A man is stuck in a stone cave. The only way to get out is if he gets a ping pong ball out of a steel pipe that is cemented 3 feet into the ground. He has nothing with him except a hairdryer and a basket ball. How does he get the pingpong ball?

I have heard this before. Cant think of the answer though. But what does it matter? Why does it matter if he gets the damn pingpong ball or not?

Hmm. OK. Does he need to use air in any way to get the ping-pong ball out?

(if the answer to this is nah, could you drop an extra small hint!!??)

Cuerock -- this is so way off topic, but it's been bugging the heck out of me. Did you "intentionally" type your signature the way you have it? I'm sure you must have, but there's no way, no how I understand it. *lol

He rubbed the (plastic?) hairdryer on his pants and created static electricity and then it attracted the ping pong ball and it came out of the pipe

Yah i figured....NEW GUESS:

he popped a hole in the basketball and squeezed the air into the pipe, forcing the air behind the ping pong ball and making it come out of the pipe.

He popped the basketball and ripped it into strips, then weaved a basket out of it and tied the end of the hair dryer to it. then used it as a scope to pick the ping pong ball out of the bottom of the pipe.

The only other thing I can think of is he peed in the tube, and the ping pong ball floated up. What he did with the hair dryer and basketball are none of your business :lol:

You know that state of mind you're in when you are first waking up and your subconcious is still communicating with you on that higher level? Well when I woke up this morning the word that was in my mind was "dribble" I did a little lateral thinking and came up with this.

I think the guy found him self in quite a jam, so he did what any good basketball player would do and picked up the basketball and dribbled his way out of it.

(I doubt that's the correct answer, but I think I'm on the right track - I'm gonna really be freaked if I'm right).

I'm with ModernDestroyer. He threw the hairdryer away and played basketball to pass the time so that he could periodically go back to the tube and 'pee' the ping-pong ball out...
