Can you think of an answer...fun brainteasers to stimulate the brain.

ex. A man was found dead in his study. He was slumped over his desk and a gun was in his hand. There was a cassette recorder on his desk. When the police entered the room and pressed the play button on the tape recorder they heard: "I can't go on. I have nothing to live for." Then there was the sound of a gunshot. How did the detective immediately know that the man had been murdered and it wasn't a suicide?

-now try and answer it...if your completely stumped then pm me and i will give you a hint.

Mr. Bahr, you seem to be quite into riddles ~ and i like to solve them. Wink

Here comes my guess:

The man could not have rewinded the tape when he was already dead. If it was suicide the policeman would have to rewind the tape before he presses the play button in order to hear the voice and the sound of the gunshot. Smile

EDIT: Eiko, could you please make spoilers work? Smile

A car traveled from Minneapolis at the speed of 40mph. Its fuel consumption was 30mpg. It had a full 5 gallon tank when it started, but it also had a hole in the tank. After 60 miles the car stopped with a completely empty tank. How many gallons per hour was it losing?

Can you find a 5 digit number with no zeros and where no digit is repeted, where:

the 1st digit is a prime number
the 2nd digit is the 5th digit minus the first digit
the 3rd digit is twice the first digit
the 4th digit is the 3rd digit plus 3
the 5th digit is the difference between the 1st digit and the 4th digit

Some basic math. Should be easy. Wink

Lets start here:
The car stopped after 60 miles -> We know it can drive 40 miles per hours-> That means 20 Miles in half an hour -> 40 miles + 20 miles = 60 miles -> 1 hour + half an hour = 1 1/2 hours.

Fuel consumption without the leak in the tank is 1 gallon for 30 miles -> The car went 60 miles -> That means without leak it should have used only 2 gallons for the 60 miles travelled

Finally we know the car had 5 gallons in the tank when it started -> 2 gallons usage should be normal, so we know that 3 gallons ran through the hole in the tank -> These three gallons were lost in 1 1/2 hours -> That means in one hour 2 gallons run though the hole.

Solution: Two gallons per hour. =) Should be right if im not totally wrong. Wink

PS: I will see if i can also find a nice riddle for you guys. ^_^

Wow, that one was quite nice. =) I already calculated the result but i wont post it as long as spoilers don't work. I guess you guys also want your fun, right? Wink

Here comes my short riddle for you:
- "There is a thing that is very fragile. So fragile that you even can break it by simply saying its name. What am i talking about?"
