A married couple went to a hospital to have their baby delivered. Upon their arrival, the doctor said he had invented a new machine that would transfer a portion of the mother’s labor pain to the baby’s father. He asked if they were willing to try it out. They were both very in favor of it. The doctor set the pain transfer to 10% for starters, explaining that even 10% was probably more pain than the father had ever experienced before. However, as the labor progressed the husband felt fine and told the doctor to go ahead and kick it up a notch. The doctor then adjusted the machine to 20% pain transfer. The husband was still feeling fine. The doctor checked the husband’s blood pressure and was amazed at well he was doing. At this point, they decided to try it out for 50%. The husband continued to feel quite well. Since the pain transfer was obviously helping his wife considerably, the husband encouraged the doctor to transfer all of the pain to him. The wife delivered a healthy baby with virtually no pain, she and her husband were ecstatic. Why wasn’t he in any pain?
The machine transfers the pain to the baby’s father. The wife cheated on the husband with the mailman it wasn’t the husband’s baby. According to the original riddle, the mailman is dead on the doorstep when the couple returned home (which Erin intentionally left out because it make the answer too obvious for professional riddie solvers)
Two spies want to get in an enemy’s military base. In order to get in, they have to give the correct countersign to the guard at the gate after he gives them a sign. So they wait hidden nearby the gate so that they will overhear the countersign from another soldier. One soldier comes and the guard gives the sign: “6”. The soldier answers “3”. The guard lets him pass. Another soldier comes. The guard says “12” and the soldier gives the answer “6”. The guard lets him pass. So, the first spy goes at the gate and the guard says “10”.The spy, sure that he knew the answer as he was, says “5”. Immediately, the guard shoots him dead. Then the other spy, who saw that the first spy was killed when he gave the countersign, had now understood what the right answer would be, whatever the guard’s sign was. So, he walks to the gate and the guard says “8”.The spy gives the correct answer and the guard lets him in. What was the answer that the spy gave?
5. It’s the number of letters it takes to spell the word the guard says.
