A Problem 98% Of You Can't Solve

I was browsing digg when I came over the famous Zebra puzzle, except it was reworked a little bit. It's been said that Einstein claims 98% of the population can't solve it. Let's see if you can
  1. The Brit lives in a red house.
  2. The Swede keeps dogs as pets.
  3. The Dane drinks tea.
  4. The Green house is next to, and on the left of the White house.
  5. The owner of the Green house drinks coffee.
  6. The person who smokes Pall Mall rears birds.
  7. The owner of the Yellow house smokes Dunhill.
  8. The man living in the centre house drinks milk.
  9. The Norwegian lives in the first house.
  10. The man who smokes Blends lives next to the one who keeps cats.
  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 neighbour who drinks water.
To get you started on the right path, try making a table like this:
After this has been up for a while, I'll post the solution and what I did to get there...

Hey! I solved it in 14 minutes. I wondered if I got it right. I love these things. I always have so much fun doing them. I just wish I could find harder ones that would take me longer. Or, like a whole book of them so I'd have them for a while. :)
