    I got sent the following in one of those chain email things. My sisters send me all kinds of stuff. But I thought this riddle was pretty thought provoking. See if you know the answer. I've also included the send to 10 people thing because it is germain to the answer of the riddle. If you think you get the answer, please don't post it here, but PM me.

    The Riddle:
    When asked this riddle, 80% of kindergarten kids got the answer, compared to 17% of Stanford University seniors.

    What is greater than God, More evil than the devil, The poor have it, The rich need it, And if you eat it, you'll die?

    Send this to 10 people and then press shift and you will get the answer.

    Good Luck!

    I know what it is. I have it on my riddles site, and I get a lot of hits from people who enter the whole riddle into their search engine.

    Fish;

    Too bad you edited Post#3. In my mind it said it all, or perhaps it said Nothing !? [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif[/img]

    OK, I forgot about this post!

    "Nothing" is greater than God.
    "Nothing" is nmore evil than Stan.
    The poor have "Nothing".
    The rich need "Nothing".
    If you eat "Nothing", you'll die.
    And if you press the shift key after sending this to 10 people, "Nothing" happens.
