least favorite is omaplata, then maybe its a side choke? or a kneebar?

my way would worked too lol...ok i got it then

you pour a little bit from each of the 1000 bottles into 10 empty bottles and have 10 prisioners assigned to each bottle

my favorite submissions are leg locks so technically yes, kneebar is correct

and for the second riddle, the way you described does not pinpoint the exact bottle, but rather pinpoints 100 bottles that can potentially be poisoned. the way the ruler did it in the riddle only required 10 prisoners, 5 weeks to do and was successful in pinpointing the exact poisoned bottle. what did he do?

come on my answer is fine and takes less time (take a little from all 1000 bottles pour a little in ten bottles and have 10 prisoners only 1 prisoner dies and it takes 30 days according to the riddle)

i bet its a better answer anyway

read the riddle, it doesn't follow the answer. your answer would leave the king with 99 less bottles of wine then the way he did it. he used only 10 people, and was able to have all 999 of the nonpoisonous bottles in just 5 weeks. the parameters are what make it hard. your previous two answers don't follow the riddle therefore you are wrong. now guess again

This reminds me of a riddle my programming teacher gave us back in high school. The trick is to use base-2 instead of base-10. Using base-2, the maximum number of prisoners to die would be 10, since 1000 is represented with 10 digits in binary. If each prisoner represents a single digit ranging from 1 - 1111101000 and each bottle is numbered accordingly...each prisoner represented by a one would take a sip of the wine and the prisoners who died a month later would give you the exact bottle...each dead prisoner would represent a 1 while a living one would represent a 0...resulting in the number of the bottle.

Edit: and as a side note...the most prisoners to die with method would actually be only 9. If there were 1023 bottles , then there would be a 1 in 1023 shot of all 10 being poisened.

the ball is hit directly at second base and is caught(1) by the baseman while hes standing on the bag(2)the runner on second was leading off. If the runner on first tried to steal simultaneously and the second baseman tagged him with his glove thats three outs without ever touching the baseball... the glove is touching the ball not the fielder.

Sounds good to me...But i thought a strikeout would be involved somewhere.

Here's one posted on an old forum years ago. Let's see if anyone has any ideas (or the actual answer kicking around).

Farm-boy Luke went into a field and into a very large barn-like structure on the edge of the field. Later he came out, and as he was approaching the middle of the field he knew that when he reached it he would be dead. How did he know that?

Helpful hints:

- It was not Luke's or Uncle Owen's field.

- He had been to the same field on numerous occasions.

- He did not do any work on the field.

Good luck!

He accidentally went into his drunk, redneck neighbor's field and got shot for trespassing.

Nope.

I couldn't answer the question the first time, but I finally found the original one and it makes a little more sense.

Actually neither is right... Remember I said no fielders touch the ball...

He didnt touch it, his glove did.

alright let me give it a shot. the batter hits a pop up in the infield. an infield fly is called causing the 1st out. the runner from second base stops but the runner from first base is running with his head down and passes the runner from second base causing the 2nd out. the fly ball then comes down and his the runner from second base causing the 3rd out.

Is he a vampire? He's walking and he sees the sun rising, and knows he won't make it back in time. If not is he human? I have a whole list of crazy things he can be.

Hey Rush what's the answer to this one? I totally forgot about it and now it's bugging me. Or if anyone has guesses I'd like to know.
