    • · You must attempt to answer the last posted riddle.
      · Whoever solves it asks the next riddle.
      · Hints should not be too direct.
      · Your riddle can be in any form. (prose, poetry, question, story)
      · You may discuss the riddle among each other to figure it out.
      · Original riddles are great!
      · If you google the answer, you are a jerk.

    Riddle numero uno (first riddle I've ever written, go easy on me):

    Consider a revolution,
    Divide me by my middle.

    Yes, in this small division
    Lies the answer to this riddle.

    Within the revolution you will find my fighting men,
    Running here and there and everywhere, in one or two of me.

    You could just take my middle and multiply by 10,
    But if you don't know me now, be really proud of me. :)

    My answer to the first 2 stanzas: 360/180=2
    I think you need to make clear what you are looking for eg. a number, an object, etc.

    I can't really make it clear without giving it away...

    You were almost on the track with first two stanzas, note middle, not half.

    Third stanza, you may need some US history...

    We have the power to destroy, to bring pain and suffering. Yet at the same time we can heal, bring hope and can be promising. We can be touched, we can be felt, we can be heard and seen. We are often to be found in groups, yet we are most powerful alone. Who are we?

    Close enough - answer is minute. Minutemen fought during the revolutionary war. :) cheers!

    Tears? Seems to fit okay.

    not tears. And please remember that this is a global forum so don;t use terms like minute men, whish I have never heard in 3 years of US History.

    I imagine it's much harder if it's not your native language. :)

    I threw it in there for anyone who might get it - most americans wouldn't get it either. :p

    Okay... is it friends?

    Originally, the Minute Men were civilian soldiers who would be ready to fight in under a minute when called upon. They played a key role in the downfall of the British during the War for Independence because of their quick reaction time and preplanned tactics.

    Shyft's got it. I originally thought it was a dual meaning, that each 'squad' had 60 men. I was wrong though. Anyways, we gotta get VT's...

    I think I got it :p

    I was going to say soldiers, but they're normally better in groups.
    Gonna stick with people or Humans (or Assassins...)

    We are technically not alive, but we can be brought to life just as we can bring life or death. The choice is yours!
