There needs to be a comma before "yet'.
User avatar #5 to #4 - infernalinsolence (12/23/2013) [-]
It's a riddle.

It's not a riddle, there is no answer. It is just a slightly confusing phrase.

You're a riddle.

"also"

That one word ruins the whole thing.
#18 to #3 - John Cena (12/24/2013) [-]
what? thumbs for the wrong answer, plz.
#74 to #18 - John Cena (12/24/2013) [-]
I think you misunderstood that comment. "Yet" is made up of 3 letters, but the word "also" implies that there is another word made up of 3 letters. This ruins the riddle.

What IS a word made up of four letters! W-H-A-T.
Yet is indeed made up of three! Y-E-T.

...now you know.

first i thought it was a riddle and i couldn't solve it so i looked at the comments and now i feel retarded
User avatar #7 - ningyoaijin (12/23/2013) [-]
This'd probably work if it was grammatically correct.
User avatar #44 - mutantunicorn (12/24/2013) [-]
the misleading bit here is that it said yet is also, but it isn't also.
User avatar #6 - soule (12/23/2013) [-]
What = 4
Yet = 3
Although = 8
Then = 4
Rarely = 6
Never = 5

Its not a riddle it's really just stating the Obvious like it says. 4 letters in &quot;word&quot; 3 in &quot;yet&quot; &quot;Although&quot; has 8, &quot;Rarely&quot; 6, and N E V E R... Get it?

Punctuation and grammar count.
#16 to #10 - John Cena (12/24/2013) [-]
One comma is missing. I really don't think that one typo is ground for saying that there is bad grammar and punctuation.
User avatar #54 to #16 - atma (12/24/2013) [-]
the missing comma really ruins the semblance of a riddle, though
User avatar #21 to #16 - WAKEFIELD (12/24/2013) [-]
when ever referring to a word or term you need to do like so: 'What' has 4 letters in it..."
User avatar #30 to #21 - kerfufflemachtwo (12/24/2013) [-]
Not if you're trying to trick people with it.
User avatar #24 - kanatana (12/24/2013) [-]
This is a fairly easy one to figure out. Not being a dick, but gimme a challenge, OP.
User avatar #25 to #24 - flozzier (12/24/2013) [-]
What is it then??
User avatar #26 to #25 - kanatana (12/24/2013) [-]
You seriously don't know the answer to the riddle up there?
User avatar #28 to #26 - flozzier (12/24/2013) [-]
Go on what is it?
User avatar #29 to #28 - flozzier (12/24/2013) [-]
Yeah, i though so... A ******* donkey here, playing a freaking einstien... **** just backfired on you dude...
#31 to #29 - kanatana (12/24/2013) [-]
Sorry, put this together about ten minutes ago, but my dog is hurt, and had to give him some painkillers. Poor little guy.

Anyway, the word is blocked in in red, with the number of letters that makes it up followed in blue. I suppose you should be bright enough to figure it out, but one can never be too sure. I know some brilliant folk on here who might be able to help you puzzle it all out if you need the assistance.
User avatar #55 to #31 - ButtChocolate (12/24/2013) [-]
So its not really a riddle, More of a statement?
User avatar #33 to #31 - flozzier (12/24/2013) [-]
It's funny how 10 minutes of panic-seach on the internet can bring you heh?
User avatar #35 to #33 - kanatana (12/24/2013) [-]
And in any case, the comments were littered with spoilers, now that I take a look at them. Cheating would have been less than useless.
User avatar #34 to #33 - kanatana (12/24/2013) [-]
No, no panic searching. This was a riddle I solved in grade school.

How about this: I'll give you one. A riddle. Even better, it has two possible answers. If you can solve it within five minutes, without assistance of any sort, I'll delete this account, and withdraw from FJ altogether. But if you can't, you do likewise.

Think you're up for it?
#36 to #34 - flozzier (12/24/2013) [-]
I can't live without FJ!
User avatar #37 to #36 - kanatana (12/24/2013) [-]
You accuse me of cheating, yet when I offer a challenge, you back off? For shame. You dishonor your ancestors.

How about this: Loser gives up all of their FJ points to date.
User avatar #39 to #37 - flozzier (12/24/2013) [-]
I'm not in to that pointsystemthing. I'm only here, to share funny **** and troll people

But hit me!
User avatar #41 to #39 - kanatana (12/24/2013) [-]
Ah, **** it. My Paint program is screwing up. Here's the riddle.

"In the morning, he trips you as you get out of bed and hurts your eyes, even though he met you the day before like a friend. In the afternoon, you will look forward to him, even as you remember how he hurt you. At night, you wish that you would never see him again. Who is he?"
User avatar #48 to #41 - inunic (12/24/2013) [-]
Why the hell not. Would it be the light switch?
User avatar #42 to #41 - flozzier (12/24/2013) [-]
The freaking sun!
User avatar #43 to #42 - kanatana (12/24/2013) [-]
Nope. Sorry. One more guess
User avatar #45 to #43 - flozzier (12/24/2013) [-]
Dunno then.
User avatar #46 to #45 - kanatana (12/24/2013) [-]
Alcohol.
User avatar #49 to #46 - inunic (12/24/2013) [-]
Refreshed after I commented. Damn..
User avatar #50 to #49 - kanatana (12/24/2013) [-]
Good one?
User avatar #52 to #50 - inunic (12/24/2013) [-]
But come on. Light switch DOES work... Kinda...
User avatar #51 to #50 - inunic (12/24/2013) [-]
Very much. Though I must admit I've always been way to logical at riddles. So I kinda suck.
User avatar #47 to #46 - flozzier (12/24/2013) [-]
Didnt think of that, at all. I dont drink
User avatar #40 to #39 - kanatana (12/24/2013) [-]
Hold on a minute, I am formatting it into image form.
User avatar #67 - haroldsaxon (12/24/2013) [-]

User avatar #68 to #67 - blueballzdeep (12/24/2013) [-]
Lul, no.
User avatar #69 to #68 - haroldsaxon (12/24/2013) [-]
Lul, yes. The 'also' ***** the entire thing up.
User avatar #70 to #69 - blueballzdeep (12/24/2013) [-]
Although this is written terribly to confuse people.
What Is a word made up with four letters yet is also made up of three letters. Although is written with eight letters, and then with four. Rarely consists of six, and never is written with five.

Feel free to tell me how you see it, this is how I see it.
User avatar #71 to #70 - haroldsaxon (12/24/2013) [-]
You are wrong. As long as the word "also" is in the first sentence, it is grammatically incorrect.
User avatar #72 to #71 - blueballzdeep (12/24/2013) [-]
No **** it's grammatically incorrect, what do you expect for a riddle on the Internet?
User avatar #73 to #72 - haroldsaxon (12/24/2013) [-]
"Also" is such a key word. There is no real riddle as long as that word ***** it up.

I am so confused right now...
User avatar #53 - Sethorein ONLINE (12/24/2013) [-]
also doesn't work here...
User avatar #56 to #53 - subaqueousreach (12/24/2013) [-]
Yet is what was made of 3. Not also.
User avatar #57 to #56 - Sethorein ONLINE (12/24/2013) [-]
I know. Also doesn't work grammatically. What else was made up of 3 letters to necessitate the use of "also" when describing that fact that, in addition to something else, yet was also made of 3 letters?
User avatar #58 to #57 - subaqueousreach (12/24/2013) [-]
Ahh that makes sense. Sorry, I didn't read it very well, I'm a little tired.
User avatar #59 to #58 - Sethorein ONLINE (12/24/2013) [-]
I am wretchedly tired. I should have been asleep hours ago
User avatar #60 to #59 - subaqueousreach (12/24/2013) [-]
I just woke up after about 17 hours of sleep. I'm still trying to figure out if I'm actually awake or not.
User avatar #61 to #60 - Sethorein ONLINE (12/24/2013) [-]
I think I've slept 7 odd hours in the past 48 hours...
