The Riddle Thread!

A Forum Thread for GameBanana

Answer Correctly... And Live... Wrongly... And Die...

Yes, the riddle thread!
This thread will move along much like the movie picture game, except with riddles instead of movie pictures! And the answer probably isn't a movie. Get it right and confirmed, its your turn with a riddle. Keep in mind this is not really a "joke" thread, mostly riddles/brain teasers. Ultimate Rule: IT MUST HAVE AN ANSWER, not one of those "to keep you thinking till eternity's end" things. NEW ADDITIONAL RULE: Remember, some riddles are really common, so just because it was posted like 20 pages ago or 8 months ago, doesn't mean it doesn't work. If you know the answer, or you really want to take the time to flip through all those pages, be my guest. Just play fair. First riddle:
An old rich geezer has a massive fortune. He tells his two sons that if either one of them wants to win the fortune, they must race their camels across the finish line. The last one to cross wins. Obviously, both wanted the fortune, so they wandered around aimlessly, neither brother willing to cross the finish line first. Eventually they seek the wisdom of another old poor geezer, who tells them some advice. Upon hearing this advice, they jump onto the camels and race to the finish line. What advice did this old poor geezer tell them? Also, notpron and hackthissite do not count in this thread. ADD THIS THREAD TO YOUR FAVORITES! Also here's a tip: If you don't want people Googling the answer to your riddle, or at least reducing the chances, you can alter words in your riddle to make it different. Just remember to re-read the riddle and make sure you didn't change it completely. IF YOU THINK A CERTAIN RIDDLE IS REALLY CLEVER FEEL FREE TO STAMP IT.

    Good one, i have one if madogg wont post EDIT: i guess i'll post one because its bothering me... If he posts one i'll delete this post. ---------------------------------------------------------- Youre lost and traveling down a road in the middle of basically no-where. You have no maps, signs, compasses or any items to help you find your way. Youre trying to get to a town called truthville; where everyone there always tells the truth. You come to a fork in the road and a man is standing middle of the fork. You know one way leads to truthville and one leads to liarville, where everyone lies, but youre not sure. So you decide to ask the man how to get to truthville. You dont know whether he is from Truthville or Liarville. What is the one question that you can ask this man no matter where he is from, to make him tell you where Truthville is.

    Posted by rynx Ask him where he lives, if he lives in liarsville he'll say truthville and if hes telling the truth he'll say truthsville
    very nice, basically Correct, but the actual answer was: Point to where you live. If you just ask him he'll say truthville, but you still wont know which way is which.

    Well then, i'll just tell you. it doesn't make much sense, i read it online. it's because it's not possible to take a picture with a wooden leg, you have to take a picture with a camera. and windows, hermmmm... mabye a girl that is trying to lose weight, and she just went through a big fight, and she called her fat, so she's upset, and doesn't want to hear her name.

    A cop was walking down the street when all of a sudden, he hears from a near building, "JOHN! Don't shoot!" *bam* He quickly runs into the building and up the stairs where he sees a doctor, lawyer and dentist. A dead body on the ground next to the gun. He immediatly arrested the lawyer, why?
