Just to clarify you must give me a riddle as well...

I sink but do not drown, I smile and frown, I spend my days where you cannot, and I always have a target to get... what am I?

Answer... I look forward to your answer and my riddle. We have no riddles in the final round...

Ok. This is interesting but not obvious. Ill have to examine each line It gather clues.


I sink but do not drown,

Well this implies that the subject of this riddle seems to sink into something, perhaps water. The fact it doesn't drown could be because it is a non living object.

I smile and frown,

This line hints at the fact the subject seems to have a face or at least resembles these facial expressions. I cannot gather much from this yet. I will return to it when I gather more information.

I spend my days where most cannot,

Now it seems that if the subject does submerge in an unspecified medium, it must be somewhere that people cannot be there for a long time.

I always have a target to get,

Now I get the impression that the subject has been in the medium looking for something. This is indeed very interesting.

After thinking over the lines the answer I put forward is .... A FISHING HOOK

Here are my reasons:


- A Fishing hook, after being cast is left to sink into the water but doesn't drown as it is a inanimate object. This means it can sink without ever drowning
- The fishing hook also resembles a smile and a frown at different angles due to it's shape. This is why they smile and frown.
- Fishing hooks, being submerged in water are in places where we cannot stay for a long time.
- Now the fishing hooks are submerged for one reason, to catch fish. This is a target that they seek.

Now I will give you my riddle:

I have one, you have one.
If you remove the first letter, a bit remains.
If you remove the second, bit still remains.
After much trying, you might be able to remove the third one also, but it remains.
It dies hard!

I have one, you have one.

This is stating if you have it, you have it, making it an animate object or something that you can have like a emotion.

If you remove the first letter, a bit remains.

a_bit litterally meaning you will have the letters a-b-i-t.

If you remove the second, bit still remains.

Again, the word bit will remain there

After much trying, you might be able to remove the third one also, but it remains.

Again stating that the word it will remane

It dies hard!

The answer is the word and thing habit. my riddle will be



It has a head and a tail, but not any arms nor legs, it is also brown...

Well I have nothing to go off of, so I therefor I win?

If anything answer to riddles then,

This is an unusual paragraph. I'm curious how quickly you can find out what is so unusual about it. It looks so plain you would think nothing was wrong with it. In fact, nothing is wrong with it! It is unusual though. Study it, and think about it, but you still may not find anything odd. But if you work at it a bit, you might find out! Try to do so without any coaching! You probably won't, at first, find anything particularly odd or unusual or in any way dissimilar to any ordinary composition. That is not at all surprising, for it is no strain to accomplish in so short a paragraph a stunt similar to that which an author did throughout all of his book, without spoiling a good writing job, and it was no small book at that. By studying this paragraph assiduously, you will shortly, I trust, know what is its distinguishing oddity. Upon locating that "mark of distinction," you will probably doubt my story of this author and his book of similar unusuality throughout. It is commonly known among book-conscious folk and proof of it is still around.

The answer is that the horse's name was friday, not the days he went in or out of the town.

Here is the riddle I was going to post for round 3:

Why wasn't Babra, Josaphine and Wilfred put into jail after killing many civillians,
