GUEST,Nigel Parsons BS: Does anybody know good riddles? (87* d) RE: BS: Does anybody know good riddles? 06 Oct 02


My earlier ones (already partially answered)

You are in a remote cottage, with a wood fire built up, but not lit. You also have a kerosene lamp which needs lighting, and a gas burning stove. Unfortunately, you have only one match. Which do you light first ? The Match

You are stranded on a small desert island, and your only hope of rescue is to light an oil lamp. Unfortunately there is insufficient oil in the lamp to reach the lower end of the wick (which is short from overtrimming) how do you manage to light the lamp ? add water until the oil reaches the wick. the oil floats on the water

Four men in a lifeboat find that all they have left is a full packet of cigarettes, but no matches. How do they manage to get a smoke ? Open the cigarettes, throw one overboard. The boat is now a cigarette lighter! Use this
