Lateral Problems

Post by Ohtar on Mon Dec 28, 2009 2:31 pm

First topic message reminder :

So, since I am a firm believer that games help keep people checking the forums (although I wish it was just to see how things are going in the guild), and I think everyone is tiring of the current games. Here's a new one.

Rules: Everyone gets either one guess, or they can ask one "yes" or "no" question a day. If you miss a day you do not get to ask two questions just one. (If someone knows how to transport stuff from one player to another I'll start giving away in game prizes)

So, we'll start with a common one first.

"A man lives on the tenth floor of an apartment building and takes the elevator down to the ground floor every time he leaves the apartment, and the days he goes to work he drives the 0.5 miles to it. Whenever the man returns home he takes the elevator to the fifth floor; then he walks the other five flights of stairs, which he does not like doing. Why does he walk the last five flights of stairs?"

The current question

Elevator II

A healthy man is on the fifth floor, and takes the elevator down to the first floor (the ground floor) every day to go to the gym before starting the morning activities, but when he comes back every evening he is forced to walk from the ground floor to the fifth floor. His wife however, who gets back at the same time he does takes the elevator from the first to the fifth floor. Why then does he walk up the five flights of stairs?

Nope, the elevator is a pretty stranded one, and can easily hold ten people. More if you crammed people inside of it.

hmm I'm gonna guess that his wife makes him take the stairs so he'll lose weight (get some exercise in the evening as well as in the morning)
