Can You Think Laterally?


This is what we sometimes talk about in my lessons!

 

Coal, carrot, scarf

 

Five pieces of charcoal, a carrot and a scarf are lying on a hill near a remote house. Nobody put them there. What happened?


 

Hut in the Desert

 

In the desert, there is a wooden hut. The hut is completely empty except for a dead man hanging from a metal ring in the centre of the ceiling. The rope around his neck is ten feet long and his feet are three feet off the ground. The door is locked from the inside. There is an empty truck parked outside. The man hanged himself. How did he do it?


 

Gangster John

 

Acting on an anonymous phone call, the police raid a house to arrest a gangster. They don't know what he looks like but they know his name is John and that he is inside the house. The police bust in on a carpenter, a lorry driver, a mechanic and a fireman all playing poker. Without hesitation or communication of any kind, they immediately arrest the fireman. How do they know they've got their man?


 

The Elevator

 

 A man lives in the penthouse of an apartment building. Every morning he takes the elevator down to the lobby and leaves the building. On his return, however, he can only travel halfway up in the lift and has to walk the rest of the way - unless it's raining. What is the explanation for this?
