  • Actually she can, unless I have a huge flaw in my logical thinking.

    After she has picked gloves 3 she can have:
    3 black gloves.
    3 brown gloves.
    2 black gloves and 1 brown glove.
    2 brown gloves and 1 black glove.

    In all 4 scenarios she has one matching pair, and thus she can be certain after 3 picks.

    • Adventure, are you taking left/right handed gloves into consideration?

      I think she would have to pull out 13 gloves.

          LOL, no I obviously didn't. Thanks Crimson.

          It must be 13 in then indeed.

          In worst case scenario she would pick
          - 6 black left handed gloves (or 6 black right handed gloves)
          - 6 brown left handed gloves (or 6 brown right gloves)
          After that she always get a match.

            Sure. After 12 gloves, she could have pulled out either all left-handed gloves or all right-handed gloves of both colors. The 13th would have to match with something, then.

            Alright an easy one:

            There is a house with 4 walls. Each wall has one window. When you look outside through the windows you always look at the south. How is that possible?
            I always heard this one told like this: "You are in a house with 4 walls, with a window in each wall. Each window has a southern exposure. As you look out a window, a bear walks by. What color is the bear?" A bit trickier, because the bear part distracts people from the southern exposure part.

            Hmmm.... let me think of another one.

            Here we go. Even if you give this to someone else, you can still keep it. What is it?

              • Not the answers I was looking for... Although I suppose they work. This is something less tangible.

                    • Lilli has the answer I was thinking of! Good job!

                      EDIT: Oh, your word works, too--it's basically the same thing. But based on edit times, I think Lilli was first.

                      • Yes, Lilli was first. I didn't refreshed the page before I made that edit.

                        Congrats Lilli.

                          I will post something simple:

                          This place is dark and short of space yet the inhabitants never complain. What can it be?

                            • Pffft... I made a bet with Crimson how long it would take you to guess the right answer and I just lost
                              I was thinking grave but it's the same thing. Good job. Your turn

                              • K , I'll just paste this gem I found through GOOGLE .

                                A man walks up to you and says - "Everything I say to you is a lie."
                                Is he telling you the truth or is he lying ?

                                The answer is pretty logical .
                                If cancer is our love, then I hope you don’t have the technology of chemotherapy.
