    for the intelligent ones....

    right, since there aint been a post on here for a while i fought i'd gave everyone a challenge.
    so heres a little mind puzzle (i spent 2 solid days before i figured it out)

    right so here goes, there's four people standing in a line, A, B, C and D.
    between A and B there is a brick wall so A can't see BCD.
    all four of them are facing the wall and they can't turn around.
    A and C are wearing white hats, where B and D are whearing black hats. and they CANNOT see what hat they are wearing
    all 4 of them know that the 4 of them is standing in them positions and facing them directions. they also know that there is 2 people wearing black hats and 2 people wearing white.

    (heres a little picture to illistrate this)



    the arrows are the direction the people are facing in.

    the question-
    to win some game, a person will need to shout out the colour of the hat he's wearing.
    the people cannot turn around, or interact with each other in any way.
    after 10mins one of them cleverly shouts out the right colour of their hat.

    who is it?
    and why was he 100% certain of his colour?

    (NOTE- there is no trick in this, and i will give you all a hint every day untill you could figure it out.)

    1st hint- A and B can only see the wall, C can see B, and D can see B and C.

    sorry for DP, but i forgot to mention that the 4 people know about the scenario.
    all 4 of them know that the 4 of them is standing in them positions and facing them directions. they also know that there is 2 people wearing black hats and 2 people wearing white.

    EDIT: if no-one gets it, i will reveal the answer in...... 5days?
