wiegraf: Like the others, after figuring you out not so tough anymore, are you? There's a more complex version though. Likely been posted here already as well

You have 9 coins, one is lighter than the others. You can confirm this only by balancing them against themselves on a balancing weight scale. You can figure out the lighter one with 2 tries, how?
First weigh three coins against three others. If the weights are equal, weigh the remaining two against the last 1. The heavier one is the counterfeit. If one of the groups of three is heavier, weigh two of those coins against each other. If one is heavier, it's the counterfeit. If they're equal weight, the third coin is the counterfeit.

That is correct! Maybe! I don't understand your first step, there might be an error there. The last step is correct, so I'm guessing I'm just not comprehending properly. There are more complex versions of this, but I have to run for now...

Perform this calculation in your head, mentally adding the numbers as quickly as you can. Start with 1000 and add 40. Now add 1000. Add 30 to that, then add another 1000. Now add 20 to that result. Add another 1000 and finally, add 10 to that. What is the total?...post ur answer here!!!


There are six glasses in a row. The first three are full of water, and the next three are empty. By moving only one glass how can you make them alternate between full and empty?

A taxi driver runs through four red lights, two stop signs and goes through a house. A police officer witnesses this but doesn't do anything. Why not?

The only thing I've learned from these riddles is my math isn't as bad as I think it, and my imagination is lacking in many respects. I didn't think of this...
Then again, I'm usually wasted when on NL...

I think he means switch, in which case just switch the 2nd and 4th, that's the only thing I can think of. Some sort of redistribution of the contents maybe? Nah

a filled lorry crossing a bridge with less than 10m to destination meets a cross bar,
for some reasons he cant reverse, how does the lorry make it pass the crossbar without a scratch on both lorry and crossbar

NB; the lorry is just 2inches longer than the crossbar.

MRbrownJAY:

answer: NOTHING

here is one from me (i posted it in the riddle thread but i got no replies):

10 thieves were caught red handed and arrested. they were placed in front of a firing squad, and shot at point blank range (with real bullet), yet no single men was killed. how is this possible?!

Ill counter the answer dat dey whr all married men.....wat if the thieves were women...bcz the question said not a single men wz killed....so its likely to b MARRIED MEN or dey cld b all WOMEN...!!!...tink abt IT?

A man wanted to enter an exclusive club but did not know the password that was required. He waited by the door and listened. A club member knocked on the door and the doorman said, "twelve." The member replied, "six " and was let in. A second member came to the door and the doorman said, "six." The member replied, "three" and was let in. The man thought he had heard enough and walked up to the door. The doorman said ,"ten" and the man replied, "five." But he was not let in.

1+2+6=9
3+6=9
1+0+8=9
No? Dammit

Sticking with math
1+2*6=18
6*3=18
1+0*18=18
So, 18
No?
Probably no. Dammit
