# Fun Brain Teasers to Make You Think, Part Two

These are the answers to part one of Fun Brain Teasers to Make You Think. Don’t cheat by reading these first. If you do, it would indicate that you think emotionally all the time and have difficulty thinking logically at all.

Do the questions first. This is a really fun exercise!

Here are the answers:

1. How far into the woods can a dog run?

It can run halfway into the woods. After that, it is running out of the woods rather than into it.

2. Our calendar is divided into 12 months. Some of those months have 31 days and some have 30. How many months have 28 days?

Twelve. The months that have 30 or 31 days obviously have at least 28 days. That means that there is a 28th of January, February, March, and so forth.

3. What was the name of the president of the United States in 1988?

Donald J. Trump. The president’s name didn’t change and was the same in 1988 as it is today. (The question didn’t ask who was serving as president in 1988, it asked what the president’s name was in 1988.)

4. How many birthdays does the average American man have?

One. Everyone has only one day of birth or birthday. However, they can celebrate that day of birth many times in their lifetime.

5. Farmer Jones had 15 chickens. All but six of them died. How many chickens did he have left?

He had six left. If you missed this one, reread the question carefully.

6. If your doctor gave you three pills and told you to take one every half-hour, how long would the pills last?

One hour. If you take one now and another a half-hour from now, and the third pill a half-hour later, you’d be taking the third pill an hour from the first.

7. Why can’t a man in Montana marry his widow’s sister?

Because the man would have to be dead in order to have a widow. Dead people can’t marry anyone.

8. True or false: Water boils at 150 degrees, Celcius.

True. Water boils at 100 C. However, it also boils at 150 C, or any temperature hotter than 100 C.

9. Why is it against the law for a Republican, living in Montana, to be buried in any of the Northeastern states in the US?

It isn’t legal to bury a living person.

10. Do they have a Fourth of July in England?

Absolutely. They use the same calendar that we use. They don’t celebrate it, but they do have a fourth of July.

11. A race car driver is in a bad accident and must be operated on. They are rushed to the hospital, where only one surgeon is on duty, the race car driver’s father. It is against the law for a father at that hospital to operate on his son. Yet the surgeon legally operates on the race car driver. How is this possible?

It is illegal for him to operate on his son, so the race car driver must be his daughter.

12. You are led into a bathroom that has a bathtub full of water. You are given a tablespoon, a cup, and a bucket and are told to get the water out of the tub the easiest, fastest, and the most efficient way you can. What would you do?

Since the question asks what you would do, there is no incorrect answer. However, the easiest, fastest, and the most efficient way for you to get the water out of the tub would probably be to pull the plug or open the drain.

1. I protest on Qns 11!! That is discrimination!! Lol. Thought it’s illogical for such a rule… haha :p

Ok, not going to argue on getting wrong, had many wrong answers anyway…

I had great fun with these questions!!

• What makes it even more interesting is that some hospitals do have rules like that. They make the assumption that a doctor who operates on a family member will be so wrapped up in the case that they will or at least might make mistakes.

2. I need more of these for my brain! #3 and 10 were interesting. I was like Duh after I saw the answers. Over-thinker here. Great questions Rex.

• Perhaps I will do more of these in the coming days. lol

3. I got five.. I knew they were teasers,, I just couldn’t get some of them. Good one doc. Norman is good at these..hopefully he will stop in.

• Questions like these can be a challenge at times, but it is in a fun way. You’re right, Norman might enjoy these.

• They are indeed. Yes he will like them when he eventually catches up. Hes off globe trotting right now. lol Cant wait for those pictures.

• That should be worth at least a few dozen articles, don’t you think?

4. nice post thank you very much

5. Interactive, fun and useful for exercising your brain post.

• I like it when questions are like that. They really aren’t hard to answer, but sometimes we get caught trying to answer something besides the question. :))

6. I really enjoyed this brain teaser since I had to pay attention to the questions before answering them.

• That is good. This is something we should all do all the time, myself included, but sometimes it is really easy to try to answer before we know what the question actually is.

• That is true since our brains like to hone in now what were are taught and not see the whole side of the world.

7. Humorous and even unexpected at times! Oh my crusty brain!!!!! ?

• Questions like these are great for shaking off the ‘brain dust’. LOL

8. Interesting things to learn about. Great one!
