Arange the numbers 1 through 15 in the boxes below so that the sums of numbers in adjacent squares are always perfect squares.

*drumroll* I got some more riddles today!

1. Two Major League Baseball teams (MLB, current rosters) are playing in an important game. The winner of the game won, however, without a single man crossing home plate. The game was played to a full nine innings, and did not end in a draw or forfeit. How is this possible?

2. In a top secret mission, an astronaut from Earth makes first contact on a small distant planet inhabited by beings that look almost, but not completely, entirely unlike a model of Rutherford B. Hayes made from cellophane and bubble wrap. The astronaut would like to count them all. To make his job easier, the astronaut divides the planet into 1,000 identical squares with an area of approximately one square mile. Then, he divides these squares into more squares measuring 20 feet by 20 feet. In each of the smaller squares there are three organisms. How many aliens are on the planet? (calculators are allowed)

3. One man makes a bet with a blind man. He bets the blind man that he can enter a room, pour ice cubes out of a glass and replace them with ginger ale, and leave, without the blind man knowing. (The blind man is in the room through this process). The blind man ends up losing a large sum of money over this bet. How did the first man successfully win the bet? (Hint: The blind man is NOT deaf)

4. Five men are lying dead in a room. The other contents of the room are a table, six chairs, and a hook on one of the walls. The men were not murdered. How did they die?

1. It was a woman's team
2. 150000 organisms. (H2g2 quote? "Almost, but quite, entirely unlike tea"?)
3. I dunno
4. A very strange form of suicide.

Robodude: All wrong. I threw in the H2G2 reference but it's not relevant.

The ice cubes were actually made of frozen ginger ale. They melted.
