More ways to get Braingle...

Mile Drive

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.

Johny, Jack and Jose are sitting in a bar on a cold winter night. Jose starts getting a little braggadocious and states that he has ten thousand dollars that says he can hit a golf ball a mile. Jose clarifies that he means a regulation golf ball and driver off of a tee, and Johny and Jack smile and say they'll take that bet.

Jose got his drinking money out of them for the next month. How did he do it?



Answer

In the dead of winter, Lake Michigan is completely frozen over. Jose teed up the ball on the banks of the lake and hit a perfect drive that would under normal circumstances go 300 to 400 yards. But with almost zero friction of the ice, the ball rolled completely out of sight.

Quick Tip: My daddy always told me, "No matter how bizarre the bet may seem, if a man is willing to bet his money that he can do something, he probably can!"
