    Einstein's Riddle :: Who own's the fish?

    No using Google, no saying old. If you know the answer, then don't post it quite yet.

    Saw this elsewhere, thought I'd share it here...
    • This is solvable….

      1. There are 5 houses in 5 different colors. In each house lives a person with a different nationality.

      2. The 5 owners drink a certain type of beverage, smoke a certain brand of cigar, and keep a certain pet.

      3. No owners have the same pet, smoke the same brand of cigar, or drink the same beverage.

      The question is, “Who owns the fish?”

      Facts:

      The Brit lives in the red house.

      The Swede keeps dogs as pets.

      The Dane drinks tea.

      The green house is on the immediate left of the white house.

      The green house’s owner drinks coffee.

      The person who smokes Pall Mall rears birds.

      The owner of the yellow house smokes Dunhill.

      The man living in the center house drinks milk.

      The Norwegian lives in the first house.

      The man who smokes Blends lives next to the one who keeps cats.

      The man who keeps the horse lives next to the man who smokes Dunhill.

      The owner who smokes Bluemasters drinks beer.

      The German smokes Prince.

      The Norwegian lives next to the blue house.

      The man who smokes Blends has a neighbour who drinks water.

    See the worksheet here...

    It took me two days (including school, work, food, and sleep) and 7 pieces of paper to get this right.

    Good luck everyone.

    Funny, I don't remember sexual orientation as part of the puzzle?

    ok, i am taking a break... i'll look at this again tomorrow... i can't be in the 98%...

    i wish i could just solve it by putting
    error_reporting(E_ALL);
    at the top of the page and see where my logic is failing..
