Now i think number 5 of the riddles was perhaps too hard to solve. Perhaps a small (big!) hint will help you

5. I live above a star, but do not burn.
I have 11 friends that do not turn.
My initials are PRS.
What am I?

Have you ever tried to take a look on the number block of your telefon?

I will give you some new riddles, when this one is solved

So i think no one will solve this. Here´s the solution:
It´s the "7" on the numberblock of your telephone

And as i promised, here are some new riddles for you:


1. When I am filled I can point the way.
When I am empty, nothing moves me.
I have two skins - One without and one within.
What am I?

2. Pronounced as one letter,
But look and you'll see,
That really I'm written with three.
I'm read from both ends,
The same either way.
What am I?

3. They call me a man, but I'll never have a wife.
I was given a body, but not given life.
They made me a mouth, but didn't give me breath.
Water gives me life and sun brings me death.
What am I?

4. If you wrote all of the numbers from 300 to 400 on a piece of paper, how many times would you have written the number 3?

5. What word, expression, or name is depicted below?
GR12"AVE


Now think and solve !

Arrow.

Some riddles here:

A.
The chill of its death,
You may soon mourn.
But though it dies,
It cannot be born.

B.
Though easy to spot,
when allowed to plume,
It is hard to see,
When held in a room.

C.
Today he is there to trip you up,
And he will torture you tomorrow.
Yet he is also there to ease the pain,
When you are lost in grief and sorrow.

D.
It can hold you,
But you cannot hold it.
And the more you remove,
The bigger it will get.

E.
It can pierce the best armor,
And make swords crumble with a rub.
Yet for all its power,
It can't harm a club.

F.
With this one thing alone,
you will have defeated
even the strongest foe.

G.
He got it in the woods and
brought it home in his hand
because he couldn't find it.
The more he looked for it the
more he felt it. When he finally
found it he threw it away.

H.
It can move over water,
But cannot fly.
It can move under water,
But stay quite dry.

I.
Has tongue,
But cannot talk.
Runs,
But cannot walk.

J.
We don't need wine,
We don't need meat.
We have sharp teeth,
But cannot eat.

K.
It stands while others sit.
It groans when it is too full.
It has four legs, but cannot run.

L.
It goes past gates,
but asks no one's leave.
It runs clear around castles,
without taking a step.

M.
Never resting, never still.
Moving silently, hill to hill.
It does not walk, run or trot,
All is cool where it is not.

N.
Passed from father to son,
And shared between brothers.
Its importance is unquestioned,
Though it is used more by others.

O.
She has tasteful friends
And tasteless enemies.
Tears are often shed on her behalf,
Yet never has she broken a heart.

P.
Every creature in the world has seen it.
But to their dying day they'll never see
the same one again.

R.
Six legs, two heads,
two hands, one long nose.
Yet he uses only four legs
wherever he goes.

S.
Black when bought.
Red when used.
Grey when thrown away.

T.
It never was before.
It is not now.
Fools wait for it forever.

Those should last for a while.

Quote:
I'm by nature solitary, scarred by iron
and wounded by sword, weary of battle.
I often see the face of war, and fight
hateful enemies; yet I hold no hope
of help being brought to me in battle
Before I'm cut to pieces and perish.
At the city wall sharp-edged swords,
skillfully forged in the flame by smiths,
bite deeply into me.  I must await
a more fearsome encounter; it is not for me
to find a physician on the battlefield,
one of those who heals wounds with herbs.
My sword wounds gape wider and wider;
death blows are dealt me by day and by night.
What am I?


A War Banner?

this is just insane mumbeling, i doubt anyone wants to take a stab at.

As a question, what am I?


He thinks everything is lawless. He only listens to the hand of his owners fist. He speaks:
"Even yet you do not hit me, I will obide to your strength please do not hit me, and give me food, water, and the warmth of your home, and the caring aplaud of your kindness"


"But if you ever stop taking away from me, and we disagree. I might bite your leg.. Walker of beast!"

What is the question, and the awnser?

1. If two's company and three's a crowd, what are four and five?

2. Remove the outside, Cook the inside
  Eat the outside toss the inside,
  what am i?

3. when does
  10+10=10 (hint Think Computers...)

4. A dozen Royals gathered round,
Entertained by two who clowned.
Each King there had servants ten,
Though none of them were also men.
The lowest servant sometimes might,
Defeat the King in a fair fight.
A weapon stout, a priceless jewel,
The beat of life, a farmer's tool.

What speak I of?
