    Remember this thread? I liked it. Post some riddles!!

    There is one I need help with, first, though. Please. This is it:

    You were told by headquarters to bring a tank of a certain substance for your trip to get through a cave. But it had to be given in code and the code was "5, 7, 14, 15, 24, 25". Unfortunately, your decoder broke so you have to solve it manually. What is the code?

    Well i have one:

    You die and end up in a white room. There are two doors on opposite sides of the room. One leads to hell the other leads to heaven, but you don't know which is which. Next to each door is a man one will always tell the truth the other will always tell a lie no matter what but you dont know which one is which. You have one question to ask to chose the right door to get to heaven. What would you ask?

    I guess I have too little information to solve this one; only under the assumption that the guy at the Hell's door will lie and is representative of that place can I solve this one. The question will be: Take me to your Master!

    New question:
    In a deserted field in the middle of nowhere, a man finds a row of clothes in a straight line. Following this line, he finds a dead man, completely naked holdin a piece of straw. Interestingly enough, there are no footprints or path leading to his body. What happened to this man?

    People there is a riddle thread in the hobbit area, it is not restricted to just JRRT riddles either. I will not close this because it is in spam, but know that you have been told.

    Wrong,cuz when you ask him that you might end up in hell, and there is enough information.And the guy at the hell door may lie but he also might tell the truth, but you don't know which is the door to hell or which is the guy that lies. Trust me there is enough ingformation.

    Then what room is she talking about? There is the white room which you are in and then there is heaven and then there is hell. If you want to find out what color it is on the other side b/c you think that, for instance hell will be red and heaven will be white, then suppose you ask the liar and he tells you the door he is in front of leads to a white room and then once you open it you are in hell b/c the liar lied, so no that is not the answer.

    yes, but then where would that get you? Nowhere. You only get one question and you still wouldn't know which door to chose from, all you would know is who the liar and the truth teller is.

    Ah, but the liar doesnt nec. stand in front of the hell door, nor does the truth teller stand in front of the heaven door anyway I'll just end these arguements with the proper answer.

    You ask "Which door would the other man say leads to heaven?"

    if you ask the liar then he will lie and point to the hell door, as the other man would point to heaven, if you asked the other guy, he would tell the truth which is that the liar would point to hell.

    Obviously the truth teller guards heavens door and the liar hell's. God wouldn't have a liar guard the gate of heaven, that is retarded. Face it dude, arwen whooped your riddle with a totally different answer!!

    Ahh my good man, you are correct, which ever door the person says is the door to heaven is not the correct door.

    That's a point for you.

    No, look it doesn't matter what god would have done either man could be standing at either door, and still if you found out who the liar or the truth teller was, then you would still not know which is the door to hell.
