There is a riddle in the Labyrinth(with David Bowie in) where:

There are two doors, one door leads to certain doom and the other leads to the centre of the Labyrinth.

On the front of each door is a guardian, they know which door is which. You have to work out, by asking the guardians questions, which door to go through. However one of the guardians always tells the truth and the other always lies.

And I'm sure it's a regular motif to confuse the evil computer/robot with

'Everything I say is a lie'

Cue smoke and flashing lights.

most of them were classic simple riddles. ie. what has a head but never weeps, has a bed but never sleeps etc. (river)

what is dressed when night falls and undressed when day breaks?

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

what lies in bed, and stands in bed?/first white then red/ the plumper it gets/ the better the old woman likes it?

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

when is a door not a door?

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

there is a thing that nothing is, and yet it has a name. it's sometimes tall and sometimes short, joins our talks, joins our sport, and plays at every game.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

i dont know how many of those are well known, but the third book "the waste land" ends in a cliffhanger involving riddles, and i havent started the 4th book yet but its bound to have plenty to do with riddles. it is called "the wizard and the glass". both are books of stephen kings dark tower series.

Rayden, although I know some of the answers, I do not know all and I want the answers that are given.

Could you give the answers and are all of these riddles you give from the third tome? if so is the the title: Dark Towers - the waste land?

Thanks for helping out.

For those of you that have heard of it, there is a film called Nemisis Game (starring Adrian Paul - Highlander the TV series). It's about life's design, and how by solving riddles we can expand our minds and understand the design.

Some interesting riddles -

What eats to live but drinks to die?

What has rivers but no water, cities but no buildings and forests but no trees?

What does a spider weave that has no eyes but can see?

What demands an answer but never speaks?

I'll have to watch the film to see if there are any others that stand out, but that's all from memory!!

Oh, the Labyrinth riddle was as follows:

There are two doors guarded each by a guardian. One guardian always tells the truth (and one always lies). Neither can answer about the other one's door, and the girl must work out which door leads to the centre of the labyrinth and which one leads to buh-buh-buh-bum certain death!!

Anyhow, this is a simple logic question. The girl asks guardian 1 if guardian 2 would say that door 2 leads to certain death. The outcomes are as follows:

YES - G1 truth means G2 lies. G2 lies so door behind is safe
YES - G1 lies means G1 truth. G2 truth means door behind is safe
NO - G1 truth means G1 lies. G1 lies so door behind is death
NO - G1 lies means G2 truth. G1 truth so door behind is death

Riddle: During WWII, the British were using the Spitfire fighter plane as protection for their bombers. It was a great plane, but they were losing a lot of them to flak - ground fire. The plane could carry some more weight in armor. So, they called in an expert. He requested that photos be taken of the full bottoms of the Spitfires that made it back from their missions. He studied them and recommended additonal armor. Where did he recommend they put it?

Wherever there weren't holes in the returning planes? The logic being that the ones that got back could obviously fly with those holes in them.

hingehead,

You nailed it. But you'd be surprised how many people can't follow that or will challenge the answer. Try it and see.
Thanks for playing the game even though I would have liked more responces.
