Mental Floss 10





The answer to last week’s Mental Floss. Q: Arthur goes to the Doctor and asks the Dr to give him an all over check up. He says “I feel extreme pain whenever I prod any part of my body. Each time the pain is just the same. The Dr, who is amazed by this asks Arthur to have a whole body x-ray and come back and see him the following day. Arthur does so and the next day the Dr tells him exactly what the problem is. What was Arthur’s diagnosis?

A: Arthur has a broken finger.

This week’s lateral thinking challenge is …

A woman left her flat to go to work. Upon her return at the end of the day she discovered her flat has been broken into. The thieves have taken everything except for 2 x one hundred dollar bills that were in plain sight. Why weren’t these taken?
For those who would like to improve their ability to think laterally and routinely produce new ideas, join us for our next training session in the Six Thinking Hats® on December 6 in Melbourne. All details are in the link attached.

The answer will appear with next week’s Mental Floss.




Good Luck!
