    It's a sunny day. Children are outside playing marbles with each other. Smiling and cheering.

    Beside the children you have this man observing the sky. Observing for a few minutes and suddenly he saw this
    big bird in the sky and immediately, he knew what the bird was looking for. So he took out his magic cup.

    Walk to the children and put it there, he then fill it with water. Once filled, the cup is half-full.

    The bird in the sky saw the cup of water it then fly to it.

    The children were amaze as they watch the bird drink the water.

    NOTE: The cup is heavy. it cannot be lift.
    The length of the cup is about 12 inch. and 4inch wide. The bird's head cannot fit in the cup. Its mouth cannot
    reach the water.

    >>>How did the bird drink the water?<<<

    well, there are mulitple possibliltys. It could have dropped marbles into the cup to drink it.

    or the bird could have flown into the side, tipping it over and drinking from it.

    or, since it is a magically cup, the upper half was empty and not the bottom, so it was easy for the bird to drink from it.

    so, what do i win? lol;)

    but in this cause it's the marble.
