Riddle Me This
 
Anybody who tries to hijack my Riddle thread....I'll kill yah. :elmer: J/K

I love these, see if you can answer them.


While on my way to St. Ives, I saw a man with 7 wives. Each wife had 7 sacks. Each sack had 7 cats. Each cat had 7 kittens. Kitten, cats, sacks, wives, How many were going to St. Ives?

Or this one is good too.

Here on earth it is true, yesterday is always before today; but there is a place where yesterday always follows today. Where?

Yup it's easy to tell the Seahawks are out of the playoffs now. :nono:

Like, 25 years ago what NFL team won the big one that's going to do it again? :yay:

Major Seahawk 01-17-2011 08:57 AM

The answer to the first is going to be off because you didn't say that the women were comming or going to St. Ives. The answer as your question is writen would be one. If everyone were going to St. Ives, the answer would be 345 (you have to remember to add both men)...

I like this last one, I won't do it, but it's a good one.

Here's one for you:

Paul is 20 years old in 1980, but only 15 years old in 1985. How is this possible?

He lied about his name, his name is Benjamin Button. :p

Three wise men are told to stand in a straight line, one in front of the other. A hat is put on each of their heads. They are told that each of these hats was selected from a group of five hats: two black hats and three white hats. The first man, standing at the front of the line, can’t see either of the men behind him or their hats. The second man, in the middle, can see only the first man and his hat. The last man, at the rear, can see both other men and their hats.

None of the men can see the hat on his own head. They are asked to deduce its color. Some time goes by as the wise men ponder the puzzle in silence. Finally the first one, at the front of the line, makes an announcement: “My hat is white.”

He is correct. How did he come to this conclusion?

This is a great riddle I really like. Took me a long time to get it.

Two black hats, and three whites.............so if the first two had black hats, there is only 3 white hats left. That's my guess
