I used to post this kind of thing fairly regularly much to the annoyance of other members it should be said because I invariable messed it up.

But undaunted I thought it would give it another go. Can you solve these riddles

Please do not post your guesses just yet. PM your answers and I will pm you back

How can this be?

How can you add 8 8's to make 1000?

I am reliably and gratefully informed that the "crime" in number 8 is in fact no longer a crime
