    This is the best Canadian Brain Teaser I have ever seen.
    It is a "How is this done?" type of teaser!!

    A person is given thirteen 3 inch nails.
    One nail is hammered into a block of wood and sits perfectly vertical with about 2.75 inches remaining out of the block.
    The person is asked to mount the remaining 12 nails atop the vertical nail.
