    Re: The Riddle-Game

    Could it possibly be a clam? But then again a clam isn't very slippery.

    Re: The Riddle-Game

    Oh, that was good.

    It's a bar of soap that's fallen in the bath.

    My riddle (if my answer proves correct):

    Silent, yet full of wisdom
    When older then you, I may yet be young
    Or younger, I may yet be old

    Judge me not by my face
    But in the tale I tell
    Will my purpose be told

    My arms together bar you
    Open they admit you
    To the knowledge they enfold

    Re: The Riddle-Game

    a book?

    I write lots of riddles.

    There once was a thing I was thinking,
    Like an eye without eyelid unblinking,
    We know it is there,
    By the cube and the square,
    And its status among us is shrinking.

    What is it?

    And...

    As a river I flow, toward the sky,
    Yet not a geyser, am I,
    To the ocean a river's delta may gush free,
    But my torrent flows invisibly.
    At the end, I leaves no trace,
    To quench the thirst, I feed my face.

    What am I?

    Wrong on both guesses. I hope it doesn't sound mean to say 'not even close', because then you might shift your paradigm, and find the answer another way.

    So, not even close.

    I've been thinking about this one for awhile and this is all I can come up with:

    An endangered animal being kept in a zoo.

    Reason: We may not see certain endangered species in day to day life, least of all in the wild. However, we are able to see these things inside a zoo ('We know it is there'). And the 'cube and the square' could refer to the cage in which the animal is kept. And the fact that the animal is endangered represents 'its status among us is shrinking.'

    I was able to explain myself out of that one, heh, however I still feel it's not the correct answer.

    Silly guess, but I thought of Pluto.

    A planet is like a giant eyeball, we know of it through mathematical calculations (the cube and the square), and it's status is definately shrinking.

    CORRECT. Very good, sir! Though your eyeball analogy is incorrect. Planets, when viewed, do not twinkle like stars. They appear as solid points of light.

    After evaporation I'm lost. Here's two guesses: A tree, or Photosynthesis.

    Very close! It is the osmosis of water through a flower's stem to its face.

    The right answer for (in part) the wrong reason. Yay me!

    New Riddle:

    As you, so I breathe
    And as you I am warm
    But my body is different by far

    For flesh have I not
    And though my dance charm you
    Touch me not, for fear of great harm

    OK, coming up with one right now:

    Flies without wings
    Feeds without eating
    Moves without legs
    Appearance is fleeting
