Can you work this out?

What is greater than God,
More evil than the devil,
The poor have it,
The rich need it,
And if you eat it, you'll die?

I'll give you until Monday 16 January to work it out.

NOTHING!!

or maybe its

NEED!!!

Or maybe its A REALLY GOOD TACO TRUCK!!!!!!!!!!
You know those trucks that are open at like 10 or 11 pm that sit on the
side of the road selling tacos , like 5 for 2 bucks?

Or am i just guessing?

I do not believe it.

You got it! The answer was "nothing".

Nothing is greater than God,
Nothing is more evil than the Devil,
The poor have nothing,
The rich need noting,
And if you eat nothing, you will die.

Good job.

When asked this riddle, 80% of kindergarten kids got the answer, compared to 17% of Stanford University seniors.

WOOHOO!!!!!!!! Lay another on us DUDE!

Though I still think that "taco Truck" should qualify as close enough

Its funny about the 80% of kindergardeners! the more time goes on the more complicated things get.

lol. Yeah... the older you become the more complex things are, in our minds, yet often they're simpler than we first assume. It's a crazy World.

Next Riddle

How can you make the following equation true by drawing only one straight line:
5+5+5=550

Can you figure it out?

------------------------------------------------------------------

You have until January 17th.

Draw a line on the first plus sign. This turns it into a 4 the equation then becomes true:
545+5=550

Damn, man. I underestimated the intelligence of the people of ATS.
Good job, WAGD.

Next:

I soar without wings, I see without eyes.
I've traveled the universe to and fro.
I've conquered the world, yet I've never been anywhere but home.
Who am I?

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!

Well done, WAGD's mother.

Hmmm, lemme think...

A woman shoots her husband.
Then she holds him under water for over 5 minutes.
Finally, she hangs him.
But 5 minutes later they both go out together and enjoy a wonderful dinner together.
How can this be?

posted on Jan, 15 2006 @ 07:36 AM
TO EASY

the woman took a picture of her husband put it under water to develop it and hung it out to dry then had the dinner
