Favorite Self-Authored Riddles?

  1. Jan 13, 2015 #1
    Hi all,

    I love riddles and occasionally try to write them. Here's one that I like because it rhymes (although it's super easy).

    Small as a pebble, deadly as a boulder
    Used by the rebel, but mostly by the soldier
    What am I?
    Have you made any riddles that you'd be willing to share?

    The answer is a grenade. Easy but nice riddle.
    Let me try!
    I hide the hole and cut the sheet
    I form when the mass goes like a fleet
    I swallow things and they give heat
    Now tell what am I but with no cheat
    (Wow man...I didn't know I'm this good at it!!!)

    Yeah, that's right. I mostly worried about aesthetics and so it wasn't hard. It gave too much information.

    OK, I think I try once more.

    Although everyone says we can't double
    Our heavy friends can make us a couple
    If its cold enough, we form and pile on
    We roam freely, we get lights on
    We make you happy, since guys don't resist
    Now tell what we are, yeah we insist

    Yeah, that's better. I always confuse words with similar meanings. So I don't get the size of it the first time I hear pebble!

    Electron?
    Pauli exclusion, fermionic condensate, conduction and electricity. Not sure about the heavy friends, though I am guessing it refers to spin orbital coupling

    No, but near!
    You're missing two key points, and the heavy friends is one of them.

    With strong emotion, I part ways
    From what beholds the clouds and waves
    A touch of sadness, a touch of pain
    The way to move me's hard to feign
