Riddle:
A young man walks through the forest. He came to a bridge. In front of the bridge is a large man carrying an axe.
The man says, "If you want to cross this bridge, you must tell me a statement. If I think the statement is true, you will be strangled to death. If I say the statement is false, your head will be chopped off."
A few minutes later, the young man walked over the bridge, while the larger man stood pondering.

What was the statement the young man had given?

Answer:
The man said, "My head will be chopped off."
If the man said the statement was false, the young man's head would be chopped off, making the statement true. If the man said the statement was true, the young man would be strangled to death, thus making it false.

You have 3 pairs of balls, one pair is red, one blue, and one white. One from each pair is heavy, the other light. You get to use a scale 2 times, but you cannot feel with your hands to find the heavier one. How can you find which is which??

Answer:
For the first weigh in, put one white and one red on one side, and a white and a blue one on the other. The second weigh in depends on the result of the first.

If the scale is balanced, then there must be one heavy and one light ball on each side. If you take off the blue and red ball, you find out which was the heavy and light white balls, and know the corresponding blue and red that went on each side, and then you have all the weights.

If the scale does not balance, then the white ball on the side that went down is the heavy one, and the other white one the light one. Again, remove both white balls, and find all the rest of the corresponding balls.

The result of the second weighing, plus the knowledge of the first, allows all hte balls to be identified.

Riddle:

Your Grand-mother absolutely hates clocks and wont allow them in her house. She decides to bake cookies and only has 2 sand-glasses; One for 11 Minutes the other for 7 Minutes. You must have some of her delicious cookies and need to make sure they are baked for exactly the 15 Minutes they need to make them nice and chewy, how can you assure this will happen?

Solution:
1) Tip over and start both the 11 minute and the 7 minute sand glasses and let them run.

2) When the 7 minute glass runs out start baking the cookies because you know you will now have 4 minutes left in the 11 minute glass.

3) When the 4 minutes run out, flip over the 11 minute glass again and wait for it to finish.

4) The baking is now done because 4 + 11 = 15 minutes. Congratulations! you may now have some of your grandmothers delicious cookies.

Not a riddle, but a good joke:

Three Microsoft engineers and three Apple employees are traveling by train to a computer conference. At the station, the three Microsoft engineers each buy tickets and watch as the three Apple employees buy only a single ticket.
"How are three people going to travel on only one ticket?" asks a Microsoft engineer.
"Watch and you'll see," answers the Apple employee. They all board the train. The Microsoft engineers take their respective seats, but all three Apple employees cram into a restroom and close the door behind them.
Shortly after the train has departed, the conductor comes around collecting tickets. He knocks on the restroom door and says, "Ticket, please." The door opens just a crack and a single arm emerges with a ticket in hand. The conductor takes the ticket and moves on. The Microsoft engineers saw this and agreed it was quite a clever idea.
So after the conference, the Microsoft engineers decide to do the same on the return trip and save some money. When they get to the station, they buy a single ticket for the return trip. To their astonishment, the Apple employees don't buy any ticket, at all.
"How are you going to travel without a ticket?" asks one perplexed Microsoft engineer.
"Watch and you'll see," answers an Apple employee. When they board the train the three Microsoft engineers cram into a restroom and the three Apple employees cram into another one nearby. The train departs. Shortly afterward, one of the Apple employees leaves his restroom and walks over to the restroom where the Microsoft engineers are hiding. He knocks on the door and says, "Ticket, please..."

Q: How many Mathematicians does it take to change a lightbulb?

In earlier work, Someone [1] has shown that one mathematician can change a light bulb.

If k mathematicians can change a light bulb, and if one more simply watches them do it, then k+1 mathematicians will have changed the light bulb.

Therefore, by induction, for all n in the positive integers, n mathematicians can change a light bulb.

Riddle

You are in a room. In this room there are no windows, only one door and three switches. On the other side of the door is a room that has one incandescent light bulb. Your objective is to decide which switch turns on the light. Unfortunately the door may only be opened once and may not remain open. You are unable to have the door open while having also access to the switches. Which switch is it?

Answer
First turn on the first switch for 1 hour, this expiring of time will cause the bulb to heat up. At the conclusion of one hour, turn off the first switch and turn on the second. At this point open the door and walk in the room. Touch the bulb and if it is hot, but not on, then surely it was the first switch, but if the bulb is not hot but on, then it was the second switch. If neither of the two causes relates to the bulb then you can conclude that the third switch, which was never flipped turns on the bulb.

you are in a house. there are two rooms in the house. in one room, a lightbulb is turned off. in the other room, there are 3 switches, all in the off position as well. you are in the switch room.
your objective is to find out which switch turns on the lightbulb, but only going into the lightbulb room once.
once you enter the lightbulb room, you cannot go back into the switch room.
how do you do this?

simple.
You turn on one of the switches and leave it on for an hour or two. after turning it off, you turn a second one on for a shorter amount of time. after turning the second switch off, you turn the last switch on and enter the room, and feel the lightbulb.
if the lightbulb is cooling down, and lukewarm, it was the first switch.
if it's still pretty hot, it was the second switch.
if it's on, it was the third.
