The Magnificent JumpTrick brain teasers appear difficult at first, but they have a trick that makes them really easy.
Joey and Carl were sitting down since they had nothing to do. Carl told Joey that he could make a magnificent jump. Carl then set up three chairs. When Joey saw that Carl had set the chairs up, Joey told Carl that he couldn't do it. Carl then said, "Let me take off my shoes before I jump over them". Before Carl jumped, Joey made a bet that Carl couldn't make the magnificent jump. Carl did not make it over the chairs, but still won the bet. Why?
AnswerCarl said, "Let me take off my shoes before I jump over THEM". Therefore, the magnificent jump was jumping over his shoes.
