Hi All-
I like riddles, so I thought it would be fun to have a riddle contest If you know a riddle post it and see if anyone can answer it! I'll go first:
"Whats as tall as a castle, light as air, and a million people couldn't move it?"

These are all good answers, however none are the correct ones for the riddle.(even though they fit the criteria) I'll give a hint..the object is on the ground, not in the air.

A beam of sunlight.
(actually I think "the shadow of a castle" is more likely the correct answer)

I still prefer rainbow.
A shadow conforms to the surface with no perceived height. The length of a shadow would also change in size, from many times the height of the object to nothing at all.

The first error is the error is mis-spelt.
Second error - the statement says there r 2 errors, when in fact there is only one.. ??
