    Four men are in a boat. They have three cigarettes, but no matches. How did they manage to smoke?

    Either one of them was already on fire, or one wore glasses and used the lens reflecting the sunlight to start it?

    LMAO! You guys are giving me a heartattack. There is no fire in or around the boat, and everyone has 20/20 vision.

    they ripped off some of the boards from the boat and made a ruimentary fire starter and barely got their ciragettes lighted before they were extingished by the water in the now-sinking boat....

    Is it like one we had before about a saw and mirror in a room? If so, I would say they threw the non smoker in (3 cigs, 4 people), the boat got a little lighter, and they used the lighter to light the cigs. Its the only thing I can think of that would possibly work as appearently no one was on fire. Probably the guy they threw in was the rower, since he doesnt smoke he can actually breathe and row. Now they will die at sea. lol, yeah at this point Im stabbing at anything remotely possible, its a toughie Z.
