riDDLes

Hi all, here are a few riddles to get your heads around if your bored. (:

Please note that i did take these off the internet, so try your best to solve them without using Google!!!

1.
Two girls ate dinner together. They both ordered ice tea. One girl drank hers very fast and finished five of them in the time it took the other to drink one. The girl who drank one died while the other survived. All of the drinks were poisoned.

Why did the girl that drank more ice tea survive?


2.
A man is in court for killing his wife. In the closing statements the man's lawyer surprises everyone when he announces "His wife was just missing. Everyone look at those doors. His wife is going to walk in those doors in about 30 seconds."The entire court is silent and the jury stares at the door as the lawyer and the defendant stare at them. After a couple of minutes the lawyer says "See! If you were so sure he killed his wife, you wouldn't be watching that door!"

The jury goes into deliberation and comes back almost immediately with a guilty verdict.

Why did the jury convict him?


3.
Paul is 20 years old in 1980, but only 15 years old in 1985.

How is this possible?


Ill post the answers when i put up new riddles, ill probably put up some every week! Ill probably stop if the thread doesn't get much enthusiasm.

Re: riDDLes

Figured out the first 2 for sure.

not so sure about the third, beyond some really sort of silly frame of reference stuff.

Re: riDDLes

First, I want to say that I hate riddles that aren't based in logic. If the answer has some very obscure connection, I don't really enjoy riddles.
But thanks for presenting an issue to be solved. I guess we're not posting the answers, so I'll just think about them.

2. "Jokes are not to occur in such situations"
3. Time Machine? Plastic Surgury? Mental age decreased?

Re: riDDLes

Next set of 3:

1.
This is an unusual paragraph. I'm curious as to just how quickly you can find out what is so unusual about it. It looks so ordinary and plain that you would think nothing was wrong with it. In fact, nothing is wrong with it! It is highly unusual though. Study it and think about it, but you still may not find anything odd. But if you work at it a bit, you might find out. Try to do so without any coaching!


2.
One evening a man started to run. Then he turned left. Soon after, he turned left again. Then he started running home. When he got home there were 2 masked men waiting for him. Who were they?


3.
Two mothers and two daughters went to the mall. They had $27 and split it evenly without using coins. How is this possible?

Re: riDDLes

got one and 2 correct. I am disappoint by 3... the name paul is named after a guy who got his name after the calendar switched to Anno Domini .

4 is clearly "the guy who wrote these sentence structures would totally fail that part of the SAT."

I have heard 5 before, but cant seem to remember the answer.

got 6 for sures. (BITCOIN!)
