Riddle me this...
« on: October 06, 2009, 03:40:40 PM »
Alright, here are the rules.

Think of an item, may it be natural or unnatural. Make a small description without giving to much away in a question like this.

"I use water, turning it from cold to hot. Relieving pressure when I am conjested. What Am I?" - Jubari in SB

However I got some quick close replys but not exactly what I was looking for so I gave in and told them it was a Steam Engine.

Now what I want you to do, is something like that. We'll try to guess what it is, and if you feel people are far from what your thinking of drop another brief hint. Try to get us closer. =P If we still don't get it, you can give us the answer or keep playing. ^_^

Now lets see what you guys have. If you can beat me to my next riddle that is. =P!

I am made of Iron, in a foreign country to the United States. I have four feet and no arms. I stand attempting to reach for the stars. What and where am I?

*smiles sweetly* I much love solving riddles~ Not terribly good at making them up, however.

So if you'd like, then yes, fire away~

I have the silhouette of a certain famed mouse.  I'm made of two things, but I have three parts.  Myself and friends helped a well known Greek solve a problem with a crown.

Edit:  Try to be specific when you answer.

When I read that I was thinking a Micky Mouse Hat... However I don't see that fitting the bill of the second phrase. So I will continue thinking on that one. XD

I will say, that is a mind teaser. =P
Hope someone gets it if I can't get anymore ideas.

Is it the ratio of two spherical volumes? Viewed from the side it would look kind of like a silhouette of Mickey, and it is visualized as two spheres, but the ratio between them is also present, adding the third part.

A water molecule.  Two hydrogens make the ears, the oxygen is the head, and it was a bathtub full of them that inspired Archimedes.

Riddle me this:

I'm born as one, as three I'm sold.
But as two I'll work when the nights are cold.

Sweet, Oniya got it.

O_O; I'm born as one, as three i'm sold... as two I'll work when the nights are cold.

Ummm.. any hints? xD I honestly asked three people if it rung any bells, but I think its an interesting one that I would definitely want to know. xD

That is a very, very good one. Hmmm... Neither I or anyone I asked about this can come up with an answer. I get the real sense that I am missing something about this, that I am looking at it in the wrong way...

Yarn.  It is born as a line, is sold as a ball, and works best as a blanket 'when nights are cold'.

I guess you can call mine a riddle;

a man lives in an apartment on the 99th floor of a building. Every morning he takes the elivator down to the Loby to go to work. At night when he comes back he takes the elivator up to the 55th floor. Why?

Forgive me if it's an easy one, I'm not very good at these.

Well that was interesting Oniya. =P

Though it wasn't easy due to how it was phrased. =P I think the second phrase you used would have been the right choice. ^_^

As for Eskimo. O_O;

99th floor... I'd hurt myself..

But I'd have to say that he had to perhaps switch elevators or someone wanted in? >.<!

That is a strange one.

SoRey. He takes it up to the 55th and walks the rest of the way.

Gotta love doing this on an iPod.
