Okay then. And Cheese gets the next riddle. She got the closest.

Okay, so the way you figure this out is you rule out possibilities. For the person in back to stand up, he would need to see two red hats in front of him, in which case he would have stood up immediately. However, since this didn't happen, the person in the middle knows that there are two possibilities: he either has a red hat or a black hat. If the person in front was wearing a red hat, then he would have known for sure that he was wearing a black hat, and he would have stood up in 15-30 seconds. Because neither of these happened, the person in front knows that he has to have a black hat on (or the person in the middle would have stood up). So after waiting a minute to make sure the person in the middle wouldn't stand up, he gets up and declares that he is wearing a black hat.

That's the puzzle I give people who are irritating me so that they have something to think about for a while to keep them quiet.  :tongue:

Edit: Oops, changed the color of the other hats from red to white. Fix'd

This puzzle has a flaw in it.  Because there are three black hats. If the person saw the two people in front had black hats on, he wouldn't know if he'd a red or a black hat on.  The person in the middle might assume he has a different color and would see the person in the front had a black hat and would say he has a red. When he does not.   Therefore if everyone has a black hat, this puzzle has no real answer.

It assumes that everybody in the puzzle is smart enough to think about it logically, and it's unfair because only the guy in front had a chance to figure it out. But they do that so there is a singular answer, because there is only one way for it to actually be correct.

I still don't think the puzzle works when they all wear black hats.

Oh sorry. I'll post it when I get home. I have a puzzle, but I need to draw a picture to illustrate it.

Alright, so you're in a house. Upstairs is a light bulb. Downstairs are three light switches.  You cannot see the light from downstairs, and you can only go upstairs once.   You need to figure out which switch turns on the light bulb.
REMEMBER: the puzzle is  NOT to determine WHICH switch, but HOW you would figure it out in that situation.
 If you guess A, B, or C, you will be incorrect.  They are only labeled to to help you from getting confused.

Answer: None because the Lightbulb doesn't turn on the Switch, the Switches turns on the Lightbulb.

Dang i thought it was a trick riddle.

answer: You flip on the A switch and leave B and C off. leave A switch on for a set time say 15mins. then flip it off then flip switch B on for 15 mins leaveing switchs A and C off. Then Flip Switch B off and Flip Switch C on for 15mins leaving switchs A and B off after 15mins are up flip Switch C off then go upstairs and check how Warm the lightbulb is and based on how warm it is will determine which switch turns it on. Hot would be Switch C, Slightly Warm would be Switch B and not Warm at all would be Switch A.
