    Default Brain Scramble!

    Here is a brain teaser below that I hope you haven't heard already. Try not to read other people's post before you answer.

    A son and his father were in a car when the engine died in the middle of the railway cross. Despretly, the father tried to start the engine again as the oncoming train beared down on them to no avail. The father was killed and the son was sent to the hospital.

    At the hospital, the surgeon was expecting a normal routine, but on seeing the boy, the surgeon goes pales and mutters: "I can't operate on him. He's my son."

    How could that be??

    I will give rep to the first few people with the right answer and also people who has an interesting answer too

    The doctor was the boys stepfather

    I think I've read too many sporkings of awful fanfiction- after posting, I spent five minutes trying to think of logical explanations and everything kept coming back to bloody mpreg. Damn you, internet!

    Yeah that's the whole point of the brain teaser. It's that your brain will automatically assume all surgeons are male, so that confuses you even more!

    I don't think it's necessarily about gender. The "How could this be?" gives the impression that it's a much more complex solution than it actually is. It's creating the illusion of eliminating the obvious answer.

    Perhaps a little from column A and a little from column B. If something is presented to me as a brain teaser, I'm going to be more aware that the answer is likely right in front of me. I could be among a minority in thinking that way, though.

    On the other hand, from personal experience, people DO tend to assume people in the medical field are male. I work in a pharmacy. Every day I am faced with people who have trouble grasping that we have FEMALE pharmacists on our staff. And even my coworkers, when questioning a customer about their doctor, tend to refer to the doctor as "he" prior to establishing gender.
