    More interesting questions?

    1. Where can anybody but you sit?

    2. Why would a cleaning person prefer to wash a mirror than a window of the same size, assuming both are easily accessible?

    3. Your bed and a light switch are five meters apart. Without using any object or mechanical device - no pole, no remote switch - how can you turn off the light and get into bed before the room gets dark?

    4. Rusty has a cottage in the mountains where the temperature is freezing. Rusty's eyes move from the single match he has in his hand to a candle, an oil lamp and a fireplace with kindling - all ready to be lit. Which does he light first?

    5. What common mechanized transports in New York (120 000 of them) carry three times as many passengers daily as all the city's subways, buses, cars and taxi's combined?

    6. What is cowhide chiefly used for?

    7. Can you re-arrange these letters into one long word: donornoegwl?
    Regards,
