Don't be a baby there is an answer to the third question.  Don't cork it just yet.

Correct.

1. What is this thing
With fingers long.
That grips our deadly
Swords so strong?

2. Six legs, two heads,
Two hands, one long nose.
Yet he uses only four legs
Wherever he goes.

3. Black when bought.
Red when used.
Gray when thrown away.

What'd you do look them up? ;)

1. It never was before.
It is not now.
Fools wait for it forever.

2. What ranges far an
Cannot be confined,
Yet stays in one spot?
The correct one will
Open this chest.

3. Held firmly in the hands,
Like a sword it cuts deep.
Bloodless strokes, all,
Then forward we leap.

1) the future

No way man. My policy is if I do give up on one and look it up then I just won't answer it.

As for these three, I can only guess 1). If its not 'future' then its 'tomorrow'.

"The future" is correct.  And really I was just joking, but it's good to know these are really attempted.  Still waiting for 2 and 3.

3) Pole Vault? I was thinking Rowing Paddles but you would leap backwards.

My other guess would've been the hammer throw.

Then as a last attempt I would say Pen. Because the pen is mightier than the sword, and sharp with wit.

If we are to keep in line with Rumpus Room, I would like to put forward rusty ski poles as an alternative answer

But it's not either of these is it Renodox?

2) Only thing I can think of is "air". I don't have any smart remarks for this one sorry.
<Babar> do me, do me, do me! :D
<ProgZMax> I got an idea - I reached in my pocket and pulled out my Galen. <timofonic2> Maybe I'm a bit gay, enough for do multitask and being romantical

No it's not either of those but your "I was thinking" was right.

#2 is wrong though.

Regarding #2, is 'the correct one will open this chest' part of the actual clue? Or can it be answered based on the lines before it?
I've a few ideas, but none of them open chests.

It is part of the riddle itself.  However, you could use something else like "The right one will solve this riddle."

I didn't think that this one would be so hard.  Let your mind wander and come up with the answer.

2 - Thought?

Re: Can you solve this riddle?

Imagination?

Re: Can you solve this riddle?

"Thought" is correct.

1. Bloodless and boneless
It travels about.
Yet it never leaves home.

2. You hear it speak,
For it has a hard tongue.
But it cannot breathe,
For it has not a lung.

3. Has a tongue,
But never talks.
Has no legs,
But sometimes walks.

1. Caravan?
3. A shoe? (I feel like we've had this one already).

Yeah, we probably already did have #3 before but you got that one.  The other one is wrong though.

Maybe it's time to retire this thread for now.  After all, you all seem to have backed into your shells and this just doesn't chime with the fun anymore.
