I got a couple

1. A boat has a ladder going into the water, and each step is a foot apart. As of now, there are two steps under water. When the tide comes in and the water rises 3 feet, how many steps are gonna be in the water?

2. A plane crashes in the border of Indiana and Illinois. Many were lost, but miraculously a lot of the passengers survived. So, where are you gonna burry them, in Illinois or in Indiana?

answers:
1. 2 -- the boat rises with the water
2. no where, they survived

But if I answer right now...everyone will know the answers!
1. The same 2 will be under water, that's all.
2. You don't bury survivors.

Hehe.. I got a sheet last year with all of these questions on it, and had fun trying to figure them out.

I never thought that you would ever be the one to let me down. I guess that just goes to show how wrong I always am.

Those were fun. How about this test?
MIND TEASERS
This test does not measure your intelligence, your fluency with words, and certainly not your mathematical ability. It will, however, give you some gauge of your mental flexibility and creativity. In the many years since the test was developed, few people have been found who could solve more than half of the 25 puzzles on the first try. Many reported getting answers long after the test had been put aside; in the middle of the night and at unexpected moments when their minds were relaxed. A small percentage of people complete the test after several days. Take this as your personal challenge. Good luck!!!!!
Instructions: Each question below contains the initials of words that will make it a correct phrase. Find the missing words.
For example: 12 M. in a Y. Answer: 12 Months in a Year
NO. PUZZLE
1 6 F. in a F.
2 A B and his F. T.
3 3 F. in a Y.
4 64 S. on a C.
5 29 D. in F. in a L. Y.
6 a P. is W. a 1000 W.
7 11 P. on a F. T.
8 57 H V.
9 1 W. on a U.
10 24 H. in a D.
11 4 Q. in a G.
12 3 B. M. (S.H.T.R.)
13 8 S. on a S. S.
14 200 D. for P. G. in M.
15 90 D. in a R. A.
16 18 H. on a G. C.
17 32 D. F. at which W.F.
18 13 S. on the A. F.
19 88 P. K.
20 9 P. in the S.S.
21 54 C. in the D. (with the J.)
22 12 S. of the Z.
23 1001 A. N.
24 7 W. of the W.
