Synopses & Reviews

How can you tie a knot in a napkin by holding one end in each hand without letting go of it? Impossible, you say (or your friends will say, if you bet them). But: Cross your arms and hold a tip of the napkin in each hand. When you uncross your arms, the knot will be formed!
Now try this riddle: I climbed up a cherry tree, where I found cherries. I did not pick cherries, nor did I leave cherries. How can you explain this? Answer: I climbed up a cherry tree with two cherries in my hand. I picked only one. I left the other one on the tree. I did not "pick cherries," because I "picked a cherry."
Take this dare: My bird can fly faster than any supersonic plane. Here's how: If you put my bird inside any plane and make it fly in the same direction as the plane, it will go faster than the plane.
Break down the wording and break through the riddle! My bird can fly faster than any supersonic plane. How? Put my bird inside any plane, make it fly in the same direction, and it will go faster than the plane. The name Mensa speaks for itself. This is for the ultimate brainiac, or those who enjoy intensive mental workouts.”—Chicago Tribune.
