Well I saw there was so many threads with one riddle per thread so I thought there should be a thread where people can gather and solve riddles or post new riddles...and if it gets popular enough we might have a game with members and those who gets 10 points win or something...since I guess I made this thread I'll start with 5 riddles of various difficulties...plz put the riddle number you are solving so it won't be confusing though ok? x_x

#1 Difficulty Easy
- A petshop owner had a parrot with a sign on its cage that said "Parrot repeats everything it hears". Davey bought the parrot and for two weeks he spoke to it and it didn't say a word. He returned the parrot but the shopkeeper said he never lied about the parrot. How can this be?

#2 Difficulty Hard
- You are in a room that is completly bricked in on all four sides, including the cieling and floor. You have nothing but a mirror and a wooden table in the room with you. How do you get out?

#3 Difficulty Easy
- What is it that when you take away the whole, you still have some left over?

#4 Difficulty Normal
- Debbie promised to take her daughter Becky shopping on the day before the fourth day after the day after tomorrow. If today is Sunday the 3rd. On what day and date will Becky take Debbie shopping?

#5 Difficulty Easy
- I have keys that open no locks,
I have space, but there is no room,
You can enter, but you can't go in.
What am I?

Oh just remember...just because I opened the thread doesn't mean no one can post riddles...feel free to post your riddles here too but those with answers plz make sure you address which riddle you're replying to XP...oh and I won't be around often for a few days (I know...bad time to start a thread)...so I apologise if I come back late with answers x_x

Yesterday is hisory, tomorrow is a mystery, but today is a gift...that's why it is called the present

where's number 6 and number 10 is wrong

#11 D: Normal
- A bus driver was heading down a street in Colorado. He went right past a stop sign without stopping, he turned left where there was a "no left turn" sign, and he went the wrong way on a one-way street. Then he went on the left side of the road past a cop car. Still - he didn't break any traffic laws. Why not?

#12 D: Normal
- A man kills his wife. Many people watch him doing so. yet he did no crime and he's still walking around now e.e...why?

Inside the red house there were lots of babies.

What is it?
Yet no one will ever be able to accuse him of murder. Why?

LOL I dunno the answer to any of yours, but I have one.

The person who builds it doesn't want it, the person who wants (or buys) it doesn't use it, and the person who uses it never sees it. What is it?

2- you put the table ablaze, and the bricks don't like heat i think, so it crumbles.... problem is where'd you get those matches?? and the mirror is no use in a dark room :hmpf:

10 - the lake was dry........ or well the thing is there's always air imprisoned in the boat, so they stay in that air, and don't get wet

angelkate : a coffin?? because well the guy don't want it (because it's for dead ppl), the one who buys it doesn't use it cause it's for a dead relative, and the one who uses it is dead XP

taffy : nice rhyme......... well i don't think glass is liquid in nature?? but a liquid that breaks?? maybe water when it's ice, and it cuts??

Thanks, not written by me and now that I look at it, it's kinda vague ^_^'
Actually, you had it the first time. It's glass, which is formed from a liquid =]

Yup, I agree. I like that coffin riddle =d

a new one? This one shouldn't be too hard =]
[a] Golden treasures I contain, guarded by hundreds and thousands. Stored in a labyrinth where no man walks, yet men come often to seize my gold. By smoke I am overcome and
robbed, then left to build my treasure anew. What am I?

And here's another one. I like this one ^^
(b) Two bodies have I, though both joined in one; the longer I stand the quicker I run.
What am I?

This one's...lol, here I'll just let you judge:
[c] The Pope has it but he does not use it.
Your father has it but your mother uses it.
Nuns do not need it.
Your lady friend's husband has it and she uses it. What is it?

hum the last one i won't answer, though i guess i know the answer *whispers in taffy's ear* XP

a) i don't get that one, it seems strange to me, but maybe it's love.... cause you can deceive someone (by smoke i am overcome) and many men want the treasure of love = the heart ??

b) no idea ^_^'

umm...Didn't quite catch that Anjhurin ^^; Whisper louder! haha

a) Good guess, but nope ^^ lol, maybe you've been thinking about Valentine's Day a lot? =]

b) It's a tough one. Keep trying :)

No. I've heard that one before. It's glass.
And for taffy's other riddles...
[a] A beehive
(b) An hourglass
[c] A last name.

Here is one from me:
He who has it doesn't tell it.
He who takes it doesn't know it.
He who knows it doesn't want it.
What is it?
