Lanny McDonald, Joel Otto, Jim Peplinski and Tim Hunter are playing a board game when Mike Vernon walks in, “Hey, I have this new magic trick. I will bet you one dollar that you cannot figure it out.”. Lanny, Joel, Jim and Tim look at each other and nod. Mike takes out a bag of ice cubes and pours them into a cup. He was also sipping a bottle of Sprite. His trick is he can slowly transfer the Sprite from the bottle into the cup without ever touching it. Everyone agrees to the trick only if they can lock the door and Mike needs to stay with the others until tomorrow. Tomorrow arrives, they unlock the door and see the bottle of Sprite and a cup of liquid. Lanny tastes the liquid in the cup and sure enough, it was Sprite. Tim tastes the liquid in the Sprite bottle and it is definitely water. Joel and Jim thought hard but could not figure it out. Can you help them save their dollar from Mike?

Brennan and his two friends, Alex, who was holding his unopened soda, and Elisha, who was humming a tune, walked into a room of a building. Suddenly, the door slams shut behind them. They looked around the room and the only way out was through the door. The only thing in the room was a thick metal tube about 1 foot tall with an opening of an inch in diameter, secured to the floor with a key to the lock inside it. The tube is too narrow to reach in with your hands. The key looks to be made of a light plastic material. You also find sand, rocks, a bottle of glue and a magnet. Brennan and his friends looked at everything they have and found a way to get the key to get out. How did they do it?
