English Exchange - the mailing list of English the international language.
Hello everyone, and a warm welcome to our newest members.

To everyone who hasn't done so yet, an invitation and reminder for you to introduce 
yourself to the list. Tell us about yourself, as much or as little as you 
want. You could tell us your name, where you're from, why you're studying English etc. 
etc. Just send an e-mail to [EMAIL PROTECTED]

This time I'd like to set you some puzzles - in English, of course.

These puzzles are of a kind known as lateral thinking, this means the answer isn't 
obvious and you need to think creatively to find it. I won't give the answers here, 
but ask anyone who thinks they know to email the English Exchange at [EMAIL PROTECTED]

1. A policeman was walking by a house when he heard an argument taking place. He 
stopped and listened. "Don't shoot me, John" screamed a voice, and then there was a 
gunshot. The policeman burst into the house to find a doctor, an engineer and a lawyer 
standing around a dead man. A smoking gun lay on the floor. Nobody said anything, but 
the policeman immediately arrested the lawyer. How did he know who had killed the man? 

2. Tim and Tom were born to the same mother, on the same day of the same year. But 
they are not twins. How can this be?

3. Mick was born in 1958 and died in 1989, aged 82. How can this be?

4. A man lives on the tenth floor of a building. Every day he takes the elevator to go 
down to the ground floor to go to work or to go shopping. When he returns he takes the 
elevator to the seventh floor and then walks three floors up the stairs to reach his 
apartment on the tenth floor. He hates walking so why does he do it?
