CounterAttack:
A riddle similar to this one has already been done: the answer is "I will be boiled in water."

damn. i actualy didn´t read the whole thread (skippped to the last qouple of pages) but you´re right

Here:

A diamond in the dark,
shadow is his veil.

Hmmm...
Is that a way to say "A Diamond in the Rough"?

Nope.

I'm going to go with: a star.

No.

Here:

A diamond in the dark,
shadow is his veil.

I am pretty sure that is meant to be:
A diamond in the dark,
on a leash that never falters.
Shadow is his veil.

The irony being I cannot remember the answer!

I am gonna guess:
A fetus is the best I can come up with atm - I am guessing the leash bit doesn't mean a leash so much as what holds it and shadow is another way of describing something.

Lol... yeah, that was the version I wrote a couple of months ago in another thread... I simplified and reposted it here because I don't think anybody ever guessed (or even bothered to answer) it before.

Nope... it's actually fairly literal (well, the final line anyway). And just ignore the old version with the bit about the leash; I took it out because it sounded stupid and wasn't really as important as the other two lines.

Claymorez:

I have spent three hours mulling this over Which I both love and hate because its so rare for me to find good riddles. If it's fairly literal then my first guess is an unmined diamond in rock? Also you were right.

No.

Keep in mind that it isn't all literal, and it isn't all metaphorical.

Also, thanks. :)

The moon?

I can just about say that I thought through a lot of other choices to reach this answer, but I'm still pretty sure it's wrong in some way. Still, if in some weird way I'm correct, have someone else post a riddle... I can't make riddles...

Nope, you're absolutely right!

Thanks for giving it a go!

DAMN! I was so sure it wasn't the moon I thought that was far far too obvious plus I couldn't quite stop thinking about the other line of the riddle "on a leash that never falters." :P But a good riddle all things considered.

In the mean time here is another riddle (Its a very crude one):

I am physically firm and ridged although mentally indifferent.
I come by many tones and textures.
I serve as both nursery, home and graveyard, yet I waste nothing and recycle what I can.
I am not alive.
What am I?

You got it!
You can post a new riddle.

Nobody'd posted in three days. I think Spoon's too held up on the Puzzle Adventure to do this, maybe someone else should put a riddle up. (not me :/)

I'm not doing the puzzle adventure or anything, just couldn't think of a worthy riddle.

Someone else take a stab at it.

A man has been standing in front of you house for 6 months. He hasn't moved from the spot, slept, nor eaten. One day, you woke up to find he was gone. Who was this man?

it is you. the one day u wake and it is cold enough for a frost to be on ur window so u can't see ur reflection

Fury Is Me.:

He's a snowman?

Probably don't have to keep saying this at this point but, just to keep safe, I don't post riddles. Just answer 'em, I'm afraid. Someone else post one if I'm right by some twisted logic.

He's a snowman that melted because spring came.

CORRECT!
Revolver got it right first but he doesn't post riddles... Sooo...

Om

A group of people with assorted eye colors live on an island. They are all perfect logicians -- if a conclusion can be logically deduced, they will do it instantly. No one knows the color of their eyes. Every night at midnight, a ferry stops at the island. If anyone has figured out the color of their own eyes, they [must] leave the island that midnight. Everyone can see everyone else at all times and keeps a count of the number of people they see with each eye color (excluding themselves), but they cannot otherwise communicate. Everyone on the island knows all the rules in this paragraph.

On this island there are 100 blue-eyed people, 100 brown-eyed people, and the Guru (she happens to have green eyes). So any given blue-eyed person can see 100 people with brown eyes and 99 people with blue eyes (and one with green), but that does not tell him his own eye color; as far as he knows the totals could be 101 brown and 99 blue. Or 100 brown, 99 blue, and he could have red eyes.

The Guru is allowed to speak once (let's say at noon), on one day in all their endless years on the island. Standing before the islanders, she says the following:

"I can see someone who has blue eyes."

Who leaves the island, and on what night?

This is a really hard riddle but I think it's really interesting so good luck.

i don't see the riddle in this story.... who leaves? as in what color eye they have, then no one leaves cause everyone see someone with blue eyes. IDK.... i guess that is my guess, NO ONE

each person tells another person their eye color. What I mean is that person A tells person B what person B's eye color is and person B does the same for person A. This happens for each person so they all leave.
probably wrong but if i'm right, somebody else give a riddle.

Wrong and wrong.
They can't communicate.

The ferry leaves The Island every single night. Is that the correct answer or did I miss it?

The Gurus statement makes them repeat this about those around them.

They all leave, that night.
They all know their eye colours because the guru makes them say it.

They all leave, except the Guru I suppose.

They all think that the Guru was speaking to them, and regardless of if it's right or not, they all think they have blue eyes.

The only other solution I can think of is that someone grows half a brain and looks at their reflection in the water.
