Next one: (three foods)
Beads Galore

Dina has a bag of beads to make a necklace. When asked to tell how many beads are in the bag, she said, “I can make sets of 2 beads, 4 beads, and 5 beads and not have any beads left over. When I divide the beads into 9 sets, I have 7 beads left over.”
What is the least number of beads Dina can have?
2?????????????

Sorry swilk, but we're on to lateral thinking puzzles now. Just as an FYI.

---------- PorcelainNinja added 1 Minutes and 27 Seconds later ----------

Good guesses, guys, but nope! The answer is: (drumroll plz) the ice was poisoned, but, eating quickly, Guy 2's ice didn't have time to melt! Guy 1's did, though, so he died. Sorry, guy 1!

OK, next puzzle in a few minutes.

---------- PorcelainNinja added 2 Minutes and 15 Seconds later ----------

The Coin
John is on a raft, adrift in the ocean with several other survivors of a shipwreck. The others are too weak, so he or Mike will swim to a nearby island to look for help. It is almost certainly suicidal, due to the circling sharks, but they have little else to hope for. Mike takes the lose change from his pocket and puts two pennies in a hat. He tells John that one is a 2005 penny, and the other 1975. If John picks the newer penny he can stay on the rat, and Mike will risk his life. If John picks the older penny, he must go. John has seen that both pennies were actually dated 1975, but he doesn't want to say anything, because Mike is a big guy. How does he win, and get Mike to go, without exposing him as a fraud in front of the others? (five foods)

He hides a 2005 penny in his hand, puts that hand in the hat, and pulls out that penny!

John reaches into the hat and takes out either penny. He lets it slip out of his hand and fall into the ocean. Apologizing, he suggests that if the remaining penny in the hat is the 1975 one, he must have picked the 2005 penny. mike cant argue because then he would have to admit that he lied and put in 2 1975 pennies

next puzzle:
The Convent
A man came to visit at a convent while the Mother Superior was out of town. He left before she returned, and was careful to leave nothing behind. The nuns said nothing about his visit, so how did the Mother Superior figure out that a man had been there?

(three foods)
