    Don't worry, here's another. This time don't clicky on the spiler thingy whenever it appears:

    An electrician has a problem in a new house. There is a bundle of 15 wires running from the basement to the third floor (yeah, a high-rise). Of course the wires are not labeled in any way and he needs to find out which end in the basement belongs to which end on the top floor. He's got no assistant and just very simply tools:
    - a continuity tester
    - masking tape and pencil (to label the wire-ends)
    - a notepad to write everything down

    His task is easily defined: twist pairs of wires together in the basement and use the continuity tester upstairs to figure out which ends belong together.

    What's the minimum number of trips up or down the stairs he needs to do to complete this task?

    Minimum number of trips up or down the stairs is 2.

    HAH! Sometimes the answer is the most obvious one. I've learned that several, several times...

    You're too good PFK. I thought for sure that would have people stumped for a good while.

    Once again, the answer is obvious, the solution, not so much.

    Isn't it actually two mothers and *three* daughters? A girl, her mom and her grandma (the grandma is someone's daughter).

    OK, here's an easier one:

    Continue this letter sequence:
