Too bad all the people who know how to run the country are busy driving taxicabs and cutting hair.

HE POSED THE QUESTION...

My New Mind Teaser Technique is Unstoppable
This was snagged off Ernie's House of Whoop Ass, where it was posted under the belief that Albert Einstein came up with it. There's some dissent around here whether or not he came up with it, but everywhere I seen it around the net, its attributed to the man himself...

There are 5 houses in five different colors. In each house lives a person with a different nationality. These five owners drink a certain drink, smoke a certain brand of cigar, and keep a certain pet. Yet no owners have the same pet, smoke the same brand of cigar, or drink the same drink.

Now, given the following information...

- the Brit lives in the red house
- the Swede keeps dogs as pets
- the Dane drinks tea
- the green house is on the left of the white house
- the green house owner drinks coffee
- the person who smokes Pall Mall rears birds
- the owner of the yellow house smokes Dunhill
- the man living in the house right in the center drinks milk
- the Norwegian lives in the first house
- the man who smokes blends lives next to the one who keeps cats
- the man who keeps horses lives next to the one who smokes Dunhill
- the owner who smokes Bluemaster drinks beer
- the German smokes prince
- the Norwegian lives next to the blue house
- the man who smokes blend has a neighbor who drinks water
My question is --- who owns the fish?

Einstein wrote this quiz last century. He said that 98% of the world could not figure it out.
Now, don't go peeking at it just yet...try to figure it out first.
The answer is here, so don't go posting your answer in the comments and ruin the fun for everyone else. But let me know if you got it.
It took me about half an hour to figure it out.

W00t! I r0x0r j00r s0x0rz! Got it in around 30mins.

Unfortunately, that was while stone cold sober (sobriety is one of the harmful side-effects of antibiotics), so I can't brag about solving it while triz-zashed.
