Riddles

2 I face my brother, he faces me. At our sides two more I see. Together we make room for thee. What am I?
3 Made of ten but two are we. Five apart and we are weak. Five together hovoc wreak. What am I?
4 Despised am I by knave and liar. After me the wise inquire. I rise above all death and fire. What am I?

95% of people ages 10 - 15 would have a heart attack if the Jonas Brothers were on a 100 ft. building about to jump. Copy and paste this to your signature if you're one of the 5% of people who would bring popcorn and invite friends.

I believe the answer is "he was born on February 29th."

Nope, 1972 is the room number his mother was in when he was born.

Peppy: FOX! It's a wall of text! Do a barrel roll!

Fox: AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!

What is the only thing you can put into a barrel to make it lighter...

While exploring the wild highlands of Scotland, a man was captured by hostile wood fairies.

The powerful chief of the fairies told him he could make one final statement which would determine how he would die.

If the statement he made was false, he would be boiled in water.

If the statement were true, he would be fried in oil.

The man found neither of this options too his liking, so he made a statement that got him out of this seemingly impossible situation.

What is the one statement he could make to save himself?

anyone got it?

Gooms:  It may not be the right answer, but 'I do not know how i will die' should work.

I could go for it.  I've heard very similar riddles (the one with the person who only lies and the other who only tells truth - comes up EVERYWHERE) where the answer is totally logical, but you just can't guess it.  I should be able to work it out, but i can't.

I'll give it a last try though.  The statement 'I will die by boiling in water' should do.  Because if it was true, he would have to die by boiling.  but he only dies by boiling if it's false.  But since it's false, he has to die by boiling.  but that makes it true, so he has to die by oil.  but that makes it false.  Ad infinitum...

Patience, breeder.  The second is 'a wall'.  The fifth is possibly 'water'.  4 might be 'the truth'.  The third might be hands - five apart would be an open hand, five together a fist.  I take it these have all come out of that new popcap game...  Tut tut, we shouldn't be helping you cheat.

:P

And the big bold print isn't very nice.
I am a person with no patience, but as we live in different time zones I usually give people more than a day before yelling at them..
