1. At least one of these ten statements is false.

If the other nine are true (simply being the count up to ten) then the only false statement is
Someone
10. At least ten of these ten statements are false.

Nope. It does have an answer. Skoolmunkee probably already figured it out and just isn't saying

I admit that I didn't figure it out, but I have heard it before, so I know the answer. I hate to ruin someone's fun, though, so I'll leave that one be. Personally I've never been good at riddles; solving them, or even remembering them to ask other people later.

No, I can't guess, but let's see if you can answer this riddle:

A farmer owns a field of corn.

The field contains five rows of corn with each row containing four corn stalks.

However, there are only ten stalks of corn in this field.

How is this possible?

Billy vs. Tree – The epic struggle of boy versus tree.
Sonic Colores – It looks like it's going to be a good game because I love how the way it makes me grow.

Because you're now talking about a field that doesn't belong to the farmer. You're talking about THIS field.


The answer to my riddle is YOU. If you read it, it says “I” for everything except one thing, in which it still makes it YOU. “I” make polar bears white…get it? “I” is yourself.

Are you sure? There are a lot of riddles like that, and I'm pretty sure the answer isn't always “me” or “you” or whatever.

I thought the answer was “No.”

That would be wrong then. ;)
Of course you can guess… But can you guess right?

Actually you can make many answers fit. It's too a bit lose to preclude the concinnity of answer that the shorter riddles tend to require.

I looked it up on the internet and read out that the answer is supposed to be no, and that the point was people asked the question to a bunch of Harvard students and none of them could get the answer, but Kindergarten kids could.
That could be wrong as well, though.

If that was the point though, you see how badly it was made? Because the one thing you can do is guess it. Guessing right is never mentioned.

Here's a stupid one…

“Please allow me to introduce myself
I'm a man of wealth and taste
I've been around for a long, long year
Stole many a man's soul and faith
And I was round when Jesus Christ
Had his moment of doubt and pain
Made damn sure that Pilate
Washed his hands and sealed his fate
Pleased to meet you
Hope you guess my name”

lol!

Personally, I've never really liked these “fake” riddles, where really it's just a lot of pointless information that doesn't actually relate to the question.It sort of reminds me of those jokes where someone just goes on a rambling story for 8 or 9 minutes, and the punchline is really lackluster and the actual “joke” is the fact that they tricked you into sitting there and listening to them for so long.

Asking a riddle on an internet forum is really pointless in my opinion. Anyone who doesn't have the patience to figure it out can just google or yahoo it. And if that person then posts the answer then the riddle is solved and anyone else who goes and reads through this will be spoiled the opportunity to solve it themselves. I know couple of really good ones that can take a person for ever to figure out but I savor them for personal conversations when the individual doesn't have the luxury of a wikipedia at hand.
Those were my two cents.
If you have any other questions, please deposit a quarter.

Oh, like the ping pong ball joke…it's only funny for the person telling it.

On the topic of riddles, has anyone played Mindtrap? My fifth grade teacher used to get us to answer those questions all the time. I was the Mindtrap champ.

No, there is no wordplay involved with this riddle.

Are you meant to criss-cross the rows of corn, like this?



By the way, the black lines are the rows of corn and the blue dots are the stalks of corn.

you know why birds don't write their memoirs? because birds don't lead epic lives, that's why. who'd want to read what a bird does? nobody. that's who.
