Aha! And welcome to the elite club of people who have solved it. See here (part way down)

YAY, I also get to join the elite group!  My daughter (straight A's) is now arguing with the 98% figure too since she gave up on it.  It does just take some perseverance.

As long as changes can be made, perhaps the beer drinker could switch to orange juice or lemonade if kids are going to try to solve the puzzle.

Re: i have the solution fo "who owns the fish"

It sure is a tough one!

And thank you for the suggestion on beer ... what does everyone else think - should the beer reference stay or go?

Depends what make of beer it is.


Boy let me tell you what:
I bet you didn't know it, but I'm a fiddle player too.
And if you'd care to take a dare, I'll make a bet with you.

But would children know about all the different kinds?
Nevertheless, I am up for the switch just in case they might.

Re: i have the solution fo "who owns the fish"

i got it after a little planning on paper
twas quite clever and the theorum on 98 % is a total random number because with a few clicks of your brain and a pen + paper you can do almost anything * except blow up a cat* because thay have 9 lives and dey are fast

Re: i have the solution fo "who owns the fish"

It is a very good puzzle but all you need is good organization and time- I wouldn't agree that only 98% can do it. I would agree with the statement that beer should be changed, although as far as I am concerned it doesn't matter(if you are really concentrated on the puzzle you don't pay much attention to its morality). But, there are some who care about this and it should be changed then because it is , as I said, a very good puzzle and there shouldn't be bad critics about it.:) I suppose that everyone has correct solution: It is German who lives in green house, drinks coffee and plays soccer. If there is anyone who would like to have it explained, I would be willing to do so.
