nightfall and daybreak :)

ok, next one:

Greater than God, More evil than the devil.
The poor have it, the rich don't.
If you eat it you will die.

edit: i just noticed that there is a quite similar one in the beginning of the thread :/

so here is the next one:

I start with the letter e,
I end with the letter e.
I contain only one letter,
Yet I am not the letter e!
What am I?

For the sly among us, here's a rule for this thread: No using Google or other search engines.

You must work out the answers yourself!

I start with the letter e,
I end with the letter e.
I contain only one letter,
Yet I am not the letter e!
I think that

Eye

could also cover it. What i was originally thinking.


Here's another for those impatient for Yoghurts:

There are 2 cops parked along a one-way street looking for traffic violations.
They spot a taxi driver going in the wrong direction, yet they do nothing.
Why?

If he is walking "IN" the street then thats definatly bad regardless of the direction he is going, if he is on the side walk he cant be said to be going in the wrong direction because he is outside the scope of the oneway rule that aplies only to cars on the road. If thats the answer then the Riddle is a very poor one.

Yes the answer is he was walking....

impaler - Walking IN the street isn't illegal here in the UK. I do it all the time (mind generally at about 4am when i'm not that likely to be run down ;) ) and i havn't been "pulled over" here yet.


Not to mention it explicitly states that the cops were looking for traffic violations. A person walking down the middle of a street is NOT a traffic violation.
:p

Tut tut Impaler, you can do better than that can't you? :twisted:


Anyhow seeing as Yoghurt doesn't seem to have produced another one, how's this:


I don't have eyes,
But once I did see.
Once I had thoughts,
But now I'm white and empty.
What am I?
