Just some quick riddles to make you think.
It's good to think, we should think more often.
I'll start with an easy one to get your brain warmed up and get progressively harder.
(If you know them please don't spoil my fun of watching people's brains explode and revealing the answer.)

1) 2 fathers and 3 sons go fishing. Each catch 1 fish each.
What is the least amount of fish they could have caught?

2) What work can one never finish?

3)
1
11
21
1211
111221
??????
????????

4) A man who lives on the tenth floor takes the elevator down to the first floor every morning and goes to work. In the evening, when he comes back; on a rainy day, or if there are other people in the elevator, he goes to his floor directly. Otherwise, he goes to the seventh floor and walks up three flights of stairs to his apartment.
Why?

5) A father gives his son 10 cents. He gives his other son 15 cents.
What time is it?

6) What is the longest word in the English language?



There's Muffs points up for grabs if you get them.

RE: No google
Thanks to you - little fuck - I missed the liquor store. Dodgy

But I got it... almost fucked it on the last 2 numbers.
1
11
21
1211
111221
312211
13112221 ... the next would be
1113213211 ...I think.

I didn't give a shit about the other ones.... clocks piss me off and I thought it was language but saw you said that was incorrect.
1 fish would have been the least amount they could have caught (zero would be none).
I did like the one about the small person with the umbrella.


I'm getting a root beer now. Dodgy
