    Lol thanks :D

    A man and his son are in a car crash. The man doesn't survive but the child is rushed to hospital. When he gets there the surgeon looks at him and says,
    "I can't operate on this boy, he's my son."
    How can this be?

    beeaitch, I think I'm going to have to implement a rule that these riddles have to be from the 21st century, that one's as old as I am lol :)



    You tell'em pat!! (he doesn't know where I live does he?) :hide:




    Actually kaos, I've never heard that one before and it's not bad. It works as a correct answer. Well Done :ohyea: But patcooke had it first so pat, you're ah...turn.

    A man has a clock which stopped a few hours ago. There is no means of ascertaining the time in his own home, He has no idea what the time is. He goes out to walk to a friend's house a mile or two away. When he gets there he has some refreshments and a chat for some time. He does not have any timepiece on him or see any clock on the way there or back during his walk but, on his return home he sets his clock to the right time. How does he do it?

    :rofl: kaos

    :curious: Well if it was me I would ask my friend what the time was.
    If it's not that or the sun thing kaos said then I don't know.

    Nope to either - He can ask his friend the time but by the time he gets home it will be later won't it?

    Entertaining try but no - it's not a "trick" question - there is a purely logical solution . . .

    I guess so, but I would assume he would be smart enough to keep track of the time. Maybe not lol. Hmmmm..... You didn't specify but I suppose there was no clock or way of telling the time at his friend's house?

    That was a good one kaos. Along the same line of thinking, does he borrow his friend's clock and take it home with him to set the time?

    nope - logical deduction is all that is required.

    well based on "logic" an average man walks a mile in about 15-20 mins so if he leaves his mates at 5pm then he will arrive home about 5:20, or if its 2 miles then 5:40 - 5:45??
