Riddle Me This Again

Recommended Posts

of course!

You freeze the water from one of the jugs, and when you put both of them in the barrel, the ice floads on the (other) water and so you can keep them seperated.

Malakin's right...the answer is that you freeze both jugs of water and put one block next to the other in the barrel. I don't know how you'd get the water out of the jugs easily that way, but that was the answer to the riddle

Your turn, Malakin!

Alright, you asked for it.. ;)

Who Am I?

I am your constant companion.

I am your greatest helper or heaviest burden.

I will push you onward to success or drag you down

to failure. I am completely at your command.

Half of the things I do you might just as well

turn over to me and I will be able to do them quickly and correctly.

I am easily managed- you must merely

Be firm with me. Show me exactly how you

want something done and after a few

lessons I will do it automatically. I am the

servant of all great individuals and, alas, of

all failures, as well. Those who are great, I

have made great. Those who are failures,

I have made failures.

I am not a machine, though I work

with all the precision of a machine plus

the intelligence of a human. You may run me

for profit or run me for ruin- it makes

no difference to me.

Take me, train me, be firm with me,

and I will place the world at your feet.

Be easy with me and I will destroy you.

Who Am I?

The one who makes it sells it.

The one who buys it doesn't use it.

The one who's using it doesn't know he's using it.

What is it?

My first assumption... Heroin, but I guess I was wrong.

Larry is in police custody for a suspected robbery. There is some evidence that he stole a watch out of a locker where he worked.

"What happened at the factory, Larry?" Chief Brossard asked.

"I came to work at 5:00 AM as I always do. We worked until noon when we ate lunch, which lasted an hour. I-"

"What do you do at work?"

"I cut metal slabs."

"How long does that take?"

"About one minute per strip. They're for motor vehicles. Anyway, after lunch, I had exactly 179 strips to make. Three hours later, I came into the locker room to change and go home when I saw a locker broken into. Some people came in and accused me of stealing someone's watch. I didn't have time to steal it because when I got off at 3:59 other people would have seen me as an entire shift gets off, and a minute to get there and break into the locker isn't enough time."

With fingerprint evidence, Chief Brossard's suspicion was true that Larry stole the watch. How did he have time do it?
