Here's another mystery:
The waiter touched a match to Dr. Haledjian's order of Cherries Jubilee. Instantly, a blue flame sprouted from the dish.

"Puts me in mind of poor Walt Dahlgren," said Haledjian soberly.

"The movie magnate who took his own life last week?" inquired Octavia, his fair dinner companion.

"The manner of Dahlgren's death is still unsettled," pointed out Haledjian. "I'll tell you the important facts and let you be the detective.

"Dahlgren was found behind the wheel of his sedan. The car was parked on the grass of the Grenwich Parkway just below the Stillford exit.

"Death was due to a thirty-two caliber bullet which had entered at the right temple. A single-shot, thirty-two pistol lay near the accelerator pedal.

"The sedan was spotless, inside and out. A careful search - by vacuum cleaners - of the the ground within twenty feet of the parked car disclosed only two apple cores, a stub of week-old theather ticket, and a rusted earring.

"Dahlgren's were the only fingerprints found on the pistol. An autopsy showed powder burns at the wound area and fresh cherries in his mouth and digestive system. He must have been eating the fruit up to the instant of his death.

"Now," concluded Haledjian. "Can you tell me why I think Dahlgren was not a suicide, but had been killed elsewhere and brought to the spot where he was found?'

What was missing in the car?

There are two answers I'll accept and I want to see if you guys can get them both. Smile

Mystery

well, if he shot himself with the gun while he was in the car, which would happen if it was a suicide, there should definitely be a bullet casing somewhere, but the car was clean.

The second thing is a bit fuzzy to me, but I would imagine that if he had fresh cherries in his mouth and stomach, then there should be cherry pits or stems somewhere around the car. Since there were no pits or stems found that would mean that he was probably placed in the car after he at the cherries somewhere else.

So the two answers I was looking for were blood and bullet casing. The point about the cherry pits/stems was a good one though. Very Happy

Damn, I guess blood seemed too obvious to me.

Here is one that I just got off the cereal box I am eating from at work.

Pronounced as one letter, and written with three, two letters there are, and only two in me. I'm double, I'm single, I'm black, blue, and gray, I'm read from both ends, and the same either way. What am i?

This is a tough one...

I'm confused though, is it a 3 or 2 letter word?

Seems like some kind of palindromic three-letter word with the same letter at each end, hence really only two letters. But other than that I don't know...

Riddle Answer

Post  Carlooney22 on Wed Jun 13, 2012 4:22 pm

Alright everyone, I can tell that it is probably time to post the answer to that riddle.
The answer is an eye. The word "eye" is written with three letters but only consists of the two letters "e" and "y" and is spoken as one letter "i". There are only two of them in each person, they can be black, blue, and gray and the word "eye" can be written backwards and the pronunciation will still remain the same.

How about this one:

Three lives have I.
Gentle enough to soothe the skin,
Light enough to caress the sky,
Hard enough to crack rocks.

I can see there being 2 answers to this riddle so either one (or both) will do.

riddle

Post  Carlooney22 on Sat Jul 14, 2012 12:50 pm

alright, this one stumped me good but lets see if anyone of you can get it.

Once there was a bus conductor, who was very rude to his passengers.

One day a beautiful young girl, of around 18 years,tried to board the bus, but he didn't stop the bus.

Unfortunately the beautiful young girl came under the bus and died on the spot. Angry passengers took the conductor to the police station, who in turn took him to the court.

The judge was not at all impressed with him and gave him capital punishment.

He was taken to the electrocution chamber. There was a single chair in the center of the room and a single banana peel at one corner of the room. The conductor was strapped to the chair and high voltage current was given to him. But to everyone's amazement, he survived. The judge decided to set him free, and he returned to his profession.

After a few months, this time, a good looking middle aged woman tried to board the bus but the conductor didn't stop the bus. Unfortunately, this time also, the good looking middle aged woman came under the bus and died on the spot.

Again angry passengers took him to the police station, who in turn took him to the court. The judge took one look at the conductor and gave him capital punishment. The Bus conductor was taken to the same electrocution chamber where there was a single chair in the center of the room and a single banana peel at one corner of the room. He was strapped to the chair and high voltage current was given to him. This time also, to everyone's amazement, he survived. The judge decided to set him free, and he returned to his profession.

A couple of months later, an elderly gentleman tried to board the bus.

This time the Bus conductor, remembering his earlier experiences, stopped the bus. Unfortunately the elderly gentleman slipped and died due to his
injuries. The conductor was taken to the police station and then to the court, to the same judge. Though he hadn't done anything wrong, but considering his past record the judge decided to set an example and gave him capital punishment.

The Bus conductor was again taken to the same electrocution chamber where there was a single chair in the center of the room and a single banana peel at one corner of the room. He was strapped to the chair and high voltage current was given to him.

This time he died instantly !!!!!!!!!!!

The question is why didn't he die on the first two occasions, but died instantly the third time??

Hint - Try not to think too literally about the scenario, the answer is kind of a play on words

So, I sat on it for a long time and I couldn't think of what the answer was. I showed my friend, Jonas, and he said "Why did they use the word conductor?" I said, "I don't know. Now that you mention it that's kinda weird." Then it hit me! It's a giant pun!

Before he was a bad conductor so he didn't get electrocuted, but the last time he was a good conductor.

Five hundred begins it, five hundred ends it,
Five in the middle is seen;
First of all figures, the first of all letters,
Take up their stations between.
Join all together, and then you will bring
Before you the name of an eminent king.
