Romeo and Juliet
Romeo and Juliet are found dead on the floor in a bedroom. When they were discovered, there were pieces of glass and some water on the floor. The only furniture in the room is a shelf and a bed.

Carnival Trick
A boy was at a carnival and went to a booth where a man said to the boy, “If I write your exact weight on this piece of paper then you have to give me \$50, but if I cannot, I will pay you \$50.”

The boy looked around and saw no scale so he agrees, thinking no matter what the carny writes he’ll just say he weighs more or less.

In the end the boy ended up paying the man \$50. How did the man win the bet?

The man did exactly as he said he would and wrote “your exact weight” on the paper.

E. Nigma. Your riddle is has a bit of a problem…the problem is: You shouldn’t say he left town on friday then returns on friday. It should be he left town on friday and somehow returns by friday.
Then it makes more sense and becomes alot more complicated.

Four men sat down to play.
They played all night till break of day.
They played for gold and not for fun.
With separate scores for everyone.
When they had come to square accounts,
If no one lost, how could all gain?

They were musicians

1# A guy lives on the 34th floor of an apartment building and everyday he always takes the elevator down to got to work.When the day’s over and he comes back home he goes the the elevator and presses the 15th button, gets off on that floor, and walks the rest of the way back up to his apartment without making any stops.
Why didn’t he just press the 34th button?

He’s too short to reach the 34 button

2# A girl is stuck in a metal room with no windows or any way of getting out except a door that is locked.
In that room is a table, piano, saw and bat.
Since the girl was very smart she found out a way to use each of these items to get herself out and also one way of getting out with just using herself.
There are four ways. What are they?

a)She can swing the bat three times and then she’s “out”.
b)She can use a piano “key”.
c)She can saw the table in half to make two halves and then put them together and she’ll have a “whole” (hole).
d) she runs around the room until she wears herself “out”

3# An old rich man was counting all of his money when he got a phone call. He put it all away except for one one-hundred dollar bill so he could test wether or not his staff were trust worthy. When he came back he noticed it was gone and he asked the maid if she had seen it. She said yes and that she had put it in a cabinet so as for safe keeping.
They checked but it was gone. They asked the cook if he had seen it and said yes and that he had put it underneath a vase as for safe keeping. They checked but it was gone. They asked the butler if he had seen it and he said yes and that he had put it in a book between the pages 5 & 6 for safe keeping.
It was gone. They asked tha gardener and he said he hadn’t seen it at all. Who stole the money?

you can not put anything between the pages of five and six.

#4There’s a fox, a bag of seed, and a chicken across the river from the farm. You have a boat that can carry you and one other item. The fox can’t be left alone with the chicken and the chicken can’t be left alone with the seed. How do you get them all across?

You take the chicken across, bring the seed across, take the chicken back, bring over the fox and return for the chicken again.

#5brothers and sisters I have none, that man’s father is my father’s son

the man is his son

the first riddle is kind of stupid… if it’s developed enough to hatch after 3 days it would by per definition have both meat and bones (if not on the outside) in that egg. aside from that an egg can’t walk

You drive a bus from destination to destination. There are 5 stops along the way.
On the first stop 8 people get on the bus.
On the second stop 3 people get off while 7 more get on.
on the third no one get on or off the bus.
on the fourth stop. 5 people get off the bus and 1 get on.
on the fifth stop everyone get off.
who drove the bus?

I think “you” will know if you think about it :)

known scale riddle.

You have real gold coins where each weighs 10g. You also have fake coins where each weighs 9g. These are put in 10 bags. 10 in the first, 20 in the second, 30 in the third and so on. Only one of the bags are filled with the fake coins.
To help you find out you have a scale. However. You can only use this scale one time and one time only.
How do you find out which bag it is?

helping question if you don’t know this: What happens if you weigh all of the bags at the same time?

Shadow was vacationing on the Isle of Begile. On this island the natives always lie and the visitors always tell the truth. While walking along the beach, Shadow was approached by two ladies who introduced themselves as Josie and Cricket. Cricket said to Shadow, “I am a native, but Josie is a visitor.” Are the two ladies both natives, both visitors, or one of each?

30. Shaun Says:
October 1st, 2010 at 2:27 pm

They must be one of each, as if one of them says she is a native then she is a visitor and Josie is a native and if she is a visitor she is telling the truth – either way – they are one of each

To riddle number one…how could it walk away, he went into the field to *eat* something, why would he wait three days? it should be in his stomach not walking!

33. reefer Says:
October 22nd, 2010 at 6:20 pm

#29: If Cricket were a native, she would have said, “I am a visitor”. That would have been a lie! If the same question had been asked to Josie, SHE would have said, “I am a visitor”. This problem has no solution.

@ #29 they are both natives. It says that natives ALWAYS lie, but it doesn’t say they dont say some true things. cricket is telling the truth when saying she is a native, but telling a lie when saying that josie is a visitor which makes her entire statement a lie, even though a part of it is true

Ok some of these are not riddles. Some are just dumb jokes and some have more than one answer. There are also the idiots like #36 who cannot think more than your average potato.
