[QUOTE=sakurasuka][size=1]A man took a two-day trip on horseback. He did not make any un-necesary stops. It took him [i]exactly[/i] two days. He rode out on Tuesday, and returned on Tuesday.
How is that possible?[/size][/QUOTE]
I'm going to guess that the trip took two days, but the trip back took five days.

Here's one:

Two identical twin sisters each had a glass of the same drink. Each glass also had the same amount of drink and poison in them. One sister drank all of her drink immediately, while the other sister took her time. The sister who drank it immediately lived, while the other one died. Why? (Keep in mind that there was no antidote involved and neither of the sisters had health problems, nor were they immune to the poison.)

This may have something to do with the human body. The first one by drinking it all at once her body rejected it and threw it up afterwards before she could digest enough poison to kill her.
While the second sister but taking her time there wasn't enough poison in each swallow for her body to reject it but she eventually had enough poison to kill her.

[QUOTE=shinji172]
You throw away the outside and cook the inside. Then you eat the outside and throw away the inside. What did you eat?[/QUOTE]

Meat! You skin the animal throwing away the outside. You cook the meat on the bone. Then you eat the meat and throw away the bone. The inside which was the meat becomes the outside of the bone. The inside layer from the first sentance becomes the outside layer of the second sentance.

[size=1]Yay, you got it right [;[/size]

[/quote]

[size=1]Yupp, that's right, they don't bury survivors because not only were there none, but you don't bury people who are still alive [: Good job!!

I really can't think of the answer to the drink one, though. I'll have to sleep on that >_>

I''ll edit in just a minute with another riddle, m'kay?[/size]

The poison is in the ice of their drinks. The first one drank hers quickly so the ice had no time to melt. The second sister drank hers slowly, so the ice melted and released the poison.

A man was found shot dead in his study. He was slumped over his desk and a gun was in his hand. There was a cassette recorder on his desk. When the police entered the room and pressed the play button on the tape recorder they heard, "I can't go on. I have nothing to live for."Then there was the sound of a gunshot. How did the detective immediately know that the man had been murdered?

A person in the eye of a sphinx. As a baby (the morning) you crawl on four legs. As an adult (noon) they walk on 2 legs and as an elderly person (dusk) they walk with a cane, making up their third leg.

[B]After teaching his class all about roman numerals (X = 10, IX=9 and so on) the teacher asked his class to draw a single continuous line and turn IX into 6. The only stipulation the teacher made was that the pen could not be lifted from the paper until the line was complete. How could this be done?[/B]
