    Just for a bit of fun...

    It has a face but no eyes. It has a voice but no head. It shortens distances without travel. It fits into the palm of my hand. What is it?

    The poor have lots of it. The rich don't. Eating it will kill you. What is it?

    Voiceless it cries, wingless it flutters, toothless it bites, mouthless it mutters. ?

    What animal keeps the best time?

    There was a green house.
    Inside the green house there was a white house.
    Inside the white house there was a red house.
    Inside the red house there were lots of babies.

    What fruit does the above describe?

    This one never got answered from way back, but we'll never know if anyone gets it right (thread is locked)

    http://www.uk-learning.net/showthread.php?t=33681

    I seem a thief, it's just a ruse,
    this game I play is of good use,
    no matter how i leap and lag,
    it changes not this game of tag.

    What am I?
    For some reason i seem inclined to say love, this is probably stupid though

    Like I said I've got no idea and we'll never know, as the person who posted it seems to be long gone I've been thinking about it for months and no joy. The best I can come up with is 'a clock'.
    I think it could also be the sun and the moon.

    EDIT: I just read the thread you were referring to. The starter said that it's intangible so it's not a clock. sorry

    Is it not just "time"?

    I woke up thinking about this riddle. Now I think the answer is your reflection instead of a shadow. Comments?
