Altered State

Riddles are little poems or phrases that pose a question that needs answering. Riddles frequently rhyme, but this is not a requirement.

Against my grip
you may resist
But in the end
you will desist

Turning upright
into level
Calming you but
not forever

Love or hate me
I'm undeterred
'Cause in the end
I'll have my third

What am I?

What Next?

Wow .... third comment.

Not many for such a fine riddle.

I enjoyed it and gave it a top "fun" rating.

How is the average person going to know those facts.? I find this one in a different category than a teaser. Did not care for it at all.

Good observation, babe.

Should a riddle that's riddled with trivia be in the "riddle" cat or the "trivia" cat?

And other than the "other" cat there is no comfortable "place" for "tweenies".

It's the "call" of the writer AND (often) the Editors.

I've got one coming up that I've described in the "answer" section as a "trivia rebus".

We'll see if it survives and gets posted. I'll try to remember to let you know.

Meanwhile, let's all be more tolerant of teaser writers who don't know precisely where to put stuff .... instead of telling them where to put it.

This one stumped me. I guess I needed more of the answer to get the answer.

I fell asleep while I was solving this one.

I've been out of the loop for a while and when I recently returned, I see quite a few comments from a new player. BadBunnee02. HABS always submits the most insightful comments. Cutebug submits the funniest/most sarcastic - but I like sarcastic. I like Jaycr's comments, too. Babe is wise - where is everyone else. This quiz left me wondering!

I'll wonder/wander right along with you, Gaylewolf (BTW ... welcome back) - seems we need all the help we can get.

I, too, am somewhat distressed by the paucity of comments - especially on the more creative and challenging and "fun" teasers.

As I've occasionally said ... I think the comments are often the richest part of the Braingle experience.

Wow ! This one stumped me totally. I did not have a clue. Tough one, but so obvious when I saw the answer. Keep them coming.

Don't know if it was the title that got me thinking it, but I thought sleep from the first paragraph. Was good though.

Umm, that's not what desist means. To desist would mean you succeeded in resisting. Your riddle works if you say, "but in the end, you can't desist."
