Wary Wolf:
Well, seeing as it's a little slow, the darkest of birds is a Raven

That's one thing that tripped me up, I couldn't decide if the darkest of birds was a Raven or a Crow.

Is the answer Death?

Fits really well actually, but no.

Sorry, I also realize it should read:

I can be both above and below you at any one time.

Well, this is just a shot in the dark, but is the answer Darkness/blackness?

Nope

Note that I have specified a raven and raven specifically. So what is something that is (un)commonly associated with ravens?

Also I make an assumption that the object in question is obvious before you. It really depends, but I think nearly everyone on this forum would have this in front of them.

I'll give you another guess, then I'll let you in on my weird logic. Unless you want to keep trying...

Eh, it's probably something I'll be like "ooh! I SHOULD have known that!" but I'll give. What is it?

A desk.

Sorry if you were typing on your laptop on a bearskin rug there ;)

Because I'm a meanie I added the Raven line as homage to Alice in Wonderland's riddle:

"Why is a raven like a writing desk?" Which insinuates there is something in common with both a raven and a desk, even if it is an unanswerable riddle :P

Was hoping someone would make the connection there though. But that's what I get for trying to come up with my own riddles...

I say have another go. Give me more time to think up a more logical riddle o_0

I actually am using a dresser to put my computer on, and I haven't seen anything Alice in Wonderland related except for Kingdom Hearts (which I'm actually playing right now, hence by previous riddle) since I was, I don't know, 5 or 6.

Okay, here's one.

It is filled with everything, and yet at the same time filled with nothing.
We know a lot about it, yet we know so little at the same time.
So much of it seems so chaotic, yet there is an order to it.

What is it?

Eh, I was looking for "the universe" but that's pretty much the same thing.

Okay... Got any more riddles?

hope this one is a little more logical

my work is subtle, but not hard to see
and to everyone, i am key.
to be professional, prioritize,
my regular use. i capitalise.
to those with rage i am abused,
but here and now i am not used.

The shift key/caps lock key?

Too easy! I need to get out so I'm not making riddles about things I'm seeing right in front of me ;)

Wary Wolf:

You know, you nearly stumped me. I didn't even notice you weren't capitalizing words until I thought about it for a while.

I'll go with one I think should be easy:

It is the realm of sadists, altruists, geniuses, and fools.
Anarchy reigns there, but sometimes there are rules enforced with an iron fist.
Much joy may be found there, but also endless hatred.
Beings like Gods reign there, but they are no better than the ones over which they rule.

What is it?

I'd go with the mind, or perhaps the imagination.

Other fits would be something like morality or faith.

Nope, guess again.

A riddle forum?

Wary Wolf:
A riddle forum?

Actually, just "forums" in general is what I was going for, but good job. I figured that would be easy enough considering we are there.

I thought I'd be more specific. I knew what you meant ;)

This one at least is not something that's not in front of me for once.

I am what I am, when I'm in my prime.
I'm not what I am, at an earlier time.
Hated by poets, loved by seamen.
Produced by nature, picked by yeomen.

I doubt this is it, but the only thing that comes to mind is oranges for some reason.

And orange is absolutely right. Your subconscious is telling you things...

Typical. If I'm not making riddles about things right in front of me. It's about food.

Wow, I was just going with a complete shot in the dark. BTW, when you respond to me can you please quote me so I know you've done it without having to check this thread regularly?

Let's see...

White picket fences and apple pie,
but without this the picture doth lie.
We constantly get rid of it, but seek to keep it around,
it fills the neighborhood with an unbearable sound.

What is it?

I suck at rhyming.

Your rhyme is fine.

You know, I don't do this very often, but LOL. We constantly get rid of children?

immortalfrieza:

Heh, I swear I read it wrong. My reading was that you do eventually want to get rid of your children by allowing them to leave the nest as it were.

Next guess would be serenity

Serenity fills the neighborhood with an unbearable sound? Nope.

Okay, one more guess.

immortalfrieza:

Okay, one more guess.

Well, I started with silence, which eventually turned into peace and quiet, then serenity. I thought the concept of a completely silent neighborhood would be akin to some kind of living hell with no birds chirping, no wind rustling the trees, no sound of children's laughter or the conversation with those around you, wishing you a pleasant day. A ghost town, devoid of emotion, filled with an eerie silence.

That said, it's taken me a while and I'm not coming up with anything good, so I'll go with a joke answer instead:

A smug sense of self satisfaction?

Not as good as 'children', I know, but that will be my last guess. I reckon you've got me with that one :P

Heh, I guess I did, all your answers were way off.

The answer is grass. Now guess what I had to do right when I made that riddle.

immortalfrieza:

Murdering your childre...

I mean mowing the lawn. Heh, I did mine just last weekend myself, so no excuses for me o_0.

I'll take the watery eyes of hayfever as punishment for not guessing that one.

Take it it's your go again?

Nah, you do one. I'll think up one later.

Brain fazzledd so I'll cheat:

Three people check into a hotel. They pay $30 to the manager and go to their room. The manager finds out that the room rate is $25 and gives the bellboy $5 to return to the guests. On the way to the room the bellboy reasons that $5 would be difficult to split among three people so he pockets $2 and gives $1 to each person. Now each person paid $10 and got back $1. So they paid $9 each, totaling $27. The bellboy has another $2, adding up to $29.

Where is the remaining dollar?

The answer is nowhere. The bellboy's 2 dollars shouldn't be added to the amount the three paid, or else it's counted twice. The 2 dollars should be subtracted from the amount the three paid.

Right. Sorry, been a bit unwell and as mentioned the brain isn't working 100%. Want to go, or do you want a riddle that isn't to do with math ;)

Okay, this should be an easy one.

It is known for nobility and grace,
and can forever keep up the pace.
Where there is one, there is many,
with savagery all a plenty.
