A young4 woman is attending her mother's funeral. While there, she meets a man she has never seen before and falls in love immediately. After the funeral she tries to find him but cannot. Several days later she kills her sister.

Why does she kill her sister?

Blimey!!!!!!!!!

This seems a bit extreme, but the logic is, if he attended her Mother's funeral, then he would

attend her Sister's funeral and she would meet him again.

I am probably wrong of course Embarassed Laughing

There is a party of 100 high-powered politicians. All of them are either honest or liars. You walk in knowing two things:

At least one of them is honest.
If you take any two politicians, at least one of them is a liar.

From this information, can you know how many are liars and how many are honest?

I have just turned my lappy upside down to see which of the letter keys read the same.

I reckon it’s:-

Z S O I N X H

You don’t say if you can only use a letter once.

I think that you would need to make the word like a palindrome otherwise

it wouldn’t have the correct letter order upside down.

I'm on it.

Struggling like mad with the letters I've picked.

I'm sure the word will have to be a palindrome.

The only other thing I've not checked is using letters that don't

reverse as themselves but change.

‘W’ and ‘M’ reverse, but the ‘W’ has sloping sides and the ‘M’ straight sides,

so not certain if that is allowed.

I spent FOREVER on this last night, to no avail.
I noticed that the last few post are loaded with innuendo and subtle hints.
Since 'M' and 'W' are an option, I have an answer, but not completely certain if it is right.
I suspect mache and Mr K are way ahead of stupid old me.

A very famous chemist was found murdered in his kitchen today. The police have narrowed it down to six suspects. They know it was a two man job. Their names: Felice, Maxwell, Archibald, Nicolas, Jordan, and Xavier.

A note was also found with the body: '26-3-58/28-27-57-16'.

Who are the killers?

I thought that he being a Chemist was crucial to the riddle.

The obvious conclusion is that the numbers are the elements on the periodic table.

26-3-58/28-27-57-16

Fe-Li-Ce / Ni-Co-La-S

Felice and Nicolas

A bank is getting robbed and one of the robbers tells one of the tellers to give him all of the money. The teller tells him she doesn't have access to it.

Suddenly the phone rings. The robber tells the teller to answer it and not give them away. She picks up the phone and it happens to be her mother. She tells her mother "Is this an emergency mom? Call me when I get home, I could use some help painting." Then she hangs up.

The robbers continue to try to get into the vault but twenty minutes later the police show up with the tellers mom and arrest them all

How did the police know about the robbery?
