    Shane's riddles!

    Post by PkmnTrainer Shane on Sun Nov 06, 2011 5:46 pm

    This is were you answer and post your riddles here. The only rule for the riddles is that it can't be anything inappropriate. Here's a few riddles:

    Do not click the spoiler, it contains the answer!

    #1:Which is heavier a pound of feathers or a pound of gold?

    Spoiler:
    A pound of feathers. Some would say a pound is a pound but the fact is: Gold is a precious metal and is therefore weighed in the Troy system of measurement. This means that a pound of gold weighs only 12 oz and a pound of feathers weighs 16 oz.


    #2: I am slim and tall,
    Many find me desirable and appealing.
    They touch me and I give a false good feeling.
    Once I shine in splendor,
    But only once and then no more.
    For many I am "to die for".
    What am I?

    Spoiler:
    A Cigarette

    #3:If a man carried my burden he would break his back. I am not big but leave silver in my tracks. What am I?

    Spoiler:
    A snail.

    #4:If you have me you want to share me. If you share me you won't have me. What am I?

    Spoiler:
    A secret.

    #5:There is a clothing store in Bartlesville. The owner has devised his own method of pricing items. A vest costs $20 socks cost $25 a tie costs $15 and a blouse costs $30. Using the method how much would a pair of underwear cost?

    Spoiler:
    $45. The pricing method consists of charging $5 for each letter required to spell the item.

    This one is my favorite one, because I made it hard.

    #6:A man is walking down a road with a basket of eggs. As he is walking he meets someone who buys one-half of his eggs plus one-half of an egg. He walks a little further and meets another person who buys one-half of his eggs plus one-half of an egg. After proceeding further he meets another person who buys one-half of his eggs plus one half an egg. At this point he has sold all of his eggs and he never broke an egg. How many eggs did the man have to start with?

    (Hint: Use math!)

    Spoiler:
    7 eggs. The first person bought one half of his eggs plus one half an egg (3 1/2 + 1/2 = 4 eggs) This left him 3 eggs. The second person bought one-half of his eggs plus one half an egg (1 1/2 + 1/2 = 2 eggs) leaving the man 1 egg.

    More will come soon! Hope you liked it.

    Riddle 1: Pound is a pound. You can't state that they are measured in different measuring units because it wasn't specified. Both answers are correct.

    Riddle 2: I hate cigarettes...

    Riddle 3: Clever.

    Riddle 4: See riddle 3.

    Riddle 5: The real question is: Why would he charge $20 for one sock but $25 for two? That's very unfair.

    I guess this will make my puzzels a little Irelevant.

    I'll give the answer to my last Puzzel here (I imagine the other will soon die)

    For those who can't remembre my puzzle was I recieved a pokemon from trade then that one trade become 3 pokemon How is this possible?
    Spoiler:
    Well firstly I was traded a nincada and I hope we all know that evolves into 2 pokemon (ninjask and shedinja). The third pokemon is the item! Choose a fossil and there is your third
    .

    The riddles in the first Post were very clever.

    I don't think you can trade a fossil. But anyways, I was gonna guess Nincada until I saw that it would only be two Pokemon. (Shedinja and Ninjask)

    mobby, to be fair, your riddle didn't make much sense in the first place. Please specifically enunciate whether or not the Pokemon was holding an item when traded. Now, the fossil Pokemon is unrelated to the Nincada family, so I feel that question is bogus. Now, for my question.

    If socialism is an economic system and is associated with tyranny, then give me another economic system and the type of government associated with it.

    THE ANSWER:

    That would be acceptable. There is one other answer that would be applicable though.
