    Icon3 Daily Brain Teasers #4

    1) An old man had been browsing for some time. He finally walked up to the girl behind the counter and handed her a book. She looked at the tag on the inside cover and said, "That's £4.50 please." The man handed her the money and promptly walked away without the book. The girl saw him leave empty-handed but she didn't call out to him in any way. Why?

    2) Jenny dropped an earring in her coffee yet the earring didn't get wet. How did this happen?

    3)What is special about the following sequence of numbers?
    8 5 4 9 1 7 6 10 3 2 0

    4) One fine day in the middle of the night
    Two dead men got up to fight
    Back to back they faced each other
    Drew their swords and shot each other!
    What is wrong with this?

    5) AJ, Celeste, Juan, Kara, Lily, and Randy all live on Redwood Avenue. Each of their house numbers has three digits, but the only digits in their house numbers are 2, 3, 5, and 6. The same digit may appear in one address more than once.
    AJ’s house number is Juan’s house number doubled.
    Juan lives next to Lily and right across from Randy.
    Randy’s number is the lowest on the street.
    Celeste’s number is a higher number than AJ’s but has the same three digits as his. They both have the same digit in the hundreds place.
    Kara’s house number is the reverse of Juan’s.
    What is each person’s street address?

    6) One man shows another the portrait of a gentleman and tells him: I have neither brothers nor sisters, but this man's father is the son of my father. Who is the man in the painting?
    You caught me off guard now I'm runnin' and screamin'. I feel like a hero and you are my hero*ne. And I feel a weakness comin' on never felt so good to be so wrong. Had my heart on lockdown!

    1. His book was overdue at the library, he isn't in a book store

    2. Coffee as in coffee grounds although technically that's rarely correct since most coffee grounds are wet o.o or it is ground coffee, which would technically be correct.

    3. Fibonacci numbers? idk

    4. You don't shoot people with swords lol, and you don't face each other when you're back to back

    5. I'm not doing this one <.<

    6. He's painting his son
