Alright. I was hoping someone would guess it, but no one did. Matthias has an artificial pacemaker in his heart, which needs it's battery replaced every four years. DragoBoy was close, but I wanted you to focus on the actual problem, and the fact that he had to go back every four years.

Time for Round 8!

The next question!

"One day a group of archeologists were digging through some ice caves and came upon a human male frozen solid inside a block of ice. They chiseled around the ice floor and took the man back to the laboratory to thaw him out and to figure out where he came from and who it was. No DNA information was available in the computers and they became stumped over several weeks of your average high tech identification methods. One of the scientists was awoken by a phone call from a scientist who astonished him with this new information! "We know who it is," he exclaimed. "And you're not going to believe this. We need you to come down here right away." When he shows up in the lab the other scientist tells him this is Adam. "You can't possibly mean Adam!" he asks. "The Adam, from the Bible? How do you know?" After the scientist explains his reasoning, he finally believes him. How did he know?"

I've changed it to a real stumper. Eat your heart out DragoBoy!

The first correct answer will get you... 4 Points! :o GO GO GO! IT'S ANSWER TIME!

And the answer to this one is that the body was missing a rib bone (because Eve was made from one of his ribs)

Oh right I forgot about the second reason but it's that he has no bellybutton because he was created not born.

I hate you DragoBoy. Just take the points. I should stop getting my brainteasers from the Internet, where PEOPLE CAN COPY THE WORDS AND LOOK THEM UP ON GOOGLE... Ahem. I'll post the next question when I regain my nerves.

I don't google them I've just heard a lot of riddles, and I mean a lot. Though yeah you could google the answer if you wanted to.

I google them. And I still can't find some of them -_-

Also, I still think we should PM answers. You could post two or three at a time; we'd still get multiple tries then. And, anybody who got the answer right could get points. Mostly because I always get here too late to actually answer...

Lungs.
Brains.
Hearts.

Hmmm.... I'm sure that all of those work, but are probably not what you're looking for.

Soul?
Family?

I dunno.

One of the answers Rex chose is correct, but I'd like the person who correctly answers it to explain their choice, so I actually know that you tried. (No offense :lol: )

Also, that was pretty clever GofD, but unfortunately not the answer. :(

She sounds different because its been so long that her voice has changed.

A guy can try cant he?

Anyways, you said She hasnt SEEN her in may years. So Im guessing, that the roommate never actually talked to her, so therefore, the other roommate wouldnt know what she would sound like now would she?

She remembers the name of the roommate, and her phone has caller ID. It makes sense, but, knowing good ol' TT it's probably something STRANGE and IMPOSSIBLE TO GUESS.

:idea: Now why would she have never talked to her own roommate?

The roommate was deaf. Deaf people can still speak, however, although they usually sound quite different when they learn how to. Consequently, it was rather obvious who was on the other side.

I like Rex09's answer, but in an attempt to still get points, I'm going to guess that Theresa's roommate underwent a sex change operation, and as a result their voice changed significantly (not as a result of a specific surgery on her voice box).

Theresa was deaf (or had hearing disabilities) but no longer is and so has never heard her roomate's voice until now. She knows it is her roomate because of caller ID or she was expecting a call from her.

Since no one got it...
Theresa and her friend were roommates in a convent as nuns, and had taken a vow of silence.
