My whole is a sport.

Wotaaa! hai!
.... .. Panda
Right?

Kung Fu :(

You are walking through a field, and you find something to eat. It doesn't have bones, and it doesn't have meat. You pick it up and put it into your pocket. You take it home and put it on a shelf, but 3 day's later it walks away. What is it?  ;)

A mother has six children and five potatoes. How can she feed each an equal amount of potatoes? Do not use fractions. ;)

There are 20 people in an empty, square room. Each person has full sight of the entire room and everyone in it without turning his head or body, or moving in any way (other than the eyes). Where can you place an apple so that all but one person can see it? ;)

Give them none each.

And for the people in a room puzzle, I'm not sure, but if I'm right then this should make sense.

Ahh of course  :) I had the William Tell overture in my head but could not connect it to The Lone Ranger!  :)

I am not so sure it is intelligence, more lack of watching the Lone Ranger,  a tad before my time...  :D

Find an English word which is singular, add an "s" and it becomes plural, and add another "s" it becomes singular again? ;)

A man weighing 180 lbs. carrying 3 bowling balls weighing 10 lbs. each, approaches a large ravine. The only way to cross is a bridge with a weight limit of 200 lbs. The ravine is to far to throw or roll the balls across. How can the man cross the ravine in only one trip, with all 3 bowling balls? ;)

I do hope this isn't a juggling one - cos BC is right; it's impossible. 

And also because juggling three 10lb bowling balls whilst walking across a rickety bridge is next to infeasible. I have kilogramme juggling balls and after a few minutes my arms are tiring and you miss a catch; five times the weight and balls that don't even come close to fitting in one's hand - that's a circus act.

Remember to slightly change the question before posting, About 342 results are given..........

Sorry Omid, I lost my brain, but luckily the server farms at the chocolate factory were able to recreate it from a backup. At least they found one cell, so I probably still have a whole brain.

That won't work. The extra push you need to throw the ball into the air adds to your weight adn would break the bridge.
That's why it's not safe.
