I came across this puzzle the other day and thought I’d post it for y’all to try:
As you can see, there are two rooms. One room contains 3 normal light bulbs, the other contains 3 switches. Each switch turns one of the light bulbs on and off – the objective is to work out which switch controls which bulb. However, you can only enter each room once. Also, you can’t see the light shining out of the room, you can’t move the switches or bulbs, or any other form of cheating like that.
The idea behind it is that if you get it, you’re more likely to be a physicist, and if you can’t, you’re more likely a mathematician. What are you?
In other news, RL is looking as busy as anything this week, so expect some slightly more random and/or short posts before we get back into the swing of things properly.
