Just imagine you’re lost in the woods, no
food, water or phone! What would you do to survive? No, you can’t just imagine yourself
surviving, that’s cheating! What you have to do is to turn on your IQ and dust off your
survival skills. Don’t have survival skills? No worries! We’re here to test your skills
and train your brain, filling it with the knowledge you need to survive any situation!
These short survival riddles will definitely boost your brain and challenge your logic
to the max. So buckle up and let’s go! Joe And Rachel.
Joe and Rachel went for a walk along the river by their summer house. Joe decided to go in
for a swim. Rachel wanted to read a book. He was having fun, but suddenly a strong current
caught him and started to drag him away from the shore. How can he survive? A. Swim against
the tide. B. Stay calm and slowly swim towards the shore.
C. Go with the flow. You have 12 seconds to choose the right option! Option A is wrong! You’ll quickly run out of gas, but you won’t get closer to the shore. Option C is Wrong as well! You don’t know where
the current will take you. It might be someplace dangerous (like sharp rocks or a waterfall…and
believe me, you don’t want that!) Choose B! You just need to ride the current and gradually
approach the shore at a slight angle. A fisherman was coming back from a river, deep in the forest.
Suddenly he noticed a strange hut. He decided to check it out. When he went in, the door
slammed behind him! What a surprise, right?! He heard a voice from somewhere above: “You
can see 3 metal doors in front of you. You can only escape through one. They all open
easily without a key, you just have to push a little. But not every door is safe”. The
first is smeared with acid, which corrodes everything except metal. The second is red-hot,
you’ll burn your hand right off. The third is electrified. Which door should our fisherman
choose? Your 12 seconds start now. Of course the third door. Look, he’s wearing
rubber boots. Remember your 8th grade science teacher: Rubber doesn’t conduct electricity.
All he has to do is push the door with his foot. Voila, sweet freedom!
Driving misadventure. Your car veers off a bridge, right into the
water. It starts to sink. What should you do first? A: call 911 immediately. B: unfasten
the seat belt. C: lower or break your car window. You have 12 seconds to make the right
choice! Option A is wrong! Cars sink quite fast. Don’t
waste precious time on a call, you’ll have no time to get out of the car while it’s
still on the surface. And don’t even think about option C! If your seat belt’s on,
you won’t be able to get out of the car. So, first things first, option B: unfasten
your seat belt Then you can lower the window. Now, swim as fast as you can! Your best friend was bitten by a poisonous
snake! Oh no! What will you do? Option A: suck out the poison. Option B: calm him down
and tell him not to move his leg. Option C: apply a tourniquet Your 12 seconds start now!
Think carefully… your BFF needs you. Option A is completely wrong. If the wound
has poison in it and you suck it out, now the poison’s in your body (You could accidentally
swallow it!). Option C is only used to stop bleeding. If you apply it on a bite, the poison
will just concentrate in the leg! You don’t want that to happen (you might have to amputate
it!). The right answer is to calm your BFF down and ask him not to move his leg. It’ll
slow the poison down. Oh, and call the ambulance as soon as you can! You were walking through the woods, having
fun, enjoying your walk. Suddenly you fell through the ground and lost consciousness.
When you woke up, you looked around and realized that you were in a cave with three doors.
On each door you could see a note, telling you what’s behind the door. You can’t
open the door to peek, poisonous gas would be released into the cave. So, you have to
choose by reading the notes! The notes say: Behind the first door is a hungry lion. Behind
the second door are hungry hyenas from The Lion King. Behind the third door are hundreds
of poisonous scorpions. Which door should you choose? You have 12 second to make this
hard choice! Obviously you have to choose the second door!
Hungry hyenas from a cartoon. Get it? They’re not real, just fictional characters. Continue
on your walk, but watch your step next time! Princess Instagram woke up to find herself imprisoned in a castle! The only window was
very high up. She wouldn’t survive the fall if she tried to jump out. She can see a tree
right by the window, but its branches are too flimsy, they can’t hold her weight.
She turns around and suddenly notices 3 doors in front of her. Behind each, as you probably
guessed, is a life threatening danger: Behind the first one is raging fire.
Behind the second is a huge number of poisonous snakes. Behind the third is a dark cave filled
with traps for animals. How can she get out? You have 12 seconds to come up with the plan. You don’t have to be a genius to find the answer! All you need to do is break off a
branch from a tree, light a fire from the first door, and then go into the cave, you’ll
be able to see where you’re going. Easy! Michael loves his job! Last year he went to Egypt to find a scroll in an ancient pyramid.
He wandered the labyrinths of the pyramid for a long time. Finally, he stumbled upon
the right door. But it’s locked shut. How can he open it? There’s got to be a lever
near the door, right? Michael looked around, but there was nothing. Only some weird characters
scratched on the wall. He can’t go back without the scroll, His boss would be furious!
Help him find a way to open the door! Your 12 seconds start now! A hint: reading enlightens! Look on the wall and you’ll notice that regular letters are encrypted on the wall! The statue is the lever that opens the door! So, how many riddles did you solve? If you
solved at least five, good for you! You’re ready for any adventure! Less than five? Just
make sure you’ve got your phone on you, no matter where you are. Calling 911 is your
best option! By the way, did you notice there was another right answer for the 5th riddle.
