Evanescent Thoughts

Brain Bashers !!!!

with 8 comments

I came across this site

The puzzles are really interesting and funny..The one i liked most is the following one..

  • My brother, the local bus driver, was telling me that recently he was driving a bus full of people and no-one got off on the way. However, at the end of the journey, there was not a single person left on the bus. How?

  • What occurs four times in every week, twice in every month but only once in a year?

  • Two fine fellows were working very hard all day at the local coal mine. One of the fellows managed to get a really dirty face, but the other fellow managed to stay clean. When they reached the end of their day and re-joined the surface in the lift, the fellow with the dirty face simply went home, however, the fellow with the clean face rushed off to wash. Why?

chk out the answers in comments …

  1. first ques : “Everyone on the bus was married and therefore not single”.
    second ques : The letter E.
    third ques : The fellow with the clean face saw the fellow with the dirty face and thought his face was also dirty and wanted to wash it and vice versa.
