Screw you guys, I'm going home
If you switch all on how do you know which one is the right one? You haven't answer the question, I'm afraid.Originally posted by Stoned_Coder
switch them all on lol.... you will be sure you got the right one. Doesn't say you are only allowed to flick one switch.
Perhaps I didn't phrase it properly earlier. I resume the options.
- The three switches start in the off position.
- You cannot see if the lamp is on or off unless you walk into the room.
- You are allowed to walk into the room only once.
- You can switch on/off the switches as many times as you like.
- You have to find what switch is the right one.

Lo bueno si breve dos veces bueno (Baltasar GraciŠn 1601-1658)
Yep time was the answer
How about this one:
A box without hinges, key, or lid,
Yet golden treasure inside is hid.
Well, there's the blatantly sexual answer that would prolly just get people mad at me, so we won't go there
How about the mind?
how about ...... EGG
I am a big fan of J.R.R. Tolkein lol
Yep that's right - egg is the answer.
"Riddles in the Dark" Chapter 5 from the Hobbit was the source of my posted riddles. Always good fun to read.

That riddle was written by tolkein... the answer is egg!!!
Jeez, and I just started reading that the other day, too.
I still liked my first answer the best
Here's an original (pretty crap but)
Eternal watcher, fades into sand,
Built by a people, of a once great land.
Sleek and powerful is my form,
My missing feature is makes me forlorn.
I've heard sales of the series have gone through the roof with FOTR looming on the horizonI've got my beak in the 1st LOTR book at the moment!
The Sphinx? 42?
The Sphinx it is. Methinks my riddles could yet be more challenging.
Oh yeah - zen, I guess that would work, but it's not the answer I was looking for... Time should start as soon as one of the hourglasses is flipped.
