Everyday Einstein – 8.23.2010

From Cunning Lateral Thinking Puzzles by paul Sloane and Des McHale:

“How did Archimedes, one of the first and greatest lateral thinkers, manage to sink a Roman fleet of ships in the Mediterranean?”

Clues:

– He used science and simple weapons that cost very little.

– He did not use projectiles, boats, or animals.

– This would not have worked on a rainy day (like today in Brookline!)”
