Einstein's Logic Puzzle That 98% of the World Population Can't Solve.

There are 5 houses each with a different color. Their owners, each with a unique heritage, drinks a certain type of beverage, smokes a certain brand of cigarette, and keep acertain variety of pet. None of the owners have the same pet, smoke the same brand of cigarette or drink the same beverage.

  • The Brit lives in the red house.
  • The Swede keeps dogs as pets.
  • The Dane drinks tea.
  • The green house is just to the left of the white house.
  • The green house's owner drinks coffee.
  • The person who smokes Pall Malls raises birds.
  • The owner of the yellow house smokes Dunhill.
  • The man living in the center house drinks milk.
  • The Norwegian lives in the first house.
  • The man who smokes Blends lives next to the one who keeps cats.
  • The man who keeps a horse lives next to the man who smokes Dunhill.
  • The owner who smokes Bluemasters also drinks beer.
  • The German smokes Prince.
  • The Norwegian lives next to the blue house.
  • The man who smokes Blends has a neighbor who drinks water.
Who owns the fish?

You may now thank me for ruining your holiday.

Here's what I have:

I got the colors, and maybe a few other things, but it gets mucky after that.

I think it is the Brit, but my friend says it's the German.

I like these sorts of things, a little bit of time and little knowledge of anything in particular make me feel nice and smug for a short while. My process also says it is the German who keeps fish. Once I figured out the Norwegian drank water, it all fell together. It was like a Sudoku without numbers.

Did I got it right? It's the German, who lives in the green house, who drinks coffee and smoke Prince. =)
I'll remove this post if you want to keep the answer a secret.
Come on ! No ! We are already too much to be 2% !! lol
Come to think of it, now I think it's the Frenchman who keeps the fish.. =)

I think it should read:
Einstein's Logic Puzzle That 80% of Instructablers will be able to solve.
That 98% might holds true if it was posted in someplace like Myspace though.

There're just a lot of nerds here =P
I've found the solution !! =o)
The German keep the fish !!

What do you think ? Does it mean I'm a genius, or does it mean I'm stubborn ? =o)
(I'm part of the 2% !! Yahoooooooo !!!! I'm member of an elite !!!)
Time to take a Mensa test ? :-)
lol I'm sure I'm too much intelligent to make this test lol
