There are only 3 people.

Grandfather, Father and Son.

Grandfather = Father, Father = Father + son and Son = Son making 2 of each.

Ok. I haven't got time to get any new ones so here's a fairly easy one:

You are outside a completely solid room, the only way for ANYTHING to get in or out is through a solid, opaque door.
Inside the room is a light.
Outside the room are 3 lightswitches.

How can you tell for sure which switch turns on the light, if you're only allowed to enter the room once?

Well i would suppose you switch on the first switch and wait for 10 minutes. Then you switch the first one of again and switch teh second one on. Now you go inside and have a look.
If the light is on its teh second switch, if the light is off and warm it is the first switch otherwise it is the third.

OK here it goes:

In the middle of the desert, there is a dead mans body lying in the sand. He is almost completley naked. Around him the sand is untouched for miles in every direction. Next to him are lying a lot of clothes. more than one person could wear.
Also there is a short match lying just next to his right hand.

What happened?

He was in /v/akistan, and the sand engulfed the remains of the other 8 people as well as eliminating the evidence of the massive battle.

For it is Widdows9000 who is lying in the sand having singlehandedly defeating 8 enemies with his Q1 matchstick

Four cats.

Three can catch 99 in 100 minutes, therefore one more to catch the extra.
