I've been into riddles lately. And seeing as I know a good amount now, I've decided to hold a competition to see who's the best at solving riddles!

Rules
1. There will be twenty questions. As the game progresses, the riddles will increase in difficulty. After a couple wrong guesses, there will be a hint. If the riddle is still not solved, the point is given to me.

2. You may guess ONCE before a hint, and ONCE after the hint. If you guess more than this, your answer will be disqualified, and - if the correct answer is guessed - the point will be given to me.

3. You may NOT edit your post. This is a sign of cheating, and if you do so, your answer is disqualified. Giving hints to the riddle is also forbidden. The point will be given to me if you do so.

4. If you've already heard the riddle, it's okay to post the answer. Don't google the answer, as that takes away the fun of it.

5. If you break these rules, you'll first lose points, and then you're disqualified. :(

Prizes
1st Place - 100 Psybucks
2nd Place - 50 Psybucks
3rd Place - 10 Psybucks
4th Place - 1 Psybuck

Mods/Admins are welcome to participate, but they cannot receive psybucks.

Okay, onto the first riddle.

Quote:
A boy was at a carnival and went to a booth where a man said to the boy, "If I write your exact weight on this piece of paper then you have to give me $50, but if I cannot, I will pay you $50." The boy looked around and saw no scale so he agrees, thinking no matter what the carny writes he'll just say he weighs more or less. In the end the boy ended up paying the man $50. How did the man win the bet? Answered by RegalChillin

    What do you mean? If you mean they're all random categories, then yes.

    Hint: Everyone has one, but only at a certain place or time.

    Three more guesses before the point goes to me.

    Quote:
    A man and a woman were driving in their car when it broke down. The man decided to go for help at a gas station a few miles back. He made sure nobody was in the car, rolled all the windows up, and locked all of the sedan's doors. He went off, but when he came back, his wife was dead, and there was a stranger in the car. No physical damage was done to the car, so how did the stranger get in? Answered by RegalChillin

    The stranger was a baby, the wife died in childbirth while the husband was away at the gas station.
