    There are two bowls that you and a challenger must eat from. After flipping a coin you were selected to pick the bowl that each would eat from. In the first bowl there are three out of five poisonous apples. In the second bowl, there are two out of five poisonous apples. Whoever eats from the first bowl must eat two apples at random from the bowl. Whoever eats from the second bowl must eat three random apples from the second bowl. Which bowl should you pick to eat?

    Form a "Triangle" With 10 blocks in its top row, 9 blocks in the next row, etc., until the bottom row has one block. Each row is centered below the row above it. Color the blocks in the top row red, white, or green (or any three colors of your choosing) in any way. Use these two rules to color the remaining rows of the triangle: - If two consecutive blocks in a row have the same color, the block between them in the row below has the same color - If two consecutive blocks in a row have different colors, the block between them in the row below has the third color Tell how you can always predict the color of the bottom block after seeing only the top row (and not constructing the intermediate rows) PROVE your answer.

    Crocodile Sophism - Back to the Paradoxes A slim crocodile living in Nile took a child. Mother begged to give him back. The crocodile could not only talk, he was also a great sophist, and so he stated: "If you guess (Edited: predict the fate = guess correctly), what I will do with him, I will return him. However, if you don't guess his fate I'll eat him." What statement shall the mother make to save her child (what about a vicious circle ...)?

    Revolt. The king is totally corrupt. The concept of justice is perverted. He doesn't deserve to be king. When everyone is lined up, everybody jump the guards and fight your way out. It is better too die on your feet than live on your knees.

    n factorial (represented as n!) is the product of all positive integers up to n. So the number you are looking for is 1,000,000! ("one million factorial")

    With a tip of the hat to @BMAD for his interesting puzzle. For your amusement, here's an interesting spin on this genre: One night you encounter a two-hour traffic delay due to an accident (the tow truck had difficulty clearing the road.) So, for a time interval 13 of two hours you were constrained to travel at 0 mph. You called home and said, sorry dear, but I'll be two hours late getting home. The next night, for some unimaginable reason, you were also constrained to travel part of the way at 0 mph, this time for a distance of one inch. What do you say now when you call home?

    A joke from the internet yesterday: Trump really delivered when he said he would run the government just like his businesses. It's already shutdown! Don't worry, he still has three years to bankrupt it.

    Hi guys, I love riddles so much that I wanted to insert it in game me and my friend are making. The game is 2D RPG roguelike survival game happening in a randomly generated universe. Here is the fun part, one of the random encounters will be the character in a game that will approach the player and ask him a riddle. If a player answers correctly he will be awarded else Riddler will attack the player. (About 10% of NPC encounters in the game will be by riddler). I think that's the cool way to promote riddles and make kids (and grownups) use the brain. Also please write me some riddles and I will insert it in game. Thank you, Josip
