  1. #1 Two brain teasers for you

    The west coast of Scotland is renowned for being very rainy. All the locals wear raincoats but holidaymaker Timmy has no coat, hat or umbrella. He sits in a cafe drinking a steaming much of hot Turkish coffee and reading a newspaper to pass the time. He eventually realises he should be on his way. To get back to his hotel, he needs to walk across a large field and through a treeless park. He arrives back at the hotel bone dry. How has he avoided getting wet?

    And another:

    A man has a ferocious argument with his darling lady wife one morning, and storms out of the house, possibly because she used one of the Forbidden Insults in her rage. In any case, this man goes for a drive and throws himself face first off a cliff. Later in the evening, he walks in the house unharmed and demands his dinner. How did he survive?

    To unwind from the argument, he went BASE jumping! He is unharmed because he had a parachute!! :D

    At least we are trying! How about some credit for that??? :D

    OK... how about this:

    Timmy is a "holidaymaker" according to the story...
    He made a Sun-day, and walked to the hotel perfectly dry!

    Used the newspaper as a makeshift umbrella.

    1. The guy wasn't on the west coast of Scottland
    2. He went cliff diving and or some sort of parasailing and such

    Right?
