Bowling ballSituation puzzles (sometimes called lateral thinking puzzles) are ones where you need to ask lots of yes or no questions to figure out what happened in the situation. These are good puzzles for groups where one person knows the puzzle and answers the questions.
A man lets go of a bowling ball. A short while later, he is rushed to the hospital. What happened?
AnswerA physics professor is demonstrating conservation of energy by suspending a bowling ball from a piece of rope. He pulls the ball back until it`s right in front of his nose, then lets go. It is supposed to swing away from him, then back at him, stopping just in front of his nose. Unfortunately, he gave the ball a slight push, resulting in the ball crashing into his nose upon its return.
