Ask either "what button would the other robot tell me to press?"Ha ha. I get it. Anyway, here's a pretty hard riddle. I couldn't get it, let's see if you guys can...
You are in a room with no doors, no windows, no trapdoors or any other exits. There is no one outside that can help you. If you stay in the room you will eventually die of hunger. There is only one way to escape. There are two buttons labelled "A" and "Z" in the centre of the room. One of them will free you instantly and the other will kill you instantly. There are two identical robots in the room. One always tells the truth and the other always lies. You are allowed to ask one of the robots one question. The robot you ask has to answer you but only you can decide if it is true or false.
What question must you ask to determine which button will save you? Explain your answer.
And NO cheating!
You stole it. It was stolen around the time you were there, right? ...I dunno.you are inside the lobby of a building with 41 floors. A deliveryman comes into the building, carrying a cylinder and a few packages. He takes an express elevator up to the top floor, stays for five minutes, then comes down, still carrying the tube but one package lighter.
The next person to come in is an elderly man, leaning heavily to the left on a cane. He takes the express elevator to the top, stays for seven minutes, then comes back down.
While on his way out, the elderly man collides with a young woman, the cane in his right hand tangling with the umbrella in her left. The man apologizes and leaves, while the woman heads to the top floor on the express elevator, stays for nine minutes, then returns.
Later that day the police discovered that a valuble painting was missing from the top floor of the building you visited. The theft took place at around the time you were there and all the suspects had both a reason to steal it and something to hold the painting in.
Who stole the painting?
The three wisest sages in the land were brought before the king to see which of them were worthy to become the king's advisor. After passing many tests of cunning and invention, they were pitted against each other in a final battle of the wits.
Led blind-folded into a small room, the sages were seated around a small wooden table as the king described the test for them.
"Upon each of your heads I have placed a hat. Now you are either wearing a blue hat or a white hat. All I will tell you is this- at least one of you is wearing a blue hat. There may be only one blue hat and two white hats, there may be two blue hats and one white hat, or there may be three blue hats. But you may be certain that there are not three white hats."
"I will shortly remove your blind folds, and the test will begin. The first to correctly announce the colour of his hat shall be my advisor. Be warned however, he who guesses wrongly shall be beheaded. If not one of you answers within the hour, you will be sent home and I will seek elsewhere for wisdom."
With that, the king uncovered the sages' eyes and sat in the corner and waited. One sage looked around and saw that his competitors each were wearing blue hats. From the look in their eyes he could see their thoughts were the same as his, "What is the colour of my hat?"
For what seemed like hours no one spoke. Finally he stood up and said, "The colour of the hat I am wearing is . . ."
Blue just seemed the most logical answer to me. I figured most everyone would pick white (just because the riddle makes it seem like there must be a least one white hat in the mix) But riddles tend to have the answer opposite the answer than what a person would usually pick. So, naturally, I picked blueHow did you get blue? It's right, but its interesting to see how people get to answers.
And as you didn't leave a new riddle, I will *yay*
Fireman is not correct for the first one; he wasHe was a fireman, there was a fire that night, and a warning light thingie was going "warning! Warning! There's a fire!" but the guy turned it off. I don't know.
Griffar got the last riddle right.
Invincible man can and will do anything. He can kill you with a single glance, melt metal with his hands, and live in space without the need of a suit. You have been hired by the 'villan' of this story to take him out. You know that weapons won't hurt him in the slightest, nor will any 'alien metals' (aka: things like kryptonite) hurt him. On the day you are to take him out you meet him on the side of a street. How do you kill him?
