    Your answer was indeed correct, the only time page 165/166 cannot be on the same page, is when the book has leading (unnumbered) pages, and in this case you could make the argument that the detective meant the 165th face of paper, irrelevant of markings by author.

    How about you posted another riddle before mine had been answered. Patience, riddles are not something that you quickly move on with. They are something to be mulled over, thought about, and then finally answered.

    Mulled over, or get mad after 5 minutes and give up.

    The bicycle one is pretty old, they represent bicycle playing cards, he was cheating and when the extra card was found he was killed for cheating.

    Also, coffin.



    Can we not use riddles that don't follow the old rules? Riddles referencing brands or companies are disallowed.

    I know the answer, but i wont give it away. Here is one: A professor, after giving a long speech, wanted to test one of his theories. His theory was that people after listening to something for a long time, weren't as good at mental excersises, as they were before. So, after he was done, he told people this riddle:

    What five letter word, when you take away four of its letters, still is pronounced the same. For example, if it was two letters, and I said 'Oh', if you took away the 'h' it would still sound the same." After everyone had written down their answers, he asked them all to form a line to submit the answers.

    P.S. I just made this up. It might be similar to others, but I don't know.

    The German owns the fish. Attached is working out, as this one was particularly difficult.
