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?

Wait. The pieces don't HAVE to be the same. Can you could take away gold then give him more?

If so, I have the solution: Cut it three times...into 1/7, 2/7 and 4/7.
Day 1: give him the 1/7. 1/7
Day 2: take back the 1/7 and give him the 2/7. 2/7
Day 3: give him the 1/7 again. 3/7
Day 4: take back both of them and give him the 4/7. 4/7
Day 5: give him the 1/7. 5/7
Day 6: take back the 1/7 and give him the 2/7. 6/7
Day 7: give him the 1/7 again. 7/7


Yes, that is exactly it. Nice job.

Here's an excellent one that will make you think hard, much like the 53 eagles.

Matt takes Amy to a wonderful, classy resteraunt. He has eaten here several times and loves the food. They each have a good time, until, halfway through the meal, Amy throws up. She gets very ill and has to leave the room. Several other people in the resteraunt get sick as well. Nothing was wrong with the food, nor with Amy or anyone else. In fact, she thought it was delicious. She hadn't had an allergic reaction and had no illness before coming here. On top of that, Matt wasn't particularly surprised. Why not?

How about...

One is up. The other, down.
They oppose each other yet help achieve the same goal.
One below the sky, the other above the world.
These twins resemble each other, but they have different uses.
what are these two brothers?


That is the way I would have done the Ceiling/floor one.

They're eating in the Middle Ages, where eating, then making yourself throw up, then eating again was considered the norm for the noble class.

Well, they were eating something Fancy (like snails or Eels) And she throw up. The others saw her, and throw up too.

...what? No...they are both normal humans.

Those were Roman feasts. This event happened in 2012, although the actual year isn't important. Let's say after 2000.

No, it was just a nice resteraunt that serves Red Lobster-style dishes. Nothing upper-upper class.

Are they in some sort of sick place, like a hospital? But amy had no prior illness... Was the food the cause of the illness?
