1 A man is trapped in a room. The room has only two possible exits: two doors. Through the first door there is a room constructed from magnifying glass. The blazing hot sun instantly fries anything or anyone that enters. Through the second door there is a firebreathing dragon. How does the man escape? 2 A sundial is a timepiece that has the fewest number of moving parts. Which timepiece has the most moving parts? 3 All the letters of the English Language (eg. A, B, C, etc) have to go to a tea party. Which letters would come late and why? 4 John was watching television. Just after the midnight news there was a weather forecast: "It is raining now and will rain for the next two days. However, in 72 hours it will be bright and sunny." "Wrong again," snorted John. He was correct, but how did he know? 5 Karl Malloy, the famous magician, claims that when he is in the far north, he can point his car north on a ordinary road, drive it for one mile, and without turning around, end up one mile south from where he started. How does he do it? 6 Max Mouse returned from the forest bike race after competing with a bear, a stork, and a frog. Max said the stork finished two places ahead of him, the bear was neither first nor last, and the stork was not second.

The man is a sucker for a free drink, especially since he can't live without it. What is his favorite drink?
