Corker (Posted on 2006-10-02) Difficulty: 2 of 5
Take a glass that is partially filled with water and drop a cork into it. The cork won't float in the center, but keeps drifting to one side and attaching itself to the side of the glass.

Without swirling the water, how can you make the cork float in the center?

Yes, I am sometimes a foolish American who assumes the whole world wants to be just like us because we are clearly superior in every way.  Hey, at least you have the internet over there.

I assumed Cheerios (the little rings of oat breakfast cereal) was marketed worldwide because they are ubiquitous here.  They are probably in the top 3 cereals by sales in the US.  Froot Loops is also well known here.
