This thread is devoted to those brain teasers that make your mind hurt. Don't post the answer to the riddle right away to give people some time to answer them. I'll begin with an easy one...

A butcher is 5 foot 10 inches tall. He weighs twice as much as his daughter who it 5 foot 2 inches tall. What does the butcher weigh?

Fine, here is a much tougher one.

Think of words ending in -GRY. Angry and hungry are two of them. There are only three words in the English language. What is the third word? The word is something that everyone uses every day. If you have listened carefully, I have already told you what it is.

Looking at it a second time, there are actually a couple possible answers. But neither of them actually have to do with "gry"--- "gry" is just a red herring.

A woman is about to be executed. Since she has been a good citizen most of her life, the executioner gives her the option of chosing by which way she can die, no matter how bizarre, time-consuming, or costly it is. What manner of death should she choose, or will it not make a difference?

A farmer was going to town with a fox, a goose and a sack of corn. When he came to a stream, he had to cross in a tiny boat, and could only take across one thing at a time. However, if he left the fox alone with the goose, the fox would eat the goose, and if he left the goose alone with the corn, the goose would eat the corn. How does he get them all safely over the stream?

How does he get them all safely over the stream?

1. Take the goose across the river and leave it, paddle back.
2. Take the corn across the river, leave it, and paddle back with the goose.
3. Leave the goose on the first bank and take the fox across, paddle back alone.
4. Bring the goose across.

Heres an interesting but not impossible one. A prisoner is given an opportunity for freedom by playing a game. He is in a room with three switches, in an adjoining room that he cannot see is a light bulb. Two of the three switches do nothing and one turns on the light. He must discover with certainty which one turns on the light and he is only allowed to enter the room once. How can he be certain(not just a percentage) which switch works?

Turn one switch on and then off, turn one on, and don't do anything to the other. If the light bulb is hot, but not on, it is the first one. If the light is on, it's the second. If the light bulb is cold and off, it's the third.
