Two men. And his horse is named Friday.


Show me a man who is twenty and not a liberal, and I will show you a man with no heart.
Show me a man who is forty and not a conservative, and I will show you a man with no brain.

Correct.
And, two men? I guess I was just so used to hearing this riddle I didn't read all of it. :P

Funny thing is, I can't remember what that person is called... the empire? Or, something?

Sorry, AkumaSF. Actually, there are a few words with all the vowels, but the one I was thinking of was "unquestionably". I'll post another one.

With pointed fangs it sits in wait,
With piercing force its doles out fate,
Over bloodless victims proclaiming its might,
Eternally joining in a single bite.
What am I?


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.
Love can ignite the stars.

It is neither a sewing machine nor a snake. Keep guessing!

A nickel and a quarter. You said one of them wasn't a quarter, but you said nothing of whether or not the other one was.

Lightning?

Bert Jenkins (Kurt's brother), Bill Stevens (Rose's brother), and Karla Meer (Teddy's fiance) are drinking coffee. Teddy Phillips (Karla's fiance), Rose Black (Bill's sister), and Kurt Jenkins (Bert's brother) are drinking tea. Using logic, is Elizabeth Brown (no relation) drinking coffee or tea, and why?

She's not drinking anything. She is not present.

Here is another one based upon a poem I wrote:
I rise up high in splendid light but by day I'm out of sight. I follow in the dying wake and silver sheen my skirt will make. Sometimes I'm there full face and awe but brand new, nothing at all.

Heres another riddle:

I am slim and tall, Many find me desirable and appealing. They touch me and I give a false good feeling. Once I shine in splendor, But only once and then no more. For many I am "to die for". What am I?

Is it a cigarette? Or maybe a cigar?

I'm sometimes white, and always wrong. I can break a heart and hurt the strong. I can build love and tear it down. I can make a smile, but more often bring a frown. What am I?
