 [:-'(] [:-'(] [:-'(]*Sniff sniff* [:-'(] [:-'(] [:-'(]

so silly of omid, omid ACTUALLY've posted this riddle but still gave you the wrong answer

 [:-'(] [:-'(] [:-'(]*sniff sniff* [:-'(] [:-'(] [:-'(]

Ahhh. Don't worry, you're still the Queen of Puzzles. And I don't know the answer to your last puzzle. Could it be something to do with smell and light? So for instance he bought perfume and a light bulb?

Omid guess you being too kind to omid [:I] and omid also sense that you know the answer cz you've almost answered it. [^]

It was a candle and match box.

What can be seen, but cannot be touched, and when put in a barrel, will make the barrel lighter? ;)

That's a whole different question.
Anyway I think you can fill the room with light using just a match (a risky business if the room is thatched with straw.)

Thank you for the right answer :)

Sergi and Sally where sitting in their family room one night. While Sergi was watching T.V his wife Sally was reading. All of a sudden the power went out and Sergi decided to go to bed, but Sally kept on reading. With no use of artificial light, Sally kept on reading. How? ;)

A doctor and a bus driver are both in love with the same woman, an attractive girl named Sarah. The bus driver had to go on a long bustrip that would last a week. Before he left, he gave Sarah seven apples. Why? ;)

Ahh. Not if you're my Grandad, it doesn't.

He choked on an apple and died.

That's a true story. He was in hospital at the time and was suffering from mental illness. He tried to stuff all his food in his mouth at the same time and choked.    [xx(]

His father also suffered from mental illness and so did his son, my father, all around their mid-life period. Worryingly, I'm now 46. You will let me know if I ever say anything strange, won't you.

Two girls have were born the same day, at just about the same time, in the same hospital, the same year, and they have the same parents. How is it possible that they aren't twins? ;)

There was once a man who had a very selfish and unkind son. So one day the father sent his son to the market with one coin and said, "I am sick and tired of your selfish ways. Take this coin and buy with it: something to feed the cows, something to plant in the garden, something for us to eat, and something for us to drink. Dont come back until you do this!" He is only allowed to buy one item. What did he buy that fulfilled his father's wish? ;)

Well done Omid, Queen of Puzzles. This one seems to have got us all stumped. I'm trying to think of a single food that can fulfil all those functions. Any chance of a clue?  [:o)]

What about a gourd or melon of some sort.  You can squeeze for juice to drink, eat the flesh, plant the seed and animals will eat the hard rind that we cannot

A woman who lived in germany during world war two wanted to cross the german/swiss border in order to escape nazi persuers. The bridge which she is to cross is a half mile across, over a large canyon. Every three minutes a guard comes out of his bunker and checks if anyone is on the bridge. If a person is caught trying to escape german side to the swiss side they are shot. If caught crossing the other direction without papers they are sent back. She knows that it takes at least five minutes to cross the bridge, in which time the guard will see her crossing and shoot her. How does she get across? ;) ;) ;)

She starts walking across the bridge immediately after the guard goes back in his bunker. She walks towards Switzerland for 2.5 minutes, then turns around and starts walking back to Germany. The guard then sends her to Switzerland because she has no papers.

Next.

A woman was sitting on a windowsill on the 35th floor of a building. She was about to commit suicide. The police surrounded the bottom of the building telling her NOT to jump. Her husband was in the room with her and kept trying to stop her. She got nervous and fell, yet she did not get or hurt or even a scratch. Why? ;)
