    Just to clarify, I do mean the kind of riddles that you solve. But we can talk about Tom Riddle if you want.

    Darn, I was hoping we would talk about the riddles you solve.

    I do have one, actually.
    Ten fish I caught without an eye
    And nine without a tail
    Six had no head, and half of eight
    I weighed upon the scale.
    Now who can tell me as I ask it,
    How many fish were in my basket?

    #16809

    Josiah the Carrot Stick

    None?

    #16827

    Awkward Potato

    Exactly.

    #16828

    Josiah the Carrot Stick

    Thought so. A basket was never mentioned prior to the question…

    That’s not why.

    I had to have potato explain it to me.

    #16832

    Josiah the Carrot Stick

    Okay, then. I’m slightly amused that there’s multiple ways of getting to the correct answer.

    #16847

    Awkward Potato

    Do you want me to explain it?

    #16889

    Josiah the Carrot Stick

    Oh sure, why not? Does it have something to do with the different body parts not being there? That seems too obvious…

    #16906

    No…here, I’ll give you the hint I gave Kristen. Write out the digits of the numbers and then do what is mentioned in the riddle to each of those numbers.

    Josiah the Carrot Stick

    Ah.

    YES I KNEW THERE HAD TO BE A THREAD FOR RIDDLES!! And of course my dear friend awkward potato started it, i knew it, why am I surprised? Lol and she did her infamous fish riddle, that stumped me really good.

    Ok I have a riddle,

    A man and his son were driving together one day and they got in a car accident. Two different ambulances came, the first took the son to a hospital in the east and the second took the dad to a hospital in the west. Two completely different directions and hospitals. Yet when the boy went into surgery the doctor who was operating that day said,” I cannot operate on this boy he is my son.”

    My question is how is that possible?

    The surgery did not take place instantaneously, hence the opportunity for the father to reunite with his son?

    #26885

    Dawn

    Bad guess…but what if the son is someone else? Like the other car in the situation. So the doctor’s son is in this other car, and the father/son augh nevermind my brain is shot.

    (Looks up answer.)

    Oh my word I just looked it up and I feel so dumb now…

    I know the pain and the rage Mason.

    Okay, so I have two jars and a water source. One jar will hold five gallons, the other will hold three gallons. You may fill the jars completely or dump them completely. You may also move water from one jar to another.

    There is a dish that must have exactly four gallons of water with no overflow. (no dumping the five gallon in the dish)

    How do you do it?

    Aww you guys looked it up? Haha I love that riddle haha good job.

    #26905

    Ok so dump the three gallon into the dish and then pour a gallon from the five jar to the three jar and the Into the dish. Right? I just guess if I get it right I will be so surprised lol

    #26906

    Awkward Potato

    It would waste a lot of water, but you could just keep refilling the three gallon one and dumping it into the five gallon one. Because then you’d have one gallon left in the three gallon one and you could pour that into the four gallon dish. Repeat three times and you have exactly four gallons in that dish.

    #26907

    Awkward Potato

    (I’m basing that on the assumption that the dish you’re pouring the four gallons into holds more than four gallons)

    #26934

    Josiah the Carrot Stick

    Can’t you just dip the dish in the water source?

    #26961

    Dawn

    Nope.

    And you cannot put one gallon from the water source into the jars. That would be imprecise, as the jars don’t have tick marks showing the different gallon marks. And you don’t have access to a scale either.

    You must have PRECISELY four gallons in the dish all at once.
