The rules are simple: someone posts a riddle, someone posts what they think is the answer. When the correct answer is posted the originator of the riddle posts letting the board know what the correct answer is. In the case of a tie, the winner is the one who posted first according to the timestamp on the post.

The winner then gets to post the next riddle. Please note: NO ADDITIONAL RIDDLES MAY BE POSTED UNTIL THE ANSWER TO THE CURRENT RIDDLE IS SOLVED. So no fair posting your guess as to an answer then posting a riddle of your own. Wait until you're a confirmed winner please.

So let's get the ball rolling with something fairly easy...


Riddle Me This:

What is at the beginning of eternity, the middle of forever, and at the end of time?

--Erin M.

And if I play my cards right, I might be an English colonel one day...or even a general! With four semicolons, too!

I wish I could get an English major, except that I hate teaching so technically, with an English major I'd starve. That's why I'm playing my cards even better. Economics+English. Money, Money! Yay!

Heh.. I'm English + Psychology, so I can tell from that post that you resent your mother and have strong romantic feelings for your toaster. Really. ;)

Of course, I'm not going to be a teacher or a psychologist, but no college offers a bachelor's degree in library science. English (with a concentration in writing) might come in handy if I want to make a few extra bucks as a hack.

Oh, and I hope Erin doesn't mind that we're swerving wildly off-topic while waiting for confirmation. Gotta pass the time somehow, I guess.

A woman has 7 children. Half of them are boys. How can this be possible?

I can be long, or I can be short.
I can be grown, and I can be bought.
I can be painted, or left bare.
I can be round, or square.
What am I?

A very old riddle,

The earth was my mother--I was raised
From her cold, wet womb. I know in my mind
I was not woven from hair or wool
By skillful hands. I have no winding
Weft or warp, no thread to sing
Its rushing song; no whirring shuttle
Slides through me, no weaver's sley
Strikes belly or back No silkworms spin
With inborn skill their subtle gold
For my sides, yet warriors call me
A coat of joy. I do not fear
The quiver's gift, the deadly arrow's flight.
If you are clever and quick with words,
Say what this strange coat is called.

Sounds like some kind of armour, and since Kevlar's woven into armour, I'll have to go with chain mail.

Correct, a coat of mail.
