For those new to the game, one person gives a riddle and the person who solves first it gets to write a new one. Since I correctly answered that a door is not a door when it is a vase, I'm up first:

That would depend on whether you are talking about the actual you, or any one of your characters in LOM or elsewhere. If you are talking about the actual you, I assume nobody did (at least, I hope so... I mean, if you were dead, then your brain would not function and you would not be able to write all the smarter stuff you write, but then again, the riddle did not need a large amount of brain power to think up).
If you are talking about any fictional character, made up by you or someone else, then my best guess would be Steven the Bull Knight. You made a big point in a recent moc of him having killed several people.
If you are talking about someone historical, I would go with Brutus, because yesterday was Ides of March.

Aging? It starts out hollow but grows bigger and deeper, you're honored when you're old, young kids want to grow up, aging kills you eventually, and things get harder as you grow older.

Since no one can guess it, although royalty was the closest, The answer is...

The crown of kingship!

See it goes with the Lands of Mythron.

"What is hollow yet is as deep as an ocean"

The crown is just a round band of metal yet has nothing inside but metaphorically it is as deep as an ocean in meaning, honor, power, and all that.

"It is full of honor and greatness"

The crown of kingship gives its wearer all the honor and greatness of a king.

"It is what everyone wishes to have"

Nobles, princes, queens, peasants, and pretty much everyone would want it.

"Yet the ones who gain it are eaten away by it"

The people who get the crown of kingship end up losing who they are because all the false ideas of themselves that the crown gives them "eat away" who they were.

"it brings joy yet also great sorrow and hardship"

Those who are crowned king get all the riches and good things that come with it, but they also gain all the hard decisions and tough experiences that are part of being a king.

"young men take it, but with it grow old"

Young princes who are put on the throne soon become old in wisdom and the things of the world through their experiences during their reign.

I hope that answers the riddle. ~Brick you were the closest with royalty, so since you were the closest, I guess it is your turn.

A man was to be sentenced, and the judge told him, "You may make a statement. If it is true, I'll sentence you to four years in prison. If it is false, I'll sentence you to six years in prison." After the man made his statement, the judge decided to let him go free. What did the man say?

Just made this up-


You and a fellow prisoner are brought into a dim, cold jail cell. You must tell your secrets or drink from at least one of the 6 glasses set before you.
3 contain poison and 3 have the antidotes, but each antidote cures only one of the poisons. You do not know which is which but as they add three colors, turning the contents of 2 blue, 2 red, and 2 yellow, they inform you that one color contains only poison, another only antidotes, and the last contains 1 of each.
Your fellow prisoner goes first, drinks a red and dies while the interrogator drinks a yellow and is just fine.
Now it's your turn. You sit before a fresh set of cups with exactly the same arrangement and colors as before.

It's like a stop light. I would not drink the red because it clearly says "Stop! Do not drink!" You take the yellow and the blue, mix them together which makes green, then you drink. Is that correct?

No, but interesting thoughts! You might be on to something.

I've come up with three potential answers:
- Drink all of the potions and let all of the antidotes counter all of the potions.
- Tell your secrets and drink none of them.
- Pick one at random and eat a bezoar after.

The obvious correct answer, however, is to drink from the same bottle the jailer did. Since the bottles are in the same order, it's no mystery.

But let's assume these glasses are full, you cannot mix the chemicals. But let's say you drink the red position and it's poisonous. Then you reach for the blue potion which happens to be the poisoned half of the poison/antidote combination. BY the time you reached for what could be an antidote, you would roll over and die.

Yes, but he could also take a cup from the color with a poison and an antidote.

In which case drinking the rest of the drinks would result in 3 poisons+2 antidotes=death in any order. The problem is he takes one of the antipodes which means death if you drink all of them. Or perhaps the interrogator was the friend that drank one, and then rolled over and died. In witch case drinking all of the drinks would save you.

It just dawned on me that your friend did drink the poison, and then the interrogator drank an antidote. So theres 2 outcomes as to which drinks have been drank.

1. The prisoner drank the poisoned half of the half poison/half cure combination, and the guard drank the other half.

2. The prisoner drank the color which only represents poison, and the guard drank the color which only represents antidote.

So I'll go with whatever color the guard drank.
Sorry if that made no sense.

Now it's your turn. You sit before a fresh set of cups with exactly the same arrangement and colors as before.
What do you drink?

So, this was already solved, but I thought I should gather possible combinations of what the drinks could have been...

1: Red is poison, blue is antidote, yellow is half-half
2: Red is poison, blue is half-half, yellow is antidote
3: Red is half half, blue is poison, yellow is antidote

EDIT: Yes, there are 3 other combinations, but they all involve either red as both antidote or yellow as both poison, and that is not right, based on the facts that of the riddle...

Based on those chances, the order of safety probability is: Yellow is the least dangerous, followed by blue, followed by red. There is, so to speak, a 5/6 chance of surviving with yellow, a 3/6 chance with blue, and a 1/6 chance with red. I would definitely go for the yellow.

5 is the last digit, fifty makes up the other two. I see that Adam already solved it, but I wanted to take a shot at it anyway.

There are 3 black hats and 2 white hats in a box. Three men (we will call them Tom, Bob, and Bill) each reach into the box and place one of the hats on his own head. They cannot see what color hat they have chosen. The men are situated in a way that Tom can see the hats on Bob and Bill's heads, Bob can only see the hat on Bill's head and Bill cannot see any hats. When Tom is asked if he knows the color of the hat he is wearing, he says no. When Bob is asked if he knows the color of the hat he is wearing he says no. When Bill is asked if he knows the color of the hat he is wearing he says yes and he is correct. What color hat and how can this be? There is no play on words and there are no tricks.

Bill is wearing a black hat. If Tom cannot tell what color of hat he is wearing and he can see the other two people, then they must not be wearing the only two white hats because that would mean that Tom was definitely wearing a black hat. Bob can only see Bill's hat, but he can also hear Tom's statement, so he knows that there can be at most one white hat on his head or Bill's head. He can't tell the color of his hat, however, so that means that Bill cannot be wearing the only possible white hat, which informs Bill that Bill is wearing a black hat.

Human life naturally leads to death. We have been programmed by evolution, God, Gods, Prometheus or whoever/whatever is responsible for our forms to die. Many animals, especially reptiles, are practically immortal - they naturally reach maturity and continue onward. Humans and mammals have a number of genetic causes for aging, from the limited supplies of telomerase we have to cap our chromosomes to the decay of teeth, hair and the mind. As sad as it sounds, our species as a whole is best served by the renewal of its population. Even if we were not cursed in this manner, death is inevitable - the universe is ending, haven't you heard?
