Theres probably a thread floating around and if there is could the mods maybe merge it? But anyway, let's see what riddles people have got floating around. I'll start.

It was pouring rain and a man pushed his car to a hotel. When he arrived he realised he was completely out of money. Why?

Kinda easy one but it's good to start of slow non?

He was playing monopoly...
My turn:
I'm more powerful than God.
I'm more evil than the devil.
The poor have me.
The rich need me.
If you eat me, you'll die.
What am I?

Nothing. My turn.

It is said among my people that some things are improved by death. Tell me, what stinks while living but in death smells good?

What is it?

The one who makes it sells it.
The one who buys it doesn't use it.
The one who's using it doesn't know he's using it.
What is it?

Counterfit Money.

EDIT: Darkness probably got it. On a side-note, no using google or anything to answer the riddles. That is full of fail act ok? Only rule.

I turn polar bears white
and I will make you cry.
I make guys have to pee
and girls comb their hair.
I make celebrities look stupid
and normal people look like celebrities.
I turn pancakes brown
and make your champane bubble.

Can you guess the riddle?

I was thinking coffin, but the money thing works too I guess.

Through google-fu I know the answer, but since that is fairly pathetic I shall not post it.

Pressure is the only thing I can think of that possibly works.

A man is trapped in a room with no doors or windows that has 4 enclosed walls, floor and ceiling. The only things in there with him are a table and a mirror. How does he escape?

You are trapped in a room with two doors, one leads to freedom and one leads to a painful and messy death. There is a guard in front of each door, one will always tell the truth, the other will always lie, you don't know which guard is in front of which door. You can only ask the guards one quest to find out which door leads to freedom, what question do you ask?

oh and Insane Juggler, that riddle is a favorite of my mums, but I'm just two damn tired to work out the answer, its just out of reach...

Knox

Insane juggler: The same way he got in? Either that or break the mirror to find out if it was two-way mirror if so he can now escape.

Jon

Do you know the answer to this question?

The Wizard
08-14-2008, 01:55 PM
Insane Juggler: Break the mirror in half, two halves make a whole, whole sounds like hole escape through the hole? Eh, think that one actually involved an apple and a knife, but whatever.

Jenkins: No. I can't answer the riddle. ;)

A man rides into town on monday, stays three days at the inn and leaves on monday. How is that possible?

Knox: You fail. -_-

Mindless

His horse is named Monday.

A metal neither black nor red
As heavy as man's golden greed
What you do to stay ahead
With friend or arrow or steed

A blond woman walks into a hair salon with a MP3 player. She is asked to take off the headphones but doesn't respond. When the woman that suppose to do her hair take the headphones off her head - the blond falls and dies. why?

Jon
08-14-2008, 02:37 PM
Because without the headset telling her to breath she forgot to. ;)

Close. The man looks into the mirror. He sees what he saw. He saws the table into 2 halves. 2 halves make a whole; the man climbs through the hole.

I have a riddle! I have a riddle!

Three guys go into a sauna. One with a book, one with a thermos flask, one with an mp3 player and one with nothing at all (lol no towel DX ). A few minutes later, there is a shout from the mist. Everyone rushes to where the shout originated from to find that the man who brought nothing has been stabbed to death and is lying in a puddle of water. Whodunit?

Inquisition
08-14-2008, 07:02 PM
Stabbed to death. >_> Where's the blood, faggot?

Also, the thermos dude did it.

Grubdubdub
08-14-2008, 07:03 PM
The one with the Mp3, how did he heard the shout?
but you said 3 people and there were 4...

The Wizard
08-14-2008, 07:04 PM
There was blood. -_- And how did the thermos guy do it? There were no knives or swords in the sauna.

The one with the Mp3, how did he heard the shout?
but you said 3 people and there were 4...There were four guys, a mistake on my part. Four, not three. And maybe his mp3 player broke because of the steam. I don't fucking know, do I? -_-

EDIT: Inq got the right guy (one with the thermos), but HOW did he do it?

EDIT 2:

<Oz> Nope
<Inquisition> In the thermos.
<Grubdubdub> a big black dick?
<Oz> No
<Oz> Stabbed
<Grubdubdub> it was suicide
<Knox> .....Ice knife. Only possible way.
<Oz> Holy shit Knox is right
<Oz> XD
<Knox> LOL
<Oz> Congratulations
<Oz> :P

Grubdubdub

a stupid one.

if:

1=5
2=25
3=125
4=625
5=?

what is ?

Juggler
08-14-2008, 07:20 PM
That's math, not riddles.

5 to the power of 5 = 3125

Grubdubdub
08-14-2008, 07:21 PM
no, you wrong boy.

Gullible
08-14-2008, 07:33 PM
? = 5


Thats the only way I can see it work.

ie. "?" is 5

The Wizard
08-14-2008, 07:34 PM
? is a question mark.

Grubdubdub
08-14-2008, 07:40 PM
? = 5


Thats the only way I can see it work.

ie. "?" is 5

lol... nice try, but no...

Juggler
08-14-2008, 07:45 PM
5=1

as you said at the beginning.

Snarf
08-14-2008, 07:49 PM
The beginning of your question was 1=5, so of course 5=1.

Ninja Edit: Damn you, Juggler. I got take a piss and think about it for half a second and when I come back you've answered it.

Ahh, clever, I was thinking algebra style and missed the simple one at the start.

Sorrows
08-16-2008, 10:53 AM
ooh ooh I have a really old one :)

I have 4 legs in the morning, 2 legs in the afternoon and 3 legs in the evening, what am I?

kalantha

Lady Sorrows: The shadow of a four legged animal?

Grubdubdub
08-16-2008, 11:14 AM
Baby (crawls), grown up (walks), elder (walks with a cane). AKA, a person.

Sorrows
08-16-2008, 01:42 PM
Bingo although Kalantha's guess was pretty damn inventive.



Pronounced as one letter,
And written with three,
Two letters there are,
And two only in me.
I'm double, I'm single,
I'm black, blue, and gray,
I'm read from both ends,
And the same either way.
What am I?

Juggler
08-17-2008, 09:12 AM
I thought W, but no, it isn't pronounced as one.

The Wizard

Eye.

Here's one I did a few years ago. Have fun.

- In a street there are five houses, painted five different colours.
- In each house lives a person of different nationality.
- These five homeowners each drink a different kind of beverage, smoke different brand of cigar and keep a different pet.


The riddle is: Who owns the fish?


Necessary clues:


1. The British man lives in a red house.
2. The Swedish man keeps dogs as pets.
3. The Danish man drinks tea.
4. The Green house is next to, and on the left of the White house.
5. The owner of the Green house 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 centre house drinks milk.
9. The Norwegian lives in the first house.
10. The man who smokes Blends lives next to the one who keeps cats.
11. The man who keeps horses lives next to the man who smokes Dunhill.
12. The man who smokes Blue Master drinks beer.
13. The German smokes Prince.
14. The Norwegian lives next to the blue house.

All of them, he was dead before he entered the room. The man with the mp3 player used that to simulate a shout from the dead guy.

The Wizard
08-17-2008, 10:51 AM
Erm... Actually, Aekiel, wrong.

EDIT: Inq got the right guy (one with the thermos), but HOW did he do it?

EDIT 2:

<Oz> Nope
<Inquisition> In the thermos.
<Grubdubdub> a big black dick?
<Oz> No

<Knox> LOL
<Oz> Congratulations

Dude with the thermos had a knife made of ice in it so it wouldn't melt. Stabbed the other dude and the ice melted in the steam when he dropped it.
