A dying king told his two sons that the one whose horse got to Mecca last would inherit his kingdom. At first the two sons tried to ride as slowly as possible towards Mecca. That night they stayed at a local inn. They told the innkeeper their dilemna and he spoke two words to them. The next morning the sons were racing as fast as they could to Mecca. What had the innkeeper told them?

The only thing that makes sense is that they switched horses. That would explain why they were trying so hard after they talked to him- to make sure the other guys horse finished last.

So I'll say the two words were either "switch horses" or "change horses"

Where you just watching scrubs on comedy central?
The answer is: A nickel, and the one that is not a nickel is a quarter.

This thing all things devours:
Birds, beasts, trees, flowers;
Gnaws iron, bites steel;
Grinds hard stones to meal;
Slays king, ruins town,
And beats high mountain down.

and another:

Alive without breath,
As cold as death;
Never thirsty, ever drinking,
All in mail never clinking

Voiceless it cries,

Mouthless mutters.

An egg, and wind.

It cannot be seen, cannot be felt,
Cannot be heard, cannot be smelt.
It lies behind stars and under hills,
And empty holes it fills.
It comes first and follows after,
Ends life, kills laughter.

You are stuck in a room. There are two doors out. Behind one of them is a bomb. There are two computers in the room with one keyboard attached to it. You can ask the computers 1 question without using "and" or any other conjunctions (what's your function?).

Things to remember:
-One question goes to both computers.
-One computer will tell you the truth and one computer will lie but you don'tknow which one is the one telling the truth.
-The computer knows which door the bomb is behind.
-This isn't like a trick where you have to take the computers to make a metal detector and determine where the bomb is. There are no saws to cut the table in half to make a hole.
