    Riddle

    Inspired by notpr0n, I thought I would start a riddle thread. The rules are you can only ask the riddler yes/ no questions. Winner gets to set a new riddle.

    Re: Riddle

    Here's a well known one to start.

    A man is found hanged in a room with no windows which is locked from the inside. There is a pool of water under his feet.

    How did he die?

    He was standing on a block of ice that melted away, leaving himself to hang.

    Re: Riddle

    You have been zapped into this room by means unknown. There are two doors on one side of the room, there are two computers. It even seems they are each guarding a door.

    There are two signs, and a leper in the room with you.

    The first sign reads:

    "Behind one door is God realization. Behind the other door is a room painted entirely green. The only things in that room are a man and a ladder, both of which are painted entirely green. The man has been hired by the coalition of Gangsta Rappers to hurl a non-stop barrage of insults at anyone who enters the room. " (end sign 1)

    The second sign sits between the two computers (also the two doors) and reads as follows:

    "One of these computers is programmed to lie to you regardless of how friendly you are to the user interface, the other computer is programmed to tell the truth, regardless of your emotional state."

    It is about this time that the gangrenous leper begins to speak "I get you deal on phone time $.08 minutes weekdays all odd hours. $.10 on Thursday except the hour between 2:00 and 3:00, or any registered birthday . . . "

    He begins to - quite slowly - lurch towards you, he's already reaching out towards you, you get the sense he's a "touchy-feely" sorta person. You quickly calculate you have time to ask one computer one question before he reaches you. The riddle before you is this: What question do you ask, and to which computer do you pose your question? Remember, you don't know whether the computer's answer will be a lie, and you've got to figure out which door to go out.

    Re: Riddle

    Which door would the other computer tell me opened to the insulting man?

    Zephyr: Besides Wyzcrak and his godly voice; the kind of voice that you will expect to say "Zephyr, I need you to build an ark at Marine Start, with room for two of every structure so that I may turret spam for 40 days and 40 nights" that is.

    Squeak:Sometimes I'm awed by zibs genius. Then I remember he's Canadian and I feel significantly less threatened.

    Re: Riddle

    agreed, tho i'd rather ask for the door leading to god realization room, anyhow which ever computer you ask that question you should take the other door to get to the room you want to go to.

    Re: Riddle

    yeah, either way you can figure out which door to go into or not go into.

    Re: Riddle

    You're sitting at a bar, the local explosively-dank-hole within some small crack of reality . . . you have an award that says, most likely to be the character in a riddle . . .

    looking around your attention finds a small chair with a mobile entity covering it with it's lesser half . . . It speaks, you hear "Glass of water please . . . "

    You see the bartender examine the seated man for a moment. He then reaches under the counter and pulls out a shotgun point-blank in the man's face. The seated man speaks again

    "Thank You" he says, and walks out of the bar . . . why did the man get what he needed?

    He had the hiccoughs...

    Assuming I'm right, as I've heard that one before:

    Who makes it, has no need of it.
    Who buys it, has no use for it.
    Who uses it can neither see nor feel it.

    Coffin.......oldy but a goodie.


    My love, when I gaze on thy beautiful face,
    Careering along, yet always in place --
    The thought has often come into my mind
    If I ever shall see thy glorious behind.
