The answer to last week’s challenge is Q: If aerosol propellants burn when lit, how is it that when threatened by a snake whilst on a recent trip to the equator, I was unable to use my deodorant as a flame thrower?

A: I had a roll-on deodorant.

This week’s thinking challenge is:

Q: I bumped into my long-lost Uncle from Ireland in the street. I’d never met him, never seen his picture or even heard a description of him. Yet, I recognised him immediately. How?

The answer along with a new thinking challenge, next week.

Have a great weekend!
