Wait...for #1 he most certainly can be buried in Canada, just once he dies. I get where you meant to go with that one, but it makes sense as it is. It doesn't say he must be buried immediately.

•Why can't a man living in the USA be buried in Canada?

- Of course! The man is still alive! "a man living in the USA"

•Is it legal for a man in California to marry his widow's sister? Why?

- No! Widow signifies that a woman is husband-less, so, how can a dead marry a living person.

•A man builds a house rectangular in shape. All the sides have southern exposure. A big bear walks by. What color is the bear? Why? (similar to the Bear riddle in the section Einstein's Riddles)

- White. The house was built along the ice in Southern Hemisphere.

•If there are 3 apples and you take away 2, how many do you have?

- 2. (the statement doesn't tell that the 3 apples are yours, you took 2 from them)



•You can start a fire if you have alcohol, petrol, kerosene, paper, candle, coke, a full matchbox and a piece of cotton wool. What is the first thing you light?

- The matchstick, of course!

•Why do Chinese men eat more rice than Japanese men do?

- Chinese men this present uses spoon while Japanese still use the traditional chopstick.
