So, there was a thread on here a while back dedicated to riddles. Thaboss hasn't seen any new thread recently, so he's decided to start his own. Feel free to post and respond to any riddles.

Here's a classic one.

Bob hates his job. One day, while Bob is working on the 34th floor of an office building, he decides he's fed up with it. He rips open a window, and jumps through it. Although Bob is on the 34th floor, and there was nothing to stop, slow down, or cushion his fall, when he landed, he was perfectly fine. How?

House of gold was close enough anyway.

But if you want to change your answer...

I just wanted you guys to say gold and it would have been right. If you have a riddle go ahead.

Also, for the sake of the thread edit the riddle a bit so no one can copy paste it. That's why mine was harder to work out...

You've wound up in a building and the power's out. I wonder how you ended up here? You see a viridian door and a cinnabar door. Pick one. If you go through the viridian door you see a violet door and a saffron door. If you go through the cinnabar door, you see a fuchsia door and a cerulean door. Pick one. If you went through the violet or cerulean door, you see a door with a brass handle and a door with a copper handle. If you go through the saffron door, you see a door with a copper handle and a door with a bronze handle. If you take the fuchsia door, you see a door with a brass handle and a door with a bronze handle. Going through the bronze handled door leads to another door saying "Death by drowning. The copper handled door leads to another door that says "Death by electric chair." The brass handled door leads to another that says "Death by shooting. In each final room there is a sign on the wall that says "Or stay in the building and starve to death." What do you choose and still live?

Heard this one before but it is still possibly my favorite riddle.

Electric chair because there is no power.

Very good. I changed it from the original by adding pokemon colors instead of normal ones. Then made that convoluted maze to the end, hoping to distract you :P

I would love to get involved in this. Hopefully there isn't any specific rules :P

A man was going to bleach his socks because they had gotten muddy the day before. As he was pouring the bleach into the washing machine, he spilled some on the floor. He got some cleaning fluid and mopped it up with a rag. Minutes later he was dead. What killed him?

Well, I dunno if this is what you were going for, but if the man tried to clean the bleach with ammonia, the toxic vapors formed would kill him pretty fast. Is that what you were going for?

Yeah, the solution would have killed him.

If you throw me from the window,
I will leave a grieving wife.
Bring me back, but in the door, and
You'll see someone giving life!

What am I?

This one isn't exactly easy, so I wonder how long it will take to solve, unless you've heard it already. xD

I really have no idea why, but a baby is what's coming to mind.

That is a toughie.

I thought that too the first time I heard it, but no. xD Read it carefully.

Aha! I've seen more like this before! I actually think I gave one of these earlier, but this one in my opinion was harder to see.

It's the letter n!

Um, well my first attempt didn't work, but after I tried something else, I got 814.

Oh do you want my reasoning even if it's not right?

I saw that the ones digit was going in a pattern of 6,4,6,8,6... so the next ones was to be a 4

Then, I noticed after the initial tens digit of 0, the tens were being multiplied by 3

1,3,9,27.. so 27 times 3 is 81, and 81 tens is 810, plus the 4 in the ones, making 814.

Nope that's not it. :P

It's a bit more simple than that.
