I would guess more black keys, because in addition to the large keys, the smaller sharps and flats are traditionally black keys.

Technically, the tie question could also be answered Mr. Black with a brown tie, Mr. Brown with a green tie and Mr. Green with a black tie.
Not at all, unless you're suggesting that someone would say "By golly, you're right!" to their own observation.
Ok, so theoretically possible, but a bit strange. []

Also, Müsnud,
quote:
Also, given that Susan could probably feel whether a glove was right- or left-handed, she could technically just pull out 7 to ensure a match (all 6 right-handed gloves and one left-handed glove oughtta do it)...
You forget that there are 12 pairs, and thus 12 right-handed gloves, 6 white and 6 black. So if Susan can feel the handedness of a glove, she still needs to pull out 7 right-handed gloves to be certain that she has at least 1 white and 1 black one. Only then any left-handed glove she pulls out will match at least one of the right-handed gloves. So the minimum total she has to pull out is 8.

Oh...hey! Lookie here...

Okay, here's one I just made up...

When my lids are shut I see naught but light,
That is, of course, unless it's night.



EDIT: No guesses? Shall I add some more lines to the riddle?

No Balin, nothing to do with fireflies...

When my lids are shut I see naught but light,
That is, of course, unless it's night.
But purposefully I try to hide
That light from those that dwell inside.

It sounds like a window, or more specifically the curtains/shutters

Excellent!

Sorry for the delay, but I've been preoccupied with girl problems, and it completely slipped my mind.

Why is it so easy to weigh fish?

This is not really a riddle, more of a joke. I know it sucks, but i am hell outta riddles. Hope you enjoy it!

I think it would be a good idea if someone compiled a list of the ten greatest riddles of all time. I'll admit, this request arises partly from my reluctance to go through all the pages of the three 'Riddles in the Dark' threads, but i stand by it.

Something to do with fish having scales... I'll go for "Because they have so many scales [] "

Along SoN's line of reasoning, I'd say the answer is because they come with their own scales.

Sorry,

In light, I'm dark. In darkness I'm gone. When gone for good so am I. What am I?

Oops! Sorry. Uh, let's see. Time to make up another I suppose.

My cry pierces silence.
It wakens thee to hear,
A word from one in absence,
Whispered in your ear.

The radio? - a word from one in absense.

A messanger who doesn't get to deliver his message because he is shot down and his "cries pierce the silence"? []
