Mental Floss 83






The answer to last week’s mental floss is Q: A horse leaps over a tower and lands on a man, who is promptly removed. Why?

A: It was a chess move with Knight taking Pawn.

This week’s lateral thinking challenge is …

Q: You are driving your car on a wild, stormy night, when you pass by a bus stop and you see three people waiting: An old lady who looks as if she is about to die, An old friend who once saved your life and the perfect partner you have been dreaming about. Knowing that there can only be one passenger in the car, who would you choose?

The answer along with a new challenge next week.

Enjoy the weekend!
