1. What part of a car travels farther than any other part?

The keys, as you'll take them with you upon leaving the car.

2. How do you get down off an elephant?

For the last time, Midi, you don't get down off of elephants. Elephants don't have feathers, down, pinion, or otherwise.

he means how do you dismount an elephant (lol that sounds wrong)

Not if he's going for the old joke. "How do you get down off an elephant?" "You don't. You get down off a duck."

jbennet for on time think THINK!!!! instead of reading Microsoft license e agreement :P

don't get it.

down means feathers - you get down pillows and down jackets for example

Oh. Didn't know that. ok, hehe that's funny. :)

Goes to sleep while still light outside, I'd bet.

bingo

So what's the answer to the roman numeral riddle?

Make nineteen minus one equal twenty.

You are right about the car keys and the duck.

Use string processing to take away the I.
IXX - I = XX

What's round on both ends and high in the middle.

How many grooves are on the average phonograph record?

don't limit yourself to think in adding and subtracting...

the answer is:

For the last time, Midi, you don't get down off of elephants. Elephants don't have feathers, down, pinion, or otherwise.

Sorry, I missed the first one. Did you edit it into the post while I was reading the unedited version?

On the VII = I, try moving the left leg of the V between the two Is:

II-I = I

Now, can you anagram this phrase so it makes another phrase which is equal to its value?

"eleven plus two"

Now, can you anagram this phrase so it makes another phrase which is equal to its value?

"eleven plus two"

No. :D

Actually I think XIX is nineteen in roman numerals and take out the one in the middle to get twenty (XX).


There are two grooves on a record.

What's round on both ends and high in the middle.

Ohio.

How many grooves are on the average phonograph record?

Assuming a normal two-sided record, then I'm going with Sk8 on this one. Each side would have a single massive spiraled groove running from the rim to the inner edge.

And on the Anagram:

Eleven plus two: 3 e's, 2 l's, 1 v, 1 n, 1 p, 1 u, 1 s, 1 t, 1 w, and 1 o.

Shuffle these around, and you end up with the following: (Note: Plus doesn't need to be shuffled)
______ plus ___
__e__e plus __e
__el_e plus __e
__elve plus __e
__elve plus _ne
T_elve plus _ne
Twelve plus _ne
Twelve plus one.

We've been running through the more well-known type, let's try a slightly harder riddle. This one went unanswered in the original riddle game thread...happy solving.

I bear meaning within meaning within meaning.

Some use me for amusement. For others, to
learn more of me may be the difference
between life and death.

I am ancient, and yet often newly-born.

My secrets may be revealed not to the
strong, or the swift, or to the brave,
but to those who posses wisdom or
cunning will I make myself known.

And I dwell close to you, much closer
than you would think.

What am I?

You are the driver on a bus. The bus starts off empty. At the first stop, three people get on. At the second stop, 6 people get on. At the third stop, 2 people get off and one person gets on. At the fourth stop, 4 people get off and 7 people get on. At the fifth stop, 2 people get off. At the sixth stop, 3 people get off and 10 people get on.

What is the bus driver's name?

That one's tough (EnderX's riddle). But those are the kind of riddles that I like.

What is the bus driver's name?

This one works much better when spoken than when written. In written format, it's possible to go back and look at the phrasing again.

And, technically, the answer is environmental variable $YOU, as it will differ for each viewer. In my case, $YOU = 'EnderX'.
