Oh man... Oedipus Rex.... What a ****** up little story...
#82 - John Cena (03/20/2013) [-]
i love how everyone is the comment is is acting smug and smart because they know this Oedipus and his story
news flash its one of the most researched and dissected stories in history, probably at least ninety literature. classes around the globe reading it at this very moment, or any given moment . plus the sphinxs riddle is probably even better known then any riddle given in tlotr
in other words you guys arent ****
User avatar #13 - masdercheef (03/20/2013) [-]
Just out of curiosity, what was the true answer to the Sphinx's riddle?


Also, Oedipus is, like, the definition of a Tragic Hero. Literally. English classes use him to learn about tragic heroes, I guess that's what comes of ******* your mother and murdering your father while trying to avoid that very same destiny.
#24 to #13 - John Cena (03/20/2013) [-]
The answer is a man he crawls on four legs as a baby, the morning, walks on two as a man, noon and limps with a cane (3 legs) when he's an old man, evening its also a riddle in the hobbit I think.
User avatar #38 to #24 - corkscrew (03/20/2013) [-]
it's not in the hobbit
#55 to #38 - John Cena (03/20/2013) [-]
The book :)
User avatar #92 to #55 - corkscrew (03/20/2013) [-]
It's not in the book either
#35 to #13 - John Cena (03/20/2013) [-]
i bet you leaned that in your english class too, yeah so did i
#41 to #13 - John Cena (03/20/2013) [-]
The answer is man.

Man walks on four legs in the morning of its life (birth-toddler)
Walks on two legs in the afternoon of its life (toddler-old age)
And walks on 3 legs with the help of a cane in the evening of its life (Old age-ded).

You are now educate. Please deposit generous tip into the box. :)
#51 to #13 - John Cena (03/20/2013) [-]
Its Man: Crawling as an infant (4 legs), Walking as an adult (2legs), and being on a cane in old age (3 legs)
#52 to #13 - John Cena (03/20/2013) [-]
True answer:
Man. For he crawls on all fours as a baby, walks on to legs as an adult and walks with a cane as an old man.
#60 to #13 - John Cena (03/20/2013) [-]
human, when borned, it crwal on 4 and when aged, it goes on two then three, with a walking stick.
#61 to #13 - John Cena (03/20/2013) [-]
The answer is Humans.
In the morning (youth) you crawl on all four because you don't know how to walk.
Noon (adulthood) you walk on two.
And in the night (old n **** ) you walk on three, your 2 legs and your walking stick.
#76 to #13 - John Cena (03/20/2013) [-]
Man
he crawls on 4 legs as a baby, then grows up, walks on 2, and then gets a walking stick as he grows old
#89 to #13 - arigsxc (03/20/2013) [-]
Man. I believe the answer was man. You crawl as a baby. Walk as a man and use a cane as an elder
User avatar #91 to #13 - namesboo (03/20/2013) [-]
the answer to all three of them is a baby. it crawls on all 4's, then cut off its legs it crawls about with only 2 arms and give it a crutch it hobbles on 3
#14 to #13 - John Cena (03/20/2013) [-]
A baby in the morning (crawling on four legs), a man at noon (normal guy has two legs), and an old man at dusk (two real legs and a cane make three legs)
User avatar #15 to #14 - dakkenly (03/20/2013) [-]
It makes some sense, until you realize this baby is aging incredibly rapidly
#16 to #15 - John Cena (03/20/2013) [-]
It's a metaphor of life. Babies don't age that rapidly
#58 to #16 - jiltist ONLINE (03/20/2013) [-]
They do on nanoprobes!

scieencee
User avatar #17 to #16 - dakkenly (03/20/2013) [-]
Well yes if worded correctly. Otherwise it's just some mutant
#18 to #17 - John Cena (03/20/2013) [-]
That's pretty much how it's worded in the book. The solution doesn't sound as cultured when you make it realistic. Plus the riddle requires the solution to be in day form.
#44 to #15 - John Cena (03/20/2013) [-]
Archetype of a day representing a lifetime
User avatar #29 to #14 - masdercheef (03/20/2013) [-]
Ah, right. Thanks, white people, I knew I could count on you.
#66 to #29 - John Cena (03/20/2013) [-]
Your welcome masdercheef
#26 - John Cena (03/20/2013) [-]
For those wondering the answer was "Man"

As a baby (morning) you crawl on 4 legs (2 arms, 2 legs). As an adult (noon) you walk with 2 legs. As an elderly person (night) you walk with 2 legs and a cane, so 3.

and then he married his mother soonish after that he found out that she was his mother so he stabbed his eyes out
User avatar #34 to #33 - imonamouse (03/20/2013) [-]
i ******* loved this story in high school. my teacher let me draw the scene when he stabs his eyes with the broach as an actual assignment. everyone else made a gay mask
User avatar #53 to #33 - ighostinthefogi (03/20/2013) [-]
Really? I've never heard this story. So is it part of the story that it's ironic for such a man that's clever enough to figure such an intricate riddle, but can't figure that this woman could be his mother?

oh god thats annoying
#62 - EdwardNigma ONLINE (03/20/2013) [-]
Excuse me, Oedipus, but I believe the answer is a baby.

Normally it will crawl on all four limbs. Remove it's legs and it can only hobble around on 2. Give it a crutch and it can sort of get around on 3.

It's actually a a symbol for human, as in aging.
4 legs as it is crawling. When it get's to adulthood, it walks on it's 2 legs. Then in the evening, they're old, they have a walking stick, making it 3.
User avatar #64 to #63 - EdwardNigma ONLINE (03/20/2013) [-]
I'm well aware of the actual answer, I was just making Batman references.
#84 to #62 - feelythefeel (03/20/2013) [-]
>Remove its legs
This kills the baby

is it sad that i have memorized every single weakness and strength of 1st and 2nd gen pokemon?
User avatar #79 to #46 - fukkenbisharp (03/20/2013) [-]
and I suppose you think everything past gen 2 is stupid right?
User avatar #94 to #79 - krajan (03/20/2013) [-]
no actualy i used to have saphire ver and it was pretty fun gen 3 is decent and whatever gen platinum is is alright its a nice change from gen 1 and 2 although i do like the first 2 better so far
#47 to #46 - aldheim (03/20/2013) [-]
1st and 2nd?
User avatar #48 to #47 - krajan (03/20/2013) [-]
yes 1st and 2nd id memorize the rest but honestly ive got better things to spend 40$ on
User avatar #67 to #48 - ThatsSoFunnyHeHe (03/20/2013) [-]
Why/How the **** did you spend $40 on that?
I know the weaknesses of about 90% of Pokemon.
And that was for free.
User avatar #93 to #67 - krajan (03/20/2013) [-]
thats how much new pokemon games are these days and i didnt
#65 - Rockaman ONLINE (03/20/2013) [-]
Obviously it is man,

He crawls around on 4 'legs' as a baby, walks on two as an adult, then his penis grows huge and he walks on 3 when he's older!
#73 to #65 - thecratcher (03/20/2013) [-]
They could all be a baby:
It crawls on all fours at first. Cut of it's legs and it hobbles around on two limbs. Give it a crutch and it can hobble around on three.
#85 to #73 - jokervsbatsy (03/20/2013) [-]
That's horrible. How can you laugh at that?
#95 to #85 - thecratcher (03/20/2013) [-]
Easily. It's not my baby.

Since every single comment below is smartasses with the right answer, I will supply a false answer.

The answer is a fish.

#21 - megalaragaruda (03/20/2013) [-]
I feel like I could name them all if given enough time, though id probably get order wrong. I CAN however get their cries right in the game, every single one of em!
