    I am hot but I need fire, I am tall but I need to jump, I am long but I need to stretch and I am slimy but I need slime, I am full but I need fuel. I end in X.

    What am I?

    Could the answer be a treasure map? Or a quest? With each of the sentences describing the steps needed to get through each stage?

    As for ending with an X, most treasure maps have the treasure located on the map with an "X" symbol.

    Not trying to be racist in any way but is it possibly a "mex," as in the person? All refering to border hopping.

    Ichthys or XTYS, was not a bad first guess where fish are involved.

    A paradox is a statement or group of statements that leads to a contradiction or a situation that defies intuition. And... it ends in "X"
