    Someone has to even the odds.

    F is at the end of beef, and as such is very much like a cow's tail. Likewise, E is at the end of life - and so could be said to be like death. And of course A is in the middle of day, and in the middle of day we have noon - no?

    When you take a good hard look, you can see that I is very clearly in invisible and never out of sight. J is in the first of January - same as new years day.

    My guess for the ring also would have been O, so I end up very much like the tree with the lumberjack. Stumped.

    But riddle me this...

    What's more merciful than god, more evil than the devil,
    greater than all the universe?
    The dead feast on this, but if the living were to eat it,
    than soon they join the dead.

    My first response was Tao.
    But the real answer is Nothing.
    Or are they the same response afterall?

    And we have a winner. The answer, indeed, was nada, zip, zilch, the big ol' thing about to eat Sebastien and his plucky luck dragon.
    Nothing.

    But riddle me this, riddle me that...
    What's the difference between your Granny and a grainery?

    I'd be posting too, but I only just found this thread.

    For Tragic's first one I was going to say Greg. Doesn't quite fit, but what the hell. Not sure about his second or Launch's riddle.

    It's quite simple really, but everything depends on how you look at it.

    Well, between Woofer and TragicLad, you solved all the conundrums but one...so I guess I'll tell you the answer:

    Q. What letter is like a wedding ring?
    A. "d", because "we" could not be "wed" without it.

    Groooaaaaannnnnnnn........

    ne ways, here's another one:

    I went to Naboo; I stopped there, and I never went there, and I came back again. What am I?

    btw Launch, PLEASE give us another hint...
    my poor brain is soooooo sore.... what's left of it!
    I've been trying to figure out binary conversions all morning!!! duh :_|

    does the line have to be straight? I ALMOST have it... I'm not perfect, but I'm soooo close, it scares me.

    Well, lol, I could.... BTW, its not binary, and yes, the line must be straight.

    Heres a hint.....(should I??...)(oh, why not!)

    Ok, look at what you reading as three tens...

    I GOT IT! I GOT IT! I GOT IT! Even before I read the hint! HEE HEE HEE

    On a clock, the time 9:50 is also the same as 10 minutes to 10.
    With one (straight) line you can make 101010 into 10T010!!!!

    BRAVO!!!! very nice!!! MORE!!

    Launch - haven't ignored the PM'd riddle. Just continuing to ponder it. I'm not ready to cry stumped yet - but I'm still tossing it around in my noggin.

    My riddle many posts ago was,
    What is the difference between your Granny and a grainery?
