Debate Rounds (5)
Each person will post one riddle and answer the previous riddle from the opposition in each argument section. Riddles do not have to be original, and the answer must be evident in the riddle, i.e. if the person does not get it, after being told the answer, they would go "OH, I get it." No random answers to unrelated questions. Most right answers wins! No google searching for non-original riddle answers. Riddles must be between 5-40 words (short). First round is for acceptance, next three rounds are for riddles, last round pro answers to previous riddle, does not ask new riddle, battle is over. Con posts no argument for final round, so that both sides ask/answer three riddles. Good luck!
Here is your first riddle:
Alone I am 24th, with a friend I am 20. Another friend and I am unclean. What am I?
I am clear, concise, responsive, bent. I can be the tempest, the harbinger of death, yet I am also the wellspring of the soul.
This is pretty hard (I think), but still possible. Good Luck!
If this is not the answer, here is some of my reasoning, maybe so that you could make your riddle better than it it (it was allready quite hard): Water is clear, water is easy to manipulate (responsive) and enacts forces upon forces that act upon it (surface tension) (responsive), the molecular geometry of the water molecule is bent. Tempest is a synonym for hurricane. Wellspring is the original source, souls, synonomous with human life, cannot exist without water.
Also, the answer to the first riddle is The letter/roman numeral X if anyone else was reading this debate and wanted to know the answer.
Your second riddle: (an easier one)
Two women were on vacation. They are found dead in a cabin on the side of a mountain. There was obviously a fire, but that's not how they died. What happened?
I believe the answer is that fell to their death/died from impact. They were on vacation (flying to destination), in a cabin (the part of an airplane in which the passengers sit) http://www.merriam-webster.com..., and the fire in the plane/engine, is why they crashed.
Now my riddle, a bit harder than before:
Infinity won, and 5 circlets. Two hands we were gifted. The Book of the Earth, Fire, Water, Air.
TherE are Many strategieS in Many liFestyles.
To that am I referring too?
I'm going to go with "Yes" as my answer. Reasoning: To that am I referring too? Has only two answers, yes or no, because the only definition of the word "too" that makes sense here is as a synonym for in addition, or also. Unless we are using the old english too, which I do not believe is the case, since the rest of your riddle is in plain english. Why yes and not no? I guessed. I like 50-50 odds.
Unless of course, this was a typo, in which case the riddle should be thrown out.
Here is your third riddle (one of my own)
Clothed in purity i stand, motionless but moving, and not on solid ground. Next to me are more who dare, likewise clothed in heavy air.
Who am I?
I believe the answer to your riddle is a cloud. My thinking: purity is associated with white, clouds look to be standing still, but they are actually moving. Clouds are composed of solid, liquid, and gas, and thus heavier than the air around them.
We hurt without moving. We poison without touching. We bear the truth and the lies. We are not to be judged by our size.What are we?
My answer: words?
I was torn between "books" and "words", I decided you do kind of touch books. Neither should be judged by size, both can bear the truth and lies.
Unless I got that one right, I believe we are still tied at 1 correct answer apiece, and if we are to throw out the one riddle with a typo, there is no way for me to give you a new riddle without having less riddles myself, so at this point, the debate is over. Thank you so much for a very fun debate!
