Correct

"I have come here to be hung" to be precise.

He cannot hang you for you have told the truth.

He cannot let you go for you would have then been lying.

That is the truth - you will be permitted to proceed.


What Occamassain Said
you told the truth as here was your destination and he can't allow you to proceed because you are already there.

This is a pretty well known one, I think, but the first time I heard it I was stumped:

What is more powerful than God, more evil than the Devil, poor people have it, rich people need it, and if you eat it you will die?

Yesterday a friend asked me to help him out with a brain teaser he is trying to figure out, I thought id be able to come up with the answer but can't seem to find the answer


I was thinking of googling but rather find out if anyone here on ATS knows the answer.

The brain teaser is:

A man comes home, makes dinner, eats dinner, then turns off the lights and goes to sleep. The next morning the man makes breakfast, turns on the radio, and then kills himself.

He killed himself when he turned on the radio. So there's something wrong with the radio..maybe it electrocuted him.

The riddle part is that you assume he committed suicide.

"A man comes home, makes dinner, eats dinner, then turns off the lights and goes to sleep. The next morning the man makes breakfast, turns on the radio, and then kills himself. "....woke up to election results of 2012
this was about the guy in florida right...


"What is more powerful than God, more evil than the Devil, poor people have it, rich people need it, and if you eat it you will die?"...probably nothing...

The man keeps a lighthouse. He turned off the lighthouse when he turned out the lights. He heard on the radio that a ship crashed because there was no beacon, and he killed himself for his failure.

I heard this one in fifth grade.

Here is another.

A person comes across a pair of naked humans that have been exposed by receding permafrost(lets just say for the sake of it....Al Gore was right) in remote wilderness. The person is convinced that they are Adam and Eve by merely looking at the bodies.
How does he/she know?

Some great riddles! Here's mine:

A man is one of two survivors of some sort of nautical disaster, stranded on a ship floating for weeks without sight of land. Upon being rescued, he locates a restaurant that has Albatross Soup on the menu. He orders a bowl, and when it arrives, has one taste of the soup, then goes outside and kills himself.

the other survivor was he buddy the albatross that restaurant just killed and served up...perhaps

I think the clue is "no sight of land", I reckon he is blind, the other survivor has been feeding him the non survivors but lied and said it was albatross. When he tastes albatross in the restaurant he realises he hasn't eaten albatross at all, possibly friends or family instead, can't hack it and tops himself.

That's the only thing I can think of.

I reckon eating albatross alone is enough to make me wanna kill myself, sounds big and disgusting.....although albatross buffalo wings would be awesome!
