Not a riddle you want to solve,it's brain tasking.By the way, the question has been asked and answered before
InesQor: You are lost in a forest but fortunately you have a cigarette lighter on you so you decide to make a fire and get some sleep. While collecting branches to make the fire, you suddenly find a long water pipe running East to West. How will you find your way to the nearest village?
set the pipe on fire,that'd cut the water supply to the village causing the villagers to trace the source of the problem to the forest.

it depends on the diameter of the pipe.
if it's large,he's just abt to kill himself.
d issue is, is a village on the east or west side,
n wat direction is the water flowing...

NO

Hint: Read the last line.

Which is rather a paradox, since I just did. tongue So the NEW answer is YES.

And speaking of paradoxes,

Tinkybabe:
If a chicken says, "All Chickens are liars" is the chicken telling the truth?
If the Chicken is telling the truth, then the Chicken is a liar. If the Chicken is a liar, then it is telling the truth. This riddle gets interesting if we are assuming that all liars never tell the truth, or that all truth-tellers never lie. In which case, we will be faced with the Epimenides paradox.

Tinkybabe:
What was the President's name in 1975?
Assuming the president was born by 1975 , most likely his name shouldn't have changed at all. If you're in the United States, his name is Barack Obama.

(The question didn't ask: "in 1975, what was the name of the President?"wink
Re: Riddles Riddles Riddles!!! by InesQor(m): 9:20pm On Mar 16, 2013
My "stranded in the forest riddle"; the answer is: set fire to the pipe for a bit. After some minutes check which side (East or West) of the fire is warmer. That's the direction of flow of water, and it will lead you to the nearest village.
Re: Riddles Riddles Riddles!!! by InesQor(m): 9:29pm On Mar 16, 2013
This one is a real cracker.

I am a rebel, a friend of Spartacus angry

The Romans captured me and gave me the Gladiatorial Test. I am to say a statement, if it is true I will be ripped to shreds by ten wild animals. If it is false, I will be beheaded and my body will be cut into 9 pieces. If I don't say anything, eight gladiators will kill me off in the Arena to the cheer of the crowd cry

How did I escape?

Take note: Spartacus / Gannicus or any of the rebels didn't need to come to my aid. I simply beat the Romans at their own game.

No, this is a question.

musKeeto:

EDIT: "Let me go"
Hahaha "A statement" is a phrase and means nothing on its own.

"Let me go" isn't a statement though. It's also a phrase.

A statement must have a true / false value of opinion.

What if you used a paradox, like "this statement is false"

Yeah, @InesQor, what if you did? Though I think that without a definition of "this statement", it might not really be a statement.

Like, seriously, the riddles here are so hardcore, mehn!

lol@take note
ans: you said to them 'I'll be beheaded and my body will be cut into pieces'.This left them in a confused state and they just had to release you.

exp:either way the authenticity of the statement and due punishment would always conflict.
