No, he isn't

Well, inorder to figure this one out, we would have to reasearch that certain river. Or we would have to know at least what it looks like! And so i voted...........boring and easy/hard.

I enjoyed it and got the correct answer, luckily, because there could be other options... like chartering a helicopter to fly across!

I thought it was something on a board game or something like that

is he blind?

I thought he rode a ship, not a boat...

it was so easy but fun! I was wondering if the answer would be "the river was frozen so he walked across"!

I got it right. I didn't know that there are numerous bridges on the River Thames, but then again I don't live anywhere near there.

Easiest teaser I've ever done, and as for the people that are saying 'well I don't live there' haven't you heard of the London bridge?
Jan 06, 2011

Very easy... but I'm worried if the man was wondering how to cross a river... How do you cross any river? Surely he could see a bridge

I give it an all around Meh!

I guess anything can pass as a boat, ship or teaser.

Why didn't he think of the boat earlier? He knew he couldn't swim. Its a little weak, but I still enjoyed this teaser...
Nov 04, 2011

i was right but for a different reason it didnt say ANYTHING about he couldnt cross a bridge (all of this is making my brain hurt ops

Kurt was actually a bird and he remembered that he could fly. Or there was a draught and he was able to walk across because the water level was so low. Or.........
