    You want a thought puzzle....

    I like stuff like this so Ill post a few here and answers later, to get us away from the normal religious/govt debates..

    You are in a room with no windows. Theres a door on one side. You can not see under the door or hear anything thru the door. THere are 3 light switches next to the door. In the room thru the door are 3 lights. Each switch goes to just one light. All lights in the other room are off. To "escape with your life" or whatever (), you must turn the switches on or off, open the door, and tell what light switches go with what light. Once you open the door and see the lights, you can not touch the switches.

    (if you already know this, dont give the answer right away so others can try)

    most people dont get these because they think too much. Try to imangine yourself in that position and what youd do.

    Can I only open the door once and after I have opened the door I can never again touch the switches?

    Correct..you do whatever you want to the switches while the door has not been open. Once you open the door, you cant touch the switches.

    answer below..





















    Turn on one of the light switches for like 5 mins. Then turn it off. Turn on one switch and go into the room. The really hot light goes with the switch that was turned on for 5 mins. The light that is on is the switch that you flipped and the one that is off is the switch you didnt touch.

    surely ya just flip all the switches if you know that all the lights are off. To turn the lights on, all the switches need to be opposite .....
