Cube Root

Situation 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.

Why did a man put two cubes in a glass of water? The cubes are not ice cubes or sugar cubes and no drink or refreshment is involved.


Hint

Dropping the cubes in the water could save him a lot of money.

Does that mean fair dice will float? Or will they spin while they sink? I've never gambled so I wouldn't know.

huh? I thought that that there was no drink of refreshment involved, so what do the dice "Float to the bottom of the Glass", (surely sink) in. Even water is a drink or refreshment.

I assumed it was effervescent cubes for cleaning dentures!

This was a nice situation teaser. So many either have numerous possible answers or are so easy that I don't call them a teaser. They're just a little story to read.
Thanks for bringing the quality up.

@Donald, craps is a common casino game played with two dice. Google it.

@Mad-ade et al, if there is no intention to consume the water, then it is not a drink or refreshment.
