The game's very simple. You just have to post a riddle, and the person who posts next should try answering it, and should post their own riddle.

Example:
Why do birds fly South in winter?

A large truck is crossing a bridge 1 mile long. The bridge can only hold 14000 lbs, which is the exact weight of the truck. The truck makes it half way across the bridge and stops. A bird lands on the truck. Does the bridge collapse?

No. You have to subtract the gas that was used while driving the half mile.

Who are the two brothers who live on opposite sides of the road yet never see each other?

Allow Me!
Let's examine the numbers:
77, 49, 36, 18, 08, 00

Counting the differences makes no difference, but multiplication means:
7X7=49
Does this work for later ones?
4X9=36
3X6=18
1X8=08
0X8=00

Indeed it does. Ercule, am I correct?
