Riddle Me This...

I was watching Adam West's 'Batman' the other morning (well, 2am is technically the morning) and it featured the fantastic impressionist and entertainer of the 60s Frank Gorshin as the Riddler. Unfortunately some of the riddles in that particular episode were...well, how can I put this diplomatically?...shit. This was very disappointing, as I love a good riddle. They really fire the brain up, and when they're really good the answers can be so clever you go 'Ahhhh! Of course!'. With that in mind, here are some riddles. What do they have to do with cartoons or my random ravings? Absolutely nothing. And that's all I have to say on the subject.

-"Feed me and I grow, give me water and I die. What am I?"

-What gets wet when drying?

-What has four fingers, a thumb, but is not flesh, fish, fowl or bone?

-What is a 5 letter word that becomes shorter with 2 letters added on to it?

-What is so fragile even saying its name can break it?

-What comes once in a minute, twice in a moment, but never in a thousand years?

-I am always there, some distance away, somewhere between land or sea and sky I lay, you may move toward me, yet distant I'll stay.

Just to be a real bastard I'm not going to put up the answers. Bwahahahaa! If you know any of the answers you can put them in the comments box or be equally cruel to others and keep them to yourself, safe in the knowledge that you're very clever.

I never thought I would say this to you Rob, but you ARE a "real bastard" for not putting the answers up...but I mean that in the nicest possible way :)
