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?

No, that would be too obvious.

A man starts a coconut business. He buys coconuts for $5 each and sells them for $3 each. His business is very popular and, in a short time, he becomes a millionaire. How is this possible?


He buys coconuts from his business?

Since he's losing money, he must have had more than a million dollars before starting the business. Then when he lost money he became a millionare.

I don't see what the problem is? you just cut it into 7 pieces. I don't get it...


What is the least amount of cuts you can make while satisfying the condition of paying him each day? It's not six or seven.

Gold bricks one: he cuts it four times. Diagonally twice (makes two, then makes four), then vertically (six), then horizontally (eight). Regarless of the shape (as long as it is all straight lines), if he cuts it evenly then he will get 8 pieces, like a pizza. He will just have eight very sharp triangles.


Good idea, but you can do it with less cuts, and it does not have to do with the angle you cut it at.

[quote]As for the brothers one, I still can't figure out what it means. "Two brothers watch each others eyes, never get together." That's not even a sentance. Do you mean they never touch each other?

something like that
