Riddle time!

There's one that I like because it's both really easy and really difficult at the same time. Apparently about half of the people who hear it figure it out instantly. The answer is just so obvious to them that it doesn't even seem like a riddle. But the other half might be stuck for a long time and still not get it.

If you are one of the people who get it, don't spoil it right away.

Raven's Nest:
A plane carrying two people crashes into a deserted public area. When the rescuers arrived, they discovered just over one hundred bodies. Why?

Crashed into a graveyard would be my guess......
and I really can't think of any new ones off hand.

Solo-Wing:
I am bored so I must make a random thread. This thread is about Riddles! Post the hardest riddles you can think of here and see if anybody can Solve them!

A man was found dead in his house with a gun in his hand. There was a tape recorder on his desk. When the Police arrived they pressed play on the tape recorder and heard "This is it. my life is over" then a gunshot. How did the Detective immediately know that it was a murder and not a suicide?

Toughy! I doubt you people will get it! Prove me wrong! :D

Someone must have rewinded the tape, since the police has not done that.

Raven's Nest:
A plane carrying two people crashes into a deserted public area. When the rescuers arrived, they discovered just over one hundred bodies. Why?

Crashed into a graveyard.

What has roots as nobody sees
Is taller than trees
Up, up it goes,
and yet never grows?

Easy! Mountain, I suppose.

Surpheal:
Thought this one up a while ago

What is my name?

I wear a ruby in my shoulder,

I wear a sapphire on my foot,

I wear a belt of diamonds.

What is my name?

And just for fun, another one

You are in a room that is indestructible, with the walls, floor and ceiling not being able to be damaged in any way shape or form. All that you have with you is a pretzel stick. How do you get out?

I'm not one for astronomy so I'm just going to guess Orion for the fact of the belt of diamonds and assume that the ruby and sapphire are very clever references for the stars that make his shoulder and foot.

For the second, I'm going to say that I go out the door/window I came in, since you never said the room didn't have any of those features, just that its walls are indestructible.

Almost winner.

Though, mountains do in fact grow.

'Voiceless it cries,
Wingless flutters,
Toothless bites,
Mouthless mutters.'

The_Blue_Rider:
If you hit me, I will crack, but you'll never stop me from staring back, what am I?

Yes to anyone who recognizes this, I did steal this

It's a mirror isn't it? I recognise it, but I can't remember from where. Is it one of the ones from the Hobbit?

EDIT: Wait I remember now, it's one of the Riddler's from Arkham City

Here's two I remember;

Four men were in a boat on the lake. The boat turns over, and all four men sink to the bottom of the lake, yet not a single man got wet. Why?

What word can be written forward, backward or upside down, and can still be read from left to right?

Half a moment!

Wind, wind of course.

I like this one, took me a few minutes before it dawned on me:

They were wearing protection

I

Why yes, I am terrible at riddles

It was a womans voice on the tape.

[quote="Able Seacat" post="18.381706.15040507"]Was it because the tape was already rewound which obviously the man couldn't have done after shooting himself?

EDIT: well I was well behind. Anywho, I have an eye but cannot see. I am stronger and faster then any man alive but have no limbs.

What am I?

Tornado? I haven't read later comments so I don't know if this has already been answered

Huh, well I guess they kind of work, but they weren't the answers I was thinking of =P

The same reason they all sank to the bottom, each had a ball and chain! HA, I kill myself. They're all married. Or maybe they all have girlfriends.

The second one, the word is..... "lol"? I know that's not the answer, but it works if you think about it. :D

I love this thread.

I like this one, took me a few minutes before it dawned on me:

Right you are. I was one of those who had to think about it for a long while before finally figuring it out.

Here's another, more "classic" riddle:

God has none,
a king has few,
but the common man has many.
What is it?

Allow me to present a riddle for your enjoyment!

Prithie...why is it difficult to trick an unemployed jester?

And we have a winner!

For the first one anyway. You're right that lol does sort of work, but it's not the answer I have in mind.

The Unworthy Gentleman:
And nevar put with the wrong end in front.

This one's easier when you have it written down but whatever, I'll give it a shot.

5 + 5 + 5 = 550

Add one line to the left hand side to make this true.

A hint to keep in mind, this one is a logic puzzle, not a math one, though it does require you know basic adding and subtracting.

I must say, this one has me stumped. I think it has something to do with the words God, king, and common man themselves, but I don't see how yet. Am I at least on the right track?

The_Blue_Rider:

Is the answer problems?

Not the answer I was looking for. I suppeose it would fit, although a king could have quite a few problems.

No, it's not a word puzzle.

Here's one more. It's a more of a simple maths puzzle rather than a riddle, though.

Alice and Bob are playing a guessing game.
Alice: "I have three kids. Multiplying their ages together equals 36 and the sum of their ages equals the number of my neighbours house. Can you guess their ages?"
Bob goes and checks the house number, then comes back.
Bob: "I'll need more info."
Alice: "Alright. My oldest child plays piano."
Bob: "Okay, I got it now..."

...How old are the kids?

What has 4 legs but cannot walk?

You are in a room that is indestructible, with the walls, floor and ceiling not being able to be damaged in any way shape or form. All that you have with you is a pretzel stick. How do you get out?

break the pretzel in half and stick the two halves together, 2 halves make a hole which you can climb through.
get outside and cough yourself horse, and ride away into freedom.

Kungfu_Teddybear:
What has 4 legs but cannot walk?

Old person / disabled person with 2 walking sticks?

EDIT: Person with a zimmerframe?

EDIT: A chair? XD

EDIT: Crap I suck a riddles.

EDIT: I'm quite surprised that wasn't your first guess >.>

Billy and Sue were both born on the same day and have the same parents but they are not twins. Why?

(Yeah i know this is a pretty common one but it's all i can think of right now.)

We are very little creatures; all of us have different features.
One of us in glass is set; one of us you'll find in jet.
Another you may see in tin, and a fourth is boxed within.
If the fifth you should pursue, it can never fly from you.
What are we?

I'm going to steal one from Morrowind. There were a few littered throughout the game:

My fellow Atronach, Zedias-soko, was slain. The Altmer claims the Dunmer is guilty. The Dunmer says the Khajiit did it. The Orc swears he didn't kill Zedias-soko. The Khajiit says the Dunmer is lying. If only one of these speaks the truth, who killed Zedias-soko?

EDIT: And don't look up the answer you cheaters!
