It is, actually.

It is annoying to try to construct such things, as my short, kind of "bad" (in terms of easy communication of thoughts) posts should show.

If, having only one match, on a freezing winter day, you entered a room which contained a lamp, a kerosene heater, and a wood burning stove, which should you light first?

Foo is a bum. He has no money to buy cigarettes. Instead, he walks up and down the local streets searching for cigarette butts. Foo knows he can make 1 cigarette from 7 cigarette butts.

How many cigarettes does Foo have that night if he collects 50 cigarette butts?

8 cigarettes. He can make 7 with the 50 because 50/7 = 7 remainder 1.
Then once he smokes those 7, he will have another 7 butts to make a cigarette, so thats a total of 8 cigarettes and 2 butts left in the end.

A customer at a 7-11 store selected four items to buy and was told that the cost was $7.11. He was curious that the cost was the same as the store name so he enquired as to how the figure was derived. The clerk said that he had simply multiplied the prices of the four individual items. The customer protested that the four prices should've been added, not multiplied. The clerk emphasised that that was OK with him but the result was still the same: exactly $7.11. What were the four prices?

Fifty is my first
Nothing is my second
Five just makes my third
My fourth is a vowel unreckoned
Now to find my name
Fit my parts together
I die if I get cold
But never fear cold weather

my riddle

There is a common English word that is nine letters long. Each time you remove a letter from it, it still remains an English word - from nine letters right down to the single letter. What is the original word and what are the words it becomes after removing a letter at a time?(hint: the single letter it ends with is " i ".)

new riddle

Three men go to a cheap motel, and the desk clerk charges them a sum of $30.00 for the night. The three of them split the cost ten dollars each. Later the manager comes over and tells the desk clerk that he overcharged the men, since the actual cost should have been $25.00. The manager gives the bellboy $5.00 and tells him to give it to the men. The bellboy, however, decides to cheat the men and pockets $2.00, giving each of the men only one dollar.

Now each man has paid $9.00 to stay for the night, and 3 x $9.00 = $27.00. The bellboy has pocketed $2.00. But $27.00 + $2.00 = $29.00. Where is the missing $1.00? WTF?

it's a riddle. i'm still working on yours.

edit: answer:


25 / 3 = 8.3333333333333333333333 = ~8.33

8.33 * 3 = oh fuck this.

it's not 27 + 2 = 29.

the 27 is already 25 + 2, so it should read 27 + 3 = 30.

25 + 2 + 3 = 30.

the riddle plays on a math trick.

edit2: or conversely, 30 (amount paid) - 3 (amount refunded) - 2 (amount stolen) = 25 (actual amount due)

edit3: now answer my riddle, foo!

edit4: argh! i'll rephrase the riddle to make it easier.

yep...

We are very little creatures; all of us have different features. One of us in glass is set; one of us you'll find in jet. Another you may see in tin, and a fourth is boxed within. If the fifth you should pursue, it can never fly from you. What are we?

Soldiers line up spaced with pride,
Two long rows lined side by side.
One sole unit can decide,
If the rows will unite or divide.
Tell me, tell me, scream it out.
