Don't Know What That Was For

Some of you saw the riddle I just deleted. Classic, about how many legs over a day. Answer is human. Everybody knows this. Should be changed, though. Nowadays old people have six legs. Walkers, not canes.

Don't know how it got here. Maybe the laptop wasn't as broken as it looked. A tech nerd could maybe fix it up and it'd still be logged in. Don't know. Or they guessed my password. Not hard. Just no point. No identity to steal. Changed the password anyway.

More wondering why than how, myself. What did I do to deserve an easy riddle? Guessing it was somebody He ruined. Messed up caps and all. Maybe it was bandit guy himself. Reminding me he's human too? Except I didn't forget. Not like some people.

Maybe you have better ideas.

All I've got to say. Wanted to let you know I saw it and deleted it. And changed the password. Won't happen again.


  1. Awww I do enjoy a good riddle. Heheh Try this,

    "Three guests check into a hotel room. The clerk says the bill is $30, so each guest pays $10. Later the clerk realizes the bill should only be $25. To rectify this, he gives the bellhop $5 to return to the guests.

    On the way to the room, the bellhop realizes that he cannot divide the money equally. As the guests didn't know the total of the revised bill, the bellhop decides to just give each guest $1 and keep $2 for himself.

    Now that each of the guests has been given $1 back, each has paid $9, bringing the total paid to $27. The bellhop has $2.

    If the guests originally handed over $30, what happened to the remaining $1?"

  2. I still have the riddle in my google reader. It keeps posts forever... that's how I know that the riddle did not end in a who, but in a where. It asked "where am I."

    I don't understand the significance, but I think it *is* significant.

  3. Mystery's right. It ended in Where. I saw it. That... sounds ominous.

  4. And I replied to it. It does sound ominous.

    And Anarchitect, the missing $1 is in the clerk's cash register. Along with the other $24. :)

  5. Missed that entirely. Missed your comment too, Lucas. That at least was still in my email.

    You might be right, about Earth. Or maybe it's the Isle of Man? Maybe Thebes, even. Where the Sphinx asked that riddle.

    Or the riddle is unimportant. Only asking me where they are. Don't know. Just like everything else.
