Stop me if you've heard this one, but it's an old favorite...

A certain man lives on the 30th floor of a building. Every morning, he takes the elevator from the 30th floor to the ground floor and goes to work. Every evening on his return, he takes the elevator to the 14th floor and walks up the remaining flights of stairs. On evenings when it rains, he takes the elevator from the ground floor to the 26th floor and walks the rest of the way.

Can you explain why he does this?

that is an oldie but a goody.
he is a Midget or Little person (to be PC)
he can only reach the button for the 14th floor
but on the days when it rains he has his umbrella with him and uses that to reach the 26th floor button.

nicely done gameoni :) your go.

thank you sir,

A horse walks a certain distance each day. two of its legs travel 30 miles each day and the other two legs travel 31 miles. It would seem that two of the horse's legs must be one mile ahead of the other two legs, but of course this can't be true. Since the horse is a normal horse.

so how is this situation possible?

The horse is walking in a circle (like for children rides at a fairground.)The two legs in the inside of the circle walk a shorter distance, and the ones on the outside of the circle will cover more distance, giving them an "extra" mile to walk.

Good job, your go darkapothem

Here are four examples that demonstrate a certain rule:

4 is always 4

3 is 5
5 is 4
4 is always 4

20 is 6
6 is 3
3 is 5
5 is 4
4 is always 4

31 is 9
9 is 4
4 is always 4

To solve this riddle, explain the rule and give another correct example

EDIT: just fixed a mistake in the third example-- my bad :/

The rule is simple

the right number is the number of letters used to spell the number on the left. then you count the number of letters in the right number and use those in the next set as the number on the right while the previous right number is now on the left. you keep doing this until you hit 4. because 4 is always 4.

EXAMPLE

1 is 3

3 is 5

5 is 4

4 is always 4
