We were discussing the puzzle, and possibly confusing people. Hence editing out our posts.

Oh, man. I love stuff like this. Picked up this book not too long ago, been having fun with it. Need to find more.

In the meantime, here was a favorite little riddle of mine growing up:

Forward I am heavy, but backwards I am not. What am I?

A ton.

I swear I only got this one because I haven't had coffee yet. Otherwise I'd be super overthinking it.

This one always makes me laugh for some reason:

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.
The third is full of lions that haven't eaten in 3 years.

Which room is safest for him?

Yeah, I know it's an easy one, but I do always enjoy watching when people manage to overthink it :lol:

A “ton” written backwards becomes “not”
