Riddle of the day: "The Dragon and the Knight"
There is a magical yet deserted island far far away from our quaint mountain hamlet of Durango, Colorado. On this (semi) deserted island live one Knight and one Dragon. They have been living together on this island for hundreds of years and have finally grown quite tired of each other. It is time for one of them to get to steppin'. They decide that the most fair way to decide which one has to ship out is through a battle of wits. On this island, there happens to be 12 lakes, numbered 1-12, all with poisonous water. If you drink the water from any lake, you will die. The ONLY antidote is to drink from a lake numbered higher than the lake you previously drank from. So, if you drank from lake #1, you can drink from lakes 2-12 to survive. The only catch is that lake #12 is located high up on a basin and only the dragon can fly to it.
The battle of wits goes like this: The dragon and the knight show up at dawn and serve each other a cup of water. Whomever survives, gets to stay, obviously, because the other will be dead. Who wins and how so?
