Three men are tied up and sat down in chairs. Their heads are fixed in a position that results in this: The first man sees only straight ahead. The second man sees only the first man, and the third man sees only the other two. None can see themselves. Their captors say that if any of the men can tell them what color hat he is wearing, all three men will be set free. Their are four hats; two black, and two white, the men are told. However, only three of those hats are being worn, so it could be two black and one white or one black and two white. Which one of the men answers, and why?

 

 

Answer:

 

[hide=]The guy in the middle will call out the hat colour opposite to the guy in front of him. This is because if he is wearing the same hat as the person in front of him the person behind him, who can see both hats, will know which hat he has. But if the person behind him doesn't speak then the middle man knows the hat in front of him is a different colour than his own.[/hide]

 

 

 

Am I right?

In case anyone didn't read the 5th page, here's 3 more riddles

 

 

 

"I have two heads but one body.

 

The more I stand still the faster I run."

 

 

 

"Alive as you but without breath, as cold in my life as in my death; never a thirst though. I always drink dressed in a mail but never a cling."

 

 

 

"The life I lead is mere hours or less, I serve all my time by being consumed. I am quickest when thin, slowest when fat, and wind is the bane of the gift that I bring."

For the second riddle:

 

[hide=]The second man/ the man that sees the first one. If he can tell what colour hat that the first man is wearing, then it will determine the hat the second and third man are wearing. First = white hat Second and Third = black. Vise-versa with other colours.[/hide]


they should put my face up on a million dollar bill dollar bill dollar bill lol

No offense to anyone, but a lot of us have heard the answers to a fair amount of these before. Furthermore, the answers to most of these can be found on the internet (not that I'm condoning that you search for them). Be original people.

 

 

 

And to all of you who keep posting answers to the op's riddles, if you took the couple of seconds to read even the first couple of pages, you'll find that they've already been answered.

 

 

 

That said, Dusty is the answer to 3

 

[hide=]a candle? That's what I first thought of after seeing gauper's answer[/hide]

Not exactly like the riddles already present, but have fun with these ones:

 

 

 

[hide=1]Alike in mountain or in cell,

 

In country or in town I dwell.

 

My lodging may be large or small,

 

Or may be nothing but a wall.

 

When let alone, reserved and mute

 

I shun appearance and dispute,

 

And all intruders I defy

 

Who would on my recesses pry.

 

For at my voice, as if spell-bound,

 

Your steps are rooted to the ground.

 

I choose your place, my word is law,

 

And if you pass it, or withdraw,

 

I vanish as by magic, till

 

You keep your distance and stand still.

 

This done, it yet remains with you

 

To lead, I only take the cue;

 

This deference I always pay,

 

Yours is the time, though mine the way.

 

I never speak, as many do,

 

Before I have been spoken to:

 

But then I follow like a shot,

 

And give as good as I have got.

 

All tongues I speak, and use in these

 

Whatever dialect you please;

 

All sounds I utter, deep or shrill,

 

A mimic of unequalled skill;

 

Can yelp, and low, and bark, and growl,

 

Like pistol crack, like thunder rowl.

 

But one idea to obtain

 

From me you would expect in vain.

 

For though my talk is often terse,

 

I neither reason nor converse.

 

The chief attainment which I reach

 

Is great precision in my speech.

 

Whatever I have got to say,

 

I give it vent without delay;

 

Yet never have been known to make

 

In word or letter one mistake;

 

And if I tell what proves untrue,

 

The fault is not in me but in you.

 

My voice is either low or high

 

As suits the place and company,

 

And always pitched to answer best

 

The tone in which I am addrest.

 

Although reserved I keep me post

 

Amidst the clamours of a host;

 

Whose fire, however sharp or thick,

 

Will meet rejoinder just as quick:

 

For, be their number small or great,

 

I never suffer a defeat,

 

I never weary, never fly,

 

And always have the last reply;

 

Remaining when the fight is done,

 

Just where it found me when begun.[/hide]

 

[hide=2]In height and depth, in heaven and hell,

 

In ocean and in earth I dwell;

 

The first of each, the last of one,

 

And yet I can be found in none.

 

Though evil must with me begin,

 

I am in error, not in sin.

 

The first enterprise to lead,

 

I never fail in strength or speed,

 

Yet, always found in bed, and weak,

 

I cannot stand alone, or speak.

 

The end at once of peace and strife,

 

And present both in death and life,

 

My common help to foe and friend.

 

To silence and to speech I lend;

 

And still an equal place I have

 

Both in the cradle and the grave,

 

And space must terminate with me.[/hide]

 

[hide=3]I am the weakest thing alive,

 

Yet dauntless with the strong I strive;

 

Defenceless and exposed I lie,

 

Yet old and young to serve me fly.

 

 

 

I beat my mother, scorn my sire,

 

Would smile though cities were on fire:

 

Wrong is to me the same as right,

 

I sinned before I saw the light.

 

 

 

My past distress affects me not,

 

I nothing dread my future lot;

 

Whateer I wish to do I dare,

 

And leave to others all my care.

 

 

 

I prize not honours, wealth, or birth,

 

Not greatest glories of the earth;

 

And I, of all on mortal ground,

 

Alone am independent found.

 

 

 

Exempt from envy and from pride,

 

All that I want is soon supplied,

 

Unmoved by others weal or woe,

 

Without a rival or a foe.

 

 

 

And by the wisest and the best

 

My state has been accounted blest;

 

For Christians most advanced must be

 

In many things most like me.[/hide]

 

[hide=4]My first and last in dungeon deep

 

And desolate their places keep,

 

And, though exempt from chain and bar,

 

In the extremes of durance are.

 

In middle of the air and skies,

 

Centred in bliss, my second lies,

 

Yet, never freed from whip and sting,

 

Exists in pain and suffering.

 

All these my three, first, second, third,

 

One short but monitory word,

 

Men do in every place and way,

 

At every age, and every day.[/hide]

 

[hide=5]My first can dim the suns meridian ray,

 

In hardest Iron my second eat away;

 

My third indulged will have their powers combined,

 

To cloud the judgement, and corrode the mind.[/hide]

[hide=]I believe the answer is something like "the present moment" or "the time at hand" or "impulse"[/hide]

This one is especially hard, and you'll DEFINITELY need to ask questions in order to get it.

 

There is a cabin in the middle of the woods. In the cabin, a man lies dead. There are three hooks on the wall-- the kind used for hanging clothes, not killing-- and a deck of cards on the table. How did he die?

 

 

 

I have no idea if someone has answered your 3rd riddle but here's the answer to it: (It would help if the thread creator updated their post to tell others if it has been answered yet or not).

 

 

 

[hide=]He was in a plane (a plane cabin) with 2 others but there was only 2 parachutes available. The plane was going to crash so they played a round of poker. The winners got the parachutes and landed to safety. The loser plunged with the plane to his death in the middle of the woods.[/hide]

The only people who tell you that you can't do something are those who have already given up on their own dreams so feel the need to discourage yours.
