Nope, if it was an avalanche and she died, most probably he would have died too .

Here is another hint : They were together.

Was her death a direct result of what he said?

Subtract Half of 1/2.. Lol That's what I meant. You get zero.

That would get you .125..the half is not .5 (or 1/2)..but half of the number

The answer is 8. Cut it vertically and you get 2 zeros

Next one (easy) :

The ages of a father and a son add up to 55. The Father's age is the son's age reversed. How old are they?

The train just passed, without hitting anyone or anything, but she died because of it. Why?

Vague. Is the "she" a human?

He spoke and she died. Why?

Way too vague. Are the "he" and "she" actual, physical humans?

Correct Matt

Two soldiers have been ordered to do the following
1. Peel Potatoes
2. Do the Dishes
3. Mow the Lawn
Each of those chores, when done by one person, takes an hour. If they start at 8 A.M., what could they do to take as little time as possible if they have only one knife, one lawn mower, and one sink with room for one person?

For the sake of the riddle one will be called Leo and the other Mini Leo.

Leo's schedule:

1. Peel potatoes (Half an hour)
2. Do the Dishes (Half an hour)
3. Mow the lawn (Half an hour)

Mini Leo's schedule:

1. Mow the lawn (Half an hour)
2. Peel potatoes (Half an hour)
3. Do the dishes (Half an hour)

1 and a half hours of work. :)

But that seems a bit too obvious...

No..tis be correct. Mine aren't that hard..just stuff to get the brain juices flowing and this thread some good activity =p

One mother gave 25 books to her daughter, and another mother gave her daughter 8 books. However, between both daughters they only increased their collection by 25 books. How can this be?
