Pro

In this debate, it really doesn't matter who's Pro or Con. This debate will pretty much go like this

Round 1A: Pro posts a riddle
Round 1B: Con attempts to answer Pro's riddle, and then posts another riddle
Round 2A: Pro tells Con if they are right or wrong, then does all of the above

...And so on until round 4b appears to be unanswerable because Pro cannot respond, then Pro posts the answer to his/her 4a riddle and attempts to answer Con's riddle in the comment section.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I do have some rules before I start though:

1. These riddles must be from heart, NOT from the internet.
2. The debate must follow the format I just laid out.
3. No giving the other person hints for the answers.
4. The opponent must give all clues to the riddle.
5. If you have any problems with the rules, say them in the next round/your turn.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
The voters can vote in one of two ways (or both)

1.Whoever had the hardest riddles for you (the voter) to answer
2.Whoever answered the least amount of riddles correctly
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
And now for riddle number 1:

A man is found dead inside a car. The police know he has been shot by a gun, but the doors and windows are in perfect shape. The man was the only person in the car, and the police also know that he was shot from outside of the car. This is all the information I can give to you about this riddle.

How did he die?
Im_always_right

Con

He was shot then put in his car.

Debate Round No. 1

Pro

You are wrong. He was shot by air;the car is a convertible.

The answer to your debate is either spirit or the holy spirit (both related enough to be the same answer)

Now for riddle number 2:

A man was shot and killed in a room. This room was on a high floor of an apartment. The only clues in the room are windows, a puddle of water by the windows, a door (no the murderer did not walk in and shoot the man) and an air vent that is still running (the murderer did not climb through the vent and shoot the man).

How did he die?
Im_always_right

Con

Sorry about answering in the comments, I wasn't sure if I'd take it or not.
_____________________________________________________________________________

You were incorrect the answer to my riddle, is nothing (BTW, the holy spirit is the same as God).

______________________________________________________________________________

The killer climbed up the apartmant shot him and left. IDK.
______________________________________________________________________________

What room has no windows, ceilings, floors or doors?

I guess your answers right. It's a bit more complex than that.
But I'll give you that one.

I don't really know the answer to yours, a dream room? Broom? Whatever.

Here's my third riddle.

A man comes to work every day and works on the 22nd floor of his office building. There is an elevator and a set of stairs to get to floor 22. The man can only take the elevator on a rainy day, and on a sunny day he must take the stairs. It isn't the boss's orders, it's just impossible on a sunny day for the man.

Why is this?
Im_always_right

Con

Mushroom
_______________________________________________________________________________

Multiple answers
A) He is a midget and can't reach the buttons, but on rainy days has his umbrella

B) The elevator is hydrolocally powered.

Pro

You were right, it was A.

The answer to your riddle is 15 apples.

Now for my riddle number 4
This one may be a bit confusing

I left on a two day trip on my horse on Monday. I came back on Friday.

What happened?
Im_always_right

Con

A) The horse you left on his name is Monday, you switched horses, and the horse you came back on is named Friday. (Some parts may vary)

B) You crossed the International Date Line.

You already stated a mushroom is a room... therefore the top of a mushroom is a ceiling :D.

The answer is a riddle.

The only reason I can figure these out is I used to do riddles all the time.
I'm not that creative, (after all I am a natural blonde).
Posted by slayer54321 8 years ago
slayer54321
Well I honestly have no idea what the answer to that is.

Oh, and answer A is correct. You're good.
Posted by gahbage 8 years ago
gahbage
No he wasn't, that's another answer to your riddle.
Posted by slayer54321 8 years ago
slayer54321
so that means he was shot from outside of the car while the man was driving.

gahbage, the by air thing was a mistake, he was still wrong
