Posted:U tell a riddle. Basic Rules. Guess it. He/she/thing who guesses correctly wins and tells the next one...

I'll start.

When it is broken, it still works.
Beating pains it not...

bit small and crappy, but a bit hard.

Posted:It's an old one but good.

There was a story of two clans that were identical in appearance, lived in two seperate villages and one clan told the truth and the other told lies. The clan that told the truth gave great riches to anyone who would or could drop by... One day a traveller was searching for the fabled clans and came across a split in the road. Out appeared two people from the two different clans on each side. With only asking the same one question to each person (knowing that one lies and one tells the truth) he found the right clan and claimed his riches.

What question did he ask?

Posted:He asks, 'which is the road to your village'
The truth teller points him in the right direction, ie. to the truth tellers village.
The liar points the way to the other blokes village, (the truth tellers village again) cos he's a liar.

So, there you go.

That answer also works if you only meet one villager and don't know what village he's from.

Posted:Oh s**t.

My turn?

I should have kept my trap shut.

I can't think of one.

Ok

A man works on the top floor of an office block.
Every day he gets in the lift and goes half way up and then walks the rest of the way.
At the end of the day he gets in the lift on the top floor and goes all the way down to the ground.
But when he goes to work the next day he will again get the lift only half way and then walk to the top.
Why?

Posted:B/C the man is so short that he can only reach to halfway on the buttons,
so he pushes halway and goes down the rest.

Posted:okay you. I downloaded a copy of the hobbit as the book I have is falling apart. Then searched the text. Not sure if that's technically cheating but here's your answer.

"Fish on a little table, man at a table sitting on a stool, the cat has the bones."

Happy now, are ya? *sigh*

Posted:This is one I like to tell to people:

In a house you have one light on the first floor and three switches in the basement. One of these works the light but you can only go upstairs to check the bulb once.
How do you tell which switch operates the light?
