Cigarette Bar Bet (Posted on 2003-10-15) Difficulty: 5 of 5
A cigarette is standing vertically on its butt. You cannot touch it with any object(solids, liquids or gases). That goes for the foundation also. How can you make it drop? Asking another person to do it does not count.

Simple ways are sometimes too obvious, but I say start a good old fashioned bar fight. It may be painful but that cigerette won't stand a chance.

Just shoot it. You aren't touching the bullet so technically you didn't touch it with anything.

More seriously this reminds me of a brain teaser from when I was a kid except for not being able to touch the foundation. The answer for that one was to hit a penny with another penny to move the a third one.
