Nope so far...

There are probably a lot of potential answers to this one so just keep plugging in the thread until someone hits the right one...

Not a great riddle but something to keep the thread active I guess ;-D

Nothing quite so scientific as skin cells etc.

"Breaths" is quite close.

I don't really want to request hidden answers for this one as there are many potential answers so it's more of a guessing game to hit the right one.

Mandle could you clarify something please?

Billions of us are thrown away,
By everybody, every day.
Yet noone ever finds us lacking,
Until Death comes a rapping.

What are we?


Now the way I read it is that each person throws away billions of whatever it is every day.  Is that accurate, or is the sum of what everyone together throws away what the "billions" refer to?

You do have to admit a lot of the answers do fit the riddle though, just not the one thing you are thinking of.

Already admitted.

It's a guessing contest round.

Not quite... But combine that answer with a previous close one and then that's a win!

BINGO!

That was the answer I had in mind when I made the riddle.

I feel this kind of open-ended riddle can also be fun as a group activity where there are many possible answers and the players home in on the "correct" one.

It's kind of like "I Spy" where there may be many things visible that start with "B" but only one of them is the right one.

Anyways: over to anyone for the next one!
