  • A Riddle #2

    Another (possibly more difficult) riddle that I've written.

    As small as a thumb nail
    But weighs more than a ton
    It shines with a light, pale
    Though it gives off none

    I love it. The Moon!

    Here's one for you -

    I'm like a Cyclops!
    I am born and begin in a hurry
    At the center am I
    I grow old with a cane
    And then I die.

      I'm not really sure but the best i can think of is a daisy/flower. Pushing up from the earth with a single flower like an eye, growing fast then starts to wither and droops like a cane and then dies.

        I'm not sure if mine was a good riddle... Anyway this was my thought process:
        The answer is Hurricane!
        It has only one eye; Begins with a "Hurry" (sorta), in the center is an "i", and ends with a "cane." And then the word is over (it dies).
        I guess the tricky thing about it is that I'm describing the literal word as well as the object (the eye).

          No it was good and makes sense once you explain it

        Now that's what I call smart, Mate.

          Lol Mate!

          It's alright. ":3" Is an anime cat face either meaning UNRESPONSIVE or "Heh-Heh-I'm Being Cute)
          .3. Is either a kissy-face or, in my case, a "derp" face. I mean, c'mon! How can you not know that?!
          Anyways, I use these even if they're out of topic. DERE SOW CWUTE.

        Ok, given the interest in this thread I wrote another
        Hopefully a bit harder...

        I can be found in land, air, and sea
        Not in night, but in day will you always find me.
        I'm long as a snake, but short as an ant.
        I'm a part of every mineral, animal, plant.
        I come before all; I am first of my kind
        Though I'm never in front, within or behind.
        What am I?

            Correct. I started writing it yesterday and it probably wasn't the best timing to follow yours since it also used parts of the answer the riddle

            Jiynx - Ah the derp face! Yes, I do know what btw means, and I plan on using both of the ones you taught me in text messages to my poor, unsuspecting peers.
            BioJ - I agree; I was kind of on the alert for that type of trickery.

          BioJ - One more from me:

          Madame, pour some tea, we’ll need Cinnamon, apples and pastry,
          (Also, could you bring that Greek dessert? I forget what it’s called!)
          Sir, come with friends, bring wine, and I will be the relationship
          Between your group and madame’s first slice,
          Madame: You go on forever, never any clear meaning or rhyme!
          Sir: Forgive me, but there really is a point to these lines!
          I am the unfathomable resolution between the Sir with his friends
          Or we could say the Sir with Madame, who is pretending to be his uncle.
          And (if you aren't sure) cast the die,
          I matter.
          So what the $%&! am I?

              Mate, I've been stumped on this one all day and the only 'weak' guess i can think of is drunkenness

              ...or perhaps luck

                April Fools - There is no answer! Lol. Joke. I'm not that cruel, but this riddle kinda seems more like a guess what Mate is thinking.
                The answer is the greek letter Pi or the ratio between the Circumference (Sir - come (with) - friends) of a circle and its diameter (die - I - matter, which doesn't work as well).
                Madame is making a pie - Cinnamon, pastry, apples. Her first cut of the pie is the diameter (assuming she would cut the pie straight across). Greek dessert may throw you off because you want to think of Baklava; but it's also a clue to Pi. Although Pi goes on forever without any determinable pattern, it is just a point on a line. If you take Sir with uncle (removing the un- ( the negative suffix of uncle) since Madame is only pretending) yields "Sir-cle."
                I don't know if this was solvable BioJ. Reading it now, I seemed to have had a Mad Hatter tea party in my mind.

                  OMG, Mad Hatter was EXACTLY what I was thinking
                  as I was reading your recent post. I eat baklava every single day.
                  And anaar.

                  WHOOP WHOOP.

                    My first guess for madame was actually apple pie, but nothing else made sense and the thinks she's her uncle completely baffled me. I understand your thought process, but i would never have guessed what the #@$! It was. Lol

                      Ok, I worked on this one today while puzzling over yours. I'm trying to make them more difficult, but if it is two hard there are a couple extra lines i can add.

                      Two holes, under three holes, under four holes, under one
                      Two holes rest upon the ground; one hole blocks out the sun
                      Four holes often colored white, while three holes are often blue
                      One hole, over four holes, over three holes, over two.
                      One hole over four holes, and two holes under three.
                      Three holes in a triangle, and four holes form a T.
                      If three holes go a'swimming then the rest wait on the shore.
                      Three holes wet, and one hole, next to two holes, next to four.

                        Pancakes. Lol. You got me BioJ. And if you were a cruel person, then you would make me pay heavily for the answer. And I would pay it.

                        Well, I'm not a cruel person. The answer is a set of clothing. Two holes = pair of shoes/socks; three holes = shorts/pants; four holes = shirt; one hole = hat

                        Omg. Well my hat's off to you BioJ. I had very briefly considered a shirt... but that riddle took my mind to some far, strange places.
