I knew number 9 because I've read the hobbit. They're good, though.

With riddle 1, did you mean to say that you met a bear after your journey and what colour was the bear?

Each sack had seven cats
Each cat had seven kit's
Kit's, cats. sacks and wives
How many were going to St. Ives?



The following content has been hidden - Reason : St. Ives answer
Only one person was going to St. Ives. All the others were being passed along the way.

w00t. thanx to those who pm'd me how to do the hide thing-o. =]

igtz..down to business.


One. A man has to take a dog, a cat, and a mouse across a river. He can only take one of the animals across at a time. If he takes the mouse, the dog will eat the cat. If he takes the dog, the cat will eat the mouse. How does he get the three animals across the river?

The following content has been hidden - Reason : answer to one.
1. The man takes the cat across and goes back to get the mouse. 2. The man then takes the mouse across and returns with the cat. 3. The man leaves the cat on the shore and takes the dog across. He leaves the dog with the mouse. 4. The man goes back to get the cat and all of the animals have made it across the river!



Two. In the basement there are 3 light switches in the off position. Each switch controls 1 of 3 light bulbs on the floor above. You may move any of the switches, but you may only go up stairs one time. How can you determine which switch controls each light?

The following content has been hidden - Reason : answer to two.
Turn any one switch to the "on" position for 5 minutes, then turn that switch "off". Quickly turn any other switch to the "on" position and run up stairs. Feel the two lights that are "off". One of them will be "hot" because is was "on" for 5 minutes. Obviously the "hot" bulb is controlled by the first switch you turned "on". The light that is currently "on" is controlled by the switch you last turn "on". The "cold" bulb that is "off" is controlled by the only switch left. When solving problems we often need to use all our senses.


Three. Mr. and Mrs. Wilson have five children, half of them are boys.How is this possible?

The following content has been hidden - Reason : answer to three.
They are all boys


Four. THIS ONE IS EASY! There is a pink single story house and everything in it is pink. The doors are pink, the windows are pink and the TV is pink. What color are the stairs....

The following content has been hidden - Reason : answer to four
There are no stairs in a single story house


Five. With the numbers 123456789, make them add up to 100. They must stay in the same order. You can use addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. Remember, they have to stay in the same order !!!

The following content has been hidden - Reason : answer to five
1+2+3+4+5+6+7+(8X9) = 100


Ightz thats all for today =]
