    • The Missing Pound

      how about this one:

      Three people check into a hotel. They pay ?30 to the manager and go to their room. The manager suddenly remembers that the room rate is ?25 and gives ?5 to the bellboy to return to the people. On the way to the room the bellboy reasons that ?5 would be difficult to share among three people so he pockets ?2 and gives ?1 to each person. Now each person paid ?10 and got back ?1. So they paid ?9 each, totalling ?27. The bellboy has ?2, totalling ?29. Where is the missing ?1?

        Ask who lies and what way's the village. Obviously the one telling lies will say I tell the truth and vice versa thus, the one who lies is the one telling the truth

        Poison isn't nice, find 3 other poisons that contain a word in this sentence and are also poisons
        You were only allowed to ask 1 question Freakshow, bit the right answer is already given.

        About the poison riddle, do you means it have to make three poisons from the sence: Poison isn't nice.
        I am thinking of it and tell you tommorrow what I have made of it, if there isn't anyone that already gave the right answer.

        • @Sammy: I guess we should first try to solve the riddle of Freakshow (with the poisons).

            • I thought you just could answer the question with the poison (I have no idea on that) and add yours, lol.

              No problem. I just want that none of the riddles gets "forgotten on the last page".

                I have heard this one already. And I remember this was a sneeky one. I will refresh my memory, but don't give the answer, because it's spoiling the riddle for other people, which have never heard the riddle before.

                  Freakshow:
                  Poison isn't nice, find 3 other poisons that contain a word in this sentence and are also poisons

                              • Well, but he said "find other 3" after the first one, so I thought we can't count that only the following 2.
