Brainteaser Thread

Post by ElectroYoshi » July 16th, 2013, 8:00 pm

The spoiler below contains a short brainteaser. The first person to figure it out wins.

Aaaaaand, here it is:
[spoiler]A man answers his ringing phone after 4. He talks to his friend for half an hour, but when he hangs up, it's only 2.

How is this possible?[/spoiler]
I need a shot again, that sweet adrenaline.

Here is one I vaguely remember, lets hope I don't mess this up.

You are looking for the golden coins, you are presented with three cases. The coins shall be in one of them. Each have writings on them, two of which are lies and the other one is the truth. In order the text reads "The coins are not here." is written across the left case, "The coins are not here" is written on the middle case and finally "The coins are in the second case." is written across the final case. Which one has the coins. The answer comes fairly easily using logic, as is the case with most of these riddles.

Okay okay all you sissies have nothing on this
I got this riddle from Korkas just fyi
Okay.

A man walks into his house smelling of salt and alcohol. He walks upstairs, turns off the light, walks downstairs, turns on the light, brushes his teeth, washes his face, turns off the light, sets his alarm to 9 AM in the morning, and goes to sleep. The man wakes up at midnight, goes upstairs, turns on the light, goes to the window, and shoots himself. Why did he do this?

I think the second case. If the first two are lies, and the last one is telling the truth, it makes sense. :P

It has to be the 1st case. That's the only way two of them could be lying. If it was in the 2nd or 3rd case, two of them would be telling the truth.
