New thread idea, feel free to contribute ideas as well. A general riddles/mindbender/lateral thinking questions thread.


I have no respect for justice.
I maim without killing. I break hearts and ruin lives.
I am cunning, malicious and gather strength with age.
The more I am quoted, the more I am believed.
I flourish at every level of society.
My victims are helpless. They cannot protect themselves against me, as I have no name and no face.
To track me down is impossible. The harder you try, the more elusive I become.
I am nobody's friend.
Once I tarnish a reputation, it is never the same.
I topple governments and wreck marriages. I ruin careers and cause sleepless nights, heartaches and indigestion. I spawn suspicion and generate grief. I make innocent people cry in their pillows.

Even my name hisses.

What am I



No googling.

Gossip indeed!!! Very good, the Riddler approves - Have a Skittle.


As I said before, other people feel free to contribute, I don't know too many riddles.


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. What should have he said?

A plane flying from Texas to the Swizerland crashed into a mountain.

Every single person on board the plane died in the crash.

Two passengers survived the crash.

Why did they survive?

In response to Amigos: he should have said 3, as its the letters in the number, not half of it? I.e Four would be 4, Seven would be 5, so Ten would be 3, not 5..?

Archybad

(twelve has six letters, six has three etc.)

Sadly I know no riddles to supply in replacement so someone else will need to do do one please. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/sadeyes.gif

A young man walks through the forest. He came to a bridge. In front of the bridge is a large man carrying an axe.
The man says, "If you want to cross this bridge, you must tell me a statement. If I think the statement is true, you will be strangled to death. If I say the statement is false, your head will be chopped off."
A few minutes later, the young man walked over the bridge, while the larger man stood pondering.

What was the statement the young man had given?

You are a bus driver. At the first stop of the day, eight people get on board. At the second stop, four get off, and eleven get on. At the third stop, two get off, and six get on. At the fourth stop, thirteen get off, and one gets on. At the fifth stop, five get off, and three get on. At the sixth stop, three get off, and two get on. What is the bus driver's name?

A man was found murdered on Sunday morning. His wife immediately called the police. The police questioned the wife and staff and got these alibis:
The Wife said she was sleeping.
The Cook was cooking breakfast.
The Gardener was picking vegetables.
The Maid was getting the mail.
The Butler was cleaning the closet.

The police instantly arrested the murdered. Who did it and how did they know?

Guess they arrested the murderer. And if it is like here, there is no mail delivered on Sunday. Yet that seems a little too easy.

It's either the wife or the maid... If the wife was sleeping how did she instantly call the police? But there's no mail on Sundays so why was the maid collecting it?

Sorry guys!

I forgot to say he was alone in the car. And was killed inside the car.

I really hope the answer isn't a suicide, because "murder" should rule that out.

Still got nothing more on the murder. Maybe... the murderer used psychic emanations to coax him into shooting himself?

EDIT: Or maybe the man in the car isn't the victim?

And no, it wasn't mind control. And it wasn't suicide. Someone definitly killed him inside the car.
Short version is; guy in car, guy gets killed. Windows and doors closed and locked, no forced entry. How?

The police arrive at the scene of a shooting murder to discover the following...
The man is seated in the driver's seat, seat belt still done up. The doors are all closed, and locked. The windows are intact and all are fully wound up. The boot is locked. All locks are intact. There was no forced entry.
How did his murderer get to him?

Does the windshield count as a window in this one? Coulda shot him through the windshield...either that or the murderer took the keys and locked up the car afterward...

Is this one of those sneaky ones where the dead guy is unrelated to the shooting as it isn't stated he got shot and the guy in the car simply died of old age in his car nearby to a crime scene?

This of course could have plenty of possible answers.
But my theory is he got the news he had cancer and would die a horrible death within a week. So, he decides to jump off a building, when the doctor suddenly calls on his way down. Telling him they switched files, and he's actually in perfect health.

Or, he got stood up by his loved one on the night he was going to propose. And after leaving a message on her voicemail, his paranoia gets to him and he thinks he's lost her already. So, he decides life isn't worth living without her, and jumps.
Then on his way down, he hears the ring and sees the Caller ID being her.

The 2nd scenario would fit in case he started crying without answering the phone http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

This of course could have plenty of possible answers.
But my theory is he got the news he had cancer and would die a horrible death within a week. So, he decides to jump off a building, when the doctor suddenly calls on his way down. Telling him they switched files, and he's actually in perfect health.

Or, he got stood up by his loved one on the night he was going to propose. And after leaving a message on her voicemail, his paranoia gets to him and he thinks he's lost her already. So, he decides life isn't worth living without her, and jumps.
Then on his way down, he hears the ring and sees the Caller ID being her.

The 2nd scenario would fit in case he started crying without answering the phone http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif </div></BLOCKQUOTE>

He's in the Matrix. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_razz.gif

StuffedInABoxx was right on my last one so heres another.

You throw away the outside then cook the inside then throw away the inside and eat the outside.
What did you eat?

There is two posible answers to this I want both.

Well it's how my sister eats her eggs. Throws away the shell, cooks the egg; throws away the yolk and eats the white.

I doubt it's the answer though. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_razz.gif
