I really appreciate riddles, and I do share the pleasure of making riddles with my friends and colleagues all the time. So I thought I might bring that to the style forum.

Ok here are the rules.

1- If posting after a riddle, your post must contain but the answer to the riddle. If you don't have the answer, but have a riddle, you must wait for the previous riddle to be elucidated, before you post a new one.

2-Only post riddles that make sense and can be understood by everybody else not only be you, and whose answer is also possibly known by another person and not only by you. This is to say that don't post your own fabricated riddles here.

OK that said, I think I will start.


It is greater than god, more evil than the devil, the poor have it, the rich need it, and if you eat it, you will die? What is it?

^ Somebody e-mailed me that riddle back in 2002. Apparently 90% of kindergarten kids answered it correctly compared to 90% of Harvard grads who got it wrong. So, yes. You are a genius.

I guess you can tell yourself that. If it makes you feel any better.

So what is the next riddle, now that this one has already been answered. Anybody else got another riddle to keep the show going?

Both of you have just violated rule number one of this thread which says you can post or suggest a riddle except the previous one has been solved.

What do you have to say for your defense?
