I must admit, these are harder than I thought. Good job coming up with these riddles. But I'm afraid I don't have another answer.

1. He was playing monopoly and didn't have enough money to pay on the space he landed.
2. His parachute didn't open, so he died on impact in the field.
3. March?

1.) He owns a gas station lol
2.) Dies of heart attack.

#1 I'm guessing the first one is that the man is playing Monopoly. No other answer besides that makes sense.
#2 The second one could be that he jumped from a plane - the box being the unopened parachute.
#3 As for the third, I'm not really sure. I bet this one was the easiest of the three and I'm still stuck on it.

I think you cheated or have already heard it.

Me Against The World

Well, I read everyone elses perception and White Shadow seems like he/she had the firt 2 correct and the last one seems to be the stumper for everyone.

I'm presuming if no one gets it you will tell us, right? I hate not knowing things.

Anyways, my best guess is the other daughter is named December, just because it's the last month. I don't really know, it's really hard.

I love these types of things that stump people though, they're extrememly entertaining. I have a tendency to keep myself awake at night thinking about them though. XD

Cool riddles!

Lids?

ok so yeah what everyone else is saying about 1 with the whole monopaly thing and 2 ive heard so its definetely the parachute, three is this wild idea i have being that its April, May, June. why the hell not unless its something really tricky like April may....something like a sentence.

1)His car ran out of fuel, while on travel, has no cash on him, and there is no gas station in sight, but he has credit cards, so he decides to roll into the nearest hotel to rest, then when he goes to check into the hotel using his credit card, he finds out someone has stolen his identity...therefore he is bankrupt
2)He was a very old man, with no means of transportation, and he was delivering a package in a hurry, and spontaneously died of a heart attack...
3)My guess would be March, since March, April, and May all fall into the Spring season, and the woman might be Mother Nature(lol)...she categorized

As stated earlier the answer to 1 and 2 are hes playing monopoly and a parachutist whose parachute didn't open.

# 1 had me stumped until i heard Dane cook on youtube start his sketch about monopoly.

I already heard number 2 but instead of a package it was a bag.

Number 3 however has me stumped. When you think about it all riddles tell you the answer but keep it hidden or require thinking outside the box(ie the johnny's mom has 3 kids one or another one that is something like determine which light switch controls each one and you can only go check once). You said they were not all girls (indirectly and i quote "Who's to say the other child is a girl?") but when you think of the symbolic representation of earth it's a mother (mother earth).But in all likely hood that would likely mean 12 (last child's name would be December) one child for each month but there are 9 more then the the amount you said(3). Another thing strange is that in riddle #3 there is no indication that the third would be a male but there is also nothing to disprove it.April,may,june would be a logical conclusion but you have stated june is wrong(see above). Since june is wrong and you said that they weren't all female (again see above)this leads me to think that the name would be a a rough male equivalent in sound. John would be a obvious candidate but there was also a old boys name in 19th century Junius or should i also mention saint Juniper(who was a male).In todays day and age there is no guy named Juniper or Junius (at least none that a i know of but highly unlikeliy that somebody would name a person as such) so in all likely hood for question 3 i say John

First two are done already and my guess for number 3 is May. The "others" name is May... Stretching a little bit but thats my best guess since you never said yes or no to the December guess.
