Um... you'll never reach the door because you'll always be moving only half as far as you need to go.

Yes, indeed. Just takes some common sense to answer that one.

Okay, um..... thunderstorm?

A big truck is crossing a bridge 1 mile long. The bridge can only hold 14000 lbs, which is the exact weight of the truck. The truck makes it halfway over the bridge and stops. A bird lands on the truck. Does the bridge collapse?

No, because if the truck is a mile long and halfway on the bridge then there is only 7000 pounds on the bridge when the bird lands on it.

Pass if I'm right. Too tired to think of a riddle right now


And Shepherds we shall be
For thee, my Lord, for thee.
Power hath descended forth from Thy hand
Our feet may swiftly carry out Thy commands.
So we shall flow a river forth to Thee
And teeming with souls shall it ever be.
In Nomeni Patri Et Fili Spiritus Sancti.

Of course it does... the added weight of the bird, even one ounce more causes the bridge to collapse

No, because nobody would allow a vehicle on a bridge that weighs exactly what the bridge could carry without breaking. There are always safety margins.

Well, the answer is no, but that's not the reason why. Bonus points to whoever can explain why the bridge didn't break.

^Is the truck very long? I assume the truck is 1 miles long, then no, if the truck makes half way of the bridge, there are only about 7,000 lbs...

Hope I'm correct.

No, sorry. The bridge is 1 mile long. The truck is not a mile long. It is just a regular truck like you'd see on the highway.

Oh I got it--the gas...You have to exclude the gas in the gas tank--if it had driven half mile, it had consumed considerable sum of gas which is more than the bird's weight...

A wild guess...Hope I'm correct...Is it correct?

Yeah, but I deleted the riddle. And, you're right, that's the answer.

Is it quoted from WormWar?

It is also a good answer, but we have no confirmation of Nihlius ever caring about said stuff. Or if he did confirm, we wouldn't know, what with his werid langague and all?

Neither Darth Traya, nor Anger, nor Darth Vader.

If anyone finds out the answer, I'll also add in an explaination for why this is so. Or, maybe, for bonus points, have someone explain how it meets all the critera in the riddle.

SilentScope: For some reason I am thinking of the Exile or Revan but I don't know. You sad it wasn't anger. What about passion?

Another new riddle for you:

I flap aboout your heads. Circling while you sleep in bed. I rustle my leaves and swoop for the kill. To read this is JM12's will. I am her pet and I fly through the night. Praises me she does of my painful might.
