    a ping pong ball fell into a tight deep pipe. The pipe was only a bit wider than the ball, so you can not use your hand. How would you take it out, with no damage?

    I actually had to do that once. There was this pipe in the middle of the field at camp. I think it used to be a conduit where they brought up the water pipe for a drinking fountain, but the fountain was long gone. It wasn't a ping pong ball that fell down there, but it floated, so the trick worked.
    ya, water.



    How can you throw a ball as hard as you can and have it come back to you, even if it doesn't hit anything, there is nothing attached to it, and no one else catches or throws it?

    This one is not easy

    Post by wprager on Fri Aug 29, 2008 8:00 pm

    Not a simple one, I'm afraid:

    Four glasses are placed in the four corners of a square rotating table
    (like a lazy susan). You wish to turn them all in the same direction,
    either all up or all down. You may do so by grasping any two glasses,
    feeling their orientation, and optionally turning either over. There
    are two catches: you are blindfolded and the table is spun after each
    time you touch the glasses. Assuming that a bell rings when you have
    all the glasses up or all the glasses down, how do you do it?

    Kinda easy:

    You have two identical (in appearance) bars of iron. One is magnetized along its length, the
    other is not. Without using any other instrument (thread, filings,
    other magnets, etc.), find out which is which.

    guess

    sure, and for the glass one, i had no freakin clue, so i googled it-
    1. Turn two adjacent glasses up.
    2. Turn two diagonal glasses up.
    3. Pull out two diagonal glasses. If one is down, turn it up and you're done.
    If not, turn one down and replace.
    4. Take two adjacent glasses. Invert them both.
    5. Take two diagonal glasses. Invert them both.
