a challenge to all logicians. part 1

Dear logicians,
I challenge you to a game of logic and reasoning.

My challenge is for my test to be completed. The test consists of 20 baffling brainteasers and visual quests.

To win I have to see all my puzzles answered correctly. Anyone can answer, which means everyone can work together. If the test is beaten, I will admit defeat and proclaim all of you logicians of the year.

I will give 1 puzzle per week and if my puzzle is not answered in that week, i will give a hint and wait till the answer comes.

I shall announce the first question, which is a riddle and fairly easy, just to start off slowly.

1: 3 men sit in a boat, they have 100 cigarettes, yet nothing to light them with. There are no other objects on the boat besides the men and the cigarettes and the sun is down. How do the men light the cigarettes before the sun comes up?

The question is a JOKE, so the answer is a joke.

Nope! Good guess though spunelli! but remember, the question is a joke, so the answer is jokey and impossible. I'll give another hint. THE MEN DID SOMETHING, WHICH MADE THE BOAT SOMETHING.

They throw one cigarette overboard which makes it a cigarette lighter.:cool:

Congrats! You got the first one right and at the end of the game, I will put your name in the hall of fame along with the 19 others that get the question(s) right. (not the actual hall of fame on the website though)
