lol the answer is "e"
Think of words ending in -GRY. Angry and hungry are two of them. There are only three words in the English language. What is the third word? The word is something that everyone uses every day. If you have listened carefully, I have already told you what it is.

A man is traveling to a town and comes to a fork in the road. If he goes left, he goes to the liars' village. If he goes right, he then goes to the village of truths - which is where he wants to go. However, he does not know which way is which.

He doesn't have time to go both routes, so he approaches a stranger who is standing in the middle of the fork. The stranger says he may only ask 3 questions and he will answer them.

The man asks, "Are you from the village of truths?" The stranger says, "Yes!" However, the man is still facing a dilemma: If the stranger was from the village of truths he can only tell the truth, but if he was from the village of liars, he would say he was from the village of truth.

So then he asks the stranger, "Are you telling the truth?" The stranger says, "Yes!" But sadly this leaves the man in the same position as before.

Can you figure it out ?

Okay well at the moment I can not think of any, and I'm trying not to use Google.:(
However I believe it is a trick question and that the answer is language.

The next one is easy. I would ask him something that I know for a fact that it is true, such as does a^2 + b^2=c^2. If he says yes then he is telling the truth, else he is lying:p

I once solved this riddle it was [SIZE="7"]really[/SIZE] hard, but in the end the answer was the German. Also this is Einsteins riddle and he was German so I always thought of that as a little coincidence:D

This is one of those wordplay ones.:D

You take the mirror to see what you saw, you take the saw and cut the mirror in half, then two halves make a whole so you climb out the hole.

Now for one of my riddles.

I am lighter than air yet as large as a castle, yet all the kings horses and all the kings men can't move me, nor break me. What am I?
