Riddle 2

whats happening?

He has heart problems. Cardiac arrest. lol.



Riddle 3

A child is born in 1940, and dies in 2002, after his 15th birthday

how is this possible?



Even though the answer was he was born on a leap year, technically if he were born on another day, he still died after his 15th birthday.



Riddle 4

A panda is in a restraunt quietly eating.after he is done eating, he suddenly shoots a man! the panda is however, not apprehended because it is part of a panda's natural diet.

Just like ying_xiong said, a Cardiac arrest.
The man is having a cardiac arrest and died instantly, resulting for him to do nothing about it.

No, it's a trick question.

It's a baby for all of them.

You let it crawl around, then you cut off it's legs, and then you give them one back.

after he tells the king of this, the king doesn't listen to him, the king goes on the ship and comes back alive, afterward, he fires the Guard

Maybe the ship sank when the king was not riding it, or the king got on the ship for a moment, then got back out.

Yeah, the last one might be wrong, but still...

For the "Risk" question; I'm going to say 2 assumptions before giving my answer;
1) the fact that every first letter in "What Is Risk" is capitalized. Under these assumptions; you are either trying to point out something with emphasis or just like typing in caps.
2) Risk itself could be a misconception; do you really mean the literal definition of "Risk" or a metaphorical one. Or are you implying a physical object?

My answer is; This question is a Risk. (Because I'm a smart ass)

Khaimyn
07-11-2010, 11:11 PM

I believe you are making an assumption on his name "Ying Xiong" not being Zhuge Liang because of his avatar?

First off; Ying Xiong means The Hero (If I remember correctly from enough Chinese movie titles). Secondly; if I'm wrong oh well :3 you learned something new.

sorry, not correct, but good answer

oh well; mind throwing us a hint in the right direction?

07-11-2010, 11:20 PM
the correct answer has nothing to do with the meaning of risk.

your answer, "This question is a risk" was very very close though

"What Is Risk?"

Erm, I'd say Risk is a board game. Especially because of the capitalization. Although that's not particularly close to "This question is a risk." Just taking some stabs in the dark.

A friend told me this:

In a really dark alley where everything is painted black a man dressed completely in black is walking, when a car without headlights that is completely black drives with high speed, but manages to avoid hitting the man by stopping just before hitting him. Considering that no lights were on, the man didn't do anything and everything was painted black, how did the driver manage to avoid hitting the man?

Ghurdrich

Also, I'm stumped for the risk one, then :p

there is one plate filled with water. you have a lemon, a glass and a match. how do you get the water in the cup without touching the plate and using only the tools provided

and no, you can't get someone else to touch the plate, the plate must NOT move



1. He takes off the glass?

4. Footstool is a palindrome in morse code; it looks like this : ..-. --- --- - ... - --- --- .-..

5. Turn the cup upsidedown and put it on the plate.

Fenrir7
07-12-2010, 01:45 AM
4 is correct ( you googled didn't you? lol XD )but 1 and 5 aren't, you have to get ALL the water in the cup and for #1 the glass is still there and not damaged

Suppi
07-12-2010, 01:45 AM
heres the answer for #2The Answer Is....This. "This" is the answer because you are risking your life on one word and that is a risk

That's a horrible riddle. In terms of the gift of life; The greatest gift is to the gift of life itself; everything else is meaningless. So in terms with the risk of death; one should accept that death is inevitable and he has already been given the best of his life when he lived. There is no risk in dieing. The risk is will he have the opportunity to give life to others. (The only way that answer works is if you are selfish... which I admit everyone wants to live but bleh; beyond the point... the greater risk is if he has/panning to use the rest of his life wisely.)

(My answer had the same meaning... it just wasn't 1 single word. Also note "THIS" can imply not the situation or even the time and place but a more metaphorical understanding. "This" can be the answer but it refers to life itself.)

Hmm? No. My friend told me xD. I went on aim and raped peoples' minds with your brain teasers, but then my friend told me it. O.O I was like "Heheheh... TO THE FORUMS!"

As for number one... light the match and put it in the cup, then put it on the plate. The water will evaporate into the cup? xD

As for number one... light the match and put it in the cup, then put it on the plate. The water will evaporate into the cup? xD

Actually, that's not a half-bad idea. If you can find a way to keep the match from falling into the water (put it on the lemon?) The fire will use up all the oxygen making a pressure difference and thereby sucking the water into the cup. You can do the same with an egg resting in the top of a bottle. Try it sometime :p

Also, the lemon game me the idea of reverse osmosis (or is it just regular osmosis?). Osmose all the water into the lemon, then put the lemon into the cup xD

That said, I sorta don't think that's the answer xD

Riddle 5

there is one plate filled with water. you have a lemon, a glass and a match. how do you get the water in the cup without touching the plate and using only the tools provided

and no, you can't get someone else to touch the plate, the plate must NOT move

Impossible task. The plate is constantly moving with the crust of the earth; earth's rotation; the rotation around the sun; the suns drifting with the expansion of the galaxy; so on and so forth. (Also note; the molecules of a plate, no matter how solid; are composed of electrons and the like that are moving)

(Match in glass and putting the glass upside down will cut off the oxygen extinguishing the flames... that won't work)

Considering the plate is concave so the water would not fall out. I am baffled to figure out a purpose for the lemon/match to shift water to a cup. Here is my sad attempt at figuring this out.

Using the cup and lemon; you gore the lemon in half with your hand and scrape out as much moisture as you can. Using this process multiple times; you drain any liquid in the lemon into the cup. Using the match to further dry out the lemon of any moisture (how many do you have? match book or just 1?). Using the dried out lemon like a sponge; you start absorbing the water in the plate and transferring it to the cup.

Fenrir7
07-12-2010, 02:09 AM
First,you put the match into the lemon wedge, so that it would stand straight. Then you light the match, and put it in the middle of the plate with the lemon. Then,you place the glass upside-down over the match. As the flame used up the oxygen in the glass, it created a small vacuum, which sucked in the water through the space between the glass and the plate. Thus, you got water into the glass without touching or moving the plate.

the water is on a plate, so theres not a lot of water, the match is standing straight so theres not enough water reach the fire

i saw this on T.V on one of those science shows o.o

Suppi
07-12-2010, 02:21 AM
I don't understand; I thought the point was to get the water in the and cup and have a reasonable amount of it afterwords to have in the cup when you flip up rightside up ._.

That's like saying placing the cup upside down and letting condensation get some of the "Water" in the cup...

Ghurdrich
07-12-2010, 02:25 AM
Wordplay is half of riddles, dude. 'Get the water in the cup.' Create vacuum, water goes in cup. Mission accomplished :p

Come on everybody!
I say now let's play a game
I betcha I can make a rhyme out of anybody's name

Again, if this is the right answer, I'll be thoroughly surprised.


As for the shark one... Did he take the sharks out or something? That would make it not a shark tank anymore :p

2 and 4 are correct but number 1 is wrong

here is an extremely hard one i found on some website

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

There are six villages along the coast of the only perfectly round island in the known universe. The villages are evenly distributed along the coastline so that the distance between any two neighboring coastal villages is always the same. There is an absolutely straight path through the jungle connecting every pair of villages. These paths create thirteen crossings in the interior of the island, one of which is in the middle of the island where paths from every village meet.

The island has a strange courtship custom. Before a father will give permission for his daughter to marry, her suitor must bring the father a fish each day until he has traveled by every route from his village to the father's village. The young man only travels along routes where he is always getting closer to his destination. The young man may visit other villages along the way.

On April first a father's three sons come to tell him of their intent to woe a bride, each from a different village. The brides' villages are the first three villages encountered when traveling clockwise around the island.

If the sons begin their courtship today and the couples are married on the day following each son's last trip, what are the three wedding dates?

Bonus Question: If the coastline of the island is ten miles long, how long is the longest route that any of the sons takes to reach their betrothed's village?

What weighs more on the moon, but less on the earth. Well, seeing as how the moon has less gravity, you'd need to be talking about something metaphorically, or something else...

A balloon, seeing as how the atmosphere helps with buoyancy and keeps it afloat, but on the moon it would be heavier, or an astronauts conscience?

Riddle 1

a man is frustrated over trying to get people to not tap on the shark tank glass, he does something that gets them to stop, but he gets fired!

As for the answer for this one

He painted a crack on the glass, but since it made the shark tank look unsafe, people stopped coming, so his boss fired him

aww I was close.


what weighs more on the moon, but less on earth?
I was surprised it was a "scientific" riddle - I was thinking it was a political one, like "The American Flag" heh.

As for the six villages one.... Sry, my head exploded. :confused:

As for the six villages one. Copy and paste the question into google. Shit brixz at how complicated the answers are D:<

the answer is The wedding dates are April 6th, May 12th, and August 1st.
Bonus question: ~ 6.86 miles.


All villages are crossings. Here are the steps to determine the number of routes to reach any point:

1) First set the starting point to one.
2) Select the unvisited crossing that is adjacent to a visited crossing and is closer to the destination, but which is the farthest such unvisited crossing from the destination.
3) Set this crossing to the sum of the values for all of the adjacent visited crossings. (If you do this in the correct order, all the adjacent visited crossings are farther from the destination.)
4) If the last selected crossing is not the destination then continue with step two.

Which points are closer or farther from the destination can be determined using the right triangles formed by the intersecting paths. The shortest path from a point to a line is perpendicular to the line. Moving toward the right angle formed by the path and the line is moving closer to the point; moving away from this right angle is moving farther from the point.

Note that when moving from a village to the opposite village that all of the crossings to the left of the direct path between the villages are symmetrical with the corresponding crossing to the right.


The routes:

This is a little hard to follow without a diagram, so you might want to create one. The diagram is a regular hexagon with lines connecting each pair of vertices. There are three intersections created along each of these connecting lines, with the three lines connecting opposite vertices meeting in the middle. Label one vertex A and moving clockwise, label the remaining vertices B-F. Label the middle intersection M. Label the intersection along the path from A to M (path AM) as Ai; label the similar intersections for the remaining vertices as Bi to Fi. Label the intersection of paths AC and BF as ABi. Label the similar intersections BCi, CDi, DEi, EFi and FAi.


Routes to an adjacent village (A to B):

To determine the routes from A to B first set A to 1.
The farthest point from B that is closer than A and adjacent to A is Ai. Ai can only be reached from A, so set Ai to 1.
The next farthest point is ABi. ABi can be reached from A and Ai so set ABi to 1+1=2.
The next farthest point is Bi. Bi can only be reached from ABi, so set Bi to 2.
The next farthest point is the destination B. B can be reached from A, ABi and Bi, so set B to 1+2+2=5.

There are five routes to an adjacent village, so that son will make his last trip on April 5th and the wedding will be the next day on April 6th.


Routes to the second village along the coast (A to C):

A = 1
AFi = A = 1
Fi = AFi = 1
Ai = A + AFi = 2
ABi = Ai + A = 3
M and B are equidistant from C, so in either order:
M = Ai + Fi = 3
B = A + ABi = 4
Bi and Di are equidistant from C, so in either order:
Bi = B + ABi + M = 10
Di = M = 3
BCi and CDi are equidistant from C, so in either order:
BCi = B + Bi = 14
CDi = Di = 3
Ci = BCi + CDi + M = 20
C = B + BCi + CDi + Ci = 41

There are 41 routes from A to C, so that son will make his last trip on May 11th and the wedding will be the next day on May 12th.


Routes to the opposite village (A to D):

Since the intersections to the left and right of the direct path are mirrors, the left-side calculation is assigned to both.
A = 1
F, B = A = 1
FAi, ABi = A + B = 2
Ai = A + ABi + FAi = 5
Fi, Bi = ABi + B = 3
EFi, BCi = B + Bi = 4
M, C and E are equidistant from D, so in any order:
M = Ai + Fi + Bi = 11
E, C = B + BCi = 5
Ei, Ci = BCi + M + C = 20
DEi, CDi = C + Ci = 25
Di = M + CDi + DEi = 61
D = C + E + CDi + DEi + Di = 121

There are 121 routes from A to D, so that son will make his last trip on July 31st and the wedding will be the next day on August 1st.


Bonus Question:

The longest route is a route to the opposite village. Given the above diagram, the longest routes the son will have to travel from A to D is:

A-B-ABi-C-Ci-CDi-Di-D

and the mirror route

A-F-FAi-E-Ei-DEi-Di-D

(ABi-C is the same as ABi-Bi-BCi-C)

If the circumference is 10 miles then the diameter is 10/Pi miles and the radius is 5/Pi miles. Since a regular hexagon is formed from six equilateral triangles, the length of a side of the hexagon is equal to its radius.

The path A-B is then 5/Pi miles. The path B-D bisects the path C-M, so both C-Ci and Di-D are half the radius. A-B + C-Ci + Di-D is then equal to the diameter 10/Pi.

The paths B-ABi, ABi-BCi, and BCi-C are all sides of equilateral triangles with a height of one half of the radius. The paths Ci-CDi and CDi-Di are each half of the side of one of these same triangles. The side of one of these equilateral triangles is

5/(sqrt(3)*Pi)

So the total distance traveled is

10/Pi + 4*(5/(sqrt(3)*Pi)) = 10/Pi + 20/(sqrt(3)*Pi) ~ 6.86 miles

See, even if you were to die you wouldn't end the game since someone else is still playing. And if someone else isn't playing an animal is playing. And if not an animal then a plant or bacteria.

And if not on Earth, out in space somewhere.
