Riddles

Post by legacy » 17 Jan 2013 23:08

Well I kind of noticed that we were posting a few riddles in a different topic, so I figured I'd make a topic and give it a try :P. I'll start.

Two prisoners are locked in a cell with a dirt floor. There is an open window high up in the cell. No matter if they stand on the bed or one on top of the other they can't reach the window to escape. They then decide to tunnel out. However, they give up with this idea because it would take them too long. Finally, one of the prisoners figures out how to escape from the cell. What is his plan?

No cheating!

Flawless wasn't wrong - I would've suggested the same, but only as a joke. The predicament did not forbid them to kill each other...and escaping the cell isn't necessarily physical. You also mentioned that it didn't matter if they stood on the bed or on top of each other to reach the window, but there was no specification as to how much space there was left until they could, so they could have tried standing on top of the bed on top of each other and they also might have reached it.


A riddle from me:
What belongs to you, but others use it more than you do?

Here's one from me.

It is greater than God and more evil than the devil. The poor have it, the rich need it and if you eat it you'll die. What is it?

NO CHEATING PLEASE! :D
