• I work at a restaraunt and one of my customers last night kept giving me riddles to figure out. I didn't get any of them so I want to see if you guys can get any.

    1. What is bigger than god....meaner than the devil...the rich don't need it....and the poor have it?

    2. A maker makes it but doesn't need it.....a buyer buys it but doesn't use it.... a user uses it but doesn't know it?

    If you have any good ones post them up.
  • Mike
    what is wrong with you... these are easy

    the answer to the first one is Nothing

    the second is a coffin or burial casket

    another easy one just to get the ball rolling -

    What is broken the minute you say it?
  • I know that one, its silence.

    Here is another one:

    A little boy named John went to his parents and told them he wanted to shoot people and blow them up. His parents were proud of his career choice. What does he do?

    Keep in mind his parents aren't violent people.
  • ok, im a bit iffy with riddles, i either get them straight away or can never get them and dont understand them even when told the answer.

    sooo...I have like two possible answers to this one.

    The first one (due to this website and what were about) being, a games tester/creator (something like that) who would specialise in just shooting games, be they FPS or Third Person Shooters.

    The other (more likely answer) is he wants to join the Army and protect his country and get all the "bad men" in the world etc...

    If im wrong with BOTH of those then i give up now :(
  • The first guess is a good one, but it isn't right. The second one isn't right. Keep trying though!!

    Like I said, if none of those were right then I give up, leave it to someone else.
    Riddles are enigmatic...give me an easy to intermediate level Sudoku Puzzle any day and I'll just go away and complete that instead :eek:
  • Is it possible that the kid wanted to be a doctor Mike?
  • Nope

    I don't think I'd go to a doctor if he said he was going to shoot and blow me up, lol.
  • He was going to be a photographer?
  • Actually Rory that's possible. Shoot photos and then blow them up (enlarge them).
    Great guess regardless of whether it's right or not :o
  • Bingo, Rory :59:

    The floor is yours
  • Cheers Mike.

    Try this one for size

    My life can be measured in hours, I serve by being devoured. Thin, I am quick, Fat, I am slow, Wind is my foe. What am I?
  • Im going to make a wild guess and go for air
  • Mike, I am sorry to say but you are peeing in the wind with that answer.

    You should seek further enlightenment ;)
  • Hmm, this is a hard one. I am thinking about something along the lines of sunlight or shadows. I don't see how wind would be a foe to either of those though.
  • I'm not gonna answer this cus this is a very rare visit and I don't know when I will return. But I will sit in the background and hum inspirational tunes to intensify the enigmatict setting in this thread.

    :mad:...goodbye englands rose, may you ever grow in our hearts...

    Off topic I know, but er Mag, who are you referring to with that England Rose thing? You see I would've said Diana, but I'm not sure. :confused:
  • nice one Magnus. You most certaintly would be right, should you have answered the question outright. ;)
  • It looks like no one is going to answer this so I will come clean and tell you.

    The answer was a candle - Magnus' reference was to the song Candle in the Wind.

    If someone would like to post another riddle maybe we can kickstart this thread again. :p
  • OK, so I'm gonna post one just for the heck of it. This is a really easy one so it won't be long before someone gets it.
    So here it is:

    I walk on four legs in the morning, two legs in the afternoon, and three legs in the evening.

    What am I?

    As I stated already, this one is VERY simple, so I expect this to go within the next ooh I'll give it until midnight here which is six and a half hours time.

    Jay

    Edit: Forgot to mention...
    In order to make this slightly harder, I want an explanation of each of the three stages as well as what the thing is. In other words how that thing can possibly differ during the three stages mentioned.
  • well its only like 15 minutes until midnight and STILL nobody has even attempted this.

    It's not hard honest, I thought it would've gone a couple of hours ago, but ah well *shrug*

    Come on guys and girls... :)

    By the way, ANYONE can answer, not just staff members. This topic, and all others you can see on this site, is open to everybody :)

    Jay
  • Is it me after a night on the vino??
  • Our survey says.. nuh uh

    Nope, try again, but you were kind of close when you said YOU, but not JUST you, that's all you're getting from me.

    Come on people, this should've been solved like years ago :eek:
  • Jay

    Would
    4 legs be a crawling child
    2 legs be a walking adult
    3 legs be a old person with a walking cane?

    Maybe someone esle can answer this as I am not the man for the job....
  • Our survey says...ding ding ding ding ding ding ding ding

    Yes, very clever Rory. God, it took you long enough.
    I mean, how difficult was that? It's one of the better known riddles that I thought everybody would've known.

    The stage, as they say, is yours Rory...
    Do us staff members proud :)
