Three men go to a cheap motel, and the desk clerk charges them a sum of $30.00 for the night. The three of them split the cost ten dollars each. Later the manager comes over and tells the desk clerk that he overcharged the men, since the actual cost should have been $25.00. The manager gives the bellboy $5.00 and tells him to give it to the men. The bellboy, however, decides to cheat the men and pockets $2.00, giving each of the men only one dollar.

Now each man has paid $9.00 to stay for the night, and 3 x $9.00 = $27.00. The bellboy has pocketed $2.00. But $27.00 + $2.00 = $29.00. Where is the missing $1.00? WTF?

each men paid $10, so 3 x $10 = $30
they each got $1 back, so 3 x $1 = $3
however, they should have each gotten $1.67 back since they need to split the $5 into three people, but the dickwad bellboy jacks $2, gypping $0.67 from each of the men, making a total profit of a whopping $2.

so technically, it's $25 (hotel fee) + $3 (money returned) + $2 (money dickwad bellboy stole) and you have your original total!!!

if you don't see my logic...i'll try to explain it in better terms later...it's bedtime for me.

So it's refllection right? Also snoflewis, i think I get what you're logic is. I mean, in the End it's the 25 for the night+3 given back to all of them + 2 dollars stolen = 30 dollars. ?

The answer is supposed to be "rainbow" but since you didn't copy the riddle down correctly and have instead asked for a "who" not a "what", rainbow cannot be the correct answer.

I don't think you can answer your own riddle.

Mate, I hate to point this out, but you're the one who is missing the point here, not the original poster.

Because the riddle is phrased around personifying whatever the thing is, phrased in a way where the thing / person is speaking (I am / I am not, etc), it's perfectly fine for the last line to say "who am I?".

If your logic were indeed correct, you'd have to apply it to every line of the riddle, and thus change the whole phrasing of the riddle.

Well, if that's what you have to do to make the riddle actually valid, then that's what you have to do. It doesn't change the fact that, since a rainbow is an inanimate object, it can't be a valid answer to a question to a question that asks "Who".

But it really doesn't matter. Riddles are generally wrong. They try to be too witty for their own good, and generally end up being just plain wrong (heck, even wikipedia has a section on "colored shadows")- answers that don't match the conditions except at first glance, and only when you look at them a certain way. So there's not much of a reason to point that out, since all riddles are like that and it's kind of their point, it's hard to be confusing and witty and funny and correct all at the same time.

You're walking throught a forest when you come upon two paths. You know one leads to hell and one leads to heaven, but you dont know which is which. Between the paths there is a house. Inside the house there are two brothers, they are twins. One ALWAYS lies and one ALWAYS tells the truth. You dont know which brother is which, they're identical. You can ask ONE question, and thats it. ONE question total. You're trying to find out which path is to heaven.

Uggh, I've heard this before, and now it's bugging me. Without sounding too pedantic, can you ask the one question to both people at once? is that the key? or do you have to ask only one question to one brother?

Lakoste

can you ask the one question to both people at once? is that the key? or do you have to ask only one question to one brother?
Without giving away the answer...
You can ask both brothers at the same time, although this method might be wrong
You can also ask one brother one question, and this method might also be wrong

Does that make sense? You can ask it two different ways, but only one way gets you the right answer

Confused enough:D

Three men go to a cheap motel, and the desk clerk charges them a sum of $30.00 for the night. The three of them split the cost ten dollars each. Later the manager comes over and tells the desk clerk that he overcharged the men, since the actual cost should have been $25.00. The manager gives the bellboy $5.00 and tells him to give it to the men. The bellboy, however, decides to cheat the men and pockets $2.00, giving each of the men only one dollar.

Now each man has paid $9.00 to stay for the night, and 3 x $9.00 = $27.00. The bellboy has pocketed $2.00. But $27.00 + $2.00 = $29.00. Where is the missing $1.00? WTF?

Good trick.
The thing is that when you have the $27 (9$ each PAYED) you dont have to ADD 2 $ from the bell boy, you have to DEDUCT those $2 to get 25 which is the real fee.
To reach the 30 bucks you have th following:

1) 10+10+10=30
2) 10+10+10=25 (real fee) +5 (overcharge)
3) 10 + 10 + 10 -5 = 25
Now lets split the overcharge
4) 10-1+10-1+10-1 - 2 =25

So, each guy payed 9 each (27) and the boy get the 2 extra dollars. The motel has its 25. Everybody happy, specially the bellboy.

Everybody happy, specially the bellboy.

Your solution is correct (I googled it earlier lol) but I doubt the manager would be happy if he knew the bellboy was a lying & theiving bellboy! ;)

OMG I FINALLY GOT IT WOULD BE
"Which door would your brother say is the door to heaven"

now let me explain before u say it wrong :(.......

if u ask the question to the liar
"which door would your brother say is the door to heaven?"
Well as u know the lair will lie. He knows his brother would tell the truth and point to heaven, but lies, so he is going to point to door hell.

if u ask teh question to the truth
"which door would your brother say is the door to heave?"
Well he will always tell the truth, he knows that his brother always lies, so he again is going to point to hell!!!

LEAVE HEAVEN!!!! AN OPEN PASS!!!

08-09-2006, 07:42 AM
wouldn't it be "what would your brother tell me if i asked him which way was heaven?"
the lying one would point to hell b/c his brother would tell you the way to heaven
and the honest one will point to hell b/c his brother would tell you the way to hell

so then the direction that they both pointed to would be hell which leaves the other path for heaven

Well as u know the lair will lie. He knows his brother would tell the truth and point to heaven, but lies, so he is going to point to door hell.

if u ask teh question to the truth
"which door would your brother say is the door to heave?"
Well he will always tell the truth, he knows that his brother always lies, so he again is going to point to hell!!!

LEAVE HEAVEN!!!! AN OPEN PASS!!!

"which door would your brother say is the door to heaven?"
Well as u know the lair will lie. He knows his brother would tell the truth and point to heaven, but Lenny lies, so he is going to point to door hell.

Correct, you had it close the very first time you guessed:D , the answer (in less words) is

What road does your brother think leads to heaven? Then take the opposite road of whatever the brother says to get to heaven

Here's a head scratcher guys...took me a good 15 minutes or so:



You are stuck in a room. All that is there is a slip of paper on a table, and many bottles. The only exit is guarded by a heat sensor that will not let you out. The only way out is to drink one of the bottles' contents, and the liquid will cool down your body heat (with no harm to yourself) enough so that the heat sensor doesn't detect you anymore. There are nine bottles on the ground beyond the table. The content of the slip of paper will tell you what each of the bottles are. Find out what all the bottles are, and then find out which one to drink to get out.

Three of me are poison, and will kill you if you drink.
Two of me are water, nothing bad will happen with these.
Two of me are wine, and it will only get you drunk.
One will heat you up forever, and this room will never let you out. (hinder)
Only one here will help you, it will cool down your body heat.
No medium bottles are poison.
Wine is bad in large doses, so none are large.
The two bottles at the end are the same.
No matter how help hides, it will be on poison's left side, but its left side is safe.
No two small bottles are the same.
The hinderer is harder, for it resides between wine and water.
The hinder bottle is large, so it works forever.
Neither big nor medium will save your life.
Poison is all you will get from the bottle on the far right.
Water is next to the helper.

Bottle Order:
Large--Small--Large--Medium--Small--Large--Medium--Large--Small


Figure out what each bottle is and which is the helper.

You are in a room you cannot leave. Seven bottles are on the table. One bottle contains a potion that will allow you to advance through the far door, another bottle contains a potion that will allow you to exit the way you entered. Three bottles contain poison. Two bottles contain wine. What is the order of the bottles from right to left? Which do you drink if you wish to advance and not retreat? Note: based on the clues given, there are eight possible solutions.

Danger lies before you, while safety lies behind,
Two of us will help you, whichever you would find,
One among us seven will let you move ahead,
Another will transport the drinker back instead,
Two among our number hold only nettle wine,
Three of us are killers, waiting hidden in line.
Choose, unless you wish to stay here forevermore,
To help you in your choice, we give you these clues four:
First, however slyly the poison tries to hide
You will always find some on nettle wine's left side;
Second, different are those who stand at either end,
But if you would move onward, neither is your friend;
Third, as you see clearly, all are different size,
Neither dwarf nor giant holds death in their insides;
Fourth, the second left and the second on the right
Are twins once you taste them, though different at first sight.

You are in a room you cannot leave. Seven bottles are on the table. One bottle contains a potion that will allow you to advance through the far door, another bottle contains a potion that will allow you to exit the way you entered. Three bottles contain poison. Two bottles contain wine. What is the order of the bottles from right to left? Which do you drink if you wish to advance and not retreat? Note: based on the clues given, there are eight possible solutions.

Danger lies before you, while safety lies behind,
Two of us will help you, whichever you would find,
One among us seven will let you move ahead,
Another will transport the drinker back instead,
Two among our number hold only nettle wine,
Three of us are killers, waiting hidden in line.
Choose, unless you wish to stay here forevermore,
To help you in your choice, we give you these clues four:
First, however slyly the poison tries to hide
You will always find some on nettle wine's left side;
Second, different are those who stand at either end,
But if you would move onward, neither is your friend;
Third, as you see clearly, all are different size,
Neither dwarf nor giant holds death in their insides;
Fourth, the second left and the second on the right
Are twins once you taste them, though different at first sight.

Three men in a boat with four cigarettes but no matches. How do they manage to smoke?

use the fourth one to light up the other 3. Since it belonged to the dude you just drowned. Or something like that?

1.) There are 3 light switches. One of the three light switches turns on a light on the other side of the room. You can only visit the other side of the room once, how can you tell which light switch turns on the light?

2.) A man walks into a bar, and asks for water. The bartender pulls out a shotgun and points it at the man. The man says "thank you," and leaves. Why?

turn on 2 of the switches for a period of time, turn one off, and feel the lights that are off. the light that is hot is the one you turned off, the cold one is the one you didn't use and (obviously) the one that is on is the one you left on

i know number one!!!

1.) u turn the switch one by one.... then after u turn each one, one by one, u turn them off... then u go to the lights and touch them... what ever is hotter is the last light u turn off... and the coldest is the first light u turned on....

Yes you were correct. Here is a riddle my teacher told me, i couldnt figure it out and its not on the web either...here it is:

There is a man who lives in a house. Everyday, before he goes to sleep he turns off all the light switches except one. On one particular day, the man forgets to leave one light switch on, and turns them all off. He goes to watch T.V, the news, and then sees something move in his house. The next day, he is found dead. Why? and wtf?

Does he live in a light house, and he leaves one light on so that boats can see where land is? I don't understand why he is found dead though.

The switch may not be to turn on/off a light. It may be a security sytem or a cage for an animal pet or something....although this is a bit strange to have a security system as a light switch...Why would you want to turn it off?

when u say he turns off all the light switches, did u mean LIGHT switches, or just switches? could the switch control something else?

if not, then the light house one is the best answer to me

This appears to be an altered version of a classic lateral thinking puzzle. The common version goes like this: A man wakes up at night and turns off the light. In the morning he looks out the window and kills himself. What happened?

Answer: The man is a lighthouse keeper, and the light he turned off was the one on top of the lighthouse. In the morning he sees that an ocean liner has crashed into the rocks, killing everyone aboard. He kills himself out of guilt.

You probably couldn't find it on the web because it was changed significantly so that it wouldn't pop up on a search.

The first thing you might do is to toss everything non-essential out of the basket--including your clothes. Hence, the naked man. If that wasn't enough, one of the passengers may have to exit. You can either toss out your buddy, or draw straws.

But that assumes you're in trouble in the first place :). I'd assumed that the riddle was just playing on the fact that every balloon has to lose altitude to land .... I didn't see mention of a naked man, musn't have scrolled up far enough (and now I seem to remember a riddle with that in it! My bad, came in at the wrong point).

Yea, these things are a bit obtuse, but they are good practice for basic problem solving. BTW, LaKoste may have a different solution.

++++++++++++++++++++++++

Regarding the women who murders her sister, let me rephrase the question with a little more info:

A woman attends her father's funeral. While there, she meets a man. They hit it off and spend some time talking. She has a hard time remembering names and doesn't get his phone number. She goes home to grieve.

A week later she kills her sister. Why?

Fraternity hazing. When will they learn?

Her father's death drives her to drink. She kills her sister in an accident.
