Post Re: Riddles!
I got one. You may need to draw this down:

There is 4 perfect circle flowerbeds meeting each other at the edge as to make a con-caved box. The Radius of the circle is 20m. Work out the area of the con-caved square and one of the circles without using pi or 3.1 or 3.

Yes both are correct

a hint for #2 is that it's more of a joke than a riddle

#5 is silence.

Here's mine:
Somebody claims he can build a hidroelectric station that works with 100% efficiency. If we assume this is possible, is it good or not? Why?

I'll attempt to answer all of these.
1. breath. fairly self explanatory
2. the last three should have ducked under the bar after the first one walked into it.
3. what time is it? again, obvious.
4. the moon. because it can be dark(new moon) or bright(whole moon) and is surrounded by stars.
5. silence. when you say it, the silence is broken.
6. (yes it is) humans. crawling in the morning(infancy) two legs in the afternoon(adulthood) and with a cane in the evening(old age)
7. I actually have no Idea.

...sais pas, although my best guess is a computer, by the twisted logic that computer operates only two types of input, 0s and 1s.

Here's something not too difficult-
A hiker follows the same route up a mountain every morning. One day, he sees a cabin that was not there the day before. He does not enter it or look inside, but he knows upon sight of it that everyone inside is dead. Why is that?

is the cabin burnt down?

Is it because It is upside down down the mountain, as If by tornado or something?

The amount of damage to the cabin is irrelevant, his conclusion would stand either way.

oooohhh, it's an airplane cabin. at any point where a plane is on a mountain, the occupants are probably dead.

ok heres a riddle I remember from a year ago : You're in a mansion and the power's out. You see a green door and a red door. Pick one. Now you see a purple door and a orange door. Pick one. Now you see a door with a golden handle and a door with a silver handle. Pick one. You finally come to some signs on three doors. One says "Death from drowning," another says "Death from machine guns," and the last one says "Death from electric chair." Then you see a big sign off to the side that says "Or stay in the mansion and starve to death." What do you choose and still live?

electric chair. the power's out, so unless I'll be bludgeoned to death by the chair, I won't die.

I'm smart.

here are a few more.

a doctor moves out west and writes to the brother which stayed behind in the east, but the man in the east has no brother. how can this be?

a plane crashes on the border of the USA and Canada. where do you bury the survivors?

a rooster lays an egg on a roof. which way does it roll?

two American coins add up to make 30 cents and one of them is not a nickle. what are they?

Don't bury survivors
Roosters don't lay eggs
The other is a nickel and the first is a quarter

You're on the right track but none of these is the correct answer.
