Brain Teasers

Welcome to Brain Teasers.

A place to have some fun and to work our brains.

Here’s the scoop…

To receive a brain teaser in the mail complete the sign up form. (Your information is protected and will not be sold to any other party, company, or whatever and will only be used by my to send cards in the mail.)

Every few weeks you will receive a couple of brain teasers in the mail.

About a week after the brains teasers are mailed out the answers will be posted here.

To have some fun
Because it might make you feel good
Because you can share it
Because getting a brain teaser in the mail is better than getting a bill or a letter from your MPP
Because it makes me feel good
Because I like writing letters and cards

I like word games, brain teasers, riddles etc. They make me think and let me have fun at the same time. When you add the fact that I like reading and writing you will understand why I have added this to my website. I get to write people who want to hear from me. I get to share something I like. I get the pleasure of searching for new brain teasers all the time. I get to be creative. I get to imagine the pleasure of someone receiving a real card in the mail.

If this is not for you no problem.

If you think someone else may enjoy it feel free to share it.

Something to think about is who do you know who would like to receive a card in the mail.

Here’s and example: My mom is in a senior’s home. She doesn’t go on the internet any more. She enjoys getting the cards I send. She shares them with other people in the home. When I call her she tells me how much fun she has receiving them and how she looks forward to the next one.

There is no charge to you for receiving Brain Teasers.

Here are some brainteasers I sent to a bloke who is in the hospital in Australia.

Interesting story about him.

His name is Fred Pointer. He’s 78 years old.

Fred Pointer is an Australian Paralympic athlete and wheelchair basketball player. At the 1980 Arnhem Games, he competed in four athletics events and won two bronze medals in the Men’s 400 m 3 and Men’s Slalom 3 events.[1] He was also part of the Australia men’s national wheelchair basketball team at the 1980 games.[2] To raise money to get to the Arnhem Games he travelled from Melbourne(MCG) to Sydney(SCG) in a wheelchair he designed himself. (credit wikipedia)

When I sent the card to Fred I scrambled the letters in the answers on the back of the cards.

What is greater than God,
more evil than the devil,
the poor have it,
the rich need it,
and if you eat it, you’ll die?
