    heres the riddle:

    there are 2 men: Jack and John

    Jack is a mute (he cannot talk)

    and John is blind (he cannot see)

    Jack finds out that John's mother has died but John doesnt know this.

    How does Jack tell John that his mother died?



    ^whoever can solve that is the smartest person on the planet

    my psychology prof asked it to the whole class 1st day of class and no one got it for the entire semester

    he just told us the answer earlier today via email

    who can solve this riddle?

    Well, Jack could write John a note in braille. Is that cheating?

    He could take him to his moms house, the blind guy will know it by smell and feeling, then when the blind guy calls out for his mom, the mute guy hugs him as if he is sorry.

    If thats not it, then im done guessing.
