Unless you have a new spin on it, this one's kind of like "How many animals did Moses take on the ark?" :eek: It's been around so much that few get fooled by it.

Personally I like questions such as "Why does Hawaii have interstate highways?" :p much better.

Well the trick is in that people say Adam.

Well we are all Gods children and Adam was conceived on Earth so I think it would be Adam unless you mean the first person to be born from another person then it would probably be Eve (made from Adam's rib) but if you mean someone conceived the traditional way then yeah it would be cain, he was also the first to murder someone.

We are all God's children, it is true, but even though I am a Mormon I don't recognize the Genesis story (either of them: there are actually 2 creation stories in there) as being literally true. I'm too much of a scientist to believe in the literal interpretation of the Bible. So as far as I am concerned, TPH's question can be answered in the context of the religion of your choice.

(I'm a baaaad Mormon. :eek: What can I say?)

Life?? Universe???

Nothing, if i remember this right.

> 4)My own: "Can God destroy himself?" - in fact I have a very responsible answer. Instead of philosophical.

No, of course, how would that happen?

> 5)What is wrong with this (I posted it before to make a point):

Assume 2 = 6

Then subtract 4,

-2=2

Now square,

4=4

Thus,

2=6. What happend?

Yeah, what happend? I'm getting confused here.

> 6)

$\displaystyle a=1$

$\displaystyle a^2=1$

$\displaystyle a^2-a=1-a$

$\displaystyle a(a-1)=-(a-1)$

$\displaystyle a=-1$

$\displaystyle -1=1$

Division by zero.

> 7)When does, $\displaystyle 1+1=0$?

When you are doing "modular arithmetic"? :D

> 8)How can you get 4 gallons using 5 and 3 gallon cups.

Fill a 5 cup and pour ower to a 3 cup until the 3 cup is full. It's 2 gallons in the 5 cup. Do that one more time with another 5 and 3 cup. Pour ower the liquid from one of the 5 cups to the other.

> 9)You have 10 piles of 10 books. Each pile weighs diffrently .9 kilograms and one weighs 1 kilogram. Using a scale**once**find which pile is the 1 kilogram.

Place a different number of books from each pile on the scale. Myltiply the total number of books by 0.9 kg and see how much it differs on the scale. Divide the result by 0.1 kg and thats the number of books you took from the pile in which the books wheighted differently.

> 10)A man jumps out of the window then the phone rings and then he regretted his decision. Why?

He remembers he has forgotten the keys in his appartment and there is no way for him to answer the phone, because the door to the building is locked and it can only be unlocked with a key. He lands safetly on the lawn two meters down outside the building and grumbles as he walks away.

> 11)Several man drink in a bar. Everyone has the same drinks. Everyone dies except for one, how? (Use this to assacinate people)

Offcourse he was the one who poisoned the rest of them.

> 12)In a middle of field are lying a carrot and buttons, why?

I dont really know why. Tell me! Please!

> 13)A man takes an elevator downstairs but walks up stairs, why? (Cool answer)

It requires energy moving yourself up but moving down releases energy so he loses energy, and warmth = energy, hence he gets cooler?

> 14)How can you win in chess in 2 moves?

You make a good move and the other person give up. :cool: As my grandma always use to do.

> 15)Here is a trick question: What is the tallest mountain in the world?

Mount Everest, that's for sure.

> 16)My favorite: "Napolean invites three smartest people in the world to prove they are the smartest. The people are Artistotle, Newton and CaptainBlank. He blindfolds everyone and places a hat on their head. Eveyone either has a black or white. Napolean announces that all 3 cannot be white and removes the blindfold. CaptainBlank sees Aristotle having a black and Newton having a black hat but he is thinking what do I have? Eventually after many hours he stand up and scream,...'My colour is...'. What was the color and how did CaptainBlank know?

Hehe, funny :D If he has a white hat, the others must be thinking "if I got a white hat to, then the one with the black hat must have figured out he can't have a white hat as well, and he would have said a long time ago he has a black hat, and he hasn't done, so I must have a black hat". Now, anyone hasn't said so yet and a long time has past, so CaptainBlank must be screaming "My colour is black!"

> I got hunderds more.

Bah, you stole the one riddle was gonna post! ;) - Nov 18th 2006, 07:33 PMThePerfectHacker
I hate it when you say a riddle and a person says an answer in a question form. Implying he did not solve it, because if he did then it would make sense and he would not be required to ask but say.

The man was the only surviving human on earth. He was unhappy of that fact seeing everyone dead and wanted to kill himself. As he jumped out of the window he realized that he was not the only one but rather someone was calling him, another human. And he realized he made a mistake.

The answer is that the all the men did not know it was poison. But the poison was the ice cubes. The only man use survived was the one who drank quickly before the ice melted and gave the poison. The rest drank too slowly and induced poison invetibly dieing.
