THE FIVE RIDDLES

  THIS IS ONE OF THE BEST FIVE RIDDLES I HAVE SEEN...
  THE ANSWERS ARE AT THE BOTTOM.
  RIDDLE #5 IS ESPECIALLY AMAZING.
  IT SHARPENS THOSE GENES IN YOUR BRAIN
  AND STALLS ALZHEIMER'S FOR YEARS Ö.
 
 
  1. A murderer is condemned to death. He has to choose between three
  rooms. The first is full of raging fires, the second is full of
  assassins with loaded guns, and the third is full of lions that haven't
  eaten in 3 years. Which room is safest for him?
 
 
  - / -
 
 
  2. A woman shoots her husband. Then she holds him under water for over
  5 minutes. Finally, she hangs him. But 5 minutes later they both go out
  together and enjoy a wonderful dinner together. How can this be?
 
 
  - / -
 
 
  3. What is black when you buy it, red when you use it, and gray when you
  throw it away ?
 
 
  - / -
 
 
  4. Can you name three consecutive days without using the words
  Wednesday, Friday, or Sunday?
 
 
  - / -
 
 
  5. This is an unusual paragraph. I'm curious as to just how quickly you
  can find out what is so unusual about it. It looks so ordinary and
  plain that you would think nothing was wrong with it. In fact, nothing
  is wrong with it! It is highly unusual though. Study it and think about
  it, but you still may not find anything odd. But if you work at it a bit,
  you might find out. Try to do so without any coaching!
 
 
 
  THE ANSWERS TO ALL FIVE THE RIDDLES ARE BELOW:
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
  Answers:
 
 
 
  1. The third room. Lions that haven't eaten in three years are dead.
  That one was easy, right?
 
 
 
  2. The woman was a photographer. She shot a picture of her husband,
  developed it, and hung it up to dry (shot; held under water; and hung).
 
 
  3. Charcoal, as it is used in barbecuing.
 
 
 
  4. Sure you can name three consecutive days, yesterday, today, and
  tomorrow!
 
 
 
  5. The letter "e" which is the most common letter used in the English
  language, does not appear even once in the paragraph.
 
  
  Iíll be getting Alzheimerís any time now.
  How did you do?
