Very funny Joe . And just for reference, when you refer to another member in MT in a post, you must put their name in bold. [] Just a reminder.

It's usually done for easy finding, but I don't think it's a MUST.

Clue 1: They key is in the punctuation - a word DOT lots of other words...

Clue 2: It is something we use, but Arien uses it the most and in a different context.

Clue 3: You've been circling around the answer for a while now...

OK, one more clue before I actually hand the answer to you on a plate.

The content of the words is completely irrelevant to the answer.

ok, this should be easy for all of you smart MTers. and most of you prolly already know the answer, but here goes anyway.

Mom, Dad, and 2 kids have come to a river, and they find a boat. It is small and can only carry one adult or 2 kids at a time. Both kids are good rowers, but how can the whole family reach the other side of the river?

This should do it:

Both of the kids cross, and one returns.

One parent crosses, and the other child returns with the boat.

Both children cross again, and one returns with the boat.

The remaining adult crosses, and the child who was on the far side returns.

Both children cross.

Bother - now I've got to think of a riddle. []

Let's try this:

In me are philoshopy, poetry, lore.
In me are the tales and the learning of yore.
But in what is slimy and wet you will find me
And if I'm in cloth it is ruined.

Tanj is correct, and Flame's explanation is also correct.

Please give us the next riddle, Tanj! []

there should be a rule that anyone who does not take their turn in 3 days will automatically be forefeited of their turns and someone else goes.
