Ya, ya I was kidding(shifts eyes nervously to side, and shuffles foot).
See it now, pretty cool

Riddle 1:

Someone tells you: “The day before yesterday, I was 44 years old and next year I’ll be 47.”

What day is it and when is his birthday?

Riddle 2:

Bob leaves his house to go to work. His speed is constant.

After a while, he passes a sign telling him he’s at kilometer XY.

An hour later, another sign indicates he’s now at kilometer YX. (Same numbers as the 1st sign, but reversed.)

Another hour later, a 3rd sign says he’s at kilometer X0Y. (Same two numbers, but with a zero between.)

How fast is Bob going?

The N is actually really easy. Look for the line that ends slightly before all the others and then look for the N inside that line.

http://www.ocf.berkeley.edu/~wwu/riddles/intro.shtml

A large collection of riddles ranging from easy to very hard. Some require general math and stat skills, while others are much more narrow in focus requiring advanced calculus, computer programming, physics, etc… The forums have some pretty nifty discussions going on about the more ambiguous solutions.

The Law School Admissions Test has sections on logic games similar to this. http://www.lsac.org/LSAT/lsat-prep-materials.asp [/quote]

beat me to it!

I considered law school last year, and dove into LSAT prep. I liked the challenge, but the end result of going into Law failed to captivate me.

Anyone else able to spot the B’s, the 1, and the Q incredibly easily but have trouble with the 6 and the C?

Have fun with it
