SamtheDeathclaw:

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.)

Very close! I'll let you have the round, the answer was coffin!

Your turn!

TizzytheTormentor:

Very close! I'll let you have the round, the answer was coffin!

Your turn!

hey! I was close! Yeah, I remember now. >:| Gr.
Good choice of riddles, though!

Uh...
Hm.
I never got this one the first time I heard it. It's pretty pretentious, though.

What does man love more than life?
Fear more than death or mortal strife?
What do the poor have, what the rich require,
And what contented men desire?
What does the miser spend, the spendthrift save,
And all men carry to their graves?

Crap, I bet it is something obvious...

Is it curiosity?

TizzytheTormentor:

Crap, I bet it is something obvious...

Is it curiosity?

Nope! Not even close this time. The metaphysical part is right, though.
Think. There's a couple of lines that the riddle kind of hinges on. Look at the fourth and sixth lines, specifically.

Since we appear to be the only ones playing, I think relaxing the "one guess" rule would be prudent. :|

Hmm, I'm gonna say...TIME! I know I want more of it!

Could it also be faith?

Or hope!

It has to be one of those!

TizzytheTormentor:

It is none of those. :D

People love time more than life?

Fear faith or hope more than death?

Good guesses, but you're on the wrong track.
Think of the definition of "contented."

(Those were all my guesses, too, when I heard this one. So. Haha.)

GOT IT! The answer is nothing!

TizzytheTormentor:

GOT IT! The answer is nothing!

It is indeed! Good job!
You're up!

SamtheDeathclaw:

Hmm, let me think...

You do not want to have me,
But when you have me,
You do not want to lose me.
What am I?

Looked it up and seems fun, what is it?

TizzytheTormentor:

Hmm, let me think...

A lawsuit. One of my favorite riddles. :D

Yeah, anyways, your turn! I asked people to join in, hope they come in soon...

TizzytheTormentor:

Yeah, anyways, your turn! I asked people to join in, hope they come in soon...

Hopefully. There's only so long two people can keep a thread alive. :| Hah.

Hm.
I like this one. It sounds rather dark.

From the beginning of eternity
To the end of time and space
To the beginning of every end
And the end of every place.
What am I?

The letter E! I know that one!

Dang it! You're up again!

Here is one from my dad!

A man pushes his car in front of a hotel...
He pays the hotel owners some money...
After a few minutes, he pushes his car off again.

Why?

TizzytheTormentor:

Why?

Oh no! A riddle I've never heard before!

OHHHHH.
I played this game yesterday is the only reason I got it.
It's a game of Monopoly. :D

Yup! Your turn!

TizzytheTormentor:

Yup! Your turn!

Hmmm.
Nothing too difficult!

What is it that, after you take away the whole, some still remains?

Is this a literal thing, like the word wholesome.

SamtheDeathclaw:

A doughnut?

Dang it. Collins is up.

Fijiman:
A doughnut?

Clever, but no.

SamtheDeathclaw:

Fijiman:

Clever, but no.

Yeah, I mentally facepalmed after posting and seeing Collins' post.

Fijiman:

I thought you were just being funny. :D

SamtheDeathclaw:

Fijiman:

Not really. Although I didn't really put a lot of though into it and I was already beaten to the correct answer anyway so whatever.(I was getting dinner when Collins posted)

Fijiman:

EXCUSES. :P
Yeah, this is the kind of thread where if you're ninja'd you just kind of lost. Hah.

Yay, I win.
Okay, how about this?

My life can be measured in hours,
I serve by being devoured.
Thin, I am quick
Fat, I am slow
Wind is my foe.

MrCollins:

I want to say a fly, but I don't think that fits the devoured part and I can't think of anything else it could be. God I suck at riddles.

Fijiman:

Nope, try again

... I got nothing.

A candle.

RaNDM G:
A candle.

Correct you are my good sir, it is now your turn

Alright then.

Every morning at six, a man travels to his place of employment at Willis Tower. Unlike most sane people, he takes the stairs up to his office on the ninety-second floor, and only takes the elevator every evening when his shift is over.

Why would he do this?

He is very short and can reach the button for the ground floor but not the button for the 92nd floor, which is out of his reach.

Yep. You got it.

What is once in a minute, twice in a moment, and never in a thousand years?
