***Now comes the original post***

If it it's ok with all the moderators and other people here, I would like to start a topic concerning riddles, because I like them :P.

You know what really is great? I wanted to start handing out losses to the winner who first posted the correct answer, but, that wouldn't be fair to the mp4 and mp3 players. So I guess I'll just start with an example and an easy riddle of my own making (so there is no way you can cheat via wiki or such)

Example:

When set loose I fly away,

Never so cursed as when I go astray.

What am I?

The answer is:

Money

(select with your mouse over it so you can see the answer, I typed it in a spoiler bar, so honest people could still try)

Beware though, this is a riddle that is quite well known.

Now my own riddle :P

The fatter I am, the longer I live

The longer I am, the more I shall give

Wind is my sustenance, like air, my food

But given to much, and I'll be in a foul, foul mood

What am I?

I' ll give the answer in a couple of days, or when someone has guessed the right answer.

Again, remove this topic if you don't want it. It's just for fun :P

Is it by any chance a '

tree

' :P?

i was going to say that as well, but i wasnt sure how the wind bit fitted with that answer

--Bunny, cos i'm one of 'those' people, the 'to' in 'when given to much' should be 'too', i think so anyway.

**Edit. i get what it means now :P**

It's not a tree :D.

And no that is not correct black scyther, i'm sorry :P

Rain

is food for

clouds

. My food is of a different kind. Air does not feed

clouds

, they just move them around. :P

Very nice try though.

A hint, if you want it.

It says sustenance first, and that may mean !more! objects. Food for clouds is rain, but that rain has to be able to go up into the sky.

I'm not going further into that subject, or else you might guess it to early :P.

dst came closest, for now. The reason why it's not a

fire

, is because of the last sentence.

When there is to much air, the fire goes out, which means the fire is dead, not in a foul mood. This is a big hint and I do expect you to get it right this time :) If you still don't get it, there is a link between the 2nd and the last sentence.

lol

is it a candle?

Sorry black scythe, he's right.

Fire is just a chemical reaction, but can be seen as all consuming (try breathing near a flame :)) I mean it's still a riddle, so most things were done in a metaphore.

If someone doesn't understand how one or more sentences are linked to the candle I'd be happy to explain. :)

If anyone wants I could post another riddle, but remember this was just an easy one :P (even though it took you 2 days :). (according to my standards, which are high... :(

**Edit** Added spoiler bars, in case anyone still wants to guess the correct answer to the riddle.

I have another one/two. One of mine and one classical one :)

Some of you may know the classical one, so here it is:

The rich need me.

The poor have me.

If I am to be eaten a lot,

Then he in time, shall surely rot.

What am I?

Here's mine :)

Hear me child for what I am.

I am as cold as day and night.

I have lived in what I am.

Near my kin and we'll give flight.

Good luck with this one :)

Besides it's on the forum and for a multitude of people, so you can all work together for days to come :)
