These Are a few riddles I found while surfing the web.  Tell me what you think.  Answers are at the bottom.

Q1: The following sentence is false. The preceding sentence is true. Are these sentences true or false?

Q2: 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, and the third is full of lions that haven't eaten in 3 years. Which room is safest for him?

Q3: What's the least number of chairs you would you need around a table to sit four fathers, two grandfathers, and four sons?

Q4: Look at me. I can bring a smile to your face, A tear to your eye, Or even a thought to your mind. But, I can't be seen. What am I?

Q5: You do not want to have it, But when you do have it, You do not want to lose it? What is it?

Q6: What goes up and never goes down?

Q7: One word in this sentence is misspelled. What word is it?

Q8: There is a frog, dead in the middle of an island. If he swims north, the distance to the mainland is 2 meters. If he swims south, the distance to the mainland is 3 meters. If he swims east or west, the distance is 4 meters. Which way does he swim?

Q9: You have three stoves: a gas stove, a wood stove, and a coal stove, but only one match. Which should you light first?

Q10: Alive without breath, As cold as death; Never thirsty, ever drinking, All in mail never clinking.  What is it?

Q11: From the beginning of eternity To the end of time and space To the beginning of every end And the end of every place. What am I?

Q12: A petshop owner had a parrot with a sign on its cage that said "Parrot repeats everything it hears." A young man bought the parrot and for two weeks he spoke to it and it didn't say a word. He returned the parrot but the shopkeeper said he never lied about the parrot. How can this be?

1:Neither, it's a paradox. If the first is true, then the second must be false, which makes the first false; it doesn't work.

2: The third. Lions that haven't eaten in three years are dead.

3: Four. The four fathers could be grandfathers and are definitely sons already.

4: Your Memories.

5: A lawsuit.

6: Your age.

7: MISSPELLED. It isn't spelled wrong, the one word in this sentence IS "misspelled."

8: He doesn't swim at all, he is dead.

9: The match!

10: A Fish.

11: The letter E

12: The parrot was deaf!

I have one for you. I have more than plenty to fill your mind. I can sing and dance and even grind. But you can not shake my hand or have me go any place. Because where go, I always have space. I'm real, but not real, if you know what I mean. I have knowledge on how to make your own shooting beams. No matter how hard you try, I can never end. More and more come to see what I recommend. What am I?
