Hey... this is not a fair puzzle. There are too many differences. But i know the similar one: they running after the whistle screech!

my turn, what is this:
Small, black, sweaty, move up and down.
ah... no... that's too easy... It's an ant doing a push up!

Small (1cm), black, and puching your nose if you pull it!

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

One punches your ticket to ride, the other punches your ticket after the ride?

Good thinking, but no cigar

'Couse it's fair! I even gave an example of the format in a previous puzzle. Still we can come back to my puzzle

pushing / punching / pinching?
or what is puching?

Punching!

misspell... It's Punching

Wel.... since no one tried to answer for hours, I'll give the answer..

It's a crook's mole!
...try to pull it off, you'll got a big fist

Whats a crook's mole??

Parascalops criminalis, perhaps?

Peace.

Then riddle me this:

This is as light as a feather but nobody can hold on to it.
What is it...?

A kiss?

This is an old one that should be easy.

What walks on 4 legs in the morning, 2 legs in the afternoon, and 3 legs in the evening?

Man.

Riddle of the sphinx

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

Banshee,
Air? Time?

Ahh, Seeker... I remember the legs riddle. Inspired me to look up a couple of others. These are pretty easy:

I "Alive without breath,
as cold as death;
Never thirsty, ever drinking,
"

&

II "It cannot be seen, cannot be felt,
Cannot be heard, cannot be smelt.
It lies behind stars and under hills,
And empty holes it fills
It comes first and follows after,
Ends lilfe, kills laughter...
"

Okay, two more since there's several to choose from...

III "Voiceless it cries,
Wingless flutters,
Toothless bites,
Mouthless mutters.
"

This one may be a tad tougher...

IV "An eye in a blue face
Saw an eye in a green face.
'That eye is like to this eye'
Said the first eye.
'But in low place,
Not in high place.'
"

The Hobbit was such a good book...

First one is a fish...

I'll leave the rest to others.

Esp, I was too late...

Someone over here gave me the answer, TruthSeeker already posted it though. It's a damn pity, just when I finally knew the answer.

And you can post riddles, don't forget this one:

This is as light as a feather but nobody can hold on to it.
What is it...?

TruthSeeker, the Hobbit is wonderful, as is The Lord Of The Rings...

Oh My...

In my enthusiasm I totally overlooked the answer by Esp:

Banshee,
Air? Time?

which one Esp???...Time, or Air???

This is as light as a feather but nobody can hold on to it.

I think none of air or time. We can hold air in our lung. And we can't measure the light(weight) of time.
If it has exacly same weight with feather, it must be a feather too. It's still stuck on flying bird, so nobody can't hold it

....ok seriously...
I think it's an imagination.
...Imagination about something as light as a feather
(sorry, i can't get too serious on riddle )

Banshee,

Just to clarify. I am SeekerOfTruth.

Not to be confused with TruthSeeker who has a lot of opinions that I do not necessarily agree with.

We are two different people with largely different views of the world.

SeekerOfTruth the difference is very clear. Sad that a thoughtless person has tarnished your avatar with his misleading avatar name. Sigh.
