Comment on Whose Fish? (logic puzzle) by Kevin Q

my solution in 4 main steps. Step 4 is Make the table as above, numbers 1-5 along the top and then the 5 categories listed along the LH margin. I found it easier to score out the clues once they became redundant. 1) do all the gimmes (Norway, Blue, Milk) a) this would be clue9, clue8, clue14 2) do the house colours a) with clue4 Green can only be house3 or 4. b) with clue5 Green can only be house4. c) with clue1 the red house has to be house3 d) so we have Y B R G W as order of houses 3) do all the next set of gimmes a) clue1 house3 with Brit b) clue7 house1 with dunhill c) clue5 house4 with coffee d) clue11 house2 with horse 4) Now I did trial and error. with clue3, the Dane could only be house2 or house5. So I put him in house2 to start and then worked through the clues. a) clue3 dane and tea in house2 b) clue12 beer and camel in house5 c) water must be in house1 d) clue15 blend is house2 e) clue13 german and malborough must be house4 f) swede must be house 5 (so we have row 2: NOR DAN BRIT GER SWEDE) g) we have row3 (WAT TEA MILK COF BEER) h) Pallmall must be in house3. so we have row4 (DUN BLEND PM MALB CAM) i) clue2 dog in house5 j) clue6 birds in house3 k) clue10 cats in house1 l) we now have row5 (CAT HORSE BIRD XXXX DOG) which means that FISH must be in house4 or with the German.

I just did my first half, but I was worring too much about time + I started too fast. Do not make these simple mistakes. Great advice!

I'm starting to see now that I have a very limited understanding of how programming works.... I don't even know where to begin except to ask you if you can help me. I do know enough to understand that someone unstable is tormenting me by using unix and multiple types of coding to actively and remotely access my cell, my computer....even the tv I suspect. I would just let it go on like this, but it's been a year now of strange phone calls and vague threats on my life, and now this person is hurting my parents indirectly. I don't have anyone to go to, I've been cut off socially because this individual is fond of making me reset my cell. Is there anything you can do or recommend?

As noted above, Caballo passed late March, 2012. Here's a story I found: http://www.nytimes.com/2012/05/21/sports/caballo-blancos-last-run-the-micah-true-story.html?pagewanted=all

The riddle is based upon the principles that govern "logic". In Western civilizations our logic would dictate that the houses would be either in a row (more likely) or a column (less likely). Based upon that and the dictates of Western logic, the clue, "The Norwegian lives in the first house. " means his house MUST be on the far left and the houses MUST be arranged in a row otherwise the clue using the words "... left of...." is invalid. A riddle based on logic compensates for cultural references, cliches and biases. If not we would automatically conclude that the German drinks beer, the Brit drinks tea and smokes Pall Mall etc. and we would be solving the riddle in an illogical manner.That's not to say it can't be solved in an illogical way but simply that the solution would be derived in an unintended manner. I don't know how Eastern civilizations' respective logics unfurl. Their dictates may well precipitate differing arrangements of houses, colors etc. but I would hazard to guess that they too would arrive at the same answer as to whom the fish belongs. I solved it in 20-30 minutes based upon the afore mentioned principles of Western logic. I concur with those who think it's highly probable that more than 2% of people can solve this. First, it's based upon logical thinking and not how well you're educated. Second, if I can solve it, it isn't that difficult. I am NOT a very logical thinker. (image) Victor

the norwegian is in the first house so that doesn't work.
