Default Riddle me this!

I love riddles, although I am mediocre at best. No searching for the answers online since that is CHEATING!

I will start off with a classic riddle:

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 Am I?

HunterX119, if you have any, I am up for it

Here is another classic:

I am at the beginning of eternity
At the end of time and space
At the beginning of every end
At the end of every place
What am I?

A shadow?

What English word means burning wood when you take away the first letter of the word?

Yes it's a shadow

I have been thinking of this riddle for the past couple of days and it has been futile >_< I am very tempted to google the answer ...but didn't...so I hope someone isn't as stumped as I am and can answer this for me! lol

A man goes out drinking every night, returning to his home in the wee hours of every morning. No matter how much he drinks, he never gets a hang over. This drink is very well known, but rarely consumed, served warm and taken straight from its source. This man is a sucker for a free drink, especially since he cant live with out it. What is his favorite drink???

A guy lives on the 40th floor of a building. On sunny days, he takes the elevator to the 20th floor and walks the rest of the way. On rainy days or if someone is in the elevator with him, he takes the elevator all the way to the 40th floor. Why is this?

cuz he's too short to reach the button for the 40th floor; on rainy days he has his umbrella.

how'd i do?

Mountain is correct.

I figured night, because it has passed or ended before the day with the sun. The only other thing I can think of would be wind or a shadow itself.

Nothing (that's one of my favourite riddles) ^_^

We are very little creatures. All of us have different features. One of us is set in glass; one of us you'll find in jet. Another you may find in tin and the last resides in box. If the fifth you should pursue, it will not fly from you. What are we?

Vowels

A classic, but one of my favourites...

You are in a room with two doors. In front of each door is a guard. One of the doors leads to Heaven, the other one leads to Hell. One of the guards will always tell the truth no matter what, and the other will always lie no matter what you ask.

To get to Heaven are allowed to ask only one question to only one guy. What question can you ask to guarantee you can go to Heaven?

A few things to remember:

1. You can only ask one question, you can only ask it once, and it must be answerable with either "Yes" or "No".

2. You don't know which guard is standing in front of which door (i.e Finding out which guard is the liar won't help, as you can only ask one question and you don't know which door he is guarding.

3. The guards know themselves they must always lie or always tell the truth, and therefore knows the other guard will always do the opposite of what they do.

You would have to ask one of the guards what the other guard would say about the door he is guarding.

No new riddle? I'll chime in, then.
A woman has 7 children. Half of them are boys. How can this be possible?

Bonus riddle #1:
Please excuse my poor drawing skills, but there's a point to this.
Given the below image of the bus (yes, that's a bus), consider this:
Why do 1/3 of schoolchildren say it's driving to the right, while 2/3 say it's going to the left?


Bonus riddle #2
Why is a raven like a writing-desk?
(Optionally, explain why you can't answer this.)

Actually, I can answer this. Although I know that it originally had no answer in the book. Carroll actual did add one later.

"Because they can both produce a few notes."

Others have stated that it is because Poe wrote on both.

I actually wrote a paper on Carroll and Alice in college.

Almost, but the answer to the question has to be yes or no. There are only two possible questions that could give you the information you need.

Either one of them is a hermaphrodite... or she has and 8th child as well. There is no "half" if there is 7 as that implies half a child (even if they are all boys), so I am a little lost on this one

You would have ask one of the guards what the other guard would say if you asked him if that was the door to Heaven?

Easy one:

What has keys that open no locks, space but no room, and you can enter but not go in?

Correct on the "they're all boys".

Hint on the bus: Do not assume American schoolchildren...

That would probably be a keyboard, and not the musical kind.

Speaking of music:
What kind of notes make no sound?

A notebook?

This might be off, but it's the direction the children are facing. So 1/3 of the children thinks they are going to the right because they are facing that way. And 2/3 of the children are facing the left?

It's not a notebook (that'd be a kind of book).

It's not the direction the kids are facing. Hint #2: What don't you see on this bus?

Speak up if you want the answers, maybe I'm off base and this is way too hard?

A door

The door is usually on the left side (for the people that drive on the right side of the road anyway ) therefore if the left side is hidden, the bus is headed right.

...or left, if you drive on the right side of the road.

Correct! But where's your riddle, mate?

Alright...I did NOT get that at all! >_>; I think it's being North American -_-;

Well don't know if this is a good riddle, but I thought I'll throw something:

Where may you find roads without cars, forests without trees, cities without houses?

I want to say Settlers of Catan (a board game), but I don't think that's right. Hmm! The roads could be in the past, the forests could be under water (kelp), and the cities could be of caves or tents, but that's probably not right either (I suppose you're looking for one answer to cover all three cases).

That is a tricky one!

Hint: you're very warm with your first answer, though it's not a board game...but what does it remind you of? lol

Mice?
Death?
Not being able to solve a riddle?
This is way too open ended to be a riddle!

You throw away the outside and cook the inside. Then you eat the outside and throw away the inside. What did you eat?
