Correct. If he lied, he would be hung. But he was telling the truth, since he said so. But if he was telling the truth, he would be decapicitated, but that would mean he would be lying...in short terms: Impossible

And for the other one:

5 + 5 + 5 = 550

It's quit simple...

5 + 5 4 5 = 550

Just make it a four XD

Maybe because she's a nun? They tend to call them sisters, do they not?

Wait a second...
I recall something about RJM being a permanent resident of the Asylum. He was locked up in the sewers right? And when recently some new people joined, he stated himself that you shouldn't listen to him.
So...could it be RedJohnnyMike?

Ztalker gets the point. The answer was our beloved RJM.

Now here I have another one:

I am old yet still around. My beard sometimes trails on the ground. I see the change as days go by. Boy does the time fly.

^^^You got it. That was one I thought of spontaneously and decided to go easy on ya since my RJM riddle had people stumped.

Here is a new one:

I lurk here and lurk there. You could say that I am everywhere. I watch for the spam and yet I can't resist those that are a ham. I run the place where the crazies meet and serve up the cocktails. Sweet! If you know me then it'll be a boom just as long as you like Orlando Bloom.

^^You're right. I couldn't resist since the big joke with that was over Orlando Bloom. Ztalker you are a genius

Here's another:
You open the door to brand new worlds. A place where the impossible unfurls. I am the keeper waiting for you. For you to open and have a look through. I contain what lies in your dreams from the shores to the mountain streams. From me you learn anew and see what others knew.

Very nice riddles by the way, JM12.
I'll pitch in for you I gues (a pretty easy one):

The blood of Jedi resemble my blade. I cut through the slightest sign of hope. I am brightest in the dark. What am I?

^The Sandman? Boy I suck.

A train is travelling at 1km/hour. The train is 1km long. The train passes through a tunnel which is also 1km long. How long does it take for the train to get out of the tunnel?

Well...at the moment the front of the train enters, it will be 1 kilometer, thus 1 hour away from the exit. The rear end though, will be 1 kilometer + the 1 kilometer lenght away from the exit.
In total, it ought to take them 2 hours.

(Hell...I suck at pretending to know math )

Akuma: stop with the math please. I don't want to get into calculus, the math of rate of change.

I have another riddle. Those who know me know who I am talking about. Let's see if anyone can guess:

I believe in equality and I fight. Not always by the sword of might. My people praise me and gave me my name. Though to me I am always the same. My spirit burns with fire and earth from the day of my birth. I read the stars and see the light and always in my heart do what is right.

Well technically, the train is only in the tunnel for one second.... the entire train, not just part of it.

Anakin: You are right. That riddle was about my character Kirabaros whom I created in the fic Heart of the Guardian. What gave it away? The whole stars thing?

Akuma: I thought for sure you would get it.

OK. I have another riddle for you:

I speak in words of gifted tongues. I speak in words that have been sung. Here in this place I keep. And in words I can make you weep. In this place I keep what's mine. This place where people leave their sign.

If this is hard let me know and I might be generous and give a hint.

Good job Anakin you named the right one. Maybe it's because the riddle could apply to both but I have not really seen an RP give a feelign of pathos.

Here is another:

In this place a new light is streaming. In the fashion of everyone laughing. It has the songs that everyone knows but instead makes milk blow from your nose. Here in this place it has the words. And songs here will make your gut burst.

How do you expect someone who hasn't read Eragon to get those??

Anyway, here's another:

They have not flesh, nor feathers, nor scales, nor bone. Yet they have fingers and thumbs of their own. What are they?
