Stronger than steel, yet lighter than cotton
Found in a corner, forever forgotten
I bother so many, but marvel a few
You can't seem to make me
I'm a mystery to you.


Hint

I am used for protection
But also a weapon.

Didn't get it -- got stuck thinking of dust bunnies (maybe I should clean house more often!)

Good one, though.

Ha Wikipedia is my favorite spot too and I see thats where you got most of all of your information from. No complaints, good research.

Haha yes I did look it up on wikipedia (who wouldn't? ), although the idea for the riddle and most of my info came from a magazine article that I read. The 16 oz thing did come from wiki

"I bother so many . . ."

I'm one of the many.

It's nicely worded, and taught me some new facts! Good job!

Very well written, but sadly very easy. I liked it though.

I liked it a swell, and amazingly spider web popped into my head right away. I didn't think it was right, but I couldn't come up with anything else. Very nice teaser.

I guessed cobweb also. Isn't that the same? Forever forgotten?
Not in my house!!!

I thought about cobwebs, too. A friend of mine calls if 'Irish Lace' when she finds them in those odd little places. Then I thought about 'will', as I didn't know about the steel thing-Very cool!

It was really difficult for me. Why does it seem so easy to everyone else?

I hate to jinx myself, but I've been getting more riddles lately! (It's OK if some1 informs me they've been especially easy!!) The second reading and spider web popped in! Yay!

Apr 14, 2012

It was a good one. I didn't know the facts about the spider-silk either didn't even think of that I would never ave gotten it either. Oh well just another one I didn't get.
