Al’s Fish

Apparently, Einstein had to prove, yet again, that he was a genius by creating a logic problem that 98% of the population cannot solve. I’d call it a typical grammar school case of “I’m smarter than you are” with the annoying real world equivalent of “no really, I am smarter than you are”, but let’s assume Mr. Einstein’s intentions are pure. Al developed a simple question, Whose Fish?, and constructed a ridiculously difficult answer to which I’m still not privy. The hints below are rumored to be a complete set of the data Einstein originally provided with the question and the clues, which are mine, should be used at your own discretion. Good luck.

1. The Brit lives in the red house.
2. The Swede keeps dogs as pets.
3. The Dane drinks tea.
4. The green house is on the left of the white house.
5. The green house owner drinks coffee.
6. The person who smokes Pall Malls keeps birds.
7. The owner of the yellow house smokes Dunhills.
8. The man living in the house right in the center drinks milk.
9. The man who smokes Blends lives next to the one who keeps cats.
10. The Norwegian lives in the first house.
11. The man who keeps horses lives next to the one who smokes Dunhills.
12. The owner who smokes Bluemasters drinks beer.
13. The German smokes Princes.
14. The Norwegian lives next to the blue house.
15. The man who smokes Blends has a neighbor who drinks water.

My possibly accurate clues keeping in mind I have yet to solve the puzzle:

  • The Brit has a bird.
  • The Swede drinks beer.
  • The Dane lives in the blue house.

If the pressure is too much click here and I’m told the answer will appear.
