    A nice riddle

    Ok, this is a little off topic, but not totaly because it has to do with "war" (sort of).
    A friend asked me this riddle today. How you answer says something about you...Read it and try to answer, keep in mind that the answer might be in the next posts so don't read them before you're finished thinking about it. Some of you might know it. She said it was famous.



    "Mr. Smith and his son Arthur ride in a car and hit a tree. Mr. Smith dies on spot and Arthur is rushed to the hospital in critical condition. As arthur is prepared for the operation to save his life, the surgeon enters the room and yells 'Oh! my son, Arthur!!".

    Explain it...

    I was going to say that the Surgeon was going to say "Your father didnt die he is alive", and the Surgeon said "my son" not literally.

    But NewKid spoiled it for me.

    I was going to say that the surgeon is the real father of the boy , maybe because his mom cheated on her husband.

    Me too. But I thought that it was his real dad by divorce. And the one that died was Mr. Smith (Step dad) and had a different name from the real dad.

    Anyways, am I crazy for thinking that? I guess so. I should go commit myself right now.

    I got another one for you guys to see if your a real nut or not.

    Two daughters are at there sisters funeral. One of the daughters sees a handsome young man. She talks to him and she finds out that he was good friends with the sister that died and the other sister thats with her. One week later her other sister dies.

    The answer is on the next post.

    Right answer to be sane.... I don't know what happened???

    Wrong answer to be a complete f*cking nut job.... The sister killed her other sister to see the young gentleman again at the next funeral.

    Every psychotic patient that was given this test failed. If you failed, please stay far away from me, thank you.

    My answer was something like the handsome man was making his rounds killing all the sisters for some reason...

    Oh yeah, it doesn't mean you're crazy if you think that the man or anything else killed her. Your only crazy if you think that the sister killed the other one. Anyways, ta da daaa.

    Explain it...

    First , 'dies on spot' , either he died on his dog spot , or you meant to write 'dies ON the spot .

    second , the statement " 'Oh! my son, Arthur!!". dosent nessecarly mean the speaker is refering to 'Arthur' thier son .

    third , i know im way off ,

    Good point. On spot. It wasnt on the spot.

    But if it was a dog. The name would have to be in capital, and spelled like "Spot".

    Could have been someone who held a superior position.. like a leader tyep figure...

    Sort of like a priest saying "oh my son, how are you" or someone in that perspective....Of course it could have been the mother... or someone who is just emotional in their line of work, and was hurt by his condition.....

    or just a person who was grossed out... could be anyone... so many ways to explain... lol There isn't a right answer.
    No need for closure folks.

    Your riddle was sent to me by Bouncer a long time ago. I answered it right. From what I understand it's used to determine psychopath way of thinking. The riddle I posted, according to my friend is used to determine chauvenistic state of mind (did I spell it right?).
    I guess the fact that I got your riddle right and my riddle wrong (I did answer it eventually, but it took some "guidance"), makes me a chauvenist psychopath....


    BTW, I got your riddle right in the second guess...first one was complicated and I lost myself trying to explain it, so I figured a psychopath would have a simpler reason....and then I got it.

    "war between sexes"
    The feminine war for equality. This riddle determines chauvenistic state of mind.

    O.fO.shO, being that English isn't my mother tongue, I have permission from the moderators to make mistakes every now and then...Thanks for the corrections anyway.

    The doctor is a woman, hence, his mama

    LOL, I don't think your crazy. In fact, I don't believe in a lot of those test cuz they're really not accurate.

    Just like how psychologists say that you can tell if someone is lying if they move their eyes or body to the left to activate their creative brain hemisphere to create a lie. Well a test was done on that and everyone failed, so the point is that it is one hundred percent innacurate. lol

    You both told it wrong.

    Here is how it's supposed to be told:

    "A girl goes to her mother's funeral. At the funeral she sees an handsome stranger (man) who she has never seen before. Although they don't exchange a word, she falls madly in love with him. A week later she KILLS her sister. Why?"

    I guess we know different versions of it


    Here's another one I heard on the radio several years ago. Students from Cambridge and children in kindergarten were asked this. Most children got the answer right, most students got it wrong. Maybe you know it.

    "What is bigger than God,
    the poor have it,
    the rich need it
    and if you eat it, you die?"
