    ok ya'll might have heard this one before, but here it goes.

    In the morning, it walks on 4 legs
    In the afternoon, it walks on 2 legs
    At night it walks on 3 legs.


    The riddle is a metaphor of something bigger...

    What weights more, one pound of feathers or one pound of gold?

    well, at risk of being pwned again, is that the answer or the thing the answer represents?

    You're refering to the currency, are you not?

    I doubt you could get a lb of gold with a single english pound, so I'll say the feathers.

    Walk over a bridge with pipes running overhead?

    err, if i remeber correctly it's the pound of feathers. something to do with there being two systems of defining the pound.

    depends if your name is Manuel or not :)

    the answer to my riddle was in fact "sand", as you can throw sand in someone's eyes to blind them, melt sand to make glasses to help them to see, and use sand for concrete (strong buildings) while sandstorms tear them down.

    so dance away maki43 :cooldude:

    ooh! .. a snake!
