PostSubject: A Strange Riddle I Don't Understand   Wed Mar 25, 2009 10:59 pm

My friend gave me a riddle. I don't know the answer and I don't understand it either. Can you gie any suggestions to this riddle? Here it is: "What has four legs in the beginning of it's life, two legs in the middle part of it's life, and three legs in the end part of it's life?" Huh?

It's a riddle about an aging man.

The four legs is the infant stage, where they're crawling on all fours (i.e. two hands, two knees).

The two legs is, obviously, walking, running, etc.

The three legs is at an elderly age, where the use of a cane (i.e. the third leg) is often needed to walk.

^^

Ooo that makes sense. I just need to ask my friend for the answer when I go back to school to see if you are right. Untill then, more suggestions untill I get the answer. But I'm pretty sure you're right Eternal. I just need to see.

I know what this is! 8D
This is the riddle of the Sphinx! The Sphinx would sit on a rock and ask the riddle, and if you didn't get it right, it would eat you~

Gradually, the answer spread through the Egyptian societies and nobody got the answer wrong anymore~ Because the Sphinx had nobody to eat, it died from starvation~

Baby crawling on four "legs"~
Adult on two legs~
And an elder, using a cane as a third leg~

That would be something like four legs, when I think about it...
But remember, the riddle was written for Egyptians, and supposedly save them from the Sphinx~ Back then, all they had was a cane~

yep ageing. the riddle also can go: what walks on 4 legs, then 2, then 3?

the correct answer is

man

becuase when their a baby, they walk on four, then as they get older they walk on two, then when they're old, they have a can.

Suicide? XD
Let me go check...
No, my books say that it died from starvation~

Well, different Myths have different outcomes. Maybe both are true?
