Granted Ki-BRT being the first to get the riddle correct, she should be the one who make the riddle. But I came up with a riddle and being Christmas just take this as a lame gift.

Scenario: You and another person are sitting next to each other at a bar that literally serves anything liquid, from water to urine to liquid oxygen you get the idea. The person next to you is of average intelligence and education, for one reason or another that person pisses you of immensely and you want to find a way to kill him/her without breaking any law, in other words you have to trick the fellow into accidentally killing himself/herself. And by ordering a certain substance can help you set up the trap, although it does not guarantee success, so what is that particular substance and how does the trap work?

[spoiler=A little hint]Haibara, an accomplished chemist would definitely not fall for this trap. Professor Agasa will probably appreciate the principle of the trap[/spoiler]

[spoiler]My first thought was liquid nitrogen although I fail to see how Agasa would appreciate the idea... Gah! I know this one. I got to!

We need a pun. A drink that sounds like a cocktail or something but when order is somehting lethal... Agasa would appreciate the play of words...

Silver Bullet? It's a name of a cocktail but if this is a bar that serves anything liquid, this could actually be mercury which is poisonous...[/spoiler]

I didn't get this last one, but I do have a riddle if anyone wants to try.

Once we were closer, the ground and I
Though here I am, stretching up into the sky
Lighting the way for the stars to come down
Soon, I'm afraid, I will shrivel and brown.
One more time.

my question may possibly have more than one answer, but miyano_shiho's answer is the one I have in mind. Look at the hint, 'Professor Agasa will probably appreciate the principle of the trap' means it is a pun and Agasa likes puns, 'Haibara, an accomplished chemist would definitely not fall for this trap' means the pun in related to chemistry, in other words a chemistry pun.

As for Ki-RBT's riddle, I have no idea...yet

I might as well post a new riddle to get this topic more active:
Two good friends are in a bar. One of them is curious about the ages of the other man's daughters. He gives two hints:
1. The product of their ages is 72
2. The sum of their ages is the house number across the street
With just these two hints, the first man claims it's impossible to solve. Then the other man gives one last hint: "The eldest daughter loves chocolate".
With that third hint, the first man figured out the daughter's ages immediately. What are their ages?

[spoiler]
The product of their ages is 72

This is obvious.

The sum of their ages is the house number across the street

We don't know what that number is. But they do.

With just these two hints [...] it's impossible to solve.

So there are more possible solutions at this point.

We have to find a sum that occurs more than once.

If he had two daughters:
72+1=73
36+2=38
18+4=22
12+6=18
9+8=17

If he had three daughters:
72+1+1=74
36+2+1=39
24+3+1=28
18+4+1=23
18+2+2=22
12+6+1=19
12+3+2=17
9+8+1=18
9+4+2=15
8+3+3=14
6+6+2=14

6+4+3=13

The eldest daughter loves chocolate

So there is one daughter who is older than the others.

They are 8, 3 and 3 years old.

(This is not a complete solution. There could be more than three daughters.)[/spoiler]

Here's a new one:

I have 6 dice. I throw all of them at once 10 times and note the resulting numbers. I follow a specific rule to get a single-digit number from them. From the 10 throws and the number that I get following that rule, can you figure out what the rule is?

2-3-4-6-6-6 = 2
1-1-2-3-6-6 = 2
1-5-6-6-6-6 = 4
2-2-3-4-4-6 = 2
1-2-2-5-6-6 = 4
1-1-2-2-4-4 = 0
1-2-2-2-3-4 = 2
1-1-2-4-5-5 = 8
1-2-2-2-4-4 = 0
1-3-3-4-6-6 = 4

EDIT: For those that want to know, I can either:
1. post the name of this riddle (it's a clue)
or
2. post more throws and results in this topic to help anyone who has trouble figuring it out

If you want me to do one of these, PM me.

EDIT 2: Decided to add a murder riddle:
The police are called in to investigate a murder. According to witnesses, a figure in a hood held a pistol aimed at someone's back. He fired, injuring the man, who writes something in a notebook he has, before bleeding to death. The killer looks in it and puts it back next to the corpse, thinking there is no significance to the numbers he wrote:
35-41-22-139-41-30

Just then, three acquaintances of the victim walk by, where they're told of what happened. As it turns out, none of them have a solid alibi, but each of them has a motive. Their names and kanji:

1. Satai Sakaki (下大 阪引)
2. Hashimoto Miyako (赱東 京)
3. Ishii Makoto (石伊 豆功)

After looking at the names and numbers, one of the officers realizes the numbers are a dying message pointing to one of those three being the culprit. Who is it?

For those who have given my murder riddle a try, but are stumped, I decided to give a hint. This is an image from one of the anime episodes. Please note that this may make it really easy. Image
