The riddle thread!

Recommended Posts

The dog waits until January when the river freezes over. Meanwhile, the man gets tired of waiting, leaves and buys himself a cat, who is smarter than to get anywhere near the river.

The End.

My turn. If a rooster is on the top of a barn (in the middle where the roof slants on both sides) and lays an egg, which way does it roll?

Okay. There is a room with no windows. Inside this room are 3 lightbulbs. Outside the room, 3 switches that activate these lightbulbs. You can do whatever you want with the switches, but how can you tell which switch activates which lightbulb by going in and checking the room only once?

(No leaving the door open or any tricks.)

Another one that's not technially a riddle. How can you draw this image in one continuous line (with a pencil/pen, not Paint.NET :) ) without crossing any lines or doubling back over any previously-drawn lines?

Light bulbs radiate heat. Turn two on and wait a few minutes. After which, turn only one switch off, head into

the room.

Switch 1)

The switch left on has the light on

Switch 2) (the one you turned off) would have a warm bulb associated with it.

Switch 3) The one that was never touched would have the cool bulb.

Riddle? Beats me. Its close enough.

Ok...

You are in a room with two computers, and two doors.

If you open one door you instantly die, the other you live happily ever after.

One computer ALWAYS tells the truth, the other ALWAYS lies.

Edit: You don't know which computer lies, and you don't know which one tells the truth.

You are allowed to ask ONE question to either computer.

What question would you ask?

**You have to get out of the room, the only way to do so is through the given two doors.

***One question. NOT one question per computer.

(Capitalization is to add imphasis to the pertaining words. Not to show anger, or frustration.)

(Please excuse the ideology that computers can interpret, and comprehend a question as people can. A bit of personification, never hurt anyone.)

:wink:

I would ask the never-liying computer, "What is the best thing I should do to have plenty of money and be the happiest person ever?"

That way not only I'm pretty sure to survive, but i'll be pretty happy!
