Yes, the latest of my series. I assume that the 'Corrupt-A-Wish' became a little violent when I wasn't here, therefore being deleted.

SO... Rules (yay):

1). No vulgar comments... please restrain yourself.

That's all I can think of for now...

But here's the game...

"Riddle": a question or statement so framed as to exercise one's ingenuity in answering it or discovering its meaning; conundrum.

Here is how the game is played: a member will create a riddle, and another member will attempt to decode it. If that member fails, then another member will try. If he/she succeeds, he/she will create his/her own riddle...

And so on...

So, let us begin:

"Duels of good and evil... a fighter of good am I... revealed beside watched words... King of the black night sky... what am I?"

This should keep you busy for a while...

If I remember this one correctly, this riddle is intended to be written in such a way as to provide the answer within the arrangement of the words themselves. If I was shown this riddle correctly, and if my memory has done me justice, the answer is "Dark":

Duels of good and evil...
a fighter of good am I
revealed beside watched words...
king of the black night sky...
Assuming I am correct, I will post the next riddle. If I was not correct, consider this insubmissible:

What question can you never answer "yes" to?
I have lots of these.

Wizard-- You are indeed correct. Sorry it took long for me to reply; time zones.... very different from where you and I are.

Yes, the answer is "Dark". Now, Wizard, your turn!

think This is a hard one. I don't really know But I think the answer to this riddel is so simple that some think to hard on it. So my answer is this:
the question you can't answer "yes" to is this riddle.

Am I right?

Very close Mellifluous. Close enough, even, to be accepted as the appropriate response to the riddle. As for how the riddle is suppose to go, the intended answer (or question, rather) is "are you asleep”. However, "are you dead” is more than adequate, so no reason to hold the show up, good job.

Your turn Mellifluous.

Who ever thought spending the entire hour of english class trying to figure out riddles all those days was going to have a use here at FXhome. Here I thought my teacher was wasting time...It has been quite some time since then, but this I do remember, as well as the one Mellifluous provided. The answer, NickD, is a coffin.

It wasn't my sister, nor my brother, but still was the child of my father and mother. Who was it?

That is correct, good job. That one is an old one, but a good one, perhaps too well known though. As per the rules of this game, it is now your turn to post a riddle.

I look forward to it.

Okay, there is an Arab Sheik with twin sons, but he can only leave his empire to one of them, and he can''t decide to whom, so he comes up with an idea and calls the boys into his throne room.

"Sons, one of you will inherit my kingdom, but I can''t decide who, so you are going to have a race. You will race your camels to [a distant city] for the empire. BUT there is a catch, the person with the slower camel will be the winner. "

The boys are confused, but eager, and go out to the stable, load up their camels and leave to cross the desert wastelands.

After days of wandering around, trying to be slower than each other, they arrive at an oasis. Sitting at the water hole, is an elderly man. They all sit together and begin making dinner. They are all chatting, but the boys are rather downcast, so the man asks them what the problem is. They tell him, he thinks for a bit, then tells them something. They both jump up, get back on the camels, and race off into the distance.

What did he tell them?

Holy Lord... that could be any number of things... er... did he tell the boys that he was a homosexual? No, probably not.

Did he tell the boys that "winner" is is like "loser"? No, no, no...

He told the boys that... uh... heh, is it one of the two stated above?

Logic should take you through the one I posted:

The brothers are obvious depending on their horse getting there last. Therefore, their brother must get there first. So, all they have to do is obtain their brother's horse and ride it there first. The answer?

The old man tells the brothers this:

"Trade horses."

I suppose I will get the ball rolling again. This one will likely take longer than the others to figure out, unless some one is familiar with it. I can always supply a different one, provided no one answers.

This is an unusual day, and so is this paragraph. How quickly can you find out what is so uncommon about it? It looks so ordinary that you may think nothing is odd about it until you match it with most paragraphs this long. If you put your mind to it, and study it, you will find out, but nobody may assist you. Do it without any coaching. Go to work and try your skill at figuring it out.
Good luck.

It's an unusual paragraph, because, of course, the letter E- the most common letter in the entire English language- is not in it.

C'mon, easy stuff!

How about this:

There are three words in the English language that end in "gry"- two of them being "hungry" and "angry". What is the third word in the English language?

A good hint is in white below, highlight to see

Yes. Did you use the hint? wink

While that's solved, here's another (though I'm sure I'm leaving part of it out, but no matter):

What runs but never walks, has a mouth yet never talks, has head but never weeps, has a bed but never sleeps?

If you've read the Hobbit, this is one of Gollum's riddles, I believe.

Would this topic be one of these said places Ben? Heh, easy mistake to make, don't worry about it. To answer it again, the answer is "man". The time of day is a metaphor for the stages of ones life (ie: crawling, walking up right, walking with a cane).

As for the rules of the game, NickD, I believe it is your turn to present a riddle, unless you would prefer not to, of course.

Here's one:

I turn polar bears white
and I will make you cry.
I make guys have to pee
and girls comb their hair.
I make celebrities look stupid
and normal people look like celebrities.
I turn pancakes brown
and make your champane bubble.
If you sqeeze me, I'll pop.
If you look at me, you'll pop.
Can you guess the riddle?

Oh your going to be in trouble for this one... because you haven't actually posted the entire Riddle.

This is one of those riddles that has been floating around forums for years... So depending on where you found or heard it the "most correct" answer will change.


So, Ill begin my little story at the beggining; This riddle is based on a poem called "Time has come" the poem goes like this:
The time has come,
winter is here
and those yellow bears disappear.

The time has past
as man looks back with a sigh
and a tear in his eye.

As time is held
boys cross their legs
but of course the toilet begs

As time marches on
Girls loose their blush
and swap a comb for their brush

As time passes
For those held high
their end is nigh

As time catches up
Everyone is equal
when we get to the final sequel

As time turns
Without it we have flour and water
With it we have breakfast for my daughter

As time revolves
How does one turn water and wine
into something so fine

As time runs out
The more in a minute you try and squeeze
the less you can do with ease.

As time ticks
All the time that has past
man cannot comprehend something so vast.
So a common guess is the answer "Time"

Other common answers are Cold, God, Light, Words, Pressure and Air


However... the flaw remains that you haven’t posted the entire Riddle; This riddle is ment to begin with a note that contains the information that:

97% of Harvard graduates have trouble, but 84% of kindergarten children solve it in under 6 minutes.
This, coupled with the fact the only question asked within the riddle is:
"Can you guess the riddle?"
It leaves the reader with two possibilities, the answer "I don't know" which is the most common answer given by Kindergartners and one of the most UN-common given by Harvard Graduates.

and/or

The name of the riddle.

Depending of where you found/heard this riddle will change the answer you know of... however as far as the well researched person goes... its one of those two... take your pick.

Yeah see, as I said...

This is one of those riddles that begin forum wars... so I figured I’d just say my bit... and leave it at that... if NickD got the riddle from some weird or wacky source and the answer isn’t included in my horribly long post, then his source is probably wrong (which... since he didn’t include the full poem is probably true)

In-fact, I’m gona post this easy one for whoever wants it in the meantime...

If two's company and three's a crowd,
What are four and five?
enjoy.

Thats correct CX3.

A good general rule wiht any riddle, is study what the actual question is... often the rest of the riddle is there to distract you.

Edited: I just thought of a old lession my freind gave me. Math isn't always about numbers. which means this riddle is about somthing elses! cool
Its about the number of letters that spells the word of the number, such as one= 3 letters! 11 and 12 are spelled with six letters so the answer to this problem is 11=6 12=6

That's what I assumed at first. However, this is my answer:

Hubert was hit by a baseball from outside, hit a window, and killed him. Rose, sweating profusely, dies from nerves.

Here goes:

A farmer was going to town with a fox, a goose and a sack of corn. When he came to a stream, he had to cross in a tiny boat, and could only take across one thing at a time. However, if he left the fox alone with the goose, the fox would eat the goose, and if he left the goose alone with the corn, the goose would eat the corn. How does he get them all safely over the stream?

A farmer was going to town with a fox, a goose and a sack of corn. When he came to a stream, he had to cross in a tiny boat, and could only take across one thing at a time. However, if he left the fox alone with the goose, the fox would eat the goose, and if he left the goose alone with the corn, the goose would eat the corn. How does he get them all safely over the stream?
The farmer could take the goose across first, and then return for the fox. He could then bring the fox over to the goose, drop it off, and pick up the goose, then bring it over to the corn, drop the goose off, pick up the corn, and bring it over to the side the fox is on, and drop it off.

All that would be required now is to retrieve the goose from the other side. This riddle is quite old, but I enjoyed figuring it out the first time I heard it, good fun. In an attempt to limit posting, I will provide a riddle in this post.

Dr. John Smith is Dr. Leslie Smith's father. Mrs. John Smith is Dr. Leslie Smith's mother. Dr. Leslie Smith is not Dr. John Smith's son. How is this explained?
This shouldn't be too hard.

First he crosses the stream with the goose. Then he goes back and gets the corn. When the corn is one the other side he takes the goose back to where it first was and brings the fox instead. Then he leaves the fox there and goes back one last time to get the goose.

EDIT: Argh! You beat me Wizard razz

EDIT 2: @Wizard's riddle: Dr. Leslie Smith is Dr. John Smith's daughter?

Actually, they were playing baseball with a glass bat, when a huge block of ice fell out of the sky and crushed them both.

Best shot? An easy one then...

Feathers McGraw is a prisoner at the Hoodoo Prison. It's the most impregnable prison in the country, because of its location - surrounded on all sides by a (to all intents and purposes) bottomless chasm. There is a single bridge to the outside world, and it's quite rickety, so it takes ten minutes to cross. Passes are issued by the warden or the visitor centre, and are biometrically linked to the recipient. There is a new guard in the watchtower which surveys the whole bridge, and he checks it every five minutes. He has a biometric scanner for checking the passes through his sniper scope, and anyone caught trying to cross in either direction without a valid pass will be sent back at gunpoint.

How on earth is Feathers going to escape?

Walk backwards. This way when he is spotted by the guard it will appear as if he is trying to enter and will be forced to go to the entrance.

A man is in a room. The room is completely bare, nothing occupies it except for the man. There are no windows, only a single door in the exact center of one wall. Each wall measures 81/2 feet high and 151/3 feet long. The door, walls, floor and ceiling (for all intensive purposes) are made from an indestructible material. The man escapes from the room. How does he do this.

Re-read the riddle, and as always with riddles remember that you only have to answer the question, All other text thats part of the riddle are just there to distract you.

Read the question, and think about what it means.

If you want a hint, just ask.

OH you all are lazy...

Fine ill do all the thinking...

'Wang' is a chinese name, and an odd name to be in a riddle, a lateral thinker would ponder why... and work on other chinese names and words in the problem.

"Pussy" and "Cat" in chinese is "Mao"

There for :

Why did 'big beard' Wang reguarly shave his friend Mao.

The answer?

(think hard, and keep china in mind)

"Wang" or 'Big Beard Wang' (as he was known by, for his long beard) was the barber of Chairman Mao.

Mao means Cat, Therefor


'big beard' Wang reguarly shave his friend Chairman Mao, because he was his barber.

While we wait for Kingofblades to post here are 3 super easy ones:

1 If you take two apples from three apples, how many do you have?

2 Three large people crowd under a miniscule umbrella, but nobody gets wet. How is this possible?

3 A certain word actually becomes shorter when you add two letters to it. What is the word?
