    Sheep across, come back with an empty boat.
    Take the cabbage across, bring the sheep back.
    Take wolf across, come back with empty boat.
    Take sheep across, and do whatever you needed to do with a wolf, sheep, and a cabbage on that particular side of the river.

    Now figure mine out.

    The light as a feather one is: Your breathe. Ive seen it in a joke book :p

    "Everything I tell you is a lie" is a trick question.
    If it is the truth, then it becomes a lie.
    If it is a lie, then it becomes the truth.
    There is no coreect answer to that question.

    Heres mine:

    What does a beggar have, and rich man needs, and a dead man eat?

    AW = And why?
    I think...

    I remember reading this one somewhere:

    Every last one of a certain mammal was killed off, a few months later, however, their species once again walked the land. How is that possible?

    Edit: Does that really qualify as a brain teaser? Oh well.

    Honestly, I'm a hack at all forms of practical logic and riddles, but I still have two haphazard guesses/hack theories for that'n.

    It was the time of birth for all of the females of the race, and the fetuses were fully grown into near-complete beings, so by the time the species was wiped out, the babies were on the verge of being born, and they fought their way out of the womb and somehow survived infancy and part of adolescence on their own until they became a thriving breed once more.

    That was utterly nonsensical and I was laughing at myself a bit even while I was typing it, but I tried my hand, at least.

    Oh, and the other is that a form of more primordial lifeforms evolved from their previous state to the exact genetic makeup of the then-extinct species over a few months. Not much better, but I had fun thinking them up.

    rofl. RIVER!

    Here's a good one. (gotta love thinking of stuff while playing a good RTS) ((thats a hint))

    What English word retains the same pronunciation, even after you take away four of its five letters?

    Queue isn't it?
    Civilization 4 comes in handy once again.

    And as for my previous question, No, when I say dead I mean dead.

    Here's one:
    Take this, and that will be left. Take that, and this will be left.

    What is the whole?

    Here is an easy one........

    Pronounced as one letter,
    And written with three,
    Two letters there are,
    And two only in me.
    I'm double, I'm single,
    I'm black, blue, and gray,
    I'm read from both ends,
    And the same either way.
    What am I?
