    This is just a little game some might enjoy. I'm going to give you a riddle and the first person to solve it has to, well you don't HAVE to, but it would be nice if the person who guessed correctly puts up their own riddle. Here goes.

    I am usually seen at night but sometimes during the day. I sometimes show you all of me, sometimes just half, sometimes just a quarter and other times you can't see me at all. What am I?

    Thank You for participating kaos. You are, of course correct. May I suggest that in the future, when the riddle's become more difficult, as your's is, that you please wait for confirmation from the poster that you are indeed correct before posting your riddle. Thank You

    This is a good one and I am going to guess, 11:00 am?

    No kaos please don't change the riddle. It's perfect. Now we're going to kind of make up the rules as we go so if I can ask a question, do each of the new cells double every 10 minutes as well? If I can't ask a question then call me rocky and throw me in the ocean. This is your call. You decide if I can ask a question or not.

    OK, so I'm figuring that you're saying it's OK to ask questions.

    Then my answer would be 11:59 am?

    OK I think this is going to be tough.

    I am the beginning of the end, and the end of time and space. I am essential to creation, and I surround every place. What am I?

    You may need a hint, after a couple attempts, I'll give one if needed.

    Only because you gave it to me. OK, now let's see.

    [TABLE="class: puzzle_table"]
    [TR]
    [TD]The man who invented it doesn't want it. The man who bought it doesn't need it. The man who needs it doesn't know it. What is it?
    [/TD]
    [TD="class: hintsolution"] :confused:
    [/TD]
    [/TR]
    [/TABLE]
