Riddle:

I'm by nature solitary, scarred by spear and wounded by sword, weary of battle. I frequently see the face of war, and fight hateful enemies; yet I hold no hope of help being brought to me in the battle, before I'm eventually done to death. In the stronghold of the city sharp-edged swords, skilfully forged in the flame by smiths, bite deeply into me. I can but await a more fearsome encounter; it is not for me to discover in the city any of those doctors who heal grievous wounds with roots and herbs. The scars from sword wounds gape wider and wider; death blows are dealt to me by day and by night.

General Gasslefield, accused of high treason, is sentenced to death by the court-martial. He is allowed to make a final statement, after which he will be shot if the statement is false or will be hung if the statement is true. Gasslefield makes his final statement and is released.

The Question: What could he have said?

Answer:

General Gasslefield said: "I will be shot." If this statement was true, he would have been hung and thus not be shot. But then his statement would be false, which implies that he should be shot, making the statement true again, etc... In other words: the verdict of the court-martial could not be executed and the general was released.

Riddle:

You and nine other individuals have been captured by super intelligent alien overlords. The aliens think humans look quite tasty, but their civilization forbids eating highly logical and cooperative beings. Unfortunately, they're not sure whether you qualify, so they decide to give you all a test.  Through its universal translator, the alien guarding you tells you the following: You will be placed in a single-file line facing forward in size order so that each of you can see everyone lined up ahead of you. You will not be able to look behind you or step out of line. Each of you will have either a black or a white hat on your head assigned randomly, and I won't tell you how many of each color there are.

When I say to begin, each of you must guess the color of your hat starting with the person in the back and moving up the line. And don't even try saying words other than black or white or signaling some other way, like intonation or volume; you'll all be eaten immediately. If at least nine of you guess correctly, you'll all be spared. You have five minutes to discuss and come up with a plan, and then I'll line you up, assign your hats, and we'll begin. Can you think of a strategy guaranteed to save everyone? Alex Gendler shows how.

Answer:

Let's see how it would play out if the hats were distributed like this. The tallest captive sees three black hats in front of him, so he says "black," telling everyone else he sees an odd number of black hats. He gets his own hat color wrong, but that's okay since you're collectively allowed to have one wrong answer. Prisoner two also sees an odd number of black hats, so she knows hers is white, and answers correctly.  Prisoner three sees an even number of black hats, so he knows that his must be one of the black hats the first two prisoners saw. Prisoner four hears that and knows that she should be looking for an even number of black hats since one was behind her. But she only sees one, so she deduces that her hat is also black. Prisoners five through nine are each looking for an odd number of black hats, which they see, so they figure out that their hats are white. Now it all comes down to you at the front of the line. If the ninth prisoner saw an odd number of black hats, that can only mean one thing. You'll find that this strategy works for any possible arrangement of the hats.

The first prisoner has a 50% chance of giving a wrong answer about his own hat, but the parity information he conveys allows everyone else to guess theirs with absolute certainty. Each begins by expecting to see an odd or even number of hats of the specified color. If what they count doesn't match, that means their own hat is that color. And every time this happens, the next person in line will switch the parity they expect to see. So that's it, you're free to go. It looks like these aliens will have to go hungry, or find some less logical organisms to abduct.

Riddle:

Before he turned physics upside down, a young Albert Einstein supposedly showed off his genius by devising a complex riddle involving a stolen exotic fish and a long list of suspects. Can you resist tackling a brain teaser written by one of the smartest people in history? Dan Van der Vieren shows how.

Answer:

The key is that the person at the back of the line who can see everyone else's hats can use the words "black" or "white" to communicate some coded information.  So what meaning can be assigned to those words that will allow everyone else to deduce their hat colors?  It can't be the total number of black or white hats.  There are more than two possible values, but what does have two possible values is that number's parity, that is whether it's odd or even.  So the solution is to agree that whoever goes first will, for example, say "black" if he sees an odd number of black hats and "white" if he sees an even number of black hats.  Let's see how it would play out if the hats were distributed like this.  The tallest captive sees three black hats in front of him, so he says "black," telling everyone else he sees an odd number of black hats.  He gets his own hat color wrong, but that's okay since you're collectively allowed to have one wrong answer.  Prisoner two also sees an odd number of black hats, so she knows hers is white, and answers correctly.  Prisoner three sees an even number of black hats, so he knows that his must be one of the black hats the first two prisoners saw.  Prisoner four hears that and knows that she should be looking for an even number of black hats since one was behind her.  But she only sees one, so she deduces that her hat is also black.  Prisoners five through nine are each looking for an odd number of black hats, which they see, so they figure out that their hats are white.  Now it all comes down to you at the front of the line.  If the ninth prisoner saw an odd number of black hats, that can only mean one thing.  You'll find that this strategy works for any possible arrangement of the hats.  The first prisoner has a 50% chance of giving a wrong answer about his own hat, but the parity information he conveys allows everyone else to guess theirs with absolute certainty.  Each begins by expecting to see an odd or even number of hats of the specified color.  If what they count doesn't match, that means their own hat is that color.  And every time this happens, the next person in line will switch the parity they expect to see.

There is a door, on the side of the door that you are on, there is a skeletal army ready to trample you underneath their feet, on the other side is a city with a wall that will keep you safe. You need to get in the door but there is some sort of code to get into safety; one man goes to the door, and the doorkeeper says "eight" and the man says "five" he lets him in. The second man goes up to the door and the doorkeeper says "nine" and the second man says "four", and he lets him in. Finally, it's your turn, you only get one chance to guess. The doorkeeper says "twenty one". What do you say to get to safety?

Answer:

You would say "nine" as, 21 is nine letters long. It's quite simple actually. Eight is five letters long hence "five" and nine is four letters long hence the word "four".

Answer:
the answer is "turds". want to know how to get this answer? here it is:

decifered -


read this backwards and you shall see
the riddle will reveal itself to thee

the clue is a number
the answer is not
caused through inorder
currently out of order
the answer lies within


after this, the top paragraph is used for only one thing.
the word "backwards"

after you decifer the riddle, you still have to do some
backwards reading.
"the clue is a number". to get this number, count the number of
words in each line, for the first, its 5.
count from the end of the line "r" and count 5 letters back.
you end with "u".
do the same for the rest, and you end with :

"usdrt"

the next part, is a riddle in itself.
"caused through inorder
currently out of order
the answer lies within"

the "caused through inorder" is suggesting an anagram.
the "answer lies within" means that the answer is the solved
anagram.

if we solve the anagram, we come up with two results that make
sense.
"durst" and "turds"
now think, a teenager made this riddle, it would seem strange
having an answer like "durst" leaving only one possibility.

yep, you guessed it.
the answer is "turds"

I will then bring you together and give each of you one chance to try to figure out what colored stone you hvae on top of your head by looking at the stones on the others heads.not only must you figure out waht color you hvae, but you must be able to tell me how you did it." this he did. bringing them together he said to the first one "what is the color of the stone on your head?". the wiseman responded, "there is not enough information for me to guess." and so teh king killed him. the second one also could not figure out what color stone he had on his head. so the king killed him to. finally the king asked teh third, completely blind wiseman. this wiseman told the king what color he had, and how he figured it out. and keeping his word the king let him go. how did this man figure it out?

Monadic beings live and fare;

this is long and hard to understand, so pay attention! a man is framed in killing his mother in a horrific car accident. before he is sent to jail, the imposter visits him and tells him not to do it. out of anger, he kills him and searches him to find a time machine. he decides to use it to save his mother and clear his name, all with a little help from the man who ruined his life. when he is in jail, he considers the man's words and thinks what he does may disrupt the time space continuim. he changes his mind, but suddenly, something horrible occurs. something even worse than you can imagine. what?
Answer:

the universe is destroyed.



explaination: in an ironic twist, the man brings the destruction he hoped to end. in a predestined time paradox, the man was supposed to go back in time to save his mother. he steals a car to try to warn her, but his determination to save her causes him to speed and kill his mother. an example of the self-fulfilling paradox. he survives the incident, and travels to the time obtained the time machine. he warns his past self not to go back in time, but thinking it's to assure his mother's death, he kills his future self. thinking about his future self's words, he doesn't go back in time, thus not allow the paradox to take place and destroying the very fabric of the universe.

Riddle:
I'm by nature solitary, scarred by spear
and wounded by sword, weary of battle.
I frequently see the face of war, and fight
hateful enemies; yet I hold no hope
of help being brought to me in the battle,
before I'm eventually done to death.
In the stronghold of the city sharp-edged swords,
skilfully forged in the flame by smiths,
bite deeply into me. I can but await
a more fearsome encounter; it is not for me
to discover in the city any of those doctors
who heal grievous wounds with roots and herbs.
The scars from sword wounds gape wider and wider;
death blows are dealt to me by day and by night.

What am I?
Answer:
A shield.
