you do ask alot questions to figure this one out, i learned it over the summer at work, and it took us all day asking my boss questions on our breaks to figure it out, but i think its a good one.


was he married?

doesnt it go, like, the guy was a sailor and he and his crew got shipwrecked and the captain served them "albatross soup" and he realized it didnt taste like that on the island and he realized he ate his shipmates???

If that was the case though... where does being blind come into play?

this is a good riddle:



Shown above are 4 men buried up to their necks in the ground. They cannot move so can only look forward. Between A and B is a brick wall which cannot be seen through. They all know that between them they are wearing 4 hats, 2 x black and 2 x white, but they do not know what colour they are wearing. In order to avoid being shot one of them must call out to the executioner the colour of their hat. If they get it wrong, everyone will be shot. They are not allowed to talk to each other and have 10 minutes to fathom it out.

After 1 minute, one of them calls out.

Question: Which one of them calls out?

Question: Why is he 100% certain of the colour of his hat?

This is not a trick question. There are no outside influences nor other ways of communicating. They cannot move and are buried in a straight line. So A & B can only see their respective sides of the wall, C can see B, and D can see B & C

D calls out he's wearing white because he can see that B is wearing a white hat. C calls out black having heard D say he's wearing white and seeing B is wearing white. B calls out white having heard he's wearing white from D. A calls out black to finish it.

Very Happy Nope Very Happy If D saw B was wearing white, he still doesnt know what A is wearing, so A could be wearing white. And ONLY ONE MAN says the color of his hat.

The obvious choice would be D.........but its not

The answer is C
B and C would assume that if they had the same color that D would call out the other color, but because he didnt, C knows that he has a different color than B, so he chooses black knowing that B has white
