good luck!!!

oh and classic one

Riddle me this: You are walking down a road and you encounter a fork in the road and you do not know the correct way to go. There are two men standing at the junction and both know the correct road. One man always lies, and the other man always tells the truth, but you do not know who is the liar and who is the one who tells the truth. You can only ask each man one question, but it must be the same question for both. What is the question that would allow you to get the information necessary to choose the correct path?

no... They would both say yes! The man telling the truth who does know the path would point to the right one, the man telling a lie would point to the other path... but you still don't know which ones which

Ahh I thought the liar always lied!

So it has to be one question that also reveals the correct direction... hmmm...

The liar does always lie which means both of them would point to different paths when asked which one is the correct path

"If you were the truth teller which way would you tell me to go?"

This would cause the liar to have to give a double negative kind of thing so they would say the same path? Is that right? Lol this is hard, it hurts my brain!

Essentially right... "which way would your companion tell me to go?" The liar would lie tell you that the truthful man would say to go down the wrong path. The truthful man would tell the truth and say that the liar would tell you to go down the wrong path. They both point to the wrong path, so then the alternate is the proper path.

In daytime I lie pooled about,
At night I cloak like mist.
I creep inside shut boxes and
Inside your tightened fist.
You see me bes when you can't see,
For I do not exist.
What am I?

only one i could think of after 4 hours in a car. try this one:

Question

A man was found murdered on Sunday morning. His wife immediately called the police. The police questioned the wife and staff and got these alibis:
The Wife said she was sleeping.
The Cook was cooking breakfast.
The Gardener was picking vegetables.
The Maid was getting the mail.
The Butler was cleaning the closet.

The police instantly arrested the murderer. Who did it and how did they know?

and, for those who like a traditional riddle:

I never was, am always to be,
No one ever saw me, nor ever will
And yet I am the confidence of all
To live and breathe on this terrestrial ball

Quicksilver - is your first one the maid? Because there wouldn't be mail on a Sunday morning?

Not sure about your second one, I shall have a think.

Here's one of my favourite riddles/logic puzzles:

You are in the attic of a building. On the wall are three numbered light switches.
Down in the basement are three numbered light bulbs, each is connected to one switch. You don't know which switch is connected to which light. You do know that they are all off to start with.

You can do what you like with the switches, but once you leave the attic, the attic door will lock and you can't get back in.
The only place you can go to is the basement (three floors down).

Your task is to go down to the basement and determine which bulb is connected to which switch.

yep, it was tomorrow, and it was the Maid. well done. However - vincent, that is a hard one. I'm with shadowbeam, prop the door open and follow the wires.

Tell you what though, you want someone who's really bad at riddles? asked someone the concrete room one last night, and instead of an answer, she asked me 'how did you get in there in the first place?' and 'if there's no windows, how would you breathe?'
