Alien TortureScience brain teasers require understanding of the physical or biological world and the laws that govern it.
Aliens have placed you in a tub of hot water. The source of heat has been turned off, but if you do not act quickly you will lose consciousness and die from the heat. Within your reach are numerous large bags of sugar, a huge plastic statue of a religious figure, a paper fan, and a jar of peanut butter. Your captors will not allow you to leave the hot tub for five minutes. What is your best strategy for survival?
AnswerReach for the sugar bags. Tear them open and dump the sugar into the water since energy is used in the dissolving process. Additionally, if the statue is large, you can place it in the tub and displace some of the water, providing you with some relief. You may also be able to climb on the statue to get some relief.
