In your future and in your past
I come and go so senseless and fast
My purpose is unknown to all

I travel by night and fade by day
Because that is my common way

Nov 11, 2005

Good teaser. However, as there are 24 "What Am I?" teasers, you should try to come up with an original title. Good teaser though.

Good Teaser. . did u know by the way that at least 20-21% of people get killed or kill them selves because of the internet. just thought i should bring it up.

Dec 10, 2005

First I thought "the moon" but it's not senseless. So then the answer suggested itself. Good teaser!

"To die, to sleep--
To sleep--perchance to dream: ay, there's the rub,
For in that sleep of death what dreams may come
When we have shuffled off this mortal coil,
Must give us pause."

So, IMCUL4E, how's that immortal coil working out for you? Nice teaser, Amy, loved it.
bluehawk*us*
Dec 10, 2005

I LIKED THIS ONE AMY. GOT THE CORRECT ANSWER TOO. . KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK.
thimblenogginus*
Dec 10, 2005

Is the purpose of dreams really unknown to all? Modifying memories, making plans, replaying the events of the day, wishfull thinking, re-living precious moments- all part of the mind at work while the body rests.

Pleasant dreams.
ceeyaaa**
Dec 10, 2005

I got it..unbelievable..since riddles are not my forte...by the way, IMCUL43 you are funny. Started the day with a laugh
brokenbrain

got it, enjoyed your rhyme, good one to wake up to
shawneeo*us*
Dec 10, 2005

Nice poem and riddle, thanks! I don't think you should have the hint, makes it too easy, my opinion, obviously. Some of u peeps are so xtreme! Imcul was very very funny about going first. Oh, um, whoever that was, you said 20-24% of people die... 20% of what people? Of the world population? Or of peeps who use the internet? That's one fifth to one fourth, ya know... That's like, kinda hard to swallow. I'd like to know more about that. Thanks for the teaser amy!
Krayd
Dec 10, 2005

Yeah that was a nice teaser, I especially love teasers that I can get. lol However dreams are not senseless at all, and there purpose is known to many people.
Serpio, little harsh dont ya think??
jabdrAus*
Dec 10, 2005

Good one Amy. I got it without the clue which makes it a nice way to start my day.
rubberducky36**

easy but nicely done.

Dec 10, 2005

IMHO "Time" could also be the answer ...
lorelle_b*us*
Dec 10, 2005

haha well i'm really bad at riddles...anyways good job, of course i didn't get it right...but i'm slowly getting better! hehe i was thinking the moon, but that only fit about half the clues
cola_vixen**
Dec 10, 2005

I loved this one! And the weird part is I actually got it. I thought it might be dreams and then I saw the hint and I knew it was. This is my first teaser to ever get right away and I've been doing them for alomst a year..
I loved it though! Make more like this one please!

suganue*us*
Dec 10, 2005

I liked it. It was a little easy, but cleverly written. The part about it "coming at night and fading by day" gave it away. Good Job

I didn't get it o well great one
christine77**
Dec 10, 2005

I liked this teaser alot! And I got it right, w/o the hint!! Thanks Amy, this is a good one.
Llama-Llover**
Dec 10, 2005

I'm afraid that I got this one very quickly, and with ease. It was so simple, my llama could have gotten that one. And I don't even have a llama. You tried, but not hard enough.
SunroseAus*
Dec 10, 2005

Very good teaser. Well written. Keep up the good work.
stephiesd**
Dec 10, 2005

I agree. dreams are very much not senseless. they helped me determine that the thing i hated to death doing less than a year ago will be my future career, i hope.

anyway, thanks. i'm no good at riddles though.
crazyhobo**
Dec 10, 2005

couldn't it also be acne? i mean, when it fades by day, that could mean that it's covered up with make-up. and they come and go, and who knows why we have it?
hockeygirl*mx*
Dec 10, 2005

omg I GOT IT thats so cool i really enjoyed that one!! : that was totally fun oh yeh oh yeh whos good im good!!!

Dec 10, 2005

Kinda easy.
matthewmurch**
Dec 10, 2005

My first guess was sleep, then I checked out the hint and saw it made a plural reference which led me to the correct answer. Good job.
lthomason**

guitargirl
Dec 10, 2005

Great teaser....I enjoyed it...1) because i got it right ...2)I love when i remember dreams....I think they can seem senseless at times but can also be a healing tool as well....after my father died I had wonderful vivid dreams of him that seemed to help through a tough time......thx for the wonderful teaser...keep them coming

Dec 13, 2005

Thanks for the good comments. i know it was pretty easy, but you need a few easy riddles mixed in with the harder ones...to ummm...give variety...yeah thats it. O and i guess you guys are right, dreams aren't always senseless...but usually mine are so i just wrote it in the riddle.
Amalius*
Dec 14, 2005

It was cool I came close I said memories because I guess Im always forgetting things It was a good one it kinda sounded like a poem
IMCUL4E*us*
Dec 19, 2005

Thank you, guys! ^___^ *warm fuzzies* ["guys"--Lady Lani, ceeyaa, shawneeo]
and mogur, i LOVE that quote! that's one of my favorite shakespearian quotes. [others- "these words are razors to my wounded heart" and [i think] "look like the innocent flower, but be the serpent under it" i had to do a project and had trouble deciding between the 3]
an call me mikki, please. i'm so embarassed by my username....

Dec 14, 2006

I actually came up with the right answer, but after I said 'dreams' I felt like it wasnt quite fitting the riddle. Maybe its just me.
Pizzazz2uAus*
Dec 14, 2006

OMG! Least we forget, You have to get something to please the only authority on Braingle... Get something on to please LM This one is easy, but keep up at your own pace! There are other teasers to fill any of our needs on Braingle. BTW, the teaser was terrific!

To Imurray, don't always be so negative when I have not seen any teasers from you!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I once dreamt that i had the worlds biggest headache, and someone gave me a hundred pound aspirin! When I woke up, my pillow was gone! Good one.
Synlapse*
Dec 14, 2006

I'm usually more of a day dreamer. And the dreams I have at night are more entertaining than real life at times. It's fun to be able to free-fall like a cartoon character and never hit the ground.
phyllisa*us*
Dec 14, 2006

A lot of fun, I got it right away
zaya*
Dec 14, 2006

Lame I'd like a teaser to challenge me for a minute or two, not the second it took to get this.
Blondie116*us*
Dec 14, 2006

loved it! great teaser
scallioAus*
Dec 14, 2006

Well I immediately thought DREAMS and then put many more minutes of thought into this teaser because I feel there are plenty of purposes to dreams. Maybe the experts don't agree.

Not my favorite teaser, but thanks for some morning brain work.

wandering_goat*
Dec 14, 2006

Good riddle. Fun to read and solve. I myself have always been fasinated by dreams as well.
wordmama*
Dec 14, 2006

As riddles are not my strong suit, I can't agree with those who complained it was too easy.

I was amazed to find I had company in my first guess 'moon'! I needed the hint to lead me to a plural and got 'dreams' soon after.

Thanks for a riddle that was for me at least try-able; so many I can't even begin to guess.
vlermaAus*
Dec 16, 2006

What a dreamy teaser. Just right for a slow Satruday morning. More please
QrystalAca*
Dec 18, 2006

Awww.. i had no idea. Well, not no idea... I thought 'time' first, then 'light', then I read the hint and got quite perplexed...

I guess I'm just not in the riddle mood today, and I should've given it a bit more time. But I was all caught up in time fading, and how purposeless time is but how it comes and goes so senseless and fast... that I decided it would be a good time to get back to work. So, I looked at the answer....

Ah well. Dreams are cool though, as is this teaser.
jimbooth019A*
