I received this riddle via e-mail the other day. It was written by Paul Harvey. When asked this riddle, 80% of Kindergarten kids got the answer, compared to 17% of Stanford University seniors. Here it is:
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?
P.S. If you are having trouble thinking of the answer to this riddle, just press the "Shift" key and you will get the answer.
P.S.S. I actually got this right (before I pressed the "Shift" key). So, I guess I rank right up there with the Kindergarten kids.
