    A true story: a white horse jumped over a tower and landed on a priest, who immediately disappeared from the landscape.
    Where did this take place?

    What's as light as smoke but strong as a brick?

    Heres another one.
    Kind of easy but I'll give you a logic question.

    Because cigars cannot be entirely smoked, a hobo who collects cigar butts can make a cigar to smoke out of every 5 butts that he finds. Today, he has collected 25 cigar butts. How many cigars will he be able to smoke?

    Good answer! I assume the intended answer is 6, but 4.8 is more precise.

    The usual response to this question is indeed 6.
    Lots of people have heard this puzzle before, which is why it is a nice surprise to meet a different answer that is also valid.

    So, here is a puzzle for you: how is 4.8 a correct answer?

    a person can never smoke an entire cigar (that would leave no butt)
    so he can ROLL 6 cigars but only smoke 4/5 of each (5 butts =1 cigar =>1 butt = 1/5 => smoked part = 4/5) 0.8x6=4.8

    It can't be because a cigar cannot be fully smoked. And if it takes 0.2 of a cigar to make a new cigar then with 25 butts he can make 5 cigars, but can only smoke 5*0.8 = 4 cigars. Then with the 5 - 0.2's of a cigar left he makes a new cigar and smokes it (but only 0.8 of it).

    ThousandYoung's answer was correct.

    EDIT: Answered before I could get to it. Darn! Too many people who understand that this question is more interesting if you want it to be.
