The Riddle thread

Lets have a thread dedicated to riddles. Someone posts a riddle and then the first person to answer correctly can give their own riddle. Sound like fun? Well it is something to do, anyway. OK, a riddle that you've probably heard before, but never mind:

There is a guy called Mr. Wood. He is a detective and he has to work out mysteries. One day he went to a scene of a suicide. He walked inside and saw his dear friend Tom.

Tom was facing down on a table with a gun in his right hand. There was a pool of blood on the table, also a napkin and a book.

Mr. Wood looked around the room, and then he saw a cassette tape recorder, he went over to it and pressed play. The sounds of the tape were as follows :

It was Tom's voice, he said ''Mr. Wood, I know you'll be the first person to hear this, and you were such a good friend to me, but I can't go on any longer, I don't want to live any more'' the next sound he heard was a gun shot, and the body fall onto the table.

Mr. Wood paused for a moment, then said ''Tom didn't commit suicide, he was murdered''

How Does Mr. Wood know tom was murdered?

because the tape recorder had been rewound, it was at the start, if tom had indeed been the only one there once he'd have shot himself the recording would have continued

OK. A woman married 10 men on 10 different days in one city. But she did not break any laws. How was this possible?

Is this a "Riddle Poggs" thread instead?

Ok...another easy one...

A taxi driver was going up a one way street the wrong way. He passed two coppers on the corner, and yet they just ignored him. Why?

Nope...sorry...while I'm here I should clarify for our non-English members..."coppers" is slang for police officers. As in "cops" but cooler

What do the numbers one, two, three, four, five, six, eight, nine, ten and twelve have in common that no other numbers have?

Try this riddle: placed above it makes greater things small. Placed beside it makes small things greater. In matters that counts it always comes first. Where others increase it keeps all things the same. What is it?

Ahh ! So very close, it was the number one.

Now try this one: What I am you will often find here; you will never really have me - yet you will often give me up. What am I?
