The human mind is a complex machine and loves to handle a challenge. We are unable to thrive in an unstimulating environment and if we don't have any problems in our life, we would invent one and 'flex' our creative skills, utilize all the neurons in our brain to solve the problem. That is human nature. If you believe you don't already have enough problems in your life anymore, the following riddles will make your life difficult.
