The 5 Riddles....


THESE ARE SOME OF THE BEST RIDDLES I HAVE SEEN....THE ANSWERS ARE AT THE BOTTOM. DON’T HURT YOURSELF WHILE TRYING TO FIGURE THESE OUT. AND NO PEEKING AT THE ANSWERS.

 

RIDDLE #5 IS AMAZING. IT SHARPENS THOSE GENES IN YOUR
BRAIN AND STALLS ALZHEIMER'S FOR YEARS!!


1. A murderer is condemned to death. He has to choose between three rooms. The first is full of raging fires, the second is full of assassins with loaded guns, and the third is full of lions that haven't eaten in 3 years. Which room is safest for him?

 


2. A woman shoots her husband. Then she holds him under water for over 5 minutes. Finally, she hangs him. But 5 minutes later they both go out together and enjoy a wonderful dinner together. How can this be?

 


3. What is black when you buy it, red when you use it, and gray when you throw it away ?

 


4. Can you name three consecutive days without using the words Wednesday, Friday, or Sunday?

 


5. This is an unusual paragraph. I'm curious as to just how quickly you can find out what is so unusual about it. It looks so ordinary and plain that you would think nothing was wrong with it. In fact, nothing is wrong with it! It is highly unusual though. Study it and think about it, but you still may not find anything odd. But if you work at it a bit, you might find out. Try to do so without any coaching!

 

 

 

 

 



THE ANSWERS TO ALL FIVE OF THE RIDDLES ARE BELOW
:

 

 

 

1. The third room. Lions that haven't eaten in three years are dead.
That one was easy, right?


2. The woman was a photographer. She shot a picture of her husband, developed it, and hung it up to dry (shot; held under water; and hung).


3. Charcoal, as it is used in barbecuing.


4. Sure you can name three consecutive days, yesterday, today, and tomorrow!


5. The letter e, which is the most common letter used in the English language, does not appear even once in the paragraph.

How did you do??? My sister in law sends me stuff like this every so often. I did not get then all. They are fun some times.

I thought I better share this card with you before it gets lost. It is one of CC designs. They have all kinds of really cute images. My images is called Swiss Pixie Fall Birgitta Digi Images. I get my images from All that Scraps if you would like to stop at the store. Please do.. I know they are having a clearance going on right now. I used one of those punches that embosses as it punches out mine was leaves. I added some Stickles glitter glue called star dust  to give it some sparkle. Used what are called Beadzs on the sunflowers and her wings just for something different. They are real tiny Beads that come in all kinds of colors. I also used the corner punch from Creative Memories. I added a metal plate to the card that says Inspire. Of course a bottom.just waiting markers 

I do hope you enjoy my card. I colored it with copic markers. I have good week. Until next time, remember if you give someone a smile most of the time you will get a smile back.

Happy Crafting….

Here is a little story. My daughter in law Jessica comes over and says to me, Mom, I need a gift card did you make any this year. So I told her, I sure did, so I asked her how many do you need and Jessica said just one. Of course I gave it to her. Well to my surprise on Christmas I got my gift card that I made right back but I sure liked what was in it. Of course I said, You guys… My son Kurt said we could not tell you Mom, it was for you.
