First round con will answer, second round I will state whether con is correct or incorrect. All 7 points go to winner. Good luck!

Riddle:

You always think about me, though I am never remembered. What am I?

That was not the correct answer, though that was a good guess.

The answer to the riddle: Life

You always think about me, though I am never remembered. What am I?

You are always thinking about your life, what is to be done, what you will have to do, and everything in between. Once you are dead you will have no recognition that you ever lived, hence not being "remembered".

While you live your life is the main basis for all thoughts and decisions, but when you die you will be incapable of remembering any of it.

In regard to Cons final round statement which I had thought of including in my second response; All aspects of history, life, and records Are lost to time or the inability of people to record due to either an overwhelming amount of information or simply the end of human existence.

Reasons for voting decision: Life is, in essence, everything (including breathing). Although there are many answers for this, I believe the answer was a good answer and, in reality, the only one. I am almost tempted to vote con because of a simple but complex answer; but I believe con wins because the riddle is unsolved and the answer logical.

Reasons for voting decision: I don't get it. When you hear the answer to a riddle, it ought to chime. You ought to think, "That's it!" Here, the alleged "answer" doesn't seem better than any other answer you could make up. And the justification would work just as well backwards, if you said, "You never think about me but you always remember." In my judgement, the riddle fails, so Con is not obligated to solve it.
