    there you have a puzzle (an old one though):

    an old man dies and his possessions (17 camels) are given to his 3 sons. the old man wanted his oldest sun to get 1/2 of the camels, the middle one 1/3 of the camels and the youngest 1/9 of the camels.
    now they have no clue how to solve this, as they dont want to cut the camels into pieces.

    so they go see a wise man and tell him about their prob. he thinks for a moment and then gives them 1 of his own camels. they have 18 camels then. so the oldest gets 9 of those, the middle one gets 6, the youngest gets 2. that leaves them with 1 camel left over, which they give back to the wise man. how did that work?

    Because the father left 1/18 of his possessions unaccounted for? I don't know, the whole riddle just kind of makes sense.

    This looks familiar. Is it from "Through the Looking Glass"?

    well "TheGambit" if you came up with better riddles yourself then i wouldn't criticizing them, now would i?
    i know that i can't come up with good riddles
    why do you think that i don't post new ones very often?
    however i don't change the subject of i thread when it is already specified either
