    So I'm listing to The Dark Tower III The Wastelands on audiobook and I just got here:

    What can run but never walks,
    Has a mouth but never talks,
    Has a bed but never sleeps,
    Has a head but never weeps?

    What's YOUR favorite riddle?

    I have streets but no pavement.
    I have cities but no buildings.
    I have forests yet no trees.
    I have rivers yet no water.
    What am I?

    Here's a classic.

    More beautiful than the face of your God

    More wicked than the forked tongue of a demon
    It can be found where anything cannot,
    Poor people have it,
    Rich people want it,
    Dead men eat it all the time,
    Live men who eat it die slowly....

    The man who invented it, doesn't want it for himself.
    The man who bought it, doesn't need it for himself.
    The man who needs it, doesn't know it when he needs it.

    What is it?

    A ancient classic:

    I'm walking on 4 legs at the morning,
    I'm walking on 2 legs at noon,
    I'm walking on 3 legs at dawn.
    What am I?

    1. If you look at the numbers on my face, you won't find thirteen any place.

    2. Tear one off and scratch my head; what was once red is black instead.

    3. The eight of us go forth, not back, to protect our king from a foe's attack.

    4. We're five little items of an everyday sort; you'll find us all in 'a tennis court'.

    There's a bonus, but it's not in the form of a riddle. If you can answer it, then I didn't need to ask in the first place.

    Clock, match, and pawns. I've heard the last one but haven't had any caffeine this morning yet.
