    Riddles!
    It's about time we had a riddle sharing post! So here it is!
    Post your most heinous riddles here!
    Here are some of my favourites.
    I travel many many miles, but never move. What am I?
    What goes around the world but stays in a corner?

    The man who invented it doesn't want it. The man who bought it doesn't need it. The man who needs it doesn't know it. What is it?

    (Batman riddles)

    Rip me out and scratch my head, what once was red is black instead.

    I have two hands upon my face, you won't find 13 any place.

    We move forward, never back. We protect our queen from attack.

    What has a mouth that never eats, has a bed but never sleeps, and runs all day but has no legs?

    What 11-letter English word does everyone pronounce incorrectly?

    Only one color, but not one size.
    Stuck at the bottom, yet can easily rise.
    Present in the sun, not affected by rain.
    Doing no harm and feeling no pain.
    What is it?

    And a few classics:

    What goes on 4 legs in the morning, 2 legs at noon, and 3 legs in the evening.

    You're facing two unmarked doors, one leading to death, one to life. There are two identical guards, one only tells lies, and one only tells the truth. What do you ask to know which door leads to life?

    You could also ask "If I asked your partner which door was life: What would he say?" And then pick the other door.

    This one should be solved quickly. It's a riddle I made up. Very modern!

    A Rock 'n Roller fighting on the side of light. With weapon in hand, he sets forth to fight the forces of an american jackal who's mastery of machinery makes his Machiavellian mechanizations invert to reveal his primary pronunciation.

    Nine great battles, and 79 skirmishes against the generals sees this man fighting futile and fumbling foes who's blocks, strikes, and tactics become his own. He learns from those he defeats and integrates them into himself to face off against the nemesis of all. Time and again he defeats this dastardly deviant only to learn that in a few years he's free to foment the fight again, with new foes and fighters.

    Yet in the distance a whistle warns all, and we know the day is to be saved.

    Put on your hard hats, gentlemen.

    So

    1) a road/highway ?
    2) a postage stamp ?
    3) a coffin (pretty sure of it)

    My Batpowers are a bit rusty, but I'm working on them next.

    Really? I thought you'd be quick and solve this one in a flash. Maybe you should just give up and admit defeat? If you don't have the guts to man up, though, I'll cut to the chase and give you a crash course on this riddle.

    Yep, spot on.

    And yes, a day is used as a metaphor for a person's life

    Oh and a tribute to Die Hard ^^

    On my way to St. Ives I saw a man with 7 wives. Each wife had 7 sacks. Each sack had 7 cats. Each cat had 7 kittens. Kitten, cats, sacks, wives. How many were going to St. Ives?

    Haha no need to feel old. I knew it as the direct-translation "Rock Man"

    Good one, though :)
