Tip of the TowerSituation 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.
On my way home from soccer practice, my dad decided to do something daring. He wove through a construction site (legally) and arrived at an old radio station he used to work at. He took my hand and said, "Emily, there's something I've always wanted to do. Come with me."
I followed him to the station's massive radio tower a little ways away from the station. He said, "We're going to touch the top of the tower." I knew it was entirely possible, so my dad and I touched the very top of the radio tower.
No, I can't fly. There were no planes involved, or lifts, or really any aid in taking us to the top. Also, let it be known that I can't climb more than two feet off the ground without falling. So, how did we do it?
HintWhat were we doing before we got to the radio station?
AnswerThe old radio station had been vacant for years and was going to be torn down. The radio tower had just been demolished, and it was lying on its side.
That was the reason the construction site was up.
