Riddle 3: A man puts on a clean shirt every night before bed. On the first night, he puts on a blue shirt. He then sleeps for 5 hours. Every one hour more he sleeps than the night before he put on a different color shirt the next night according to this scale: blue, black, red, green, white, pink, orange, brown, purple, yellow, grey, neon green, tan, and teal. Every one hour less he sleeps than the last night he put on a different color shirt the next night going backward on his scale. If he were to wear a blue shirt because he slept more hours than the last night he does. If it was because he slept fewer hours than the night before he skips it and wears a teal shirt instead. If he goes back on the scale and goes to blue but would not wear a blue shirt he still counts blue in his going back on his scale. The second night the man wears a blue shirt because he did not sleep any more or fewer hours than the last night. The man sleeps for six hours that night. The next night he sleeps for five hours. Night number four he sleeps for eight hours. The next night he sleeps for seven hours. The next night he sleeps so well he sleeps for 11 hours. Night number seven he stays up so late he only sleeps for four hours. The next night he is so tired he sleeps for eight hours. The next night he sleeps for eight hours again. Night number ten he sleeps for 14 hours because he is sick. Since he slept so long the last night he only sleeps for seven hours. The next night he is a little bit tired so he sleeps for eight hours. The night after that he had to do so much work he only slept five hours. The next night at work they let him out early and he slept for nine hours. The next night he slept for eight hours. And the last night the man did he slept for ten hours. The next night he put on a different color shirt according to his scale, but the next night he randomly picked a shirt.

Riddle 4: A Japanese ship was sailing in the Pacific Ocean. The Japanese captain of the ship put his diamond chain and Rolex watch on a shelf went to get a shower and returned ten minutes later. Now listen carefully, as I will only tell it once: When he returned, both the chain and the watch were missing!! He called the crew of his ship together. There were four of them. A British guy was the cook of the ship. The captain asked him: “Where were you the last ten minutes?” And the cook answered, “I was in the cold storage room to select the meat for lunch”. A Sri Lankan was the housekeeping guy. The captain repeated his question to him and learned that the Sri Lankan was at the top of the ship correcting the flag which had been put upside down. An Indian guy was the engineer maintaining the ship. Same question and the Indian told that he was in the generator room checking the generator. A French guy also served on the housekeeping crew. Same question and the French told that he was sleeping after the night shift. Within ten seconds the smart captain caught the thief. Who was the thief? How did the captain find him?
Answer: The Japanese flag is just a red circle; it is the same upside down. Funny riddles in convos.
Riddle 5. Four men walk into the desert. Suddenly all four are simultaneously knocked out. They awake buried to their heads in the sand unable to look anywhere but straight ahead. They are positioned so that each man sees another’s head before him. However, between the first and second man, there is a separating wall. So the first man sees only desert. The second man sees only wall. The third man sees another’s head and a wall. The fourth man sees two heads and a wall. On top of each, mans head is a hat. The underside of each cap is black, but the outside of each cap is either blue or white. Before any of the men can speak, their captors tell them if they speak, they die. However, if any of them can guess the color of their cap on the first try they go free. The captors tell them that there are two blue caps and two white caps. Being an omniscient observer of the situation, we know that the order of the caps is: blue, white, blue, white. So knowing the perspective of each man in the sand, and that they can only see the color of caps/wall/desert in front of them, which of the four men knows for certain the color of his own cap. More importantly: why?
Answer: The third man. This is because he knows there are only two of each color cap. If the man behind him (the fourth man) saw two caps that were the same color in front of him, he would know that his own must be the opposite. However, because the caps alternate in color. The fourth man has only a 50% chance of getting his hat color correct, so therefore he stays quiet. The third man realizes that the fourth man is quiet because he must not see two caps of the same color in front of him, otherwise the fourth man would say the opposite of the caps in front of him. Therefore, the third man presumes his own cap must be the opposite of the man’s in front of him, and his presumption is correct. Under this same logic, after the third man speaks his color hat, the second man even though he sees only wall, would be the next to go free, because he knows his cap must be the opposite of whichever color the third man’s cap was.

Riddle 8. There is a kingdom and in the kingdom when you drink a poison the only way to cure yourself is to drink a stronger poison to neutralize it. The King wants to make the strongest poison possible in order to make sure he can neutralize any other poison he may be given. To do this he enlists the two best chemists of the land: Tom and Bob.
The king is going to have them both create a poison as strong as they can then have them drink the other person’s poison then their own. Whoever dies created the weaker poison. Tom knows that Bob is much better at making poisons and he is sure to make a stronger poison. Knowing this, Tom makes a plan that ensures he lives and Bob dies.
The day of the contest arrives and Bob realizes that Tom must have known he had no chance against his prowess as a poison maker. So Bob thinks quickly and creates a new plan that ensures that once again he will live and Tom will die. In the end, Bob lives, Tom dies, and the King doesn’t get what he wants. What happened?
Answer: After Tom realized he was going to lose he finds that the only way to live is to replace his poison with something that isn’t poison at all and drink a poison of his own before the contest. In this way he drinks his own weaker poison then neutralizes it with Bob’s stronger poison. Last he drinks the non-poison he submitted to the contest.
Once Bob realizes that this is the only way Tom can save himself he figures out that he can save himself by either drinking a weaker poison before the contest so his neutralizes it in the contest or submit a non-poison to the contest as well. If he drinks a weaker poison before the contest both Tom and Bob will live and the King will realize that they are disobeying his orders which probably won’t turn out well. But by submitting a non-poison to the contest as well Tom will end up drinking the weaker poison before the contest and the two non-poisons in the contest and he will still die, and the King will be none the wiser (although he will not get what he wants being that both of the poisons actually aren’t poisons at all).
Riddle 9: Two spies want to get in an enemy’s military base. In order to get in, they have to give the correct countersign to the guard at the gate after he gives them the sign. So, they wait hidden nearby the gate so that they will overhear the countersign from another soldier. One soldier comes and the guard gives the sign: “6”. The soldier answers “3”. The guard lets him pass. Another soldier comes. The guard says “12” and the soldier gives the answer “6”. The guard lets him pass. So, the first spy goes at the gate and the guard says “10”.The spy, sure that he knew the answer as he was, says “5”. Immediately, the guard shoots him dead. Then the other spy, who saw that the other spy was killed when he gave the countersign, had now understood what the right answer would be, whatever the guard’s sign was. So, he walks to the gate and the guard says “8”.The spy gives the correct answer and the guard lets him in. What was the answer that the spy gave?
Answer: Five. It’s the number of letters it takes to spell the word the guard says.
Riddle 10: There is a prison with 100 prisoners, each in separate cells with no form of contact. There is an area in the prison with a single light bulb in it. Each day, the warden picks one of the prisoners at random, even if they have been picked before, and takes them out to the lobby. The prisoner will have the choice to flip the switch if they want. The light bulb starts off.
When a prisoner is taken into the area with the light bulb, he can also say “Every prisoner has been brought to the light bulb.” If this is true all prisoners will go free. However, if a prisoner chooses to say this and it’s wrong, all the prisoners will be executed. So a prisoner should only say this if he knows it is true for sure.
Before the first day of this process begins, all the prisoners are allowed to get together to discuss a strategy to eventually save themselves.
What strategy could they use to ensure they will go free?
Answer: Only allow one prisoner to turn the light bulb off and all of the others turn it on if they have never turned it on before. If they have turned it on before they do nothing. The prisoner that can turn it off then knows they have all been there and saves them all when he has turned it off 99 times.
