The Train Station

There is a train station with a never ending line of trains coming forward. There is no bridge, and no other way to cross to the other side other than running across the tracks. A boy and girl stand on one side. The girl wants to cross to the grave yard on the other side to visit her mother's grave, and the boy wants to cross to visit his father in jail. How can they get across?

A man steals 3 golden balls from a Buddhist's temple. His only means of escape is to cross the old bridge spanning a river. He can't swim, there are no boats and he can't throw the balls to the other side. The bridge will only carry his weight and 2 golden balls besides. How will he cross the bridge with all his treasure?

Everyone Has It

What is dark and hollow to some, but full and bright to others? It can be found and lost by anyone, but not everyone will lose it. What is it?

Truth or Lies?

A man convinces you he is telling the truth. Later that day he tells you he is a liar. Is what he said earlier in the day the truth or is what he said later in the day the truth?

Obsessive Habits

Riddles for me are an obsessive habit. What is found at the beginning of a rabbit?
