Lets try riddles. I have a thread on pointless facts (some wrong) so I figured I would take my idea into riddles. If you can answer it, good for you, and if you can't then um, try harder.

I can sizzle like bacon,
I am made with an egg,
I have plenty of backbone, but lack a good leg,
I peel layers like onions, but still remain whole,
I can be long, like a flagpole, yet fit in a hole,
What am I?

Good luck!

Yea I think it was a snake... so how about this one:

A man and a wife go to lunch at a fast food restaurant. They both get the same size drinks, with the same amount of ice. The ice itself is tainted with poison. Both finish their drinks. The man lives, but his wife dies... why?

The wife gave the man a BJ under the table, and used his drink to wash it down.

WTF poisons ice?

Anyway, my WAG is that the wife let her ice melt and the husband did not.

Indeed. I'd never have to worry about this since my ice hardly melts. Hmmm... ok, another one: ^.^ (Quote is riddle, not an actual quote)

Quote:
Three men are travelling across country for quite a while. They decide to book a room for the night and continue on their way at dawn. When they walk into the hotel lobby, they're greeted by the Bellboy. The bellboy informs the men that the manager is away for a little bit, but he can assist them with whatever their needs may be. The total price of the room comes to $30. Each guy decides to pay with a $10 bill.

Some time later, the manager returns to realize the Bellboy charged the three men $5 too much. The manager then gives the bellboy 5 $1 bills and tells him to take it up the the 3 men. On the way up in the elevator, the Bellboy is busy trying to figure out how he's going to divid the money. He decides to pocket $2 for himself and give each man back just $1. Now lets do some math:

3 men get a room for $10 each, totalling $30 for the room. The bellboy gave each man back $1, so each man paid $9. Therefore, the 3 men paid a total of $27 for the room. After adding the $2 the bellboy took, the total price comes to $29. What happened to the last dollar?

Just one of those misconceptions of math. I figure that the dollar was never there or that it served no purpose.

30 - 3 = 27.....27 + 2 = 29

I don't know!

For the slow among you, there is no $27 + $2. The $2 is part of the $27. 27-2 = 25 + 5 that's returned is 30.

It's just an error in the formula.

Presto.

Very good... the math was flubbed up.

Should be:

Three men at $10 each is $30. Take away the $5 the manager gives the bellboy and you got $25. Add the $2 the bellboy takes, then the $1 to each man, and you'll get $30 again.

From a different angle, you don't add what the bellboy TAKES... you subtract it. $9 x 3 = $27, minues the two he took you get $25. Then add the $5 the manager GAVE the bellboy and you'll have the original $30.

Ok, here's another I can think of.

Quote:
A lady at a ball catches the eye of two different gentlemen. Both wanting to dance with the lady, she comes up with a solution to find the suiter. She proposes that the man who can fill her glass with water from the pitcher can have her dance. The catch is, the water cannot leave the pitcher. How does on go about winning the dance?

Well, the way you've phrased it droppinng her glass in the pitcher would solve it. I think you mean to add a cavet or two, however. I'll let someone else answer it.

hmmm... well, ya got that one too... now here's the last one I can dig up from the back of my brain... rather old, and rather common.

Quote:
A man has a chicken, some chicken feed and a fox. As this man is travelling, he comes across a river with no bridge in site. The only way to cross this river is with a bridge that can carry one item and himself. If the man leaves the Chicken with the Chicken feed, the chicken will eat the feed. However, if the man leaves the Chicken with the Fox, the Fox will eat the Chicken. How will this man get all three items across in their own individual selves?

What Smash said...

The water would leave the pitcher if you used a towel to slowly take the water from the pitcher.

But yep Smash is well the guy better then the next, his own title. Classic!

That has to be the oldest riddle in the history of riddles.

Except probably for some ancient greek philosopher riddle made to trick little boys into having sex with them.

Take chicken across.
Go and take fox across.
Take Chicken back, and bring the feed across.
Go back and get the chicken.

Very easy, very old, very pointless.

ok... got a good one.

"A news report from early May reports authorities found a prisoner set away for 6 months solitary dead. Authorities found tbe body slunched dead over a table. Upon leaning the prisoner into a seated position, authorities found a gapping hole in the prisoner's torso. On the flood was a puddle of blood and water.

Reports show the only thing in the room was a wooden bed, table and chair (which prisoner was found sitting in). Authorities suggest no murder could have taken place as the barred window was simply too small to fit a full body thru, nor were there any ranged weapons. It is a mystery that authorities are still working to unlock. More to come...."


I think thats good enough... figure out what happened.

Pardon the bump, but. . . .

As I was going to St. Ives I met a man with seven wives,
Each wife had seven sacks, each sack had seven cats,
Each cat had seven kits: kits, cats, sacks and wives,
How many were going to St. Ives?

Only you were going to St. Ives...

Here's another one I found good, though some may know already.

You're lost in the woods. Upon travelling down a path, you come across a fork in the road. One way leads deeper in the forest, the other way leads to town and your home. Sitting at the fork in the road is two men. One man is cursed to always lie while the other man is cursed to always speak the truth. After being told you have one question to ask only one of the men... what do you ask to find your way home?

Ask either man, "Which way will the other man tell me to go?"
There is a RP (right path) and WP (wrong path).
If you ask the liar, then the other man is the honest man and will tell you the RP. But, because you asked the liar, you'll be told the WP.
If you ask the honest man, the other man is the liar and will tell you the WP. Because he's the honest man, he will tell you the WP.
Either way, whichever answer you get is the WP. You take the other route.
It's a simple logical function: (FALSE & TRUE) = FALSE in any permutation.

(Never type while multislacking)

You have the logic a bit twisted on the 3 men in the hotel room. You can't take away the 2 bucks from the 27 because it makes no logical sence from the perspective of the 3 men.

Lets say you where one of the 3 men. The bell boy just arrived at your door and hands you 3 bucks. He says the front desk over charged you. So naturaly you give a buck to the other 2 and keep one for yourself. This means that out of your pocket you paid 9 dollars, and so did the other 2 gentlemen. That would equal 27. Thus you would think that the Hotel's room charge was 27 bucks. And then later if you found out the bell boy took 2 bucks you would then wonder where the other dollar was.

However the complete answer to this is not in taking 2 dollars out of the 27 because that is a trick of math, and will never add up right when you think harder about it. You must take the 27 bucks the guys paid and subtract the actual price of the room. There you will find the 2 bucks the bellboy took.
