QuietCupOfTea:
Were all the other suspects women?

Bingo! I love that riddle. You're up!

Oh, I really didn't expect to get that one right.

I don't really know any riddles, but I asked a friend who gave me this one:

A lady shoots her husband.
She then holds him underwater for over 5 minutes.
At last, she hangs him.
But five minutes later they both go out together and enjoy a wonderful dinner together.
How is this possible?

If someone's already posted it before me, I apologise. :)

Um, is she taking an old-timey photo of him? The kind that you soak and then hang up in a dark room to develop?

NinjaSniperAssassin:

Yes! Correct! Your go.

Alright, here's one I needed help to decipher:

Five hundred begins it, five hundred ends it,
Five in the middle is seen;
First of all letters, the first of all figures,
Take up their stations between.
Join all together, and then you will bring
Before you the name of an eminent king.

King Arthur?

Nope!

David?

Well done! King David is indeed the answer!

All about, but cannot be seen,
Can be captured, cannot be held,
No throat, but can be heard.

The wind/air?

Correct!

Alright, here we go:

It prods a man's hand, and it robs him of sleep,
It makes him climb mountains and travel the deep,
It makes him go wander down deep in a cave,
and do almost anything stupid or brave,
The longer denied the greater it grows,
It makes a man learn 'till he thinks that he knows.

NinjaSniperAssassin:

Morning wood?

In all seriousness tho Curiosity.

Indeed It is curiosity (or yearning for adventure)

It is indeed, sorry it took me a week to confirm your brilliance. You are up!

I want to make a riddle by myself, but I will take this one...

I live for the laughs, I live for the crowds, without them, I am nothing...

Correct, I suck at riddles...

You go next!

If you throw me from the window,
I will leave a grieving wife.
Bring me back, but in the door, and
You'll see someone giving life!

What am I?

Lizmichi:

What am I?

The letter 'n'. Simple enough.

Yep you got it. You're up next.

If a man carried my burden, he would break his back.
I am not rich, but I leave silver in my track.
What am I?

An old one, and probably used before. But the only one I know off the top of my head.

A mining cart?

TizzytheTormentor:
A mining cart?

Afraid not! Although that... Fits all the criteria. I never thought of that. Huh.

You might as well go, then! Not the answer I was looking for, but a valid answer nevertheless!

I got it? Awesome! What was the original answer?

OT: The person who invented it doesn't want it, the person who bought it doesn't need it, The person who needs it doesn't know it!

What is it?

What is it?

The answer for mine is a snail.

Oh, man. I feel like I know it. I know I've heard it but I don't know if I can think of the answer.
FACK.
This is going to bother me all week, now.

Take your time, my dad told it to me as a child and I had to be told the answer!

I should get more people to come figure it out!

TizzytheTormentor:

Uuuuugh. It's like that "Nothing." one. I was rubbish at that one too. UGH. This is going to bug me until I have to google it. Then I can't figure it out, though. :[ Sigh.

Do it! Riddles are a lot of fun. I don't know how this thing ever died. >:|

OY! No googling it!

I will try to get people to participate more!

Keep thinking!

TizzytheTormentor:

Keep thinking!

I wouldn't post it if I did, obviously! The very nerve of such an implication! You wound me, sir, wound me!
I'm thinking. But I think I may have blown a gasket. ACH.

Heh, it's tough, that is why I chose it!

TizzytheTormentor:

Heh, it's tough, that is why I chose it!

You're a terrible person and should feel bad for choosing such a hard riddle. >:|
Maybe I'm just not good at this sort.
I've heard a couple like it and could never figure it out. Maybe I'm bad at extrapolating. :|

Well, if you get this one, tell us your ones!

Give a guess!

TizzytheTormentor:

Well, if you get this one, tell us your ones!

Give a guess!

No, I hate those. Haha.

Ugh. Balls.
Uh, I really have no idea.
It has to be something no one wants. And not anything metaphysical, it seems like. Or else it couldn't be invented.
A gravestone? It has to have something to do with death, I guess. Although don't people usually buy gravestones ahead of time? I have no idea.
So grave/headstone is my answer.

(This me literally thinking as I typed. Editing is for other people.)
