    Riddlers Corner

    Post by ViralEnsign_ on Tue Nov 13, 2012 4:31 am

    Recently I have become fascinated with odd riddles and questions and I often puzzle away at them in my head from time to time as well as posing them to people I know.

    PM me your answers or summat like that. AND FOR THE LOVE OF GWYN POST YOUR OWN!

    Oh and for those of you who know where the first few riddles come from please spoil it for the others.

    So.....

    Beginner Level Riddles

    " When is a Door not a Door?"

    " What lies in a bed, then stands in a bed/ is white, then red/ The Plumper it gets/ the more the old woman likes it"

    "There is a thing that nothing is, and yet it has a name. Its sometimes tall and sometimes short, joins our talks, joins our sport, and plays at every game."

    "What can run but never talks, Has a mouth but never talks, has a bed but never sleeps, has a head but never weeps?"

    "Out of the eater came forth meat, and out of the strong came forth sweetness."

    "At night they come without being fetched,
    And by day they are lost without being stolen
    ."
    "I never was, am always to be,
    No one ever saw me, nor ever will
    And yet I am the confidence of all
    To live and breathe on this terrestrial ball.
    "

    "Runs over fields and woods all day
    Under the bed at night sits not alone,
    With long tongue hanging out,
    A-waiting for a bone.
    "
    Hint: It's something very close to you.

    "The beginning of eternity
    The end of time and space
    The beginning of every end,
    And the end of every place
    ."

    "There was a green house.
    Inside the green house there was a white house
    Inside the white house there was a red house.
    Inside the red house there were lots of babies
    ."

    And for some fun

    "What is the difference between an Alley Cat and a Perfect Sentence?"

    "A box without hinges, a key or a lid, yet inside a Golden Treasure is hid."

    "Thirty White Horses on a red hill, first the champ, then they stamp, then they stand still"

    This is one of the more challenging ones I hope....

    The word has seven letters. It preceded God, it is greater than God, is more evil than the devil, poor people have it, rich people need it and if you eat it, you will die. What is it?

    Yeah I've seen a couple before too. Well here's some of my own.

    What goes on 4 legs in the morning, 2 in the afternoon and 3 in the evening?

    Only one colour but not one size
    Stuck at the bottom, yet easily flies
    Present in sun, but not in rain
    Doing no harm and feeling no pain

    Round like an apple and deep like a cup,
    yet all the king's horses can't pull it up.

    Long legs, bandy thighs
    A little head and no eyes.

    On my way to St Ives I met a man with 7 wives,
    Each wife has 7 sacks,
    Each sack had 7 cats,
    Each cat had 7 frogs,
    Each frog had 7 fleas.
    Fleas, Frogs, Cats, Sacks and wives, how many were going to St Ives?

    Some of these might sound familiar. Well you might have the same book as me winking

    Dead on the field lie ten soldiers in white, felled by three eyes, black as night. What happened?

    Hands she has but does not hold, teeth she has but does not bite, feet she has but they are cold, eyes she has but without sight. Who is she?

    What has six faces, But does not wear makeup. It also has twenty-one eyes, But cannot see?

    The strangest creature you'll ever find: Two eyes in front and many many more behind.

    I have freedom from hate, but not from lies. I'm usually seen through clouded eyes. I come unexpected, though you wait for me all your life. I can't be brought yet some people try. What am i?

    I have one I made up.... its not good but please tell me if you liked it. And Dough you had the first one right but not the last. Though Death could be a possible answer.

    Only growing in the light,

    never sleeping in the night.

    Up and also down,

    resplendent with a verdant crown.

    A thousand toes bite deep,

    and below our feet do creep.

    Silent in life and death,

    and never do we see its breath.

    At its height one can see all around,

    at its base you are far underground.

    What is it?

    Some more of my own from the same book

    What force and strength cannot get through,
    I with a gentle touch can do,
    And many in the street would stand,
    Were I not a friend at hand

    Old mother twitcher had one eye
    and a long tail that she let fly.
    And every time she went through a gap
    She left a bit of her tail in the trap.

    A hill-full, a hole-full
    you cannot catch a bowl-full

    Black within and red withouyt
    With 4 corners round about

    Little nancy ettucoat
    in a white petticoat
    and a red rose
    The longer she stands,
    the shorter she grows

    And thats all my book has so Im out.

    I got one or two but can't post the answers so you'll have to take my word for it. Here's one of mine.

    Also if you want to post the answer use a combination of the hidden and spoiler tags so only people who have posted in the thread and want to see the answer can.

    Ah clever I shall do that.

    What has roots as nobody sees,
    Is taller than trees
    Up, up it goes,
    And yet never grows?

    I once was prosperous in wealth, only second to yellow. You form me into coin, decorate, and fashion, and I was the popular one of night. yet I have diminished from second in terms of valuable currency. What am I?

    :stone-orange: :stone-orange: :stone-orange:

    I consume all that enter me, except the opposite that is also lethal to be around. Although it is known to be solid an noncorrosive, I am more so, eating all that has a base too small. What am I?

    :stone-orange: :stone-orange: :stone-orange:

    My wings are brown; my head is pale. I give out puzzles, and failure leads to death for either or. What am I?

    :stone-orange: :stone-orange: :stone-orange:

    The antelope is as close as the goat; I am near magestic and rare, and seen as a creature of the shield. However uncommon in knowledge I am, I am near vale in two accounts to record. What am I?

    :stone-orange: :stone-orange: :stone-orange:

    I am known to be what flows in all. At first, the air breathed in was thought as source of life. Yet, here I stand, still a structure for all that flows like me. What am I?
