Saw this in an old thread. The rules are that if you answer the riddle then you get to post the next one. simplicity in itself.

ill post the first one.

Three brothers share a family sport:
A non-stop marathon
The oldest one is fat and short
And trudges slowly on
The middle brother's tall and slim
And keeps a steady pace
The youngest runs just like the wind,
Speeding through the race
"He's young in years, we let him run,"
The other brothers say
"'Cause though he's surely number one,
He's second, in a way."


Are you smirt enough?

Firstly whats up with all the riddle threads tonight.

Really doubt its the answer but assuming the other brothers are fattest/slimmest and tallest/shortest he's in the middle (second)?

Yah Hands On A Clock
Running away from this earth.
May it pass away in the beautiful flames that it was created for.
Because when tomorrow fails to come,
today is just not the same.
Inflamed earth.
Roses.
In this hope.
For all i care set it all ablaze.

why thanks darkstar, and nice job with the answer.

I have been many things in my life.
To England I traveled during times of strife.

I owned a printing shop and made its periodicals popular.
Many enjoyed my views and called me a philosopher.

I loved inventing and in the field of science I strove.
Some of my inventions were bifocal eyeglasses, the glass harmonica and even a stove.

Many public offices have I held and served long.
Not the least of which, was reorganizing the postal system and making it strong.

Thanks to my love for travel, debates and tendency to chat.
I earned the title of diplomat.

I spent many times in England, that's a fact.
I defended American rights and fought for repeal of the Stamp Act.

My ability to write and strong belief that all men are created equal caused me to help design.
A Declaration of Independence, on which the original I did sign.

Be original, a thinker, give it a try.
Can you figure out my name; who am I?


An actual person. Are you smyrt enough?

darkstar, you really are good at this arent you!?
fine, this one will stump even you.

I'm in a zoo
But not in a jungle
I rarely come in pairs
But I'm in every puzzle

Some think I'm in a xylophone
But, I most certainly am not
You don't see me with a loan
But very strangely in a zealot

I'm in the magical prison of Azkaban
Well, can't you see?
I'm in the buzz of a fan
But, my oh my what could I be?

Untill you return...

I constantly collide into all the others,
The only one of 16 without colors.
Associated with English and banking and breaking,
The answer is right there for the taking.

Yess sir!! good but loooong and hard. (that didnt sound right)

(Thing 1)
I, at the start, am old
Many centuries I've been told
Used by the Greeks
For counting techniques
After things were bought and sold

Later is when I became known
As an infinite figure, when shown
You've counted my spaces
Over two billion places
And still, my amount is unknown

(Thing 2)
I, too, am not young
I'm almost as old as Thing 1
I'm just a frog
On the natural log
But I can make counting fun

(Thing 1 and Thing 2)
When you combine us two
In the order of Thing 1 and Thing 2
We'll be a baked treat
That's painful to beat
Whether cherry, peach, or aloo


Are you smuhrt enough???

It's pie, isn't it? because pi was used in Greek times and e was in the Greek alphabet, thus making the e almost as old as pi.

Damnit, now I want pie...

but I think in the riddle it's the number e rather than the letter.
...Nothing you've ever...
...Planned on ever turned out...
...The way you planned...


...You're still disappointing them...

yeah, that's probably it.

WROOONNNGG!! its the letter, the first was right.
this one isnt as hard

I am tied up at least once a day
And forced to carry ten nails.
I work diligently without any pay
And follow your many trails.

I do not smell very well
But at least I have many eyes.
I have two tongues but never yell
And I'll bet you know my size.

What am I?

Quote by Broken_Drum
Hmmm...

I hope it hasn't been posted yet but:

30 white horses upon a red hill,
First they chomp,
Then they stomp,
The they stand still.

What are they?

Wan't that in The Hobbit?
