    This is my submission
    __


    I am
    big and small
    old and young
    short and tall
    between and among

    I am
    dark and light
    all and none
    loose and tight
    three, two, and one

    I am
    here and there
    butter and bread
    common and rare
    alive and dead

    But I will never hurt you.

    What am I?

    I can't think of a good one yet so here is one for fun:
    Read and try to solve the riddle before looking at the spoiler answer...

    Where do Vanished objects go?
    Into Nonbeing, which is to say, everything

    I am everything death isn't, yet I am nothing of life. What am I?
    Nothing

    I am small, but I can cause great devastation and fill a whole room. I can fade away, but I can never die.
    Fire
    *I think this one sucks... lol

    Ok, off to thinking of a riddle for submission!

    (Did I tell you I got stitches on my lip and inside my mouth today?)

    Tell me how hard you think these are, if you actually tried to solve them.

    Here is my submission:

    A man with quite a bit of money was driving down a road, but by the time he got to his hotel, he was out of money.

    How can this be?


    Short, simple, you should be able to figure this out pretty quick. (No it has nothing to do with gas prices)

    I had a riddle contest with some friends not to long ago :D
    Here are some:

    How far can one run into the forest?

    A poor person is sitting next to a road, when a rich woman passes and gives the poor person a dollar. This rich woman is the poor person's sister, yet the poor person is not her sister. How can this be?

    A man grabs a box of matches and walks into a dark room. The room contains a candle, a oil lamp, and a fireplace. What will the man light first?

    Halfway; the poor one is her brother; the match.

    All good riddles with a single good (albeit simple) answer. I enjoy riddles that use common sense to discover the solution, so hats off.
