Answer:
A really, REALLY extremely good minion.

That, or a religious fanatic (Both Islam and Christian religions show this kind of act)

So, anyone who is willing to make a 'leap of faith', pun intended?

Also, what's in my pocket?



...that can be found in most peoples pockets as well?

Tiyev, actually, I meant it literally. History has shown that certain religious fanatics really leaped from the cliff 'cause they believed that's what God wanted them to do.

Oh, and I guess:
-Cellphone
-IPhone
-Wallet
-Keys
-Handcuffs
-100g of C4
-a dollar coin
-screwdriver
-Swishknife

...Yeah, that's my answer.

Well, seams are a part of the pocket. So close enough. The answer was lint.

Well, I don't have my keys. wallet, or cellphone in my pocket all the time, like when I typed this, but decent items to geuss. But an I Phone, plenty of people don't have. And C4, that silly, or dangerous. A dollar coin, those are rare. Handcuffs, only if you're some sort of cop. A screwdriver if your mechanically inclined and/or employed, sonic if your a certain timelord chap I sometime chance to hear things about...

It can be your greatest ally or worst enemy
It can be a bliss or curse
Nearly always it will come out of nowhere
and follow you even from beyond death

What is it?

Riddle me this

Postby SoulReka » Mon Jan 30, 2012 1:11 am

I am strongest when you see me as round, but I am often viewed in other forms. I lift & drop the sea with my tremendous strength, and a man with a name like 'powerful bicep' was the first to tread on me. What am I?

Is the game officially over? It seems that way. Or does it? Dun Dun DUN!

Riddle me this:

What waits, but never complains,
hides, but doesn't sneak around,
can imprison, harm, or kill,
but cannot make the 1st move?

The queen can 'kill' sure, and maybe from a certain perspective, imprison, but that is not the answer. Plus only the pawns and knights can make a first move...

...I have to answer something so cheesy as "truth".

-----

For my own, I present a few of maybe rather cryptic ones (yes, making translations is annoying):

1: "Splinters of time
under our soul's skin
Slowly rotting away
but never truly pulled out"

-

2: "Legion of travelers
seeing it all, telling it all
Everywhere, every time
but never knowing anything themselves"

-

3: "Dancers, pairs of five
skipping, jumping and hitting
Stage set in black and white
but perceived only by one"

Well, that's not the answer I had in mind, but it does fit in well with my clues. So you haven't guessed it, but you'd get a point for that...

I'm going to try 'memories' first. And maybe 'our senses' as my second guess.
