Research on neuroplasticity shows that when we use our brains, we actually create new connections and neural pathways! So solving problems is actually kind of like mental aerobics, building up your brain. There are lots of fun ways to work out your brain, of course, and once in a while it’s good to really do some stretching!
Try out these brain teasers (via BrainDen.com) to extend your brainpower.

Honestants and Swindlecants
There are two kinds of people on a mysterious island: The Honestants, who always speak the truth, and the Swindlecants, who always lie.
Three fellows (A, B and C) are having a quarrel at the market. A foreigner goes by and asks the A fellow: "Are you an Honestant or a Swindlecant?" The answer is incomprehensible so the foreigner asks B: "What did A say?" B answers: "A said that he is a Swindlecant." And to that says the fellow C: "Do not believe B, he is lying!"
Who are B and C?
