Solve all 10 riddles/puzzles within a fortnight, and I will banish myself voluntarily from the forums. (Exception, I will post one more time in November). I will go back to "lurk" mode.Banned Participants: One Sin, Mrs. MacRoss, Myself, Rym and Scott. Rules:
Anyone who is not on my banned list can participate. Participates can post their answers for any question. Once all questions are cumulatively solved, I will leave. Any banned participant who posts on this thread makes this contest null and void.
I'll check in here and there to confirm which riddles are solved by my standards. There should be only one answer for each riddle, but if an interesting alternate answer comes up, I may accept that answer as well. Good Luck!Why?:
I decided to do this game because there are a lot of cry babies on this forum, and I'm tired of seeing people whining to Rym and Scott about banning me.
For these people I will offer this solution:
Please get over yourselves and stop crying about everything.Riddle #1 Solved! first by trogdor42
One day, Rym found himself trapped in a room with two doors. Behind the first door was a room made of thick glass that would magnify the Sun's heat to fry whoever went in. Behind the second door was a fire-breathing dragon that would fry you on the spot. Rym reached into his pocket and noticed he had some pocket lint, an old movie stub, a paper clip, and some chewing gum but that was it.

Not understanding how the economy and the Federal Reserve works, Ron Paul trades in all his money for 3 gold bricks. While walking home, he came to an old rickety bridge. The sign on bridge says, "Weight capacity: 150 pounds - No Exceptions." Ron Paul weighs 148 pounds, and each gold brick weighs one pound.
How did Ron Paul make it across safely in one trip with all of his gold?Riddle #4

Rym and Scott were about to leave on a morning flight to some anime con when Scott realized he forgot the presentation titled, "M.D. Geist: The greatest anime". He rushed back to get the presentation, but the night watchman said, "Do not get on that plane!!! I had a dream last night that it's gonna crash!! Not wanting to temp fate, Rym and Scott followed the watchman's advice. Sure enough, the plane crashed, and everyone died. That evening, Rym and Scott thanked the man for saving their lives, then fired him.

A long time ago, before the Patriot Act, in a faraway land, there lived a queen called Queen Toadstool and her gorgeous daughter, Princess Peach. The princess wished to be married, but Queen Toadstool would not allow it. So Queen Toadstool devised a scheme to rid the palace of suitors. All a suitor had to do to win Peach's hand was to draw a piece of paper from a golden box with a question mark on it. But there was a catch: there were two pieces of paper in the box. One said "My Child," resulting in the marriage to the princess, while the other said "Lava" which meant the suitor would be pushed off a platform into molten lava. Somehow, the suitors always seemed to end up in the molten lava.
One day a handsome plumber named Mario came along and Princess Peach fell head over heels for him. The princess pulled Mario aside and whispered, "I think my mother is a cheat. I believe both pieces of paper say "Lava". Mario assessed the situation and said, "It's-a-meeee, Mario - I got a plan." Aware that he cannot expose the queen as a cheater, how does Mario win Princess Peach's hand in marriage?
