these are quite easy, but should keep you guys bussy till I find a better one:

copy the next two immages into paint and draw the anwers.

http://www.puzzle.dse.nl/puzimg/gaswaterelectricity.gif

there are three houses (house a, b, and c) and three plants
(a water plant W, an electr(dont know how to spell the rest) plant E, and a gas plant G.)

the houses have to be connected to the plants, but the lines can't cross eachother. how is this done?

http://www.puzzle.dse.nl/puzimg/1to16.gif

you have 16 numbers, from 1 to 16. each number has to be fitted in somewhere in the picture, but the sum of the numbers in each of the 7 lines has to be 29.

forgive my spelling mistakes that I have made allmost certainly, post anny questions if you don't understand something about the riddle.

Ok, I found a great one (I'd be sad if someone solved this right away so go easy on me maria.)

Egypt 1901, indiana jones searches trough a tomb he has discovered. he enters a small room when behind him a door falls out of nowhere to cover the only exit. he searches the room and finds a console with 10 numbers on it (numbered 0 to 9) and a sign under the console saying:

enter a 10 digit code to open the door, you can start by entering 0000000001 and then 0000000002, and continue doing this till you find the right combination. even if you would be able to enter a combination every second it would still take you a 100 years to escape muhahahaha.

indiana jones sits down and thinks about this...

an hour later he walks into the local bar and talks about the atventure with his friends.

the queation: how did he know the correct combination in such a short period of time?

I believe the code was 3153600000.

I won't say how I achieved this answer, that way if I'm right I won't spoil it for anyone else. I thought it was pretty easy by the way, took me about 30 seconds.

we have a winner here! although paint it black would have figured it out eventually too I guess.

every second 1 combination= 10^10/(3600*24*365,25)= over 316 years for all the combinations, the sign only sais 100 years.

100 years= (365*75+366*25)*24*3600= 3155760000

01-07-2006, 03:33 PM
How is it a paradox? It's true, so he was hanged.

A paradox would be "I will be drowned".

0r4ng3
01-07-2006, 03:35 PM
I'm pretty sure it is. "I will be hanged" is simple. It was the truth, so he was hanged. It ends there.

What's an executioner to do with "I will be drowned"? If it were true, it's false. If it's false, it's true.

Each strand burns in an hour, but not necessarily uniformly.
This part's stumping me. Not necessarily uniformly makes it difficult.

kami_mathieu
01-08-2006, 05:21 AM
this is what I would do: fold one strand twice so that its only a quarter of the length of what it was before, then use it to messure 3/4 of the other strand, then pull of (bite of, cut of or something like that) 1/4 of the other strand and light the 3/4 strand and there you have it, 45 minutes?

I think its not the right answer as it is a bit crude but it could work.
if thats not it, hint please.

kami_mathieu
01-14-2006, 07:15 AM
live riddle thread, LIVE!

I've been thinking about your riddle maria, here's the answer: light one strand at one end and the second one at both ends, then when the strand lighted at both ends (after half an hour) burns up, light the other end of the other strand. burning the last strand up should take 15 minutes. so 45 minutes of strand burning in total.

heres a new one:
Think of words ending in -GRY. Angry and hungry are two of them. There are only three words in the English language. What is the third word? The word is something that everyone uses every day. If you have listened carefully, I have already told you what it is.

I almost thought I had one, but "orgy" doesn't work.

Umm, "language" doesn't end in "gry". At least, last time I checked, it didn't.

Most likely this is already on here somewhere on this thread. but i like it, because most of the time my friends are to stupid to answer it right, so let see if offspring fans can! :p


A says the B always tells the truth, B says a always lies.

Who is telling a lie, and who is telling the truth? :)

All About Eve
01-15-2006, 02:41 AM
I think you did that riddle wrong somehow. If A tells the truth, and says B always tells the truth, that means that B's statement about A always lying would be true, but that's a contradiction, and can not be. However, if A lies, it would mean B's statement is a lie, which is another contradiction because B's statement would be that A's lying which would be true, but A's statement doesn't support that.

Look at it from the other way. B always tells the truth, yet says A does. Doesn't work. B always lies and says that A always tells the truth, which is a lie, which means A would lie, but B already has.

If they're both telling the truth, A would be lying.

If they're both lying, B would be telling the truth.

It doesn't work.

01-15-2006, 02:44 AM
Yeah, that's just a variation of the old "The statement on the other side of the paper is true/the statement on the other side of the paper is false" gag. It's a paradox, not a riddle.

I've got one which is not too bad methinks coz it's midway between riddle & actual mathematics. Logic however, should not pertain solely to the mathematical domain.

Chess Tournament

Parkov meets Kirschoff. Will be declared the winner the one who wins >2 consecutive contests, or 3 (not necessarily consecutive).
What time should we affix to one contest so that the whole tournament is over within 6 hours? What will be the tournament's average length?

good luck the head-bashers ;)

You could affix up to an hour and 12 minutes per contest, because the max contests would be 5. On the other hand, what do you mean by average length? You can't know that unless you know the individual times of each game.

the new one:
"I am the center of gravity, hold a capital situation in Vienna, and as I am foremost in every victory, am allowed by all to be invaluable. Though I am invisible, I am clearly seen in the midst of a river. I could name three who are in love with me and have three associates in vice.

yet another riddle added to marias long list, great job.

try this one, it should be just as easy.

Four jolly men sat down to play,
And played all night till break of day.
They played for cash and not for fun,
With a separate score for every one.
When it came time to square accounts,
they all had made quite fair amounts.
Now, not one has lost and all have gained -
Tell me now, this can you explain?

kami_mathieu
01-22-2006, 06:05 AM
your gonna hate me for the answer but... it actually whas a band. so I guess musicians whas correct.

now for a better one:
"Two grandmothers, with their two granddaughters;
Two husbands, with their two wives;
Two fathers, with their two daughters;
Two mothers, with their two sons;
Two maidens, with their two mothers;
Two sisters, with their two brothers;
Yet only six in all lie buried here;
All born legitimate, from incest clear."

Explain this - how is everyone related.

and can someone explain why this one is a riddle? I found it on a site somewhere but it's just to easy and obvious, whats the riddle about it?

"Explain the difference between a man going upstairs and a man looking upstairs."

answer: One man is stepping up the stairs, the other is staring up the steps.

01-24-2006, 06:50 AM
ok, I'll post the answer:

there are two widdows, who both have a son. then the widdows marry eachothers sons and both couples have a daughter. no incest here. (though kinda sick.)

next one:

"This is an unusual day, and so is this paragraph. How quickly can you find out what is so uncommon about it? It looks so ordinary that you may think nothing is odd about it until you match it with most paragraphs this long. If you put your mind to it, and study it, you will find out, but nobody may assist you. Do it without any coaching. Go to work and try your skill at figuring it out. Par on it is about half an hour.

Here's one:

A midget lives at the 10th floor of a building.
When it's sunny outside, he takes the elevator to ascend to the 6th floor, then he leaves the elevator and uses the stairs to reach his appartment at the 10th floor.
When it's rainy outside, though, he uses the elevator to ascend straight to the 10th floor.

Why does he do that?

the midget is so small he can only reach the "6"-button in the elevator, so he has to take the stairs from the 6th floor on
when it's rainy outside he's got an umbrella with him and is so able to reach the "10"-button

these are ancient riddles, someone probably allready knows the answer to them but a decent riddle thread should have these:

the riddle of the sphynx (or spinks... sfinx... whatever, its that egyptian thing thats half lion half woman.) so there's this egyptian dude walking along the desert when he walks into this creature, the creature says: "I'll let you live if you solve my riddle!" so the guy answers: "shure, I'm a smart guy so that's gonna be easy" "creature starts asking the riddle: "what creature walks on 4 legs at one time, on 2 legs the next, and on 3 legs before he dies? (so youre the egyptian, will you live?)

The next one is a modern version of the gaurdians riddle:
A hiker comes to a fork in the road and doesn't know which way to go to reach his destination. There are two men at the fork, one of whom always tells the truth while the other always lies. The hiker doesn't know which is which, though. He may ask one of the men only one question to find his way. Which man does he ask, and what is the question?

Y'know, I never understood that man/legs riddle until you put it in those words.

you ask one what the other one would say if you asked him where to go, if the one you asked says "right" you go left, if he says "left" you go right

let's says the left way is the one you must take:

you ask the liar what the other one would tell you and he answeres: "right" , because the other one would say left
if you ask the one who tells the truth he'll answer : "right" , because that's what the liar would say because he always lies
