There is one sure way to keep water from comng into your home. What is it?

So that's my blow-the-weekly-question this time 'round. It's 6th grade homework time, and I've helped the kid with all the other stupid "logic" puzzles. This one I can't remember.

It's in a league with other zingers like:

Q. What animal can jump as high as a house?
A. Any animal - houses don't jump

Q. What can you put in a bucket to make it weigh less?
A. A hole.

Sharkfu's was the answer when my old boss used to put "puzzles" on the breakroom wall. Seconding that.

Response by poster: Thanks guys. Worth the $5. Again. I'd even made it to the page referenced by netbros, but hadn't followed the German well enough to find the answer. (Actually, I lost patience before I even found my specific question.)

My kid looks like the genius again.

I just want to say that the correct answer to #95 from the site netbros linked to is: the side that was facing the sun.
