Riddles

Post  VotreReine on Fri May 30, 2008 1:56 am

I have an assignment I'm meant to do where I have to include 10 questions as a dvd kind of game. So I chose riddles. However, I'm having trouble coming up with 3 fake answers for them.

So I'd like your help to 1) have a guess at the answer 2) suggest other possible answers that won't make the real answer obvious.


THE RIDDLES

1
My thunder comes before the lightning;
My lightning comes before the clouds;
My rain dries all the land it touches.
What am I?

2
What has three feet but can't stand up?

3
I pass before the sun
yet make no shadow.
what am i?

4
We are very little creatures
all of us have different features
one of us in glass is set
one of us you'll find in jet
another you may see in tin
and a fourth is boxed within
if the fifth you should pursue
it can never fly from you.
what are we?

5
in a tunnel of darkness lies a beast of iron
it can only attack when pulled back.
what is it?

6
walk on the living
they don't even mumble
walk on the dead
they mutter and grumble.
what are they?

7
What gets wetter the more it dries?



I don't have all the riddles I need yet and I don't know if I will keep these ones.

If you know any riddles, please share them.

Oh, did you intend for these to be solved in forum? Number 2 is Three Feet=A Yard.; Number 6 is Grass; Number 7 is Talcum


The mystery is... what answers number 1...

No I didn't intend for them to get solved.

Unfortunately, because of that, I can't say if you're right or wrong.

My guesses:

1. Drought. Or politicians.
2. A stool?
3. A shadow!
4. Either butterflies or letters.
5. The Death Star in a black hole.
6. Historians or oldies.
7. A towel!

@ Ken: No, she said he wants them to be guessed, I think, so that she can come up with fake answers! Or something.

Some great answers there. Politicians, Death Star and Historians gave me a good laugh.
