A simple riddle you behold,
All that glitters is not gold.

My first is second in line,
I'll send shivers up your spine.

Though I'm not quite shining bright,
I seem to glitter in the light.

What am I?

What Next?

That was good.

I really like this one! I can't believe I didn't get it, but it made me laugh because it was sooo obvious after I saw the answer.
Apr 23, 2005

Good stuff
Apr 23, 2005

Ummm... okay?

I thought it was a good riddle. I don't subscribe to the view that everything should be earth shatteringly difficult - I'm far happier when I get them right than when I have to give in and get the answer. Also, I would imagine that most people using the site have different areas where they shine so we need differing levels of difficulty to cater for everyone.

I didn't get it right! I felt so stupid when I saw the answer. I should of got it! Maybe it's to early.
Apr 23, 2005

I thought it was water . . . la la la

i would have never thought that. i was thinking glitter or something.
Apr 23, 2005

Interesting. I myself prefer funny brain teaers, and ones that I can actually get without having to look at the answer..... but still nice teaser.
Apr 23, 2005

Oh now i get it. Just needed the answer.
Apr 23, 2005

Good one, but I needed the answer.
Apr 23, 2005

I was so close. I wasn't thinking of ice though. I was thinnking stras at first. I don't know!
Apr 23, 2005

Nice I liked that one Great Job
Apr 23, 2005

A little too hard for me...I don't particularly think ice glitters. When I saw the shivers up the spine bit I thought of lightning. And I totally missed the "my first is second in line" bit. Didn't realize it had to do w/ letters. I need to come up w/ a good one...aha, I got one. I'll see if I can post it.
Apr 23, 2005

that was a good one i liked it

Apr 23, 2005

i thought it might be water to but was stick with the"second in line " deal
I agree with rrb21.
Apr 23, 2005

My first thought was fool's gold until I saw the shivers up your spine clue. Of course, if I found real gold, I'm sure it would send shivers up my spine! Very good teaser even though I didn't get the answer correct!
Apr 24, 2005

this one is cute, thanks i got it
Apr 25, 2005

too easy
Apr 25, 2005

Poor riddle!
May 03, 2005

hey whats up? u guys think ur so cool cuz ur on here? well...ur not
Nov 11, 2006

I got it, though it took me awhile to get the "my first = 2nd in line" thing (I knew that was the key.) Good work.
Nov 11, 2006

Nov 11, 2006

Good work
Nov 11, 2006

I thought it was a Bee. "My first is second in line ..." I thought of the line as the alphabet, and bees certainly make my spine shiver and bees shimmer as they fly because you can't focus on them. Maybe I'll submit the same riddle with an answer of : BEE.
Nov 11, 2006

A very good mouth-watering teaser. It seems to have made a few people aware, this morning! Keep up the fantastic work. I can enjoy teasers of this nature.
Nov 11, 2006

As a rule I like riddles, but this was was reaching a bit, I think. I didn't get it, and I don't think I ever would have gotten it with what was revealed in the riddle. Sorry. That is just my opinion.
Nov 11, 2006

it was okay.
Nov 11, 2006

that was easy i got it right away..but that was a very good riddle
Nov 11, 2006

the only part i understood was that it isnt gold and it sparkles and sends shivers, that makes it obviously ice, hey, and i am only 13 here.
Nov 11, 2006

ok i gave up

i thought it was something scary with the 'send shivers up your spine' bit
hey i'm only 13 here...cut me some slack
Nov 11, 2006

Lucky guess on my part..I went with I but didn't think it was right based on riddle.
Nov 11, 2006

i got it as soon as i read the my first is second in line part
so obvious
Nov 11, 2006

Hey, it was kinda sticky, i don't know, it wasn't really original
Nov 11, 2006

It was really hard
Nov 11, 2006

wow, i was actually pretty close. i thought it was snow or rain or something.
Nov 12, 2006

i loved it!!! riddles are the BOMB!!!!
Nov 17, 2006

NN ice job. Cool. More please.
Dec 14, 2006

Aarrgghh!!! 2nd in LINE!!! BAHHH!!! You got me. I'm just feeling ashamed.

I knew that clue had to do with letters, but I thought 2nd in line in the alphabet... and I couldn't come up with anything starting with 'B' that would send shivers up my spine. Darn, darn, darn!!
Dec 14, 2006

...except bats, but they don't glitter.
Nov 11, 2009

I, too, kept trying to make a word that started with "B." That letter is second in line in the alphabet. But, no, you had to make it too easy, and I kept trying to make it too hard!
At first I thought it was that is close to ice, isn't it???
Anyway, thanks. That was fun and a good riddle and, dag nab it, it was EASY!
Nov 11, 2009

This one has been on here long enough that the ice has melted.
Nov 11, 2009

My first is second in line gave the whole thing away. Very cleverly done.
Nov 11, 2009

Sends shivers made me think it was either snow or ice...the first is second in line gave it away. Fun riddle!
Nov 11, 2009

Nov 11, 2009

I thought it was a diamond...
Nov 11, 2009

YOU GOT ME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Nov 11, 2012

I thought it was dew on a very cold morning.It glitters and the cold outside makes you shiver. Oh well it could have been but ice is better, I guess!
Nov 11, 2012

Very easy COOL teaser.
Nov 19, 2015

Nov 19, 2015
