Man in Forest
|Fun:|| (2.43) |
|Difficulty:|| (0.65) |
There is a man in the forest and he has only one match (and the matchbox). He has with him an oil lamp (with oil in it), a gas lamp (with gas in it), and a fireplace full of kindling which is dry enough to burn. Night draws closer and he is afraid of the dark. Which one does he light first?

|Slightly modified, my Scout troop uses this teaser as a test when each Scout gets to a certain point in his advancement. It's amazing how few scouts get the right answer.|
