Immediately after, one of them lifts the glass from mouth and gulps down the entire drink which feels pretty cold due to so many ice cubes. Immediately after drinking, the bars holding his hands are lifted and he is set free. Seeking that he might die with the poison soon, he tries to help the other person. After about half an hour when he is not able to set the other person free, he acknowledges that he managed to survive.

Difficulty Popularity

Hussey has been caught stealing goats, and is brought into court for justice.

The judge is his ex-wife Amy Hussey, who wants to show him some sympathy, but the law clearly calls for two shots to be taken at Hussey from close range.

To make things a little better for Hussey, Amy Hussey tells him she will place two bullets into a six-chambered revolver in successive order.

She will spin the chamber, close it, and take one shot.

If Hussey is still alive, she will then either take another shot, or spin the chamber again before shooting.

Hussey is a bit incredulous that his own ex-wife would carry out the punishment, and a bit sad that she was always such a rule follower.

He steels himself as Amy Hussey loads the chambers, spins the revolver, and pulls the trigger. Whew! It was blank. Then Amy Hussey asks, 'Do you want me to pull the trigger again, or should I spin the chamber a second time before pulling the trigger?'

What should Hussey choose?

Big Riddles #6 - Long Disgusting Riddle

Difficulty Popularity

There were once 3 brothers, one day on the way to their grandmothers funeral their car broke down.
Oh great, they all thought, and tried to fix the car but finally decided they had no idea what they were doing.
The middle and youngest brother teamed up and forced the eldest to walk in search of a house where they could use a telephone to call a local tow truck.
They were literally stranded out in the middle of nowhere-the landscape was barren and nondescript.
The eldest brother walked for ages until suddenly he appeared before a large Victorian home. Everything was pink.
Thinking that this was a little strange, the brother peered down the road for possible neighbors, but he could see nothing at all.
The picket fence lining the yard was pink, as was the gate. The path to the house was pink, the porch was pink. The door was pink. The shudders were pink. EVERYTHING was pink.
He opened up the fence gate which screeched 'Piiiinnnkkk!!' as he walked the path his footsteps barked 'Pi-Pink Pi-Pink P-Pink!!'. As he walked the porch steps they groaned 'PPPink PPPink PPPink!!'
Finally, with many 'Pink' statements he made it to the door and knocked loudly, the door shouted back 'PINK PINK'
He waited a minute or two but no one answered the door. He decided it was best to go inside anyway, they still needed to make a phone call. He grabbed the doorknob and turned it- it whispered softly 'ppinkkk'.
He shouted into the home 'Hello? Im just here to use your phone!'
When he looked around the home, once again everything was pink. Pink furniture, Pink carpeting, Pink drapes, Pink walls.
He figured the phone was in the kitchen so he walked in there, pink tile, pink cupboards, pink fridge, pink everything.
He heard his stomach growl and decided to steal some food, plus the phone call could wait. When he opened the pantry there sat Bread Brand and Rice Flakes. He chose the Rice Flakes and ate it happily.

Back at the stranded car, the two brothers became angry, they both decided to search for their brother and for a phone. They walked for what seemed hours and soon discovered the giant pink house and figured their brother had gone there, as there was no other neighbors.

The picket fence lining the yard was pink, as was the gate. The path to the house was pink, the porch was pink. The door was pink. The shudders were pink. EVERYTHING was pink.
They opened up the fence gate which screeched 'Piiiinnnkkk!!' as they walked the path their footsteps barked 'Pi-Pink Pi-Pink P-Pink!!'. As they walked the porch steps they groaned 'PPPink PPPink PPPink!!'
Finally, with many 'Pink' statements they made it to the door and knocked loudly, the door shouted back 'PINK PINK'
They waited a minute or two but no one answered the door. They decided it was best to go inside anyway, they still needed to make a phone call. One brother grabbed the doorknob and turned it- it whispered softly 'ppinkkk'.
The other brother shouted into the home 'Hello? We're just here to use your phone!'
When they looked around the home, once again everything was pink. Pink furniture, Pink carpeting, Pink drapes, Pink walls.
They figured the phone was in the kitchen so they walked in there, pink tile, pink cupboards, pink fridge, pink everything.
The brothers both heard their stomachs growl and decided to steal some food, plus the phone call could wait. When they opened the pantry there sat Bread Brand and Rice Flakes. Both of them chose the Bread Brand at ate it happily.
They waited some time for their brother to show up, but he was strangely missing. The two brothers decided he had gotten a ride, so they used the phone to call a tow truck which took the two of them to their grandmothers funeral.
Still they saw no sign of their brother, and never did again after that day.

Whats the moral of the story??

*HINT* the house wasn't their grandmothers, and the eldest brother wasn't brutally murdered or anything like that.

Big Riddles #7 - Toughest Long Logic Puzzle

Difficulty Popularity

The puzzle question is : On Bagshot Island, there is an airport. The airport is the home-base of an unlimited number of identical airplanes. Each airplane has a fuel capacity to allow it to fly exactly 1/2 way around the world, along a great circle. The planes have the ability to refuel in flight without loss of speed or spillage of fuel. Though the fuel is unlimited, the island is the only source of fuel.
What is the fewest number of aircraft necessary to get one plane all the way around the world assuming that all of the aircraft must return safely to the airport? How did you get to your answer?
Notes:
(a) Each airplane must depart and return to the same airport, and that is the only airport they can land and refuel on ground.
(b) Each airplane must have enough fuel to return to airport.
(c) The time and fuel consumption of refueling can be ignored. (so we can also assume that one airplane can refuel more than one airplanes in air at the same time.)
(d) The amount of fuel airplanes carrying can be zero as long as the other airplane is refueling these airplanes. What is the fewest number of airplanes and number of tanks of fuel needed to accomplish this work? (we only need airplane to go around the world)

Big Riddles #9 - Long Funny Brain Teaser

A child is called by the principal of the school along with his parents. The principal complains to his parents that he remains absent for most of the days from school. On being asked by the parents, the child forms an innocent face and blurts out the following:

There is not enough time to attend the school for me. Doctors say that a child must sleep for eight hours every day and so I sleep for 122 days a year (8 hours each day for 365 days). The weekends are officially off and thus in a year, the school remains shut for 104 days. The school gives us 60 days of summer holidays off every year. I chew my food adequately and thus it takes me an hour for each meal adding to 3 hours every day or 45 days in a year. For keeping me physically and mentally fit, I spend 2 hours daily in exercise and recreational activities which adds to 30 days a year. If you add all these days, you will get 361 days and thus I am left with just 4 days to attend the school.

The parents and principal are baffled by hearing it. Where do you think the child is miscalculating as this is certainly not feasible?

As the school year was progressing, a teacher was distressed that more and more of her students were beginning to tease and make fun of one another. She decided to do something about it. When they returned to the classroom after Spring Break, they saw a mirror on the wall with a sign next to it.
When one of the students came to her crying about the names she had been called at recess, she sent the girl to the mirror with these directions: Read that sign quietly to yourself. Repeat it over and over, gradually running the sounds together. Each time, look at yourself in the mirror. Soon you will be smiling.
Sure enough, when the student followed these directions, she came away smiling.
Each time a student would come to the teacher feeling low, she would give them the same directions. Sometimes they would have difficulty, so she would go over to read the sign with them. Eventually, each one would come away smiling.
This is what the sign said: I.Y.Q.Y.Q.R.

Why did this little exercise help her students feel better about themselves
