1) A black man, dressed in black, is crossing a road. He's blind and deaf. A truck is speeding towards him, with its lights turned off. The street lamps are also off and there's no moonlight. When the truck is about to hit the man, the driver hits the brakes and manages to stop just a few centimetres from him. How did the driver see the man?
2) A man walks into a bar and says "I want a coffee and a glass of water. But make sure the coffee is boiling hot and the water is ice-cold." The barman says "Sure thing, mr. fireman." The barman had never met him before. How did he know the man was a fireman?
