I love riddles, so I thought I'd start a thread just for your favorite riddles. You can post any riddle you want, just make sure that it's not too hard. You just have to solve the previous one to post your own.

Here's the first one:

65536, 256, 16, ? (This one's pretty simple, just to start things off )

Remember, you can post any kind of riddle!

Guys, remember to put all the solutions in spoiler tags, we don't want to ruin the fun of someone who wants to solve them themselves.

I have a two:

From what can you remove the whole, and still have some, and remove some, and still have the whole?

A man was frozen alive but was able to keep on fighting after being unfrozen. How can this be?

I'll give a hint later if you still don't know

A man goes to a store and asks, how much do 8 cost? 25 cent. And how much for 25? 50 cents the shop-owner. So how much for 138? that would be 0.75. What about 1250? That is 1 euro. What product are they talking about?

Good job on the wholesome one.

I have a joke-ish kind of one:

I do not observe Hanukkah. Even if I looked up the date it started on, I still would not be able to know when it started on. Why is this?

You won't get this one unless you know your quantum physics.

I get a negative number as solution, so the child must not be born yet? The father is hopefully with the mother!

----

Yeah, but the exact solution tells a lot more

----

The mother, the father, and their child.

Three backpackers arrive at an inn with only one vacant room. The room is $30 a night, but only has two single beds. They'll have to put an extra cot in, and it'll be cramped. The backpackers pay, anyway.

The manager, hearing of this situation, graciously gives them a $5 discount. He gives it to an intern to pass on to the backpackers. But who wants to split $5 three ways? The intern gives each of the backpackers $1 and keeps the $2 for now.

The backpackers paid $27, the intern has their $2. That makes $29 when the original price of the room was $30. Where did the $1 go?

Another variation, with the same answer:

Abe wants to buy a $7 shirt, but she's spent all her allowance already. Her two shopping buddies generously lend her $5 because the shirt looks cute on her. The cashier gives Abe $3. Abe gives $1 to each of her two friends and keeps $1 for herself because she doesn't have any smaller change.

"Wait," says one of her buddies, "You owe us both $8 in total, right? But we have $3 between us... that, plus $8 makes $11. Where did that extra dollar come from?"

Oooh that's an old one. About the hotel room.

This one is also easy. What always ends everything?

P.S: I've typed this for 3 times now, I guess because of the Internet Explorer. Now I'm smart enough to Copy and Paste if anything happens again.
