The riddle thread
 
Here we can post our riddles and see if we can outsmart every Ahtonaut here. I'll start.

A man is ship-wrecked on a desert island. The only things he has in his possession are a flint, a can of lighter fuel, a penknife and a packet of cigarettes. How could he make a cigarette lighter?

Negative Sun 01-04-2007 08:44 PM

Collect some wood, rub some wood together, get a wee flame, throw some lighter fuel on it...Woosh, big flame, happy smoker:)

Jae Onasi 01-04-2007 08:46 PM

Cut the cigarette in half to make it lighter.

Rabish Bini 01-04-2007 08:54 PM

Sorry Negative Sun, Jae wins. Here's another:

What do you get if you divide 40 by a half and add 10 to the result?

CountVerilucus 01-04-2007 09:13 PM

90?

Person 1 makes something and sells it to person 2. Person 2 gives it to person 3. Person 3 has it and has put it to use, but doesnt know it. What did person 1 make?

ET Warrior 01-04-2007 10:01 PM

Well...the answer is a coffin, but generally it goes "The person who makes it doesn't want it, the person who buys it doesn't use it, and the person that uses it doesn't know it." Or something to that affect.

I've no riddles off the top of my head, though almost any riddle one can come up with these days is actually an old riddle that most people know...so riddle threads always seem futile.

HK-42 01-04-2007 10:27 PM

30? 40-half=20+10=30

SithRevan 01-04-2007 10:41 PM

I was never good at math so I would have to go with 12 but I am not sure about that answer. I do have a riddle for you guys though...

Why DIDN'T the chicken cross the road?

See if you can answer that one.

HK-42 01-04-2007 10:42 PM

It didn't want to.

EDIT: this is kinda a your opinon. What book would you take if your on a deserted island?

How ever it would be done it will not work. The penknife will more than likely be made of stainless steel and if so, flint and stainless steel can not produce a spark. It must be plain steel to work.

1.) 40/0.5+10= 90
2.) 0.5/40+10= 10.0125

RIDDLE
Investigators are at a crime scene. A woman was found dead on her bed with a pair of scissors next to her. The reports showed that the body did not have any cuts, stab wounds, marks, or bruises any where. How did she die?

The Seeker 01-05-2007 01:29 AM

Heh, movie buffs should get this one:

As I was going to St. Ives,
I met a man with seven wives
every wife had seven sacks
every sack had seven cats
every cat had seven kittens
kittens cats sacks and wives
how many went to St. Ives?

Bonus if you name the movie it came from.

One. Only I went to St. Ives.

However, I do not consider the riddle sequence in KOTOR1 (in the Mysterious Box) to be part of a movie. But I have heard it before, so I assume it is quite common. [Since KOTOR is not a movie, I do not get the bonus, sorry...]

Can't think of any riddles right now, but I will later.

Hayden Kered 01-05-2007 01:32 AM

Die Hard With A Vengeance

Answer is 1

Dark_Lady 01-05-2007 01:35 AM

I don't know what movie it came from, but one person was going to St. Ives, the one who's telling the riddle. The people he met were going away from St. Ives. Or, you could say none, assuming that the speaker isn't a kitten, cat, sack, or wife.

Here's one that I just remebered from when I was ten:
Railroad crossings without any cars. Can you spell that without any r's?

It has a head but never weeps,
has a bed but never sleeps.
It has a mouth but never talks
Always runs but never walks...

What is it? (should be fairly easy I think, I just like this one)

HerbieZ 01-05-2007 07:33 AM

A River.

You are in a car. To the left of you there is a drop, to the right is a helicopter moving at the same level as you. Behind you is a fire engine and infront of you is an elephant. What do you do to get out of this precarious situation.

Daft Adidas 01-05-2007 10:17 AM

A coffin (although I may be wrong, since something like this has already been said ;))

HerbieZ 01-05-2007 04:03 PM

I've got one:

You usually have two of them,
They usually dangle,
They come in many different shapes and colours...

WHAT ARE THEY? :smash:

You are in a cold house in the winter. It is dark. You have one match. There is a candle and there is a wood burning stove. Which do you light first?

Q: How do you get to Carnegie Hall?

Rabish Bini 01-07-2007 04:57 AM

@D'Albetot - The "How can you make a cigerette lighter?" Question's been answered. The answer was snap it in half or take some tobacco out of it.

@Bob Lion - Cause some carnage? "Canergie"

Here's another:

Who played for both England and France in a soccer match on the same afternoon at Wembley Stadium?"

Sam! 01-07-2007 05:27 AM

Get this one- Mr and Mrs Smith are going to a church to get married. They meet a river that goes for a million miles and its croc infested. How do they get across?

PS: They have no boat.
