Best Riddle Solver, News, and Other Announcements


Hello friends,

This post does not contain a riddle. It is one of those rare posts (the first actually) containing some news and announcements about what’s been going on and what’s bound to happen.

The first piece of news is that we’re going to implement a star system for the riddle solvers. The top solvers will be displayed on the sidebar, in two categories: All time best solvers, and The last month’s best solvers. There will be a reward of three copper stars for the first person guessing the correct answer without any hints. If there are hints, the solver will get one copper star. One hundred copper stars will be the equivalent of one silver star. For those who want to enter the contest, the stars for the correct answers will be collected retroactively, provided you used the same email address or site address when answering. Yes this means that if along the years you were the first to solve 10 riddles, without hints, you start with thirty copper stars to your name :) .

The second piece of news is that, to kick start this properly, we’ll be having a special reward of fifty copper stars for whomever is the first to guess to correct answer to The Frankenstein Riddle. There will be no hints for that riddle for a long time. You are allowed to consult with other geek friends, to forward them the riddle (or this message), you are allowed to use wikipedia, google and any other site, you are allowed to mind probe me to get the answer out, you are allowed everything :) .

To be part of this star contest / system, and, if you have solved riddles before, to claim your stars, you must enlist by commenting on this post. For starters, we’re trying to keep things simple, so we won’t be creating accounts and passwords and the like to identify that you are you. That may change in the future, but there are no plans for now.

The third piece of news is that, as some of you may have noticed, I’ve less than a month ago launched a brand new discussion forum for people seeking happiness. The idea is to share “happiness hacks”, things that work and things that don’t work. I invite you to stop by, the place is called The Happiness Beacon, and its address is http://www.happinessbeacon.com/. Once there, you can click the “New visitors” button to get a short introduction to the site. There are already more than 30 articles (topics) about how to achieve genuine happiness.

Thank you for reading this far :) . Please forward this or share it with your friends who might be interested either in the geek riddles, or may know the answer to the Frankenstein Riddle, or may want to read or share some happiness tips.

Have a great week!
Gec (The Geek Riddler)

I have been made since civillizations began
From various materials
Turned over again and again
Many people will see the same
There are more of us now
And places where we live
We are lent out
To people to borrow
What am I?

Hey Keeley,

Although they say money isn’t always the answer, I think it is in this case :) .

Cheers!

I AM BORN IN THE FOREST
AND MY BROTHERS ARE TREES.

IF YOU RELEASE ME IN THE WIND
I WILL DRIFT WITH EASE.

I AM ALMOST EVERY COLOR
AND I CAN MAKE YOU COLOR BLIND.

ANYTIME YOU GET INTO A JAM IT’S
ME ON YOUR MIND.

I AM NOT A CRIMINAL
BUT I AM KEPT UNDER LOCK AND KEY.

MARK YOUR X TWICE AND HERE I BE!!

WHAT AM I??????
