Correct your turn

Alright, I've got one. (More of a pun, than a riddle)

What's brown and sticky?

It can be multiple things, but the version that I heard off has the answer be a stick.

A stick indeed. Your move, but when I type my next riddle my revenge will rival that of Montezuma.

Cannot be seen, cannot be felt, cannot be heard, cannot be smelt. It lies behind the stars and beneath the hills. Ends life and kills laughter. What is it? And for the love of god, please don't cheat with google.

Radiation?

I know I've read this in a book... Now I'm trying to remember what it is...

That is incorrect, Mr. The Bum.

Please, call me Bum

*looks up answear* oh lord *facepalm*

You are correct about it being from a book, but I won't tell...

I found the book after I remembered what book it was. The answer is, darkness. You just got Hobbited.

You CHEATED!!!1 but yes, it is darkness...Your Turn!

You said I couldn't google it. Books are fair game.

Three guests check into a hotel room. The clerk says the bill is $30, so each guest pays $10. Later the clerk realizes the bill should only be $25. To rectify this, he gives the bellhop $5 to return to the guests. On the way to the room, the bellhop realizes that he cannot divide the money equally. As the guests didn't know the total of the revised bill, the bellhop decides to just give each guest $1 and keep $2 for himself.

Now that each of the guests has been given $1 back, each has paid $9, bringing the total paid to $27. The bellhop has $2. If the guests originally handed over $30, what happened to the remaining $1?

You knew what I meant.... (jk, I don't care)

There was one dollar in taxes? But you said that they paid $10 but then only $9. Make up your mind!

Oh my. I rememer this one, in the 8th grade I talked to my math teacher for about a halfhour on the subject... Give me a sec I'll get it...

Broken Orange:

It just means they essentially payed 9 dollars each once they got their dollars back.

From 27 you actually take away the 2, leaving you with 25, the amount actually paid. The point is to not get to 30, but to get to 25

Well played KronosTalon. You won.

Thank god! 8th grade math finally paid off!
Someone else go haha.

What has wheels and flies? (I refuse to answer this, I hate you...)

Apollo's chariot!

Nope, not Apollo's chariot.

An airplane.

Come on, am I the only one that read The Dark Tower?

It appears as though that is the case.

But I'm going to be clever and say it's a manure wagon. It has wheels and flies *durr hurr*

Close enough, a manure wagon is basically a garbage truck.

Oh wow, didn't expect that. Give me a minute and I'll find one to post.

There are 10 people in a square room. Every person in the room can see the whole room and everyone in it. Where can you place a ball so that all but one person can see it?

Right behind one of their heads.

Close enough. I was looking for on top of their head. Your turn.

A man is locked in a room with four solid walls, a ceiling and a floor, it has no windows, and the door he came in through is locked and impossible for him to get through. Inside the room there are only two things, a mirror, and a round table. The next day he is visited and no one is in the room, how did he escape?

Hint: Door is not the answer.

Sounds an awful lot like Jim Henson's "The Cube". (Awesome short movie, too. Because that's your door!)

Is it because he looked in the mirror and imagined or saw himself being out of the room?

Close but no cigar there is more to it than that.

He saw himself in the mirror, used the 'saw' to cut the table in half, put the two halves together to make a whole and then jumped through the 'hole' which he put in the wall.

Eh, it sort of makes sense.

Again, no riddle to post, someone else put one up if I'm right.

He is correct.
