    I know there are more riddles like this one. A few years ago I solved some but at the moment I can only find the classic one with three workers and travellers on a train.
    If you know any please pOst.

    This is not a 'riddle' in the sense that an American understands the word; this is what we know as a logic problem. Google 'logic problems'; you should be able to find tons. Dell and Penny Press, among others, publish books of these periodically.

    I love logic problems. :) Here's one site where you can play online or print the puzzle. I don't particularly like that they provide the grid but I just ignore it and scribble all over a piece of paper. :lol:

    I love these, you can buy entire books of them with the graphs that help you to eliminate choices. It would seem almost impossible to do without some way to keep track of your thoughts.

    Nah, just makes it a bit more challenging - especially with my chicken scratches all over a sheet of paper. :lol:

    thanks a bunch milanessa!!
    I have been in the most boring seminar known to womenkind just now and it would have killed me if I hadn't be able to do some logic puzzles.

    I also like to do them on a paper myself which is later completely scribbled on and full.

    Einstein couldn't have written it early in the 19th century, since he wasn't born yet.

    I got the riddle right....but I seriously doubt he wrote it.
