## Puzzle/Riddle(2) Hub *Are you smart enough to solve these?*

Anything that isn't Minecraft-related or doesn't go anywhere above goes here.
(Go to the last pages for the most recent riddles.

Greeting's puzzle go-ers.

I have decided to make another puzzle hub. Do not be fooled, this is not the official Puzzle/Riddle Hub.

I'll probably make the official Puzzle/Riddle Hub a blog or something, but if someone has a recommendation on how I can approach this, feel free to PM me.

As the MasterRiddler, I challenge you to solve these riddles:

#1: A woman was horrified to find a fly in her tea. The waiter took her cup and went into the kitchen and returned with a fresh cup of tea. She shouted, "You brought me the same tea!" How did she know?

#2:A petshop owner had a parrot with a sign on its cage that said "Parrot repeats everything it hears." A young man bought the parrot and for two weeks he spoke to it and it didn't say a word. He returned the parrot but the shopkeeper said he never lied about the parrot. How can this be?

#3:Which word in the English language becomes shorter when it is lengthened?

#4:You give someone a dollar. You are this person's brother, but the person is not your brother. How can that be?

#5:A psychologist goes to a village in Africa and decides to compare foot size to intelligence. He notes that in general, as foot size increases, so does intelligence. How can this be?

#6:A murderer is condemned to death. He has to choose between three rooms. The first is full of raging fires, the second is full of assassins with loaded guns, and the third is full of lions that haven't eaten in 3 years. Which room is safest for him?

#7:He has married many women, but has never been married. Who is he?

#8:How many times can you subtract the number 5 from 25?

Type them here; I'm not impressed if you're lying or used the internet for the answers.

Here are some more:

#9: Alice is walking throught the forest of forgetfulness. She wants to know what day of the week it is. She stops and asks a lion and a unicorn. Now the lion lies all of the time on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. The unicorn always lies on Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Alice asks the lion what day it is, he says, "Well, yesterday was one of my lying days." Alice can't figure it out just from the lion's answer so she asks the unicorn and the unicorn says, "Yesterday was also one of my lying days." What day is it?

#10: Alice is walking throught the forest of forgetfulness. She wants to know what day of the week it is. She stops and asks a lion and a unicorn. Now the lion lies all of the time on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. The unicorn always lies on Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Alice asks the lion what day it is, he says, "Well, yesterday was one of my lying days." Alice can't figure it out just from the lion's answer so she asks the unicorn and the unicorn says, "Yesterday was also one of my lying days." What day is it?

#11:What has feet and legs, and nothing else?

#12: What is easy to get into, but hard to get out of?

Im honestly not sure if these answers are even close...
#1 The fly was still in her tea? Or it wasnt hot, unlike fresh tea?
#2 The parrot doesnt repeat what it hears back to you, maybe just to itself?
#3 "Shorter" derp
#4 Because you probably did something a bit wierd in a public place but you dont care, but he's all like "OMG your soo embarrasing! *Scoffs* I swear we arent related-... sorry, that me and my sister... In that case, no idea...
#5 Because you get wiser with age? Like comparing childs feet, and then measuring up to an adults.
#6 The lions, they'd be dead if they hadnt eaten in 3 years!
#7 The priest or chapel or whatever you call the guy who goes "You may now kiss the bride yada yada yada..."
*Refreshes page* Oh, there are more? I'll do 'em in a sec...
#8 f-five times?

Ohai dere, I see you've scrolled down to the bottom of my signature...

I'm going to be honest. Some of them are correct, some are close, and some are WAY off.

#1: A woman was horrified to find a fly in her tea. The waiter took her cup and went into the kitchen and returned with a fresh cup of tea. She shouted, "You brought me the same tea!" How did she know? I've heard this before, it's like the sugar was already in it.

#2:A petshop owner had a parrot with a sign on its cage that said "Parrot repeats everything it hears." A young man bought the parrot and for two weeks he spoke to it and it didn't say a word. He returned the parrot but the shopkeeper said he never lied about the parrot. How can this be? Deaf.

#3:Which word in the English language becomes shorter when it is lengthened? Short.

#4:You give someone a dollar. You are this person's brother, but the person is not your brother. How can that be? That person is a girl?

#5:A psychologist goes to a village in Africa and decides to compare foot size to intelligence. He notes that in general, as foot size increases, so does intelligence. How can this be? When you get older, you should get smarter.

#6:A murderer is condemned to death. He has to choose between three rooms. The first is full of raging fires, the second is full of assassins with loaded guns, and the third is full of lions that haven't eaten in 3 years. Which room is safest for him? The lions, the dead.

#7:He has married many women, but has never been married. Who is he? I honestly don't know.

#8:How many times can you subtract the number 5 from 25? Once, then it becomes 20.
