Er, last time I checked golf didn't start with a T.

I think it's supposed to be a golf "tee", not necessarily a "T"


The dark is generous, and it is patient, and it always wins---
but in the heart of its strength lies weakness: one lone candle is enough to hold it back.

Yeah, those aren't going to do much, there are too many people here who read LOTR.

I have a math riddle. Let's say I'm playing a certain card game I know, of. I'm playing with a deck of fifty-one, so you can guarantee the answer isn't fifty-two. I draw a two-card doogie, get two tens, and we're using artificial light on Monday, so I draw a double doogie, which is one card. it's a jack, but there are four people sitting at the table, so I pass my turn. One person scores out with a royal fizzbin, but, as I said, it's Monday, and lucky for me that persons to my left, so I get a bonus draw. The other two people just took their two-card draws. I take my single doogie (now one card) get a nine, but since a have a bonus draw that'd just pink my fizzbin if I can get a queen. I take my card... and get a queen! So I'm first along with the guy to my left. We decide to make popcorn, so the other two people left in the game take two cards each, two from my hand and two from the deck. HOW MANY CARDS ARE LEFT IN THE DECK?

Looking back, maybe that riddle idea wan't so hot. Oh ,well, Don't answer right away, as it could take a little contemplating for ME to tigure out what the answer was. And it yoiu know where this card game comes from, let's keep it between us.

I am not going to answer this for I can't handle math at 10 in the morning

OK this is a Brownie Girl Scout riddle I know of. A girl was trying to find a Brownie since they are helpful people. She went to the edge of the lake and said this: Twist me and turn me and show me the Elf. I looked in the water and saw...

I didn't know that was from a LOTR book, what is it called, "The Hobbit"? I will search for it, here's another one:

I'm as small as an ant, as big as a whale. I'll approach like a breeeze, but can come like a gale. By some I get hit, but all have shown fear. I'll dance to the music, though I can't hear. Of names I have many, of names I have one. I'm as slow as a snail, but from me you can't run. What am I?

So we shall flow a river forth to Thee
And teeming with souls shall it ever be.

Correct!

It weighs a lot when forward, but far less when backwards. Any guesses?

Actually the answer is "1"

It only takes the last brick to 'complete' the building.. but I'll give you points for doing math

Right again. Is the answer grass, tennis balls, paint, walls, seats?

EDIT: Rogue NIne beat me to it, and I was wrong anyway.

I live in the oceans, rivers, and sea. When I'm cold, I float. When I'm hot, I'm free.

Aha! I thought of one! Well, it's a sort of a question riddle, but anyway, here goes.

Is there any word in the English language which contains all the vowels?


The dark is generous, and it is patient, and it always wins---
but in the heart of its strength lies weakness: one lone candle is enough to hold it back.
Love is more than a candle.

@Aurora Starfire - No. Or none that I can come up with.

@ED - A rocking chair?

Lucy loves puzzles, so she tests her friends by wearing different coloured hats to lunch each day. On Monday she wears red, Tuesday orange, Wednesday yellow and Thursday green. What colour will she wear on Friday?

Since she is following the order of the spectrum, blue for Friday.

A man leaves home and travels for a while before turning left. He travels a bit further and turns left again. He travels some more and turns left again. He is now approaching home again, and sees two men wearing masks. Who are they?

The catcher. It's a baseball field.

Riddle:

A man gets on his horse. He rides to a motel on Friday. The man stays there for two days, and goes back home on Friday. How is this possible?
