Einstein's Riddle

I found this riddle in my post today. It took me about 10 minutes plus an excel sheet to figure it out. Apparently Einstein himself made this riddle and he said that 98% of the world population would not be able to solve it. So this means that I'm part of the 2% that can. Are you?

Here's the riddle:
1. In a street there are five houses, painted in five different colours.
2. In each house lives a person of different nationality.
3. These five homeowners each drink a different beverage, smoke different brand of ciggies, and keep different pets.


1. The Brit lives in a red house.
2. The Swede owns a dog.
3. The Dane drinks tea.
4. The green house is next to, and to the left of the white house.
5. The owner of the green house drinks coffee.
6. The person who smokes Pall Mall owns a bird.
7. The owner of the yellow house smokes Dunhill.
8. The man living in the center drinks milk.
9. The Norwegian lives in the first house.
10. The man who smokes blends lives next to the one who owns a cat.
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 neighbor who drinks water.

You can always Google the answer...

Found it too, but Einstein probably ment that the 2% can do it in the head and without Excel ^_^
