Two camels were facing in opposite directions. One was facing due East and one was facing due West. They were in the desert so there was no reflection. How can they manage to see each other without walking around or turning around or moving their heads?

Haha Iíve heard this one! :) They were facing each other, but still this counts as opposite directions.

A man was found hanging in his completely empty room with a puddle of water under his feet. How could he have hung himself if there was nothing in the room that he couldíve stood on to place the noose?

State moderators are not allowed to answer this as they have already seen it before.

In a fictional world, a warlock kidnapped three lovely ladies. He turned all of them into identical plants to put in his castle's garden. Unfortunately, the warlock was also the landlord over the region.
Couple hours later, the husband of one of the women found out about this happening. He offered up everything to have the opportunity to see his wife again, regardless of the fact she had become a plant. All that the warlock gave in return was the opportunity to spend a night with his wife.
So the husband accepted the offer and took his wife with him. Now having no property, he spent the night in a mildly deep cave with her. When the sun rose, as promised he returned his wife to the warlock.
An hour later, when the warlock had left the castle, he snuck into the garden. There, he saw the three identical plants, and was unsure as to which was actually his wife. But when he looked close enough, he then found out and fled the land with her.

Q: How?
