This week’s Mental Floss challenge is:
Q: A person is replacing a wheel on their car when they accidentally drop the all the nuts used to attach the wheel to the car. The nuts fall down a drain and are irretrievably lost. A passer by however offers them a solution that still enables them to drive home. What did they suggest?
The answer to this along with a new lateral thinking challenge will appear in next week’s blog.
In the interim have a Safe and Happy Christmas!
