I can be quick and then I'm deadly,
I am a rock, shell and bone medley.
If I was made into a man, I'd make people dream,
I gather in my millions by ocean, sea and stream.

oops I meant to write I thought it was calcium. Because "we gather in millions by oceans...." Coral is Calcium. Other than that i feel pretty dumb

Line 3 refers to a song that goes "Mr. Sandman send a dream." It's played in Back to the Future.

Close your eyes and the sandman will come put you to sleep.

Scary thing to tell a child.

Quick sand is over rated at being deadly.

I loved it. It really had me going. Then I thought about the quick part and it all fell into place. Thanks for such a great teaser.

Nov 05, 2007

really good! When i saw the answer, the third line popped out at me. Sand-man, good one. I don't know if it's really known for being deadly though...
darkwondersus
Nov 05, 2007

When I thought quick yet deadly, I thought of sandstorms... Those can be quite dangerous, especially to your eyes if you aren't careful...
zonahoboAus*

I liked it a lot... a sand lot.
Good job!

Wow... a some people must have taken this from you... if you do a google search of it, there's some sites with this same riddle. I'm sorry that people stole this from you.

It's okay Zig, Sand is made from both rock, and shells, as well as an assortment of other things- so you were close

This one was actually easy for me. Sand popped into my mind after the first line but at the time, I thought it was quick sand... Then I finished the rest. Tehe.

I don't often get riddles, so when 'sand' popped into my head after the 3rd reading, and fit everything perfectly, I was very excited!!
auntiesisAus*
Nov 05, 2010

Good one, but I didn't get it. It makes perfect sense once you know the answer.
crocodiletca*
Nov 05, 2010

I like it! I was thinking about fossils.

Nov 05, 2010

I thought "quicksand" too. For those of you who didn't get the third line, have you ever heard of the sandman?
phyllisa*us*
Nov 06, 2010

I got it without the "quick" but then my brain woke up. The Sandman is an old story, he comes at night and sprinkles sand in your eyes to make you sleep.

I just looked it up on Wikipedia, it's from a Hans Christian Andersen story.

I am still not quite sure evry thing fits here. I guessed shells also, but then did not think it fit entirely either. I am glad some of you brains got it!!

Absolutely brilliant! Had me stumped! Perfect.
jaycr*us*

4th line gave it away for me.
