I am holding two coins in my closed fist.  The total amount of the coins is 15 cents.  One of the coins is not a nickel.  What are the two coins?

* The coins I am holding are USD.

I'm not shur but I think it's this: the one of them is not a nickle is a dime and a nickle so (basically what I said was that you only said one was not a nickle so that allows the other to be a dime and nickle) but I could be wrong, I haven't heard this before I'm just guessing because to be cirian of it you would say that neither is a nickle.,( also nothing can phisically add up to 15 withought a nickle)...


 I'd say it is a nickle and a dime.


You are correct , it's nothing though! Good job. :)

You both are correct.

Four men were in a boat on the lake. The boat turns over, and all four men sink to the bottom of the lake, yet not a single man got wet! Why?

They were all Chuck Norris. Cause Chuck Norris doesnt get wet, the water gets Chuck Norris'd.

Lake of Fire? Methane? Magic?

They didnt get wet, they got muddy?

The men were all married, so there were no "single" men in the boat. So, yes, no "single man" got wet... the "married men" got wet!

Two riddles:

Four men of equal strength need to cross a river, as lava is slowly travelling towards them. There's one boat, which can take 2 people at once. 

One man is light enough to row across in 1 minute, one man in 2 minutes, one man in 5 minutes and one man in 10 minutes. When two are travelling together, the boat goes at the speed of the slower individual. Obviously the boat has to be rowed back to collect the other people, so if the 1 minute man and the 10 minute row across together and the 1 minute man rowed back, total journey time for them would be 11 minutes. 

They have 17 minutes to cross the river before they become quite crispy and super dead. How is it done? 

----

Also, and sorry this is in capitals, I copied it from the net:

3 MEN GO INTO A MOTEL.  
THE MAN BEHIND THE DESK SAID THE ROOM   IS $30,
SO EACH MAN PAID  $10  AND WENT TO THE ROOM.  

A WHILE LATER THE MAN BEHIND THE DESK REALIZED 
THE ROOM WAS ONLY  $25,    SO HE 
SENT THE BELLBOY TO THE 3 GUYS' ROOM WITH   $5.  

ON THE WAY, THE BELLBOY COULDN'T FIGURE OUT 
HOW TO SPLIT  $5  EVENLY BETWEEN 3 MEN, 
SO HE GAVE EACH MAN A  $1  AND 
KEPT THE OTHER   $2  FOR HIMSELF. 

THIS MEANT THAT THE 3 MEN EACH PAID  $9   FOR THE ROOM, 
WHICH IS A TOTAL OF  $ 27,  
ADD THE  $2  THAT THE BELLBOY KEPT =  $29.   

WHERE IS THE OTHER DOLLAR?  


------------

EDIT: Both the answers available online, but don't be a spoilsport!

The dollar is lost in the equation. The part that messes it up is when you say each man payed nine dollars, but to mathematically come back to 30 the equation cant be separate. They paid 10 dollars each, and 5 dollars were distributed now between 4 people.

there is no "other dollar" because you were supposed to minus the $2 the bellboy kept and not add it since you're not trying to get to 30 anymore. you're trying to get to 25 (which is how much the room cost)

1 min man and 5 min man = 6 min there and back
leave 5 min man

1 min man and 2 min man = 9 min there and back
leave 2 min man

1 min man and 10 min man there. But they have already left that side of the river, so the lava cant get them on the water and they have extra time.


They could all swim at once

Use the nearby bridge

Ok, I have 3 but they are short.

1.How far can a dog run into the woods? 

2.What can you put in a wood box that will make it lighter?

3. Six glasses are in a row. The first three are full of juice; the second three are empty. By moving only one glass, can you arrange them so empty and full glasses alternate?
