the Firefighter is the boys mom.

Gypsy ninja pirate zombie king:
the Firefighter is the boys mom.

Yep.
That was a bit easy. It works better as a pub riddle. I've always liked it though, sometimes people can get really stumped because the idea of a female firefighter (or surgeon or whatever) is so difficult for them to imagine.

Your turn.

James Joseph Emerald:
A house-fire breaks out one night. Firefighters arrive on the scene to find a boy lying in front of the house, injured but still alive. The boy's father didn't make it out in time, having died of smoke inhalation. One of the firefighters approaches the boy to comfort him, but is shocked upon seeing his face. The boy is the firefighter's son. How is this possible?

The fire fighter is a woman. Or gay. Or the kid's godparent, who is now his new parent because it was a single father.

Edit: Darn! Foiled by my own slow typing speed/ my tendency to be distr Oh! Shiny!

What can run but never walks, has a mouth but never talks, has a head but never weeps, has a bed but never sleeps?

A river.

Yep, Your turn.

What is red when balancing, is hard to ever find in nature, can have no roots made evenly, and means, atomically, the opposite of what it should?

That's actually really tough. I barely even understand what that's supposed to mean. Like, what exactly does "atomically opposite" mean? And "roots made evenly"... is that equal length, or equal value for each root? And how exactly is the root "made"?

Mwa ha ha! I made this riddle myself, so perhaps it needs fine tuning...
atomically means "having to do with atoms", in this case.

I hope the hint doesn't make it too easy, or still too hard to figure out.

Negatives? It's definitely something to do with negative numbers.

If I'm right, which I'm quite confident I am, let someone else ask a riddle...

Quite right, so its anyone's turn now.

I guess I'll do another, to make up for my pathetically easy previous one. Hopefully this will be a bit more difficult:

A warrior, charging into battle.
An emperor, watching the heavens.
A crystal, shining bright as the sun.
A knight, standing his ground.
A dragon, awaiting its rider.
A soldier, piloting a war machine.

What comes next?

Ya'll give up?

Wow, I think I just killed a 23-page thread.
Maybe that riddle was a bit too hard.
In any case, the answer was:


Points to anyone who can figure out why that's the answer.

Somebody else can post now.

I still don't get it. Most of the riddle doesn't really seem relevant to the answer.

It's relevant, it just might be relying on knowledge that's a bit more esoteric than I thought.

Oh ok. I've just never played FF.

I have also never played FF, but props for creativity.

Hey ppl are we at a stall after that FF ride... If so I have one....

well since no one seems to be answering you can answer this or just ignore it

-I dreamed I saw a fairy's dance,
Upon the midnight sky.
Where lights, like lantern's grew,
Without a whim, or a why.
Amid their joy,
Amid their dance,
I came running into their midst.
But with nar'ry a sound,
They drew away,
And fell into the mist.
Oh, I saw them again,
But only from very far.
Dancing in the air at night,
Like tiny lanterns, or tiny stars.-

Bump, bump, bump, bump the dying thread

Ok,
A child is sitting on his grandfathers lap when he looks up and says "grandpa how old are you" the old man looks down at the child and says
"son I have lived many years and have seen many things. but as of last year I have only seen my birthday 20 times". So how old is the man?

80. he was born on February 29th of a Leap Year.

What can you put in an empty barrel to make it lighter? (No helium, smartarses)

Panzervaughn:

One thou you are right Please wait for the person asking the riddle to say so before asking your riddle. two please quote that person so that they know that you made a guess and three..... A hole

Sorry about the lack of quote,
not sorry about not waiting.
And Yes.

Ok then,
you see me when you wake in the morn and i am with you all day but you lose me at midnight and midday. What am I?

Yep your go sir,

>.> I lose my shadow at midday, and from 8pm-5am.

Panzervaughn:

Yeah... I really isn't a perfect riddle. And speaking of riddles that aren't perfect:

Which has more legs, a goose, or no goose? And add your reason why, because there are only two options.

"Because otherwise it wouldn't be a riddle" is not a valid answer.

slow ass internet contention posted twice >_<

ok i have to admit this one has me perplexed.... but I'm going to say no goose... i don't know why i think there is some sorta trick question here

Hmm... Ill go with no goose. Is it something to do with the number of syllables? each syllable being a "leg" of the word...
