Aha!

The answer to Omid's puzle is "just one word"
And EatsRainbow's is "fire".

WOW!!!

Omid, you are truly too clever for me!!

2610 = 289 = 328 = 357 = 426 = 1015 = 1224 = 2223 = 110102 = 111111111111111111111111111
Now I'm rather worried, how did you lot manage to become so smart!? I think i can hear my brain rattling around inside my skull  [:P] hehe



Four men are buried up to their necks, they can't move and they are not allowed to talk to each other. They all know that there is four of them, and that two of them have red hats and two have green hats. They have 10 minutes and within that time one of them must call out the color of his own hat, if that does not happen they will all be shot.

After one minute the correct answer is given, which one was it and why?

(the funny looking oblong thing between c and d is a brick wall, please use your imagination! lol)

@ EatsRainbows
The B guy goes "oi, I've got the green hat" because if he had a red hat the guy behind him would be like "ha, this is too easy, I've got the green hat" because he can see two red hats in front of him. But since he doesn't do this, the B guy must have a green hat.

(thought you'd catch me, eh?)

the rest of riddles that omid has are quite easy and can be found on internet too, so omid went back in the thread and found that one of omid's riddle remained unanswered. So you try that DiscoverDave. [:-X]

Once there was poor blind old man, God asked him to make one wish and I'll fulfill it for you. the man had three sons, one suggested that he should ask God for his eyes so that he could see the world, the 2nd one suggested that we are poor so he should ask God for wealth, the 3rd one suggested that you don't have any grandchild so he should ask for a grandchild.
Now the question is that how can he ask for all the 3 wishes in one sentence (without a punctuation and conjunction in it) so that God'll fulfill it for him? [;)] [;)] [;)]

C4ME's answer for this riddle was "I want 3 wishes"
Which was wrong [:-'(]
Now C'mon, this really is gona prove the BEST WORST job for you [:-X]
ahhahahhahahahahah
Got you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! [:D] [;D] [:D]

Omid'd be REALLY VERY impressed if you got this???????
