between three rooms. The first is full of raging fires,
the second is full of assassins with loaded guns, and

The third room, since the lions would be dead.
You have 50 quarters on the table in front of you. You are
blindfolded and cannot discern whether a coin is heads up or tails up by
feeling it. You are told that x coins are heads up, where 0 < x < 50.
You are asked to separate the coins into two piles in such a way that the
number of heads up coins in both piles is the same at the end.
You may flip any coin over as many times as you want. How will you do it?
Take x coins, flip all of them and put them in one pile. The rest of the coins form the second pile.
Two men are standing on one side of a bridge and two women are
approaching them. One of the men says, "Here comes my wife and

daughter". If they have not married the same woman and the women aren't
pregnant, how is this true?
The men are widowers and married each others' daughter.
