#12 plane crash riddle

Heh, cute. Grin


Well, I guess I'll be nice and give a hint in the ounce/pound caper.  Hint for #8: different systems of measurement.


Here's an old riddle I remember...

#13:  A man is dead, shot in the belly around a table with fifty-two Bicycles on it.  What happened?

That one took me forever to get when I first heard it.


Hint: 000000000000000000000000000000

Don't assume bicycles.....

Also, the number is significant......

Well, points for creativity, but the ounce & pound questions assume the usual gravity and non-atom masses. Smiley

For Terminator's riddles, I'm not sure, but I think I've heard a version of #9: The man was in some sort of failing aerial vehicle, and the passengers needed to reduce the weight of the aircraft (they got rid of their clothes first, but it wasn't enough).  They drew straws, and the unlucky fellow drew the short one and had to jump.  However, I think that Zeep-Eeep's answer is a better one... Tongue

Never heard of #10, but could it be: Romeo and Juliet were frozen in a glass container?  Glass can shatter when frozen, but the ice has since melted...


#9 that is the actual answer (in a hot-air balloon (can't think of any other device that would apply to this) if lose altitude first throw what you don't need overboard, then clothes,. finally draw straws) 9 and 10 are intended to start out vague requiring you to ask yes and no question in order to get more of an idea and I simply gave all the clues

#10 is a question you have to think around, you have the right idea, but the absense of blood will lead to the truth.

Ans # 12 you don't bury SURVIVORS, this one was really old.

Ounces...
Fluid Ounces, Troy Ounces, etc. require their full names, thus "ounce" means a measure of weight=1/16 of a pound.  And saying that gold is always measured in troy ounces, thus "ounce of gold" assumes "troy ounce" while "ounce of feathers" assumes "1/16 Lb. feathers" is nonsensical.

For the bicycle riddle, shouldn't it be 53 bicycles? Since for
him to be cheating, he should have more cards than there are
in a deck?
