Beating pains it not...

Posted:I didnt cheat... I just thought about it... fire breaths, dances and lives. Someone on here has a thing like that in their siggy, "Fire is alive, it lives and breaths, but we control it, and dance with fire" thats what gave it away.

Must warn you... this one is really stupid, and doesnt make much sense.

Posted:Burning Brain, i have one thats similar to that.. dont know if its on here yet, its not on this page at least.

What has a mouth but cannot talk,
can run but cannot walk,
has a bed but never sleeps,
has emotions but never weeps?

(not sure if the last line is correct, but the weeping part is.. and if its already on here then you may kick me.)

Posted:This is more of a geometry related question rather than a riddle, but I think its kinda cool:

ABG is a right-angled triangle

C and E are points along the line AG
D and F are points along the line BG

AB = BC = CD = DE = EF = FG

You have to work out the shape of the triangle...
and the angle of AGB (the inside corner at G).

is it a right-angled triangle? (as my matchsticks suggest) however as for the angle, I dont know.

Yup, sort of. There's a couple answers to this. You got one of them. I think the full answer was:

"Poe wrote on both, they both produce a few flat notes and both are almost never backwards"
("raven" backwards = "nevar" = almost "never")
