I live alone in a small house with no doors or windows, and when I leave I must break through the walls.
ummmm......is it a baby animal in an egg?
Arrogance yes 1 point for a three way tie.
OOO yay....I was thinking house of cards at first but.....then I was like nooooooo, so my next idea was an egg. . Ok now I shall think..........
K, here it goes: (Make sure to read carefully )
A man in a triathlon (these involve swimming, biking, and running ) enters the lake to start the swimming portion of the competition. To win the race the man needs to cross all the way across the lake to the finish line on the other side. It was the last leg of the race and the man was extremely exhausted and tired and was running out of energy. Halfway across the lake, the man ends up collapsing a lung due to sheer exhaustion. Due to fear of drowning he swims back the way he came.......Even though the man turned back due to possibly drowning and dying due to his collapsed lung, how could he have still ended up winning the triathlon if he hadn't turned back? Explain why.

the finish line was in the lake?
To win you'd have to swim two lengths in a pool? So once to the other side then back?
Wrong, finish line on the other side.....lol. So wrong, 1 strike for each of u
He continued with a collapsed lung throughout the competition?
I need a why though......why would he win if he kept going....it wont be a wrong if you explain why......if you choose not to I'm giving you an X

He could have made it to the other side just as well as he made it back! Meaning, he had the strength to swim back when he was halfway across, so would've had the strength to swim the second half to the other side.
Yep....when he got the injury he was halfway across, but because he was scared he swam back the way he came. But the distance of him swimming back would be the same if he instead just kept going
I got it right after you rephrased it. I was thinking in the wrong direction all this time.
I'll think of a new riddle..
Sorry for keeping you. Here's my riddle:
A 10 feet ladder is attached to the side of a ship. Each step of the ladder is 1 ft. apart. The water is rising 1 ft. per hour. How long will it take to cover the ladder?

Ummmmm wouldn't the ship just rise with the ladder???.....unless there is a hole in the ship and its sinking So is it sinking then????
