    Einsteins Riddle

    Don't spoil the answer for others!

    Here's Einsteins Riddle, a pretty complex riddle which is solved using association. Personally, I used an excel spreadsheet to solve it and it took longer than I expected. Only about 2% of the worlds population can solve this on their own. Below is the riddle, have fun.


    Code:
    There are no tricks, just pure logic, so good luck and don't give up. 
    
    1. In a street there are five houses, painted five different colours. 
    2. In each house lives a person of different nationality 
    3. These five homeowners each drink a different kind of beverage, smoke different brand of cigar and keep a different pet. 
    
    THE QUESTION: WHO OWNS THE FISH? 
    
    HINTS 
    
    1. The Brit lives in a red house. 
    2. The Swede keeps dogs as pets. 
    3. The Dane drinks tea. 
    4. The Green house is next to, and on the left of the White house. 
    5. The owner of the Green house drinks coffee. 
    6. The person who smokes Pall Mall rears birds. 
    7. The owner of the Yellow house smokes Dunhill. 
    8. The man living in the centre house drinks milk. 
    9. The Norwegian lives in the first house. 
    10. The man who smokes Blends lives next to the one who keeps cats. 
    11. The man who keeps horses lives next to the man who smokes Dunhill. 
    12. The man who smokes Blue Master drinks beer. 
    13. The German smokes Prince. 
    14. The Norwegian lives next to the blue house. 
    15. The man who smokes Blends has a neighbour who drinks water.
    Feel free to post thoughts and discussion about it, just try not to spoil it.

    Das Leben ist ein schlechtes Geschäft. Warum? Es kostet so viel Mühe zu überleben. Und was ist der Lohn? Nur der Tod.

    Took me 20 minutes to solve, was easier when I stole DarkstaR's idea and used a spreadsheet.

    Just solved it. Riddle was more difficult than I thought.
    Weird that I've never seen this thread before.
