A Riddle

what the hell...

is going on here? Thought this was a riddle thread? Are we talking relativity now? Well, it's relatively seen that the relativity theory belongs in the science forum.:)

Lets go back to Esp's riddle please...

"Green to red at the flick of a switch?":cool:
Thank you Banshee!

Six thousand years of civilization,
millions of years of evolution ,
and look at us!

I answered the green to red at the flick of a switch.
It was a toad in a blender (reference to British cult comedy 'League of Gentlemen').

One to think on, (credit to J K Rowling, Harry Potter and the Goblet of fire):

First think of the person who lives in disguise,
Who deals in secrets and tells nought but lies.
Next, tell me what's always the last to mend,
The middle of middle and the end of the end?
And finally give me the sound often heard
During the search of a hard to find word.
Now string them together, and answer me this,
Which creature would you be unwilling to kiss?
What goes from green to red at the flick of a switch?

Not traffic lights, they go amber after green, then red.

Well, I'm lost for an answer right now.

If you never read the book,
very, very well done. Ten thousand points :)


I've already answered the green to red post:

a toad in a blender.

This might be a little easy, considerig where we are, but....

Name the odd one out:

Candle Torch Sun Moon Star
esp ...

If it's as easy as you imply: Moon.

Shines by reflected light.

Take care ;)
this is proably too simple but what the heck

what am i?
what is greater then god?
more evil then the devil?
if you eat it, you will die?
the poor have plenty of it?

well.. if you dont eat the moldy parts, you'll proably be fine,
although im not talking out of expierance in the matter

Spot on. :) The others have their own intrinsic light.



- is greater than god
- is more evil than the devil
- to eat will eventually kill you
- is the most available commodity to the poor.

Now ponder this:

What is the difference between a military school and a locomotive conductor?
Oh my...

*What is the difference between a military school and a locomotive conductor?*

Esp, don't tempt me.:)

They are both thought only facts.

Secure in the beauty of military life, only orders, no questions.;)

Isn't that the same for locomotive conductors?

I told you, this is too tempting...:D
Sorry Banshee,

This has nothing to do with the F1 gliding nose up through the cloudbase, or the groundcrew cheering as she puts down her landing gear! :)

Think in terms of the lion in agony and the wet day!
what is...

What is Pink and taking up spaces in pages?

:D just kidding -- nothing personal :D
Waters, init?

Heckles rising...
Must keep control....
Too late, I've gone for the throat!

Takes one to know one though!

Yeah, too much rope here...

To be serieus for a moment, I don't have a clue about that military school and the locomotive conductor.:p

I am still laughing at the post by Ismu and you Esp.:D

Will give it a serieus thought now, really, no kidding. I'll be back.:cool:

(by the way, which one is PINK...)
