    1) A man was to be sentenced, and the judge told him, "You may make a statement. If it is true, I'll sentence you to four years in prison. If it is false, I'll sentence you to six years in prison." After the man made his statement, the judge decided to let him go free. What did the man say?

    2)How many letters are in the alphabet?

    3)What English word retains the same pronunciation, even after you take away four of its five letters?

    4)How did a man legally marry three women in Michigan, without divorcing any of them, becoming legally separated, or any of them dying?

    5) What row of numbers comes next in this series?

    1
    11
    21
    1211
    111221
    312211
    13112221

    1) You'll sentence me to 6 years in prison, which contradicts the truth, and the 4 year penalty. Actually had to think a while on this one^^
    2) 11, seven are different, 4 are repeated. T-H-E A-L-P-H-A-B-E-T
    3) queue, take away "ueue" and it still has Q.
    4) He is either a judge or a priest, who married the women to other people.
    5) 1113213211, each line describes the previous one.

    I win?
    ONE one, 11, TWO ones, 21, ONE two one one, and so on.

    That is bs lol
    errrmm how about this one:

    The story behind Einstein's riddle is that Albert Einstein created it in the late 1800s, and claimed that 98% of the world population couldn't solve it. I am not sure of the true origin, but I have seen this one floating around the internet, and it is a good brain exercise. Here it is:
    - In a street there are five houses, painted five different colors.
    - In each house lives a person of different nationality.
    - These five homeowners each drink a different kind of beverage, smoke different brand of cigar and keep a different pet.
    Einstein's riddle is: Who owns the fish?


    Necessary clues:
    1. The British man lives in a red house.
    2. The Swedish man keeps dogs as pets.
    3. The Danish man drinks tea.
    4. The Green house is next to, and on the left of the White house.
    5. The owner of the Green house drinks coffee.
    6. The person who smokes Pall Mall rears birds.
    7. The owner of the Yellow house smokes Dunhill.
    8. The man living in the center house drinks milk.
    9. The Norwegian lives in the first house.
    10. The man who smokes Blends lives next to the one who keeps cats.
    11. The man who keeps horses lives next to the man who smokes Dunhill.
    12. The man who smokes Blue Master drinks beer.
    13. The German smokes Prince.
    14. The Norwegian lives next to the blue house.
    15. The Blends smoker lives next to the one who drinks water.



    GL
