    Do you know any good riddels or brain teasers?
    I keep hearing easy ones in school that doesn't take much brain power to solve like this; cat is spelled c-a-t can you spell that without any C's? T-H-A-T.
    So if you know any good ones post them.

    The man who made it, doesn't want it. The man who bought it, doesn't need it. The man who needs it, doesn't know it.

    I am the beginning of sorrow, and the end of sickness. You cannot express happiness without me, yet I am in the midst of crosses. I am always in risk, yet never in danger. You may find me in the sun, but I am never seen out of darkness.

    You have two lengths of fuse. The only thing you know about the fuses is that they both take an hour to burn all the way. The speed of the burning varies, and you can't judge the remaining time by the remaining length; meaning, if you cut a fuse in half, the halves won't burn for the same amount of time. The only thing you do know is that the initial length of the fuse you're starting with takes an hour to burn all the way. Using only these two fuses, how can you measure 45 minutes?
