man catches an extremely large fish
he goes to the nearest phone booth which just happens to be on top of a cliff and right at the edge
he phones his best friend up
his friend says hello and the guy replies
"guess what..i caught a fish this big" <--------------------------> with his hands spreading out
he then dies...why

Your riddle is very interesting... is it because he's still holding the fish in one hand and the weight makes him topple over the cliff?

Anyway, a little easy math:
How much heavy is one brick if it has weight 1 kg and half brick?

The brick would then weigh 2 kgs...
Neil I think thats a trick question
Anyways I might have some sorta guess, dont ask me about it if its wrong... You would be giving a concert of some sort on a piano...
Here's a classic
In a certain town, Kevin the barber shaves all those and only those who do not shave themselves. Who shaves the barber?

Your classic riddle has no good answer. Both possible statements:
1. The barber shaves himself.
2. The barber does not shave himself.
are incompatible with riddle.
I think it calls in Math like Russel's paradox.

Although I've always been pathetic at this type of thing. I couldn't even get JKRowlings riddles on her website...
Neil... I will NOT be able to figure it out... I'll have to wait until someone solves it. Or you could PM with the answer?! I'm kidding!

And Jonas got it 12 minutes before me =)
I've always liked this one and found it raises debate sometimes:
You're On a Gameshow and given a chance to win a Night out with Lindsay...
All you have to do is pick from door A, B, or C and if she's behind it you win.
You pick door C to start with, but before it's opened the Host steps in and opens Door B, showing that there's nothing behind Door B.
The host now gives you the option, You can stay with Door C, or switch and pick Door A.
Statistically Speaking, which Door has a better chance of Lindsay being behind it?
or is There no difference?
And explain your answer.
