Default Post your favorite riddle or paradox

Riddle:
What is too much for one, enough for two, but nothing at all for three?

Paradox:

Paradox of existence.

Existence is demonstrably paradoxical, that is, it apparently does not make rational sense. Nature makes an inordinate amount of sense but existence itself is patently irrational and, thus, possibly supernatural. Nonetheless, attempts to rationally explain existence have proliferated since the dawn of humanity, but all of these have led back to paradox rather than resolving the paradox of existence.

One proposed explanation for existence is that it just is, and is not contingent on a cause or anything else for that matter. This is rhetorical nonsense. You might as well say dill pickles explain the meaning of life for all we are able to meaningfully glean from such a statement. It does not begin to describe much less account for existence but, at best, can be interpreted as an affirmation or expression of humor.

Others have argued that the reality of our existence is self-evident, and to think otherwise is pointless and often destructive solipsism. As Aart Van Der Leeuw put it succinctly, "The mystery of life is not a problem to be solved, but a reality to be experienced."Ě Whether true or not, this decidedly pessimistic and anti-intellectual attitude fails to resolve the paradox in any intelligible manner. Rather than supplying an explanation or evidence for the origin, disposition, and authenticity of existence, it perfunctorily dismisses the wisdom of exploring the mystery.

Interesting thread, great idea!

Here's a riddle/game for you:
Imagine a circle with a dot in the middle (kind of like a bull's eye in darts).
The dot and the circle can't be connected with a line so they are completely detached from another.

The task is to draw this shape (circle with a separate dot in the middle) using one continuous movement of the pen. Try this on any kind of paper and remember, the pen can't be lifted to draw the circle and the dot separately, it has to be one movement with the pen.

(The circle can be any size of course.)

Good luck!

Dang that's hard. Technically I could use the side of the 'brass' part without making a line. The pen technically doesn't lift off.

dappwl, difficult to describe in words, but fold the corner of the paper and place pen to do the dot. Draw back on to the corner of the said paper and come off to draw the circle.
Easier done that said.

My attempt:





Here's one:
You are alone in the basement. You see three light switches. They are all "off".

Up two flights of stairs (where you can not see from the basement) there's a room with three light bulbs in it that are each controlled by the three switches (one switch per bulb).

You can only go up the stairs once.

How do you find out which switch controls which bulb?

No other tools or devices can be used. The house is otherwise empty.

This is the only joke I ever made up, which isnít necessarily funny to you...

How many nymphomaniacs does it take to screw in a light bulb?

There once were three traveling salesmen that happened upon the same remote inn for lodgings one night. The innkeeper charged each guest ten dollars for a room for a thirty dollar total. When he told his wife what he had done, she scolded him for charging so much. They will never return said she. She gave her husband five dollars to return to the salesmen so that they would be fairly charged and might return another time. The husband, not knowing exactly how he might divide the five dollars three ways decides he would give each salesman back a dollar and put the remaining two dollars in his pocket.
After the refunding, each salesman spent nine dollars for a room and the husband had two in his pocket. 3 x 9 = 27 and 27 + 2 = 29. Where is the missing dollar?

For a good reason... it's a good one! I've been trying to come up with another...

Not a riddle:

A rancher passed away leaving his three sons 13 horses to be divided this way. The oldest a half of the horses, the middle son a third, and the youngest a quarter. The boys were fighting about how to settle the matter when a stranger rode up. After hearing their plight he got off his horse and got on one of the thirteen. He tells the boys.. this is easy.. now there are twelve horses. The oldest gets a half or six horses. The middle boy gets a third of twelve, four. And three horses for the youngest is a quarter of twelve. Now six plus four plus 3 equals thirteen... problem solved. He gets back on his horse and rides off into the sunset.

That was a rancher that couldn't do math. Or he was trying to set his boys on each other.

Here's an easy one -You are in a room with two closed doors, in fron of each door is a man. One always tells the truth, the other always lies.

One door leads to freedom and riches, the other leads to certain horrible death.

You can ask ONE question only, to whichever man you choose.

What is the question that guarantees you freedom and riches?

ANSWER:






I like that one because I can never just remember the answer, I have to figure it out every time.

Riddle me this...

There is a ship floating in a bay that has a rope ladder hanging from the side. The ladder is 18 feet long with each rung centered every 9 inches. The bottom rung is just touching the water.
With the tide coming in, raising the water level 6 inches per hour, how long until the water reaches the fourth rung?

A bum spends his days collecting cigarette butts. He spends his evenings unwrapping the cigs, taking the remaining tobacco, and rolling new cigarettes.
It takes seven butts worth to make a new cig. Today he collected 49 butts.
How man cigarettes can he make?

There are seven apples, two pears, and an orange. If I take away two apples and a pear, how many pieces of fruit do I have?

If a horse of a given strength is tied to one end of a rope and the other end is attached to a wall.. and the horse nearly breaks the rope when pulling with all his might. Will the rope break when another horse of equal strength is attached to the rope instead of the wall and they both pull with all their might?

I remember that an unmovable object.. provides a force only equal but opposite to the force put on it.

so.. what ever the horse did to the wall.. the wall acted like it was another horse of equal strength.

so.. answer would be NO.
