FIVE RIDDLES

THIS IS ONE OF THE BEST FIVE RIDDLES I HAVE SEEN.......RIDDLE #5 IS AMAZING...ENJOY...THIS SHARPENS THOSE GENES IN YOUR BRAIN AND STALLS ALZHEIMERS FOR YEARS.

1. A murderer is condemned to death. He has to choose between three rooms. The first is full of raging fires. The second is full of assassins with loaded guns. The third is full of lions that haven't eaten in 3 years. Which room is safest for him?

2. A woman shoots her husband.. Then she holds him under water for over 5 minutes. Finally, she hangs him. But 5 minutes later they both go out together and enjoy a wonderful dinner together. How can this be?

3. What is black when you buy it, red when you use it, and gray when you throw it away?

4. Can you name three consecutive days without using the words Wednesday, Friday, or Sunday?

5. This is an unusual paragraph. I'm curious as to just how quickly you can find out what is so unusual about it. It looks so ordinary and plain that you would think nothing was wrong with it. In fact, nothing is wrong with it! It is highly unusual though. Study it and think about it, but you still may not find anything odd. But if you work at it a bit, you might find out. Try to do so without any coaching!

Answers to follow....as soon as I figure them out...

My guesses:

1. The room with the dead lions would be safest.

2. The wife took and developed her husband's picture.

3.

4. the 24th, 25th, and 26th- for example.

5.

Not sure on 3 or 5 yet...

Three stumped me until freakus helped and made it easy. Five I had no clue. The others were fairly simple but so am I.
