We rcvd this riddle at work and the link for the answer wont work and I am dying to know the answer:

A man in a restaurant asked a waiter for a juice glass, a dinner plate, water, a match, and a lemon wedge. The man poured

enough water onto the plate to cover it. "If you can get the water on the plate into the glass without touching or moving this

plate, I will give you $100, " the man said. "You can use the match and lemon to do this."

A few minutes later, the waiter walked away with $100 in his pocket. How did the waiter get the water into the glass?


I NEED THE ANSWER! THANKS

Illuvitar,

I find it hard to believe that he could collect all of the water from the plate using that method without touching the plate.

That was my initial thought too, but wouldn't the match burn out before all the water entered the cup?
