I found some simplistic riddles in a video. They interested me, and maybe you guys can answer them.

Rules:

1. No forfeiting. Doing so will stop time (at least for this debate).
2. In Round 2, I will give you the questions, and you will try to answer them.
3. In Round 3, I will give you the correct answers, and I'll allow you to attempt to refute them if you wish.
4. If I heavily disagree with one of your refutations or answers, I'll point them out in Round 4.

According to the video, a lot of preschoolers completed these questions with success. Is your common sense better than these children?

I accept. Best of luck.

Okay. Let's get into this. I'll post the video in reference in Round 4. The Contender must prove to the voters that they got 3 out of 4 questions correct.

The video does state that adults tend to over complicate things a bit. Is this true?

Question #1: How do you put a giraffe in a refrigerator?

Question #2: How do you put an elephant in a refrigerator?

Question #3: Noah must build another ark, this time bringing every single animal. But one animal didn't come to the ark. Which one was it?

Question #4: There's a river that's infested with alligators. How do you get across?

[All questions are taken from the video.]

Question #1: How do you put a giraffe in a refrigerator?

A: Easy. All you have to do is get the giraffe into the refrigerator and close the door. No need to over think this, like my opponent said.

Question #2: How do you put an elephant in a refrigerator?

A: Assuming this is in sequence like my opponent says in the comments, all you have to do is get the giraffe out of the fridge, get the elephant in the fridge, and close the door.

Question #3: Noah must build another ark, this time bringing every single animal. But one animal didn't come to the ark. Which one was it?

A: He doesn't bring the elephant. Why? Well, the elephant is still in the fridge.

Question #4: There's a river that's infested with alligators. How do you get across?

A: Aren't all the alligators supposed to be on the ark at this point? If so, then all you have to do is swim across the river. It's not like you'll be harmed. After all, the alligators aren't there anymore.

Those are the same answers from the video, which I'll post R4.

I would've accepted better answers, such as these:

1) Giraffes can't fit in a fridge.

2) Neither can Elephants.

3) Some people say "Refridgerators weren't in Noah's time", or "He still brought some elephants".

4) People would argue that the question is contradictory, as I said that there are alligators, then saying they're in the ark. (Or the Ark could be in the river, and the alligators escaped)

Con's answers might've been different if I didn't tell them that it was a sequence. But I'll accept the actual answers as well.

Now with that: Would you rather have Uxie, Mesprit, or Azelf?
missbailey8

Con

Coolio.

I choose Mesprit because of its high defense and attack stats, making it more well-balanced option than Uxie and Azelf . What does this have to do with the debate?

Bye.

The random question has nothing to do with the debate. You got all questions technically right.

And here's the video in question: https://www.google.com...;

I think I saw this one myself like a year ago. All of the questions so far ring a bell, just can't remember from where.

They do seem simple... which is the whole point of this.

This isn't the same thing. I could see the confusion, though. I'll probably have the picture ones called "Idiotest" from now on, since that's the name of the game show.

No I didn't, I was just curious. I wasn't sure if it was going to be like your last riddle debates or not.

You caught on to the trick, missbailey8. Did you see the video?

I have one question. Are these riddles supposed to be answered in sequence where one relates to the last or are they meant to be separate?
