THESE ARE FIVE GOOD RIDDLES....THE ANSWERS ARE AT THE BOTTOM....RIDDLE
#5 IS AMAZING....ENJOY...THIS SHARPENS THOSE GENES IN YOUR BRAIN....

1. A murderer is condemned to death. He has to choose between three
rooms The first is full of raging fires, the second is full of
assassins with loaded guns, and the third is full of lions that haven't
eaten in 3 years. Which room is safest for him?

2. A woman shoots her husband. Then she holds him under water for over 5
minutes. Finally, she hangs him. But 5 minutes later they both go out
together and enjoy a wonderful dinner together. How can this be?

3. What is black when you buy it, red wh en you use it, and gray when you
throw it away?

4. Can you name three consecutive days without using the words
Wednesday, Friday, or Sunday?

5. This is an unusual paragraph. I'm curious as to just how quickly you
can find out what is so unusual about it. It looks so ordinary and plain
that you would think nothing was wrong with it. In fact, nothing is
wrong with it! It is highly unusual though. Study it and think about
it, but you still may not find anything odd. But if you work at it a
bit, you might find out. Try to do so without any coaching!


THE ANSWERS TO ALL FIVE THE RIDDLES ARE BELOW:














1. The third room. Lions that haven't eaten in three years are dead.
That one was easy, right?

2. The woman was a photographer. She shot a picture of her husband,
developed it, and hung it up to dry (shot; held under water; and hung).

3. Charcoal, as it is used in barbecuing.

4. Sure you can name three consecutive days, yesterday, today, and
tomorrow!

5. The letter E, which is the most common letter used in the English
language, does not appear even once in the paragraph.

I got 2, 4 and 5. My answer to 4 was a little different, but I think it still qualifies. I said Easter, New Years and Christmas. They are still days, right?f
