Scienta Est Potentia IV

So you think you have wisdom, friend? Well then, let's see if you can prove that. Below are a few riddles, some of my own concoction whilst others I have solved in the past. So put your thinking caps on, and we shall see whether your intellectual capabilities stand to the test, or fall short miserably.

Get them all right at a first guess, and I shall hold you in high regard - a privilege that only few can boast.

Begin.

I.

I am lighter than a feather,
Unseen to thy eye
But just try ye, to hold me
Thou surely wilt die.
What am I?



II.

At night they come without being called.
At dawn they leave without being told.
What are they?



III.

I am a word of letters three.
Add two more and fewer there will be.
What am I?



IV.

How far can a dog run into the woods?



V.

Take two apples out of three.
How many apples now rest with thee?



VI.

I was going to St Ives
When I met a man with seven wives
Each wife had seven sacks
Each sack had seven cats
Each cat had seven kits.
Kits, cats, sacks and wives
How many were going to St Ives?



VII.

When the more there is of me
Then truly of less thou wilt see
What am I?



VIII.

I am too much for one person
Just right for two
But for three people I no longer exist
What am I?



IX.

I start with "E"
I also end with "E"
But I only contain one letter.
What am I?



X.

I was born the same the this Earth was
I am destined to live until the Earth dies
Yet I'm never five weeks old.
What am I?



XI.

Like time, I have an ebb and flow
Through lands of high, I reach the low
I have a bed but never sleep
I have a mouth but never eat.
What am I?



XII.

A bee with an itch,
I am also a dogma.
What word am I?


So get your brains cracking (or whats left of them). The solutions will be revealed in the next post. Or maybe I'll just be the evil twat I am and won't reveal the answers at all. That should cause give many of you a sleepless night or two. Better yet, I should just tell you to go Google. That is, if you already haven't yet, you lazy bastards :P

Ye who seek for audience, let ye speak now!
