Riddles with a tricky answer in Russian

In some city, a new order was introduced. Now everyone who wanted to enter the city was stopped by the guards at the entrance and asked the same question: "Why do you want to enter the city?" If a person, in response to this question, spoke the truth, then they drowned him in a pond, and if it was not true, they hung him on the gallows. For a long time, no one could enter the city after passing through this ordeal. But there was such a daredevil who said that he could pass without being drowned in a pond or hanged on a gallows. Boasted and... passed! What did he say to the guard?

In a certain state there was such a custom: Everyone condemned to death, before death, drew lots. He took out one of the two pieces of paper from the drawer. On one was written "Death", on the other - "Life". If he took out a piece of paper "Death" - he was executed, "life" - released.
One person who lived in this country had enemies who slandered him and forced him to be executed. The day before the draw, they snuck into the court and replaced the piece of paper with the inscription "Life" in the box with a piece of paper with the inscription "Death". Thus, there were now 2 pieces of paper in the box, and "Death" was written on both. The man should have been executed anyway.
But the man's friends learned of the enemy's tricks and warned him. They advised the convict to tell the court about everything, so that the court would replace the papers and the correct lot would be drawn. But the defendant said everything was fine. In the morning in court, he went to the box and pulled out one piece of paper ... He did something ... and was released!
What did he do?

Contrary to the conventional wisdom that a lucky player can win exactly as much as other players lose, Sam Lloyd, the greatest puzzle inventor of all time, believes that there are games with better conditions for players. Listen to his story:
- Four merry fellows sat down to play,
And they played all night until dawn;
They played for money, not just for fun
Everyone had their own account
Well, when they began to count the winnings,
Turns out it's the same for everyone!
Can you explain this paradox?
If no one lost, how did they all win?

There is a basement in which there are 3 light bulbs.

A hat was put on the head of each of the three wise men. It is known that there are only 5 hats: 3 black and 2 white.

They are allowed to speculate aloud about their hat, but nothing about the others.
It is known that before that they communicated and agreed on the course of their opinions and actions.
How did they do it?

Once a father said to his sons: "Saddle your horses and ride from one city to another. Whose horse comes to the finish line last, he will receive a reward." The sons mounted their horses and barely dragged along. Towards the wise man, asks what's the matter, why they drive so slowly. They tell. He said only two words to them, and in less than a minute they were already galloping to the finish line with all their might. What did he tell them?

I do not have a pocket (wrist) clock, but only a wall clock that has stopped. I went to my friend, whose watch always shows the perfect time, found out what time it was and, without staying long with him, returned home. At home, I quickly calculated everything and put the hands of my watch in the position that corresponds to the correct time.

Blinking of the magician and his audience 19.05.2024

Magic and illusions have always captured the attention of the public, but what happens behind the scenes of the magician and in the brains of his audience? Scientists from the UK decided to solve this mystery by conducting a new study involving ten illusionists of varying experience. Illusionists, some of whom had been practicing magic for more than half a century, others for only six months, were invited to demonstrate the same trick - the popular coin trick. Recordings of their performances during training and on stage showed that each of them began to blink significantly more often at the moment of performing the trick. The study's findings indicate that magicians' blink rate may be related to unconscious aspects of their performance. At the same time, as scientists have found, spectators also begin to blink more often, following the movements of the illusionist. This observation supports the idea that magicians may be catalysts for blinking in audiences. Additional research has shown that magicians blink more often during ... >>

Ultrasonic coffee machine 19.05.2024

Iced coffee has become an integral part of coffee culture in recent years. Therefore, engineers from the University of New South Wales decided to improve its preparation. They have developed an ultrasonic coffee machine that reduces the cold brew time for ground coffee beans from 12-24 hours to significantly less time. Iced coffee, or "Cold brew", is popular due to its smoothness, low acidity and low bitterness. It is prepared by steeping ground coffee in cold water for a long time. Unlike traditional hot brewing, which often imparts bitterness to coffee, cold brewing extracts more delicate and complex flavors from the coffee beans. The innovative system, presented by a team of engineers, introduces ultrasonic technology into the coffee preparation process. The system uses ultrasonic waves to speed up the process of extracting oils, flavor and aroma from ground coffee. This allows you to significantly reduce the time ... >>

The speech of sperm whales is similar to that of humans 18.05.2024

In the world of the ocean, where the mysterious and unknown coexists with the studied, sperm whales, with their huge brains, are of particular interest to science. Researchers, working with a huge array of audio recordings collected during the Dominica Sperm Whale Project (DSWP) - more than 8000 recordings, seek to unravel the secrets of their communication and understand the structure and complexity of the language of these mysterious creatures. By studying in detail the recordings of 60 sperm whales in the eastern Caribbean, scientists have revealed surprising features of their communication, revealing the complexity of their language. "Our observations indicate that these whales have a highly developed combinatorial communication system, including rubato and ornaments, which indicates their ability to quickly adapt and vary during communication. Despite significant differences in evolution, sperm whales have elements in their communication that are characteristic of human communication," says Shane Gero, a biologist at Carleton University and director of the CETI project.
