A Man and A BridgeTrick brain teasers appear difficult at first, but they have a trick that makes them really easy.
There once was a man, who usually went to the bar on Sundays, and drank. But one particular Sunday, the man was drunk when he came across a rich man staring at an old bridge. The bridge was full of dirt, sod, and bugs. The rich man then saw that the drunk man was going to cross the dirty bridge. The rich man told him, "That bridge is so dirty, nobody wants to cross it. If you can cross it, without any part of your body touching it, I will pay you $1,000. If you do touch it with any part of your body, then you will have to pay me $100." Being drunk, the man agreed, but then suddenly realized what he was agreeing to. But then, he thought of an idea, and then crossed the bridge according to the rich man's rules, and later returned home $1,000 richer. How was this possible?
HintReread the bet carefully...
AnswerThe rich man said that no part of his body could touch it, but shoes aren't part of his body! So then the drunk man just simply crossed the bridge.
