Can someone help me out on this riddle please?

1) If there are 25 sheep, and 1 dies; dyes, how many are left? (I don't know what dye it it is)

2) One night, a man receives a call from the Police. The Police tell the man that his wife was murdered, and that he should reach the crime scene as soon as possible. The man drops the phone, shocked, and drives 20 minutes to the crime scene. As soon as he reaches the crime scene, the police arrest him, and he is convicted of m****r. How did the police know that he committed the crime?

1) 24, dye is an item used to change the color of something (e.g. hair).

2) The crime scene information was not disclosed to the man. - In other words, how did the man know if the police did not tell him the location?

25 are left...he still has the dead one.....

But the riddle is supposed to be.......If a farmer had 20 sick sheep and one dies, how many are left?? Answer 25......The joke is that "20 sick sheep" sounds like "26 sheep"

OK....it's corny.......

I think theres a problem in the first riddle becoz theres no use of that "dyes" word!

And DS i would like to advise u to not to give us points just like that becoz they r to be given to those who answer correctly and not just answer!what im saying maybe bad for us but its good for u!actually its bad for no one!we are being honest not recieving any points without answering!so not dont give anymore points!only give to those who have given the correct answer!points are just not given like that to anyone!

and pls dont take me wrong this is an advise which must be followed!

new riddle:

From the beginning of eternity to the end of time and space, to the beginning of every end and the end of every place. What am I?

A bus driver was heading down a street in Colorado. He went right past a stop sign without stopping, he turned left where there was a "no left turn" sign and he went the wrong way on a one-way street. Then he went on the left side of the road past a cop car. Still - he didn't break any traffic laws. Why not?

And last:

A man was found dead in his study. He was slumped over his desk and a gun was in his hand. There was a cassette recorder on his desk. When the police entered the room and pressed the play button on the tape recorder they heard: "I can't go on. I have nothing to live for." Then there was the sound of a gunshot. How did the detective immediately know that the man had been murdered and it wasn't a suicide?

Einstein's Intelligence Quiz
Einstein wrote this quiz last century. He said that 98% of the people in the world cannot solve the quiz.

There are 5 houses in 5 different colors
In each house lives a person with a different nationality
These 5 owners drink a certain type of beverage, smoke a certain brand of cigar, and keep a certain pet
No owners have the same pet, smoke the same brand of cigar or drink the same drink.
Here's the question: Who owns the fish?
The Brit lives in a red house
The Swede keeps dogs as pets
The Dane drinks tea
The green house is on the left of the white house
The green house owner drinks coffee
The person who smokes Pall Mall rears birds
The owner of the yellow house smokes Dunhill
The man living in the house right in the middle drinks milk
The Norwegian lives in the first house
The man who smokes Blend lives next door to the one who keeps cats.
The man who keeps horses lives next door to the man who smokes Dunhill
The owner who smokes Blue Master drinks beer
The German smokes Prince
The Norwegian lives next to the blue house
The man who smokes Blend has a neighbor who drinks water
With these 15 clues the problem is solvable.

here's another:

A young man walks through the forest. He came to a bridge. In front of the bridge is a large man carrying an axe.
The man says, "If you want to cross this bridge, you must tell me a statement. If I think the statement is true, you will be strangled to death. If I say the statement is false, your head will be chopped off."
A few minutes later, the young man walked over the bridge, while the larger man stood pondering.

What was the statement the young man had given?

correct!

you said the statement, not the whole answer.

The man said, "My head will be chopped off."
If the man said the statement was false, the young man's head would be chopped off, making the statement true. If the man said the statement was true, the young man would be strangled to death, thus making it false.

I have a hard riddle.

A man lived in a house. One night, there was a storm. The man got depressed and he went to bed. The next day, the man was found dead, but many ships and people died. How did this happen?

Two Brothers rob a bank. One of them is heavily armed and demands that the bank teller give him all the money. The other brother is unarmed and is begging his brother to stop what he's doing. The armed brother then proceeds to fill the bag with money. His brother pleads with him to give the money back and the put the gun down. Meanwhile, the security guards have the armed brother in their sight but decide not to shoot. The brothers escaped with the money but are easily identified and captured. When the brothers go to court, they both walk free after their trial for robbing the bank. how is this possible?

Remember, CPhill! Caution!

Twins, but how did they get free? Something to do with the security not noticing similarities?

AzizHusain  Aug 23, 2014

They got free because they are identical and only one was definitely a robber and the witnesses could not identify which twin was guilty.

Am I rich now?

Okay, okay. I will.

The twins are in the same body. They were not killed because the other brother was not doing the crime, and the other did. They were free of trial because one was guilty, and the other wasn't. Fine, Melody. You can become rich. You win half that amount for getting one part correct.
