Forgot to ask: Do you have similarly confusing riddles (maybe about something other than physics)? I would love to hear some.
@robryk I know a bit a silly one. ;)
You enter a completely dark room. You strike a match to see what's in there.
You see: A candle, a flashlight, and a desk lamp.
What gets lit up first in this room?
@trinsec I think I have trouble parsing. By "lit up" do you mean illuminated (presumably by the light from my match)? Or maybe do you mean that the light from that objects reaches my eyes?
@robryk Yeah. ;) When told right it's a nice one to catch your buddies unaware. It doesn't convey as well in text I suppose. :D
