I hope this is the right area for me to share riddle with you if you are fans of the Riddler. Here is the riddle I'd like to share with you. When do you start at the end and end at the start? Maybe some of you might be able to figure it out right away. I can't wait to find out what answers you might come up with for this riddle. Good luck trying to figure it out.
you had me thinking for a bit before i finally figured it out. very good riddle and a great idea for a thread. we should keep this going and have a riddle thread where people ask riddles and people try to answer them.
I don't know your granddad, let alone traveled with him. Is your grandfather the late Frank Gorshin ? The actor who played the Riddler. Because if he is , that would be really cool! :-) And have you figured out the riddle yet?

and how is midnight incorrect? it would seem that you didnt phrase the riddle properly as it leaves open too many answers. a day starts at midnight and ends at midnight. so at midnight, you start at the end and end at the start. same thing goes for a calendar year. the answer i gave isnt incorrect its just not the one out of 85 answers to this question that are correct that you are looking for.
a true riddle has one answer and there can only be one answer that fits the riddle. you either asked a philosophical riddle (which has multiple answers and all should be different from different people) or you didnt ask it right. i think you're missing a word because how it is now its philosophical. its like me asking the riddle, what's the meaning of life? everyone will have a different correct response.
^ you asked, "when do you start at the end and end at the start?". every single day starts at midnight and ends at midnight. 0:00 is midnight's time. thats when the previous day ends and the next one begins. so midnight is when you start at the end and end at the start. you said its a riddle, not a joke. if you phrased it right, then what you asked was a philosophical riddle. it would seem that it has multiple answers since midnight fits exactly to the question and you say there is another answer. that means it has multiple answers. that means that there isnt a right or wrong answer.
Well, I'm going to give you the answer free for nothing! "When do you start at the end and end at the start?" Here's the answer: "When you're waiting in line.".
When you're waiting in line to start at the end of the line, which is the back of the line. And after you wait long enough in line. You're going to end up at the start of the line, which is the front of the line.
If any of you have some riddles for me. You want to stump me with, feel free to lay them on me.
^ no offense, but that was bad. midnight fits a whole lot better than waiting in line. especially since there are some lines that you cant get to the front of, therefore you cant possibly end at the start. did you make this one up or did you get it from somewhere? because if you got it from somewhere, let them know that their answer is wrong, and if you made it up you need to know that there can only be one answer to a true riddle, and that answer should be absolute and definitive.
good idea for a thread though. i'll try to think one up tonight and post it.
