Ok. Nobody voted the last one I did like this but i've read a couple neat little riddle/puzzlers like this , would like to try it again.

I'll put my riddle/puzzle forward below, you answer, then post yours. I'll answer, you tell me if I got it right or wrong in the last round.


Ok. A simple one to start off, i'm more interested in my oponent's riddle.


Which is correct: "The whites of an egg are yolks."
Or
"The whites of an egg is yolks?"

Con

Both are incorrect, the yolk is the yellow part of the egg.

Time for an easy riddle inspired from the Hobbit:

What is in my pocket?

I guess it makes a big difference when I choose to answer you.

In the hobbit I think he guesses hands and string and then nothing? I think the hobbit actually has the famous Ring.

Not sure there's any way for me to guess that from here. There is almost certainly Air in your pocket, as well as small particles of whatever you've had on your hands, small bits of lint, food, dirt. And various organic matter.

I guess if I give a weak riddle I deserve a weak riddle, I had an awesome one earlier and the guy missed it.

Maybe next time i'll do a few rounds.

Well, my answer was in the same vein as yours. Your answer was false, I don't HAVE pockets as I'm wearing shorts without pockets. Good debate though :)

Riddle - "A question intentionally phrased to require ingenuity in ascertaining its answer." What Pro and Con posted both appear to meet the definition of riddle. Pro's riddle requires only ingenuity to solve. Con's riddle requires ingenuity and luck. Making luck a component of the riddle isn't a sporting way to play, but it meets the definition of riddle, and doesn't violate any of Pro's terms.

Convincing argument points go to Con.
Conduct points go to Pro.

Pro, I won't counter imabench because his vote is sincere and consistent with your terms. I sympathize with your situation. I suggest spending a few moments to write a definition or riddle you can use in future debates, and associate clear consequences with not meeting that definition.
