Riddle:

You were once a judge in a chocolate eclair-making contest, and you awarded the blue ribbon for first place to an outstanding chef by the name of Vera Good. However, another disgruntled chef who lost the competition, whose name was Notu Swell, experienced a mental meltdown and a subsequent nervous breakdown over the loss. He vowed to seek revenge against you, blaming you entirely for his not winning. With the cunning of a serial killer, he was able to entrap you and imprison you in the basement of his house. Once he had you in his clutches, he approached you and revealed his evil plan: “You see before you, five chocolate eclairs which I just finished baking. I have piped a deadly poison into four of these, but the fifth one is poison-free. You must choose one of the five eclairs, based on the matching recipes I have handed you, and eat the eclair which you believe not to be the poisoned one. If you can identify The Only Chocolate Eclair Recipe Which Has No False Ingredient In It, then you may eat it safely, and I will then release you. However, I doubt you have the knowledge to properly judge which eclair recipe is the true one. At any rate, you must eat one of my pastries, if you ever again wish to see the light of day.” These are the five recipes from which you must choose. Your very life depends on it: RECIPE #1: 2 tbsp unsalted butter; 1/2 tsp salt; chocolate pastry cream; 1/2 cup whipping cream; 4 large eggs; 8 oz. semi-sweet chocolate; 1 oz. freshly ground paprika; 1 tbsp white sugar; 1 cup flour; 1 cup water. RECIPE #2: 2 tbsp unsalted butter; 1/2 tsp kosher salt; 2 oz. distilled white vinegar; vanilla pastry cream; 2 cups whole milk; 4 eggs; 1/2 cup confectioner’s sugar; 1 cup flour; 1 tsp vanilla extract. RECIPE #3: 2 tbsp unsalted butter; 1/2 tsp salt; chocolate pastry cream; 1/2 cup whipping cream; 4 large eggs; 1/4 cup chopped oregano; 8 oz. semi-sweet chocolate; 2 tbsp corn syrup; 1 cup flour; 1 cup water. RECIPE #4: 2 tbsp unsalted butter; 1/2 tsp salt; vanilla pastry cream; 1 cup whipping cream; 4 large eggs; 8 oz. semi-sweet chocolate; 1 tbsp white sugar; 1 cup flour; 2 tbsp corn syrup; 1 cup water. RECIPE #5: 2 tbsp unsalted butter; 1/2 tsp kosher salt; vanilla pastry cream; 2 cups of whole or 2% milk; 1/2 cup whipping cream; 2 cups finely chopped onion; 1/2 cup confectioner’s sugar; 4 large eggs; 8 oz. semi-sweet chocolate; 1 tsp vanilla extract; 1 tbsp white sugar; 1 cup flour. “Now, which of the five recipes is the ONLY one which contains no poison ——— THE ONLY ONE HAVING NO FALSE ECLAIR INGREDIENT?” Which one will you choose?

Answer:

Only RECIPE #4 has no false ingredient. The FALSE ingredients in the recipes are as follows: RECIPE #1 is Paprika. RECIPE #2 is Vinegar. RECIPE #3 is Oregano. RECIPE #5 is Chopped Onion. Did you survive?

Riddle:

In the 1950s, two young men, surrounded by a crowd of onlookers, stood on a round piece of wood preparing to do battle. Neither man carried any weapons of any kind, as they were both planning to use their feet to defeat their opponent. Sharp spikes on the bottoms of their boots turned their feet into the tools they would use to dispatch their adversary. One kick to the body or head could cause irreparable damage; but neither man ever struck the other with their spiked boots. In fact, not one physical blow was landed during the contest, and yet, one man was eliminated and sent to a watery grave. I thought these types of barbaric spectacles designed to satisfy the visual lusts of onlooking crowds had stopped after the gladiatorial days of ancient Rome. On the other hand, perhaps this scenario is not as violent as it appears to be. Exactly what was going on here?

Answer:

The two combatants were engaged in a log rolling contest during a lumberjack competition. The spiked boots aided them in keeping their footing on the slippery logs.

Riddle:

Bill, Tracy, Jack, and Jason find themselves trapped in a small room. Each of them was confined in a four-square box with electrified doors in the room and the four of them were all separated by three powerful electric lasers which meant that they could see each other. Fortunately, they had three sheets of paper with them which could help them get out. Bill was in the first box, Tracy was in the second box, Jack was in the third box and Jason was in the fourth box. The four of them were aware of certain events that would occur when they try to escape. They are as follows: 1. One sheet of paper could only be used to deactivate one electric laser. 2. It would take just two seconds (enough time to pass through) before the electric laser came back on. 3. If the electric laser separating Bill from Tracy was deactivated, the electrified door in Bill and Tracy's box would shut down and open but Jason would get fried up in his box. 4. If the electric laser separating Tracy from Jack was deactivated, then the electrified door in Jack's box and Jason's box would shut down and open but Bill would get fried up. 5. If the electric laser separating Jack and Jason was deactivated then the electrified door in Bill's box and Jason's box would shut down and open but Tracy would get fried up. They got out successfully. How did they do it?

Answer:

Bill and Tracy will have to deactivate the electric laser separating them at the same time Jack and Jason will also deactivate the electric laser separating them also. After that Tracy will have to move into Bill's box while Jason will move into Jack's box before it activates again. They will be left with a single sheet of paper which Jack and Jason will then use to deactivate the electric laser that was separating them before then they will move into Jason's box together and they call all get out before it activates again.

Riddle:

A man rode his horse to the top of a high hill. He tied his horse to a large birch tree, and removed a blanket, a flint and steel for making fire, and a small hatchet to cut down a bunch of green saplings. He then gathered a bunch of dried leaves and took them, along with the green saplings, to an open area near some smaller rocks. Using the flint and steel, he tried to start a fire with the leaves and green wood. As the fire struggled to burn, the man did something remarkable. He suddenly took his blanket and covered the fire with it. Apparently, regretting his actions, he removed the blanket from the smoldering fire; but then, a few seconds later, he placed the blanket back over the fire. Again and again he repeated his actions of throwing the blanket on and off the fire. Was this man an obsessive-compulsive pyromaniac, or was there some kind of method to his madness?

Answer:

The man was a Native American Indian in the old West who was sending smoke signals to his tribe.

Riddle:

A young woman has decided to stay alone on a very small, deserted island. She knows the dangers, and is well aware if she takes even one step off the island, she will most certainly be badly injured, and may possibly die. This island is not surrounded by water, and even though it is deserted, she knows she’ll be surrounded and observed by hundreds, perhaps even thousands of people who will be forced to look up to her. The record for remaining on this type of island was set back in 1964 when a woman remained on her island for 217 days, so this young woman has her work cut out for her. What kind of island is the young woman staying on, and why would she be risking her life by stepping off of it?

Answer:

The young woman is engaging in the famous fad of Pole Sitting, first made famous back in the 20s and 30s by a man named Alvin “Shipwreck” Kelly. The small platform is supported on a pole which ranges in length from 60 to over 200 feet in length above the ground.

Riddle:

George and his wife were found dead in a building, the detective on arrival found a bullet covered in blood in the room where the crime had been committed. The detective in charge of the case ordered his assistant to ask the maid, the security man, and the cook some questions that might help fish out the culprit. The assistant asked the maid where she was on the day this couple was killed, the maid replied that she wasn't around when the incident happened. She continued that she went to get groceries from the shop next door. The police asked the security man that why hadn't he heard any gunshot, the security man replied that he slept off as he was tired that day so he hadn't heard the gunshot. The assistant asked the cook what had happened on that day and she replied that she was cooking breakfast when she heard a noise in the couple's room. She continued that by the time she got to the room she saw the couples covered in their own pool of blood and she had immediately called the police nearby for help. The detective immediately knew who the culprit was. How did he know?

Answer:

The assistant was the culprit because the detective never told his assistant anything about a bullet. How did the assistant know that a gun was used to kill the COUPLES? He was only ordered to ask the maid, security man, and cook any questions that might help figure out who did it.
