How can you stick 10 pins into a balloon without it popping? (fun fact: you can actually stick a skewer through a balloon without popping it. Simply rub dish washing liquid over the skewer and stick it in a balloon! :)

You meet a mother with two children. She tells you that one of them is a boy. What is the probability that the other is also a boy?

A mother and father have two daughters who were born on the same day of the same month of the same year, but are not twins. How are they related to each other?

Some children are raking leaves on their street. They gather 7 piles at one house, 4 piles at another, and 5 piles at another. When they put them all together, how many piles do they have?

Acting on an anonymous phone call, the police raid a house to arrest a suspected murderer. They don't know what he looks like but they know his name is John, and that he is in the house. Inside they find a mechanic, a lorry driver, a mechanic and a fireman playing poker. Without hesitation or communication of any kind, they arrest the fireman. How do they know they have their man?
