    If you've seen this one before, please refrain from answering so someone else can have a shot.

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    1. A murderer is condemned to death. He has to choose between three
    rooms. The first is full of raging fires, the second is full of
    assassins with loaded guns, and the third is full of lions that
    haven't eaten in 3 years.

    Which room is safest for him?

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    2. A woman shoots her husband. Then she holds him under water for
    over 5 minutes. Finally, she hangs him. But 5 minutes later, they both go
    out together and enjoy a wonderful dinner together.

    How can this be?

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    3. What is black when you buy it, red when you use it, and gray when
    you throw it away?

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    4. Can you name three consecutive days without using the words
    Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, or Sunday?

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    5. This is an unusual paragraph. I'm curious how quickly you can
    find out what is so unusual about it. It looks so plain you would think
    nothing was wrong with it. In fact, nothing is wrong with it! It is
    unusual though. Study it, and think about it, but you still may not
    find anything odd. But if you work at it a bit, you might find out. Try
    to do so without any coaching!

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    1. The room with the Lions...they're all dead from not eating for 3 years.
    2. She took a picture of him, exposed the film underwater and then hung it up to expose.
    3. Charcoal
    4. Yesterday, Today, Tomorrow
    5. This one is no fair, because I've seen it before...the letter 'e' isn't in it once.

    We used to do these things all the time in seminar class. I love em!

    I had the same answers as ltrey. #5 I had seen before, but the others are pretty much common sense.. It was fun though..

    I thought the rule was A,E,I,O,U...and sometimes Y. If that is the case, you are incorrect, BBQ! :razz:

    Sorry, I was making fun of Cojomay and forgot to quote it...and now I am getting ripped on.

    Is #5 that every word has a vowel in it?
    I wasn't ripping on ya Bdub. That's what the smiley is for.

    But you are correct, it should've been directed at Cojomay.

    The omission of the "quotes" led me astray.
