John was watching television. Just after the midnight news there was a weather forecast: "It is raining now and will rain for the next two days. However, in 72 hours it will be bright and sunny."

"Wrong again," snorted John. He was correct, but how did he know?


Answer

In 72 hours it would be midnight again, so it could not be bright and sunny.

fooled me, i was thinking that, because it was midnight, there would be an extra day involved or something.

nice one, however on the north or south pole, there is 6 months on and 6 months off of alternating sunlight. therefore,
your solution to the teaser would only apply in the other regions of the planet.
