One dollar...

The first is the first of the first of you.
The second and the third are zero two,

The last is the first of the last of you.

Now tell me please who are you?

This is an exerpt from a book entitled, Lahore - A Sentimental Journey written by Pran Neville. It is his account of growing up in Lahore in the 1930's and 40's.

One dollar goes to anyone who can tell me the answer... all the clues are in front of you.


I'm white, I'm round
But I'm not always around.

Sometimes I'm half
Sometimes I'm whole
Sometimes a slice of me is all you'll know.

Sometime I'm light
Sometimes I'm dark
Sometimes I'm both.

Everyone wants to walk on me
But only a happy few every have.

What am I?


I'm sometimes white,
Although sometimes I'm black.
I take you there,
But never bring you back.
What am I?


With pointed fangs it sits in wait,
With piercing force its doles out fate,
Over bloodless victims proclaiming its might,
Eternally joining in a single bite.
What am I?


I never was, am always to be,
No one ever saw me, nor ever will
And yet I am the confidence of all
To live and breath on this terrestrial ball.
What am I?


  1. I've already dropped you a hint...

    If I give you another one, it's only worth 50 cents.

    Let me know if you need another hint.

    C'mon you left side non linear thinkers... ;)

  2. And the prize goes to the only man I know who is left sided and thinking...

    Bravo... a congratulations is in order. Thank you Blair for ability to think the way you do.

    Now this is the last time I'm going to tell you... go to law school ;)

  3. thanks homeboy. your advice is duly noted. that was fun. let's try another?

  4. Again... with the blue ribbon ;)

    That last one was from the Transporter 2. I just happened to have it in the collection...

    I'll try and make it a little bit more difficult this time ;)

  5. round three - a hearse.

    i'm beginning to wonder if there is any riddle i cannot solve! ;) give me another one, then i will counter with one or two for you. see if you can shake the cobwebs off the 'left side' and get it working. i know it's been a while for you!

  6. I'm beginning to wonder the same thing ;)

    The left coast hasn't been visited in a while... let's dust it off.

  7. round 4 - a stapler. sorry i've been busy.

  8. When one does not know what it is, then it is something;
    but when one knows what it is, then it is nothing.

    What is it?

  9. round five (for five) : tomorrow.


Thank you for your contribution... may blessings be upon you ;)
