Riddles
Click the image to open in full size.

The other day I read a riddle and immediately thought of it being something fun for the forums.

Maybe some of you would like to join me?

Quote:
In a one-story pink house, there was a pink person, a pink cat, a pink fish, a pink computer, a pink chair, a pink table, a pink telephone, a pink shower– everything was pink!
What color were the stairs?
Whoever gives the answer has to post a new riddle!

Ok. I'll bite. Ummm... where would these stairs be going? It's a 1 story house.

Many have heard me, but nobody has seen me, and I will not speak back until spoken to.
What am I?

Before you is twelve of the world's best pencils a claim which is most likely open to some some debate

Click the image to open in full size.

as im out of pencils i take one i really should have asked first i suppose that was impolite of me

you now see nine in front of you how is this possible?

EDIT:
removed the word "since" from the second sentence thoughts to paper got a little mixed up there really should proof read things!

Oh crap... While trying to figure this out, I should have written NINE before! Tried almost everything but that!

The word "NINE" exists of exactly 11 "lines".. so I assume the remaining pencils were displayed in a way that they formed the word "NINE"?

Phew.. that definitely took me some time to figure out... well done coming up with that one!

At a school 27 pupils wore red coats, 29 wore black coats and 40 wore blue coats. How many pupils were wearing green coats?

this one is tricky but if we use a substitution cipher the number of pupils of red, black, and blue just happen to be the sums of each colours name if we substitute each letter of the name for its place in the alphabet

r e d = 18 5 4 = 27
b l a c k = 2 12 13 11 = 29
b l u e = 2 12 21 5 = 40

g r e e n = 7 18 5 5 14 = 49

green should be 49 pupils
