# Moving to a new house?

23 views

A man was moving to a new house. He rented a moving truck, put all his belongings in it, and drove to his new place. He entered the garage with the truck and took all his belongings out of the truck. When he tried to exit the garage with the truck, he couldn’t. Why?

posted Oct 9

The empty truck was just slightly taller than the garage door. When it was packed with items, the truck’s height got lower, so the man could enter the garage. Once the items were unpacked, the truck was once again taller than door, so it couldn’t get out.

Seven detectives were trying to solve a murder case. One detective had been on the police force for twenty years. The other six, Quinn, Ralph, Steve, Ted, Uriah, and Victor, were new to the police force. They were trying to solve the case based on six particulars:

1. The street the murderer lived on.
2. The murderer's gender.
3. The murderer's height.
4. The murderer's occupation.
5. The murderer's age.
6. The genre of music the murderer preferred.

Quinn arrested a man who lived on Austin Avenue, was 5'0", a teacher, in his 20's, and preferred rock and roll.
Ralph arrested a woman who lived on Guildford Way, was 5'6", a doctor, in her 30's, and preferred classical.
Steve arrested a man who lived on Mariner Way, was 5'11", a doctor, in his 20's, and preferred country.

Victor arrested a woman who lived on Shaughnessy Street, was 6'4", a teacher, in her 50's, and preferred jazz.

The seventh detective, the one who had been a detective for twenty years, arrested the real murderer. He then said to the other six, "I see you have arrested two of the three shortest men and one of the two tallest women in town. But they are all innocent, and so are the other three. Here are two facts:
1. Each of you six are correct in the same number of particulars as anyone else.
2. Exactly one of each kind of particular is correct."
