That's google.

That was easy. Riddles require much more thought.

Same idea/concept!


I'm changing the name of the thread at the start of the new year anyway.


So instead of calling it "Riddle" of the day... Maybe I will call it something like... "SPAAM Question of the Week!"


Of course I will still use all kinds of riddles. But to mix it up a little bit... I will also throw in sports, pop culture, and history type trivia questions.

Riddle of the Day - 12/12/12


You have a jug of milk, and you need to measure out just one cup.

How do you do this if you only have a three-cup measuring container and a five-cup container?

This was in one of Die Hard movies.

Fill the 3 cup, and dump it into the 5 cup. 2. Fill the 3 cup, and dump it into the 5 cup. 3. Whatever cannot fit into the 5 cup is equal to 1 cup (3 + 3 - 5 = 1)

pour milk into the three cup container. Then pour that same milk into the five cup container. Then fill the three cup container again. Then pour milk from the three cup to the five cup until the five cup is full. You now have exactly one cup left in the three cup container.

Riddle of the Day - 12/13/12

Here is a pretty popular riddle!

Don't cheat and use Google!


Three guests check into a hotel room. The clerk says the bill is $30, so each guest pays $10. Later the clerk realizes the bill should only be $25. To rectify this, he gives the bellhop $5 to return to the guests. On the way to the room, the bellhop realizes that he cannot divide the money equally. As the guests didn't know the total of the revised bill, the bellhop decides to just give each guest $1 and keep $2 for himself. Each guest got $1 back: so now each guest only paid $9; bringing the total paid to $27. The bellhop has $2. If the guests originally handed over $30, what happened to the remaining $1?

Gonna try to explain it and it may be confusing but I think I have it figured out...

The people paid $25 (for the room)...plus they tecnhically paid $2 extra for the bellhop bringing the total paid to $27. Then if you account their $3 refund (thanks to the thief bellhop), you get $30...make sense? So there is no money left over...

And since we like to show our work, here we go:

SPAAM Riddle of the Day - 12/17/12


See if you can solve this mystery out......




Mr. Jones arrived at his biology classroom at 8:00 am, as usual. Waiting for him in the hallway was Matilda Robbens, one of his eleventh grade students. She was carrying a red and white plastic cooler, the kind you pack picnic lunches in. Only, this cooler seemed to be shaking, all on its own.

“I got your frogs, Mr. Jones!” the freckle-faced tomboy yelped, holding up the agitated cooler. “Finally! Thirty frogs, like you wanted.”

“Good,” Mr. Jones responded. He unlocked the door to his classroom, flicked on the lights and walked inside. Then he unlocked the door to the storage room behind his front desk. Matilda trailed after him with her jumpy cooler.

“Here, put it on the counter, Matilda, next to the aquarium,” Mr. Jones instructed.

The girl set the cooler down on the black counter that ran the length of the narrow room, next to a large, empty aquarium. “It took me two whole weeks to catch all of them, Mr. Jones. Like you’ve taught us in class, the frog populations are way down, and I had a really hard time finding all you wanted. Really hard!”

“Five dollars a piece, Matilda,” Mr. Jones intoned, opening up the cooler and looking down at thirty healthy green and brown leopard frogs. “As we agreed.” One of the amphibians leaped up and almost hit the man in the nose, and Mr. Jones began transferring the rambunctious hoppers from the cooler to the aquarium.

“Ten dollars each,” Matilda countered.

Just then Kyle Kravetsky, the science department’s student lab assistant, stuck his head in the doorway.
“Here, Kyle,” Mr. Jones said, “help me get these frogs into the aquarium.”

“Not a chance, Teach,” Kyle grimaced, watching with distaste as a large green spotted specimen wriggled out of Mr. Jones hands and hit the counter hopping. “I’m not touching those slimy reptiles. Snakes, either. You don’t pay me enough for that.”

Mr. Jones snorted, grabbing up the rogue frog and squirting it into the aquarium.
“Speaking of pay …” Matilda reminded him.
“I’m sorry, Matilda. Five dollars per frog is all I have in the budget. I’ll get a check made up that you can pick up in class this afternoon.”

It was Matilda’s turn to snort, as she stomped out of the classroom.
“Speaking of checks, Mr. Jones, you think you can advance me my hundred dollars for this week?” Kyle asked. “See, I’ve got a date with-”

“You know you left the doors unlocked the other night?” Mr. Jones interrupted, turning on the thin, straw-haired teenager. “Sergio Ramos, the night custodian, informed me that when he came to clean the rooms at 6:00 pm Monday night, both doors were unlocked. I’ve warned you about that before, Kyle. With a key, comes responsibility. We have expensive equipment and toxic chemicals”

“Yeah, yeah, sorry about that, Mr. Jones. Won’t happen again. Now, about that advance …”
“See you in class this afternoon,” Mr. Jones dismissed the boy, as he bobbled the last of the squirming frogs into the aquarium.
When the biology teacher held up a frog to his eleventh grade class later that afternoon, he announced that they would be dissecting them during Friday’s class. A mixture of cheering and eewing went up, along with Marnie Pepper’s hand.

“I protest putting these innocent frogs to death, Mr. Jones!” the small, redheaded bundle of energy stated. As a self-described ‘animal activist’, the girl was concerned with the welfare and ethical treatment of all creatures, amphibious or otherwise.
“So noted,” Mr. Jones sighed. “Just like with the worms, Marnie, you can leave the classroom and study a dissection on the computer, while the real dissections are taking place.”

Marnie folded her arms over her chest and further declared, “I want it on record that the use of animals for experimental purposes is-”

“So noted!” Mr. Jones declared back, sticking the wriggling frog into the pocket of his lab coat.

A half hour after class concluded at 3:30, as Mr. Jones was locking his classroom door, he caught Sergio Ramos sauntering down the hallway. “I hope you do a better job of cleaning my class and storage rooms than you did last night, Sergio. Half of the wastepaper baskets weren’t even emptied and some of the lab tables weren’t wiped down. Not to mention, you broke another jar of calf brains.”

The lanky janitor glanced angrily around at the students snickering at him getting chewed out by Mr. Jones. “Hey, man,” he said, trying to act cool, “I just came to watch the volleyball game. I’m not on the clock ‘til six, you know.”

Mr. Jones grunted. Then he joined the large body of students and teachers heading towards the gymnasium to watch the girls’ volleyball team take on the school’s cross-town rival.
Marnie Pepper turned out to be the star of the game, her parents and a crowd of cheering admirers sweeping her and the rest of the team out of the school for a victory party at a local pizzeria right after the game ended at 6:00. Sergio Ramos locked the doors to the school shortly thereafter.

Mr. Jones first clue that something was wrong the next morning was when he spotted two frogs sitting in a puddle in the teachers’ parking lot. They eyed him suspiciously, and he eyed them. His second clue was when he found both the door to his classroom and his storage room unlocked. His final clue was when he saw the aquarium sitting empty, the window above it slightly ajar.
“Morning, Teach,” Kyle Kravetsky said, strolling into the storage room. “Hey, where are all the croakers?”

Mr. Jones gritted his teeth. “Apparently, they somehow escaped through a closed window sometime after I left the classroom – locked! – at 4:00 pm yesterday afternoon. Kyle!?”
As the teenager blushed redder than a Panamanian poison frog, Matilda Robbens popped her head into the room. “What’s going on? Hey, where’d all the frogs go?”

“They were here when I restocked those test tubes around five o’clock like you asked, Mr. Jones.” Kyle gulped. “I left a little while after that to refill Mr. Ludwig’s Bunsen burners in the chemistry lab. I, uh, think … I locked the doors.”
Mr. Jones simmered like pan-fried frogs’ legs, staring at the boy.

“Don’t worry, Mr. Jones,” Matilda piped up, “I can get some frogs pretty quick – for a price.”

Mr. Jones barged past his two students and out into the classroom proper. His glaring eyes took in the overflowing wastepaper baskets and the puddles of formaldehyde on the lab tables. “Looks like Ramos didn’t even bother cleaning my classroom at all last night!” he growled.

Then the irate biology teacher’s blood pressure dropped like a frog’s in winter mud hibernation, as he suddenly realized what happened. “I think I know who let the frogs out,” he hypothesized.


Who done it?

SPAAM Riddle of the Day - 12/19/12

Try your luck at this one....




A farmer has seventeen cows and three sons. He dies, leaving the following will:

"My oldest son will receive 1/2 of the cows, my second son will receive 1/3 of the cows, and my third sone will receive 1/9 of the cows. Each son must receive exactly the proportion I have specified, and none of the cows may be cut into parts. If my sons cannot find a way to share my cows properly, then none of them deserve them, and I give me cows to my neighbor, who has only one cow"

What can the sons do to win their inheritance?
