There is a public swimming pool whose dimensions are 1,020 feet by 980 feet by 7 feet. This pool will hold 3,890 gallons of water. Someone goes into the swimming pool and goes all the way to the bottom of it. He/She comes back to the top of the pool not wet. There is no special equipment used to keep the person dry in any way or to dry the person in any way, other than the sun and wind of course.

This was very easy. Maybe if you concealed the fact that he/she didn't come up wet, then it might be harder. Did you mean for this to be so easy?

Easy. And never mind that a swimming pool as long and wide as 3 football fields that's 7 feet deep might hold a bit more than 4,000 gallons...

u should have said, "the man went to the bottom of the pool without getting wet because the pool was empty. How did he get to the bottom without getting wet?" cause that would of been harder then this teaser

Mogmatt, I mean no offence at all when I say this: You are a stupid, mean, selfish, nah, just kidding... lol that always gets my brother. anyway, all of these teasers have a kind of why, or how question, so i just sorta put it in, y'know make the question around the teaser, so it's easy, but it's fun.

THE QUESTION WOULD HAVE BEEN BETTER IF IT WAS "A DIVER DIVED IN A SWIMMING POOL AND CAME OUT DRY WEARING ONLY HIS TRUNKS

well, if you think it is too easy/boring, stay out of the easiest teasers section! don't put mean comments unless the teaser deserves it. and don't insult the author, insult the teaser.

PATYMANY, that would not work, because then that person would DIE. And, gee, you almost fooled me. :-) I was going to say the pool was filled with mercury. ;-)

It was okay but it would have been better if you didn't have the hint

The detail I think is left out is this ...

How is it that a swimming pool of almost 7 million cubic feet holds less than 4,000 gallons of water ?

I don't think the teaser is too easy, I just think it belongs in the trick category.
