Let's Get Thinking!

Question #1

How many holes does a straw have?

Question #2

How can you stand behind your father when your father is standing behind you?

Question #3

What happens once in a minute, twice in a moment, but never in a thousand years?

Question #4

There was a man, dressed head to toe in black, walking in the middle of the road. Suddenly a huge black car with its headlights off zoomed around the corner and screeched to a halt in order to not hit the man in black.  How on Earth did the driver of the black car see the man dressed in black?

Question #5

What has a ring but no finger?

Question #6

What is white when it's dirty?

Question #7

Once there was a rich man who lived in a mansion. On the top floor of the mansion there was three rooms. In one room the man kept gold, in another money, and another precious gems. One night, an arsonist set the mansion on fire. Which of the three rooms did the police extinguish first?

Question #8

What has thirteen hearts and no other organs?

Question #9

In a faraway kingdom, a criminal was sentenced to imprisonment in one of the four dungeons of torture. The dungeon-master told the criminal that if he chose the right dungeon, he would live. Otherwise, he would die. His choices were: The dungeon of fire, a  roaring furnace that burned day and night; The dungeon of tigers, where there are hoards of tigers that have not eaten for a year; the dungeon of vipers, an enormous pit full of snakes; or the dungeon of scorpions, where violent scorpions scuttled over everyone and everythung. Which dungeon should the criminal choose?

(Sorry about the length of this one guys!)

I disagree with the first one. A straw is always cylindrical and therefore should have two "holes". A torus from what I understand is ring-like. No one would call a ring a straw or vice versa.

Going by the topological argument, a cube is equivalent to a cuboid and ultimately to a a quadrilateral, which is obviously incorrect.

And for the fifth one, all the outer planets have rings and not a single ring, but only Saturn is well-known.

I would say it is a phone like Fuse said below or a bell or a doorbell or even a clock! All of them ring and don't have a finger. (Clock has hands not fingers!) 😉

Although the above suggestion by @Fuse for a telephone that has a ring, is probably better (because Saturn isn't the only planet with a ring)
