This is just for fun but I'd like to have people asking weird thinking questions to answer.....

RULZ....

1. You can only give one guess at a time in each post...i mean youll have to wait to another guess before you can make another.....
2. All puzzles must be in italics....to know which are puzzles and which arent....
3. If it is answered by some time try giving out clues...
4. If people just give up give the answer and post another one....
5. Have fun puzzling and been puzzled
6. Love marshmellows always..... :shock: just joking...


here's mine....

You're in this room. You cannot leave it and all there is a door, but it cannot be open without a key...which you don't have. All there is in the room is a saw, a baseball bat, a desk and a piano. Nothing in the room can be destroyed except for the objects mentioned before. Give three possible ways you could escape

Everyone can post their puzzles...

Here's my riddle:

There are two dead bodies lieing on the floor in a room. There is no sign of forced entry. The window isn't broken. There's also glass and water all over the floor. What happened?

2 goldfish in a fishbowl fell onto the floor.

I have a good one.

This quiz is most unusual. As is the paragraph. What's so unusual about it? If you look hard, you should find what it is without too much difficulty. Try hard to spot it. How long did you think about it?

(What you need to do is find out what's weird with the paragraph, and no, it's not a typo.)

1. Is the glass on the floor two cups, and is the water poisoned

2. The murderer somebody they knew that they could have let in, or possibly had a key to there house, and they were drinking water and the two original two people were killed by the third person

3. Or the first person was killed by the second person, then the second person could have commited suicide

thats all that I con think of for now

Edit: sorry Sneaky_Sneasel, I must have taken to long, but that is a good answer, I never thought of an animal

First of all, your answer to the broken glass riddle is correct, Sneaky_Sneasel, although the riddle wasn't written correctly to begin with. This is the real riddle:

Romeo & Juliet lie dead on the floor in a puddle of water. There are no physical signs on them which could point to the reason of their death. Around them are shards of broken glass. The door to the room was locked, but the window was open.

The answer is that a cat climbed in through the window and knocked the fishbowl over. The goldfish were named Romeo and Juliet, and they had no physical signs of death on them because they suffocated to death, and not murdered.

And regarding your riddle, Sneaky_Sneasel: There are no 'E's in that paragraph. Quite odd :)

Nido is correct, there is no "E" in the paragraph, which is strange since "E" is the most commonly used letter in the alphabet.

I would go gather the items and sit at the desk. Pick up the saw and baseball bat, and shape the bat into a key with the saw, then just simply unlock the door and leave.

And with your feet, you'd play soothing music on the piano to help you concentrate :)

Actually, there's an "E". You have the word "the" in it.
