    You forget the "and if you eat it, you'll die" part.
    No point mentioning these bats, I thought. The poor bastard will see them soon enough.

    I forgot a riddle, so here:

    I am the beginning of the end,
    and I end time and space.
    I am essential to creation,
    and i surround every place,
    what am I?

    i think this is a person 4 legs in the morning refers to crawling as a baby 2 legs at noon refers to walking on 2 feet as an adult and teh 3 legs in the evening is as a old mad you have a walking stick. i could be massively wrong but there is my guess

    WHat's the only question you can only answer 'No' to?
    "Are you lying?" works too.
    If you're telling the truth, then you'll reply no, you're not lying.
    If you ARE lying, you can't admit it by saying yes, hence your reply will be no too.

    [edit]
    In fact, "Are you sleeping?" is wrong - you can answer "yes", it just won't be the truth.

    When the chosen one finally gets to the town, he finds the football to cost $25. He buys it and starts his way back. On this way, he thinks about what to do with the $5 he got back, and decides to give everyone (incl himself) $1 refund and keep the remaining $2 as payment for his long way.
    SOOO, now every one of the three has effectively paid $9. 3x$9=$27. He kept $2. 27+2=$29. Where is the missing $1?
    The 1$ is not missing. they all paid 9 (9x3=27) so 27 - the 2 he kept = 25. the cost of the football

    Nobody has done one of these yet???

    This thing all things devours:
    Birds, beasts, trees, flowers;
    Gnaws iron, bites steel;
    Grinds hard stones to meal;
    Slays king, ruins town,
    And beats high mountain down.

    one of my favorites,


    Alive without breath
    Cold as death
    Never thirsty, ever drinking
    All in mail*, never clinking
