I seem to remember a thread for jokes so i opened one for riddles.

so:
"What's greater than God, more evil than the Devil, the rich want it, the poor have it, and if you eat it you die?"

answer:
"Nothing. Nothing is greater than God, nothing is more evil than the Devil, the rich want nothing, the poor have nothing, and if you eat nothing you die"

"There are three words in the English language that end in -GRY. Two are HUNGRY and ANGRY. The third one everyone uses every day and knows what it stands for. If you listened carefully, I already told you what the word is. What is the third word?"
Think of words ending in -GRY. Angry and hungry are two of them. There are only three words in the English language. What is the third word? The word is something that everyone uses every day. If you have listened carefully, I have already told you what it is."

interesting thread...
Question:
In a room, there is a table. At the table there are 4 seats. 3 of the seats are empty. In the 4th seat is a man. This man is dead. The lights of this room are on. Around the dead man are 53 bicycles. How did the man die?
Answer: He cheated in a game of poker. The term "bicycles" refers to Bicycle playing cards, of which, there are 52 in a deck. The man cheated by using a 53th card. The players who were in the other 3 seats fled after one of them killed the cheater.

Im not good at explaining things but I'll do my best.
The first number is a one so there's one 1
The second number should be 1 1 since there's one 1. you use both the numeral and the number.
The third is 2 1 because there's two 1 on the second line.
And at the fourth to fifth, you only count numbers in a row.
So:
1(4th line) makes 1 1
2(4th line) makes 1 2
11(4th line) makes 2 1
And for my number,
111(5th line) makes 3 1
22(5th line) makes 2 2
1(5th line) makes 1 1

I'm sure if I were to guess Sasura's I'd come up with a logical answer that would be wrong, tis in front of my eyes, I can feel it! Very sneaksy and tricksy. Well, speaking of which. Sneaksy and tricksy I mean. Here is my favorite of Bilbo Bagins.


"Cannot be seen, cannot be felt.
Cannot be heard, cannot be smelt.
It lies behind stars and under hills,
And empty holes it fills.
It comes first and follows after,
Ends life and kills laughter."

(A hint would be nice...^.^;)

Sasura
11-22-2005, 04:48 PM

Think of words ending in -GRY. Angry and hungry are two of them. There are only three words in the English language. What is the third word? The word is something that everyone uses every day. If you have listened carefully, I have already told you what it is."

heres one

A man wanted to enter an exclusive club but did not know the password that was required. He waited by the door and listened. A club member knocked on the door and the doorman said, "twelve." The member replied, "six " and was let in. A second member came to the door and the doorman said, "six." The member replied, "three" and was let in. The man thought he had heard enough and walked up to the door. The doorman said ,"ten" and the man replied, "five." But he was not let in.

What should have he said?

*unshed~tears*

It roars like thunder,
And rises higher,
While breathing fire,
This wingless wonder.

If it leaves its cave,
Drags us in its tail,
Over hill and dale,
Then you must be brave.

Early morning flight,
Silently it flies,
Slowly in the skies.
Hides before the night.

My kingdom at least,
To the brave young knight,
If you name it right.
What is this huge beast?

Not in high place."
