 I'll Start off with a weak riddle, ifya got better ones, post em :3
Bob is a bus driver. Today on his route, he picked up 3 people on his first stop, 1 asian man, 1 black man, and 1 white man. on his second stop, he picked up another 3 pepole, 1 asian woman 1 black woman and 1 white woman. on his third stop he picked up 30 mexicans. 15 men and 15 woman and all had a mustache. Now, what is the bus drivers name?
ps. it'll probably be less obvious if it wasnt written

 Heres a mathematical riddle :3 see how long it takes you to solve this equation. be honest .
(ab^2)^0 (972) (10^3 4) (84x6)^5= ?
key (incase theres a few kids who wanna try)
(2)(2)=2x2 ^=to the power of remeber the order of operations
Mathematical Riddle 2

Regardless of what a or b is, since it's being being put to the 0 power, the answer will be 1. 972 = 0 10^3 = 10004 = 996 (84x6)^5 996 (824)^5 996(16)^5 996(1048576) 1044381696 Which brings the current equation to this considering all the parentheses have been solved 1(0)(1044381696) = Zero multiplied by anything is 0, therefore, the answer is zero. Am I right?

I'll let somebody answer this one, I feel like a jerk answering so much that was thrown at me already. Here's one of my own, have fun with your headache: You have a piece of cheese, which can only be cut by a knife. What is the fewest amount of times you can cut into the cheese to divide it into 8 pieces?

 you're right piko, but if you just look at it and saw that 972= 0 and its all multiplication, youd realize the answer is zero, didnt even have to do any work

dont you just take 3 match sticks to make one triangle and place the other 3 in an upside down and right ontop to make a somewhat star shape? the outer triangles plus the inside triangle makes 4 triangles?

3 cuts 1st cut vertically in half making 2 pieces 2nd cut horizontally in to 4 pieces then slice under the 4 pieces to make 8?

I'm gonna make a stupid guess~ Uh... since you have a piece of cheese that means you already have one slice? Then.. you cut it into a half? Then cut each half in half? Then you cut those halves to equal eight slices? just guessing :C

 Sorry Little Sis, Aniki pretty much said the same thing you just did, which isn't the right answer.

 XD it might be a good idea to post the answer if noone can answer within a week, itd be rude to post another riddle before one is solved first

True, in that case, since it's been a day over a week, here's the answer. The riddle never stated the shape of the cheese, so imagine this as one long strand of cheese. We can fold it 4 times, and we can do this because "only a knife can cut it." Normally cheese would break when being folded, but this is our magical strand of cheese. After folding it, 1 cut down the center, and we have 8 pieces of cheese. Therefore, the minimum amount of cuts that can be made is 1.
