A friend of mine sent me this riddle and I am stumped:

People say you can tell nothing from my face.
I sound like I am useful in a fire.
I have connections to Royalty
People get undressed around me

If you can help me with the answer to that one, try this one:

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

It was a day for screaming at inanimate objects.

What this calls for is a special mix of psychology and extreme violence...

The dead guy in the room - yep the block of ice is the answer.

McAlpine's:
No legs have I to dance,
No lungs have I to breathe,
No life have I to live or die
And yet I do all three. What am I?

could be wind?

The list:
weightless means "neutral bouancy so how can adding it to something make it lighter??
2 apples from 7 - you have 2 - the other 5 are in front of you biggrin
twins have to be from the same egg, so two babies born one after each other but from 2 seperate eggs would answer that one.
The snail - 28 days if it doesn't die from not eating anything because he's climbing a stupid wall with no food on it!

I have several large jars of the stuff. I actually like it... a little. And don't tell anyone I admitted to it.

The first one was "Sleep"

The second one was "Fire"

Could it be that the toothpicks were set in the shape of a "9" ? Or is that just silly? ^^ Maybe they actually spell out "Nine" ?



I know the answer to the "9 letter English Word" riddle... but only because I was told it a few days ago.

I won't spoil it. ubbloco



Are you good at math? Complete the last two in this sequence: 1=3, 2=3, 3=5, 4=4, 5=4, 6=3, 7=5, 8=5, 9=4, 10=3, 11=?, 12=?

the english word it startling and the toothpick one is that the toothpicks are arranged to make the word "NINE" using 11 toothpicks...(12-1=11)

A woman gave birth to two sons who were born on the same hour of the same day of the same year but were not twins. How is this possible?
it was because they were triplets.

Hope this one hasn't been done already...and it's an easy one...but it's not bad...

Often we are covered with wisdom and wit,
and oft with a cloth where the dinner guests sit;
In beauty around you and over your head,
we are countless, though numbered,
when bound to be read.

How about something a little different...more of a puzzle...

Change these words into one word: Nine Thumps
