden thinks about it and knows that all of his men will still have an open shot at the criminal, so he agrees.

The next day immediately after the firing squad is positioned the criminal walks out untouched. How did he do it?

He places himself in the centre and arranges every shooter at diagonally opposite to another shooter. thus ten such pairs are formed. When the prisoner is aimed for the shot the, opposite shooters themselves become the target of each other and prisoner gets freed.

The criminal set himself at the Center of a circle of 20 Warden's men by making them stand 20 feet away from him. He made all of the warden's men stand directly across from each other. So that none of them could fire at the criminal because they would fire at another shooter. So the criminal walks out untouched, since he was alive.

A science teacher told his after school class, "Whoever can get this egg into this smaller glass bottle will win no homework for a week! The rules are: the egg has to go into the bottle in one piece, and you can't break the bottle. You can also use anything in the science lab. So, do we have any volunteers?"

A boy raised his hand and the teacher pointed at him. The boy took the egg and looked around the science lab for the things he could use. He saw some writing paper, a pack of matches, some vinegar, a sink, and the glass bottle. By the end of the after school class, the boy had gotten the egg into the smaller bottle.
