Riddle me this!
« on: February 10, 2004, 01:26:28 AM »
Welcome - This thread is a small competition, where I will ask a riddle and the first who answers the riddle correctly will get a point. These points are... well.. pointless, but are simply to show how adept or quick you are at answering riddles.

Question one:

Whoever makes it doesnt want it
Whoever buys it doesnt need it
Whoever needs it doesnt know it.

If its to hard or if no-one's answered after a while I may give hints. There may be a couple possible answers to a riddle, but I will only accept the one I have in mind.

"Stable".

Congratulations capt. Welcome to the race.

---- #10 Special, lateral thinking question ----

In the center of the room lies a dead man. Rays come through an open window. On the floor, lies a pile of gold, and a chandelier is attached to the ceiling.

What occupation/pastime did the man have, and how did he die?

The man was a treasure diver on a shipwreck who ran out of air.  The rays are manta rays (or sting rays).  Strolen got most of it.  Joint effort, with S-man taking most of the credit.

Excellent - with the special question having a point-mark of three, two will go to Strolen, and one to Ria.

>>>>>>>
The man was a treasure hunter, who dived into a shipwreck to search for treasure. Unfortunately he forgot to check his air supply and thusly ran out when he was at the bottom, drowning.
