The riddle game !
« on: July 25, 2009, 09:44 »
I post a riddle. The first one to solve it posts another one etc.

Here it is (this is a really difficult one):


In a street there are five houses, painted five different colors.

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?

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 center 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.
15. The Blends smoker lives next to the one who drinks water.

You are right ;D

That riddle was actually invented by Einstein more than a century ago... he claimed that 98% couldn't solve it (He was quite proud of himself wasn't he)

I got quite far on my own (variables & clues in the table and step 1) but I wasn't too sure at which left side of the white house the green house was (from the watcher's point of view or from the houses'). I started from the houses' point of view, but after I got further, I thought it would be beter to check whether I was right, so I looked it up (I was right). After that, I've done most of it myself (but I must admit I couldn't resist peeking every now and then ^^)

Here is my riddle:

How quickly can you find out what is unusual about this paragraph? It looks so ordinary that you would think that nothing is wrong with it at all-- and, in fact, nothing is. But it is a bit odd. Why? If you study it and think about it, you may find out, but I am not going to assist you in any way. You must do it without any coaching. No doubt, if you work at it for long, it will dawn on you. Who knows?

Good luck.

sorry i went to bed >.<, here it is

 A man was to be sentenced, and the judge told him, "You may make a statement. If it is true, I'll sentence you to four years in prison. If it is false, I'll sentence you to six years in prison." After the man made his statement, the judge decided to let him go free. What did the man say?

Probably something like: "You will sentence me to 6 years of prison"
That would work right?

If you assume it's false he would have to give him 6 years, but that makes it become true...
If it's true that means he will have to give him 4 years, but that would mean it becomes a false statement...

If it's correct here is mine:

While on my way to the beach I saw a man with 7 wifes. Each wife had 7 sacks. Each sacks had 7 cats. Each cat had 7 kittens. Kittens, sacks, cats, wifes. How many were going to the beach?

Sorry, but you are wrong ^^
Even if you were on the riht path tha answer would still be wrong since it's 343+49+7+7+(1)=406 (407) (if you count the man)

@Crisn, you are right
