    "5 Riddles..."

    "This is one of the best five riddles I have seen... The Answers are at the bottom. Riddle 5 is amazing.
    It sharpens those neurons in your brain. And stalls the Alzheimer's for years. (~Barbara)

    1. A murderer is condemned to death. He has to choose between three rooms. The first is full of raging fires; the second is full of assassins with loaded guns; and the third is full of lions that haven't eaten in 3 years. Which room is safest for him?"

    "Answers: 1. The third room. Lions that haven't eaten in three years are dead. That one was easy, right?"

    One point for ChessPraxis; Saturday's Riddle will be worth two....

    "5 Riddles..."

    2. A woman shoots her husband. Then she holds him under water for over 5 minutes. Finally, she hangs him.
    But 5 minutes later they both go out together and enjoy a wonderful dinner together. How can this be?

    Yes, you beat me to it.

    At least it took 32 minutes this time, but I'm still 6 hours too late, hehe.

    Riddle 3. What is black when you buy it, red when you use it, and gray when you throw it away?

    Note: It's already Sunday in London, UK.

    Using a chess problem terminology I would call this riddle a "cook" - that is, with a double key.
    If she could be a photographer, she could also be a - hunter. She shot a rabbit, put the poor thing in the water and hang it (and then cook it). And she took this rabbit stew as a catering for her ill grandmother.
