#30: What's brown and sounds like a bell? IDK

#31: What is yours but your friend uses more than you do? Your friendship?

#32: 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? Seriously? This is so simple.

#42: You are walking through a field, and you find something to eat. It doesn't have bones, and it doesn't have meat. You pick it up and put it into your pocket. You take it home and put it on a shelf, but 3 day's later it walks away. What is it?

#43: There are 20 people in an empty, square room. Each person has full sight of the entire room and everyone in it without turning his head or body, or moving in any way (other than the eyes). Where can you place an apple so that all but one person can see it?

#44: A man has to get a fox, a chicken, and a sack of corn across a river. He has a rowboat, and it can only carry him and one other thing. If the fox and the chicken are left together, the fox will eat the chicken. If the chicken and the corn is left together, the chicken will eat the corn. How does the man do it?

#45: I can be created by humans, But they cannot control me. I suck on wood, paper and flesh alike. I can be more of a hindrance than help at times. To my creators, I seem to be everywhere at once. What am I?

#46: I have many feathers to help me fly. I have a body and head, but I'm not alive. It is your strength which determines how far I go. You can hold me in your hand, but I'm never thrown. What am I?

I've decided to include some "mathy" riddles for this update. Try them out.

#47:When one does not know what it is, then it is something; but when one knows what it is, then it is nothing. What am I?

#48:At a recent bowling match, two games were played.

Kev beat Stuart in both games, also Richard beat John in both games. The winner in game 1 came second in game 2. Richard won game 2 and John beat Stuart in game 1. No player got the same placing twice.

Can you determine who finished where in each game?

#49: Unluckily, last week I lost my measuring tape. It was unlucky as I had to measure Daniel's toy box.

Luckily though I could remember that the top had an area of 720 square inches, the side was 800 square inches and the end was 360 square inches.

What were the true dimensions of the toy box?

#50:Can you circle exactly three numbers to make a total of 19?

821
682
148

#51: Last week I travelled from London to Leeds, which is a distance of 174 miles.

I started at 9.15am and completed the journey with an average speed of 40 miles per hour.

On the way back, in the evening, I travelled exactly the same route, starting at 5.15pm. The traffic was light and I completed the journey with an average speed of 60 miles per hour.

What was the overall average speed for round trip?

The answer is not 50 mph.

#52: An ant has six legs, a spider has eight legs and a mouse has four legs.

In my zoo, I recently counted 612 legs which came from an equal number of each of these animals.

Can you identify how many animals there are in my zoo?

#53: What is in seasons, seconds, centuries and minutes but not in decades, years or days?

#54: I have four legs but no tail. Usually I am heard only at night. What am I?
