    Lightbulb The Official Riddle Thread

    A thread made for Brain-Tanglers and riddles. Post any riddle or brain teasers you find interesting, or have a problem solving. Let's start...


    1) What is yours but is used by everyone else ?

    2) What is bought just to be thrown away ?

    3) Here's a challenge:

    There are 2 guardians at the crossroad of life... and 2 doors. One leads to death, and one leads to life... One guardian is always lying, and the other is always telling the truth.

    What single question to ask so we get the correct answer which door leads to life, whoever we ask? You can ask that question only once. To one guardian only, of course.

    1) Your name

    2) Rubbish bags

    3) An excellent riddle from an excellent movie. If you ask one door what the other door would say, never mind which one's truthful or lying, you will automatically get the lie as the answer by default.

    1) I'm not sure, you'll have to check with whers, he gave me that one.

    2) Think again. I thought Rubbish bags myself as soon as I saw it.

    3) And yes, that's the answer. Brilliant stuff. Props.

    The Einstein Test


    Einstein give us a puzzle like this, for he stressed examining assumptions, and once wrote: "The important thing is to not stop questioning."

    The Facts:

    1) There are 5 houses in 5 different colours

    2) In each house lives a person with a different nationality..

    3) These 5 owners drink a certain beverage, smoke a certain brand of cigar and keep a certain pet.

    4) No owners have the same pet, smoke the same brand of cigar or drink the same drink.


    The Hints:

    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 on the left of the white house.

    5) The green house owner 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 house right in the centre drinks milk.

    9) The Norwegian lives in the first house.

    10) The man who smokes Blend lives next to the one who keeps cats.

    11) The man who keeps horses lives next to the man who smokes Dunhill.

    12) The owner 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 Blend has a neighbour who drinks water.


    The Question:

    Who keeps the fish?



    2% of the world's population can do this correctly under 15 minutes, with a help of a pen and a paper.

    The Norweigian keeps the fish because keeping fish is gay.

    A man is riding an automobile with his son inside. They have a vehicular accident. The father is morbidly wounded. His son is alive but is in critical condition. He is brought to the hospital and prepared for surgery. The surgeon is about to operate, but then looks at the boy and says, I cant operate on this boy. Hes my son.
