The other thread had grown too fat, time for a new one has come!

RULES:
This is fairly simple, someone posts a Riddle... The first one who 'cracks' the Riddle can post his own!

===========

The old thread ended open for anyone to post a new riddle... So if you've got one, feel free to post []

I'm not all that great at riddles, but.....

Created once, like mice and men,
From breath it's life is given
It's filled with air, but does not breathe
Knows not death and is not living

Floating gracefully through the air
You can see throght it's heart at a glance
It slowly descends to the ground below
Where, to live, it has no chance.

Certainly:

Take a five-letter word meaning "having an unpleasant smell." Insert it backward, inside another five-letter word meaning, "having a strong smell." The result will be a ten-letter name of a famous composer.

Who is it?

Forgive me if this has been posted before. I don't check the Riddle thread very often. []

Robert celebrated his birthday on one day; two days later his older twin brother, Lewis, celebrated his birthday. How could this be?

They were both born on the same day - but Lewis was in a coma until two days afterwards, so didn't get round to celebrating until their birthday was over.

I give up.

Does the answer have to do with countries and different time zones?

Or bizarre and unethical fertility treatments?

It's possible that the birth of these blokes happened before those things were brought into society.
