A question was asked of 100 kindergardeners, and 100 Harvard graduates.

Overwhelmingly, the kindergardeners got it correct, while the Harvard graduates got it wrong.

The question is: "What is greater and more powerful than God, yet more evil and malicious than the Devil?"

If you have heard this before, please dont post the answer, lets see how long it takes for someone to get it right of his or her own merit.

Nice. Theres some more to that but:

Something along the lines of:
A poor man has it,
A rich man wants it,


And one other line, which i forget.

Last line is "and if you eat it you die."

it's greater than god, it's more evil than the devil.
the poor have it, the rich need it.
and if you eat it, you die.

I think that nothing is the answer...
just change it to nothing =>

nothing's greater than god, nothing's more evil than the devil.
the poor have nothing, the rich need nothing.
and if you eat nothing, you die.

lol. i missed ur last post. I was gonna send you a msg with nothing written on it. Too late but.

Let me try and think of another riddle.

Ok. Long one, but bare with me:

Your a sailor who gets court by a bunch of pirates, but the captian, being the loving scallywag that he is, offers you a riddle: You must utter a statement based on fact. If the statement is true, i will fry you in oil, but if the answer is false, ill only boil you in fat.

What would you say?

(And if you get this one, theres a second part to it, but well see what happens here first. Only problem is, if one person gets it, you all find the answer. Oh well, stuff happens)

RiMMER, yes the answer is nothing.

and i belive the answer to Nemesis's question is "I will be boiled in fat" its not true, im boiled in fat, making it true, making it false, infinitly many times over.

Ok, so its a paradox. Good. Heres the next one.

You are an assassassasssasssin (got a little carried away there, sry) who gets caught. The king says to you "Give us a your daggers and well let you live" BUT because you killed so many of my best men, you are obviously a good fighter and as such ill allow you one statement. If that statement is false or unprovable, ill slice your head off. If it is true ill burn you alive. If it is a paradox (like the other one before) then ill.. umm.... kill you in some other way. IF you say nothing ill feed you to my lions (who are very hungry for assassins) umm... i think thats about it"
So what do you say?
