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?

He asked to inherit the company? That way he would get millions of money, he would pay for his mothers eyes and he would pay for his wife to get pregnant. Everyone would be happy.

Is that the answer?

Hint: There is a sequence of words that incorporate all of the wishes into one. So you can make one wish but it incorporates all of them into the sentence. Start with the eye one. What does she want to do? (Verb) How can you put that into the sentence easily?

I would give an example but that would be too obvious.

Hint: In what way can you give money with an object that is widely accepted as worth a lot?

You sell something? You use gold? I don't know, is a pawn shop involved?

Example:

I want my mom to walk (She is paralyzed) and my dad to have a street named after him. (Leo)

I wish for my mom to walk down Leo Street.

Now try it with this.

The Butler must wish to become a very good doctor!

There are doctors that help with eyesight, doctors that help with childbirth, and doctors that are very rich!

BOOM.

I know it's totally wrong, but I don't care!

Include that in there and you got it. Words like rich mean money, try objects.
