    Riddle me this...

    Just killing time at the shop, started looking at riddles.

    A What falls but never breaks? What breaks but never falls?
    SOLVED by littlematt

    B This number is the only one of its kind: 8,549,176,320
    Can you figure out what is so special about it?
    SOLVED by littlematt

    C A dozen Royals gathered round, Entertained by two who clowned.
    Each King there had servants ten, Though none of them were also men.
    The lowest servant sometimes might, Defeat the King in a fair fight.
    A weapon stout, a priceless jewel, The beat of life, a farmer's tool.
    What are we talking about here folks?
    SOLVED by littlematt

    Add some, yo.

    A & C are answered correctly. (Night & Day, Deck of Cards)

    B is not correct.

    Here's a couple more:
    D
    More powerful than God.
    More evil than the devil.
    The poor have it.
    The rich need it.
    If you eat it, you'll die.

    E There's something unusual about the following paragraph. Can you determine what it is?
    Gatsby was walking back from a visit down in Branton Hill's manufacturing district on a Saturday night. A busy day's traffic had had its noisy run; and with not many folks in sight, His Honor got along without having to stop to grasp a hand, or talk; for a mayor out of City Hall is a shining mark for any politician. And so, coming to Broadway, a booming bass drum and sounds of singing, told of a small Salvation Army unit carrying on amidst Broadway's night shopping crowds. Gatsby, walking towards that group, saw a young girl, back toward him, just finishing a long, soulful oration ...

    Nothing. [Not that I believe in God or the Devil]

    B - Is it to do with the first letters of the numbers when written being in alphabetical order?

    A father and his son are involved in a car accident, as a result of which the son is rushed to hospital for emergency surgery. The surgeon looks at him and says "I can't operate on him,i am too distraught, he's my son". Explain.
