Brainteaser Tuesday

Growing evidence suggests that a lifetime spent using your noodle — in your day job as an astrophysicist or mom, or after hours playing Monopoly, tooting the clarinet in your local chamber group, or doing crossword puzzles — may build extra brain connections (a kind of mental savings account called cognitive reserve) and slow the symptoms of dementia.

Tuesday is our official Brainteaser day. Each week I'll post some new puzzles, riddles or brainteasing game of some sort for you to figure out and work YOUR noodle. Please share your answers with us in the replies.

We'll start slow this week. Here's a couple riddles for you to get going:

  • What gets wetter and wetter the more it dries?
  • You throw away the outside and cook the inside. Then you eat the outside and throw away the inside. What did you eat?
