Easy Riddle
 
It is greater than God and more evil than the devil. The poor have it, the rich need it and if you eat it you'll die. What is it?

two coins equal 0.55$ one of the coins is not a nickle. what are the two coins?

x2495iiii 05-26-2011 07:00 PM

Nickel is how it's spelled.

And it's a half dollar and a nickel.

legolizard 05-26-2011 07:03 PM

Interesting, I have not heard that one. The only [I] feasible[/I] way I can see is that by [QUOTE]one of the coins is not a nickel[/QUOTE] you mean that one of the coins is one coin and the other is a nickel this making one of them a half dollar and the other a nickel. So I think it is a trick question but I do not know.:confused:

Basically what x2495iiii said, sorry but I was still typing when you mr.X had already answered it.

DeathxKiller 05-26-2011 07:11 PM

i am allergic to water. you cant touch me. i need oxygen. and you can blow me out. what am i?

legolizard 05-26-2011 07:12 PM

A candle or fire.

DeathxKiller 05-26-2011 07:14 PM

I am the beginning of the end, and the end of time and space. I am essential to creation, and I surround every place. What am I?

legolizard 05-26-2011 07:25 PM

That is odd because there is no finite ending to space nor time so this must alos be a trick question. Hmmmm.....:(

Taking a wild guess here but is it 'e'. The only part this does not make sense is the between part so again I'm not sure.:confused:

DeathxKiller 05-26-2011 07:26 PM

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 ?

legolizard 05-26-2011 08:00 PM

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

not quite. you ask him if he wopuld show you the way to his village, if he is the liar he will show you to the village of the truths; if he tells the truth he will show you to the village of truths.:D

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

you're in a box that has only a mirror in it. how do you get out? there is no door or window to get out of. just a mirror.

[QUOTE=DeathxKiller;36495]you're in a box that has only a mirror in it. how do you get out? there is no door or window to get out of. just a mirror.[/QUOTE]

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?
