In light of that I suggest 2 alternative answers (for 1 & 3):

1st riddle is, I must admit, w/o a fix answer. It is, sort of, like, where to place the One Ring so that Sauron never finds it. But, since there is no Sauron on Earth, I reckon your answer will do. Unless you 'consider' aliens you bastard!

As per kamikaze, that is not the 'expected answer'. Not in the slightest.

Maybe it is; but there IS an answer as well.


The kamikaze riddle.

That is acceptable. However, I wonder whether or not I can accept it. This was a hint regarding the intended answer.

Yeah. Right. No. That is NOT the correct answer. And thank You for flying the American Pride !!

Let me put it this way. After all, it's Christmas time. Why, oh why! do we die?!

Enough with Star Trek already. You made me giggle though.

The 2nd riddle is a matter of [hide]when[/hide] and 4th riddle is a matter of [hide]why[/hide].

4. You die because of old age.

You see, when you are old your hair turns white.  Some prefer to die their hair.

Yes! I mean, oh no! Highlander, an adventure action fantasy film, anyone?

'When' will a kamikaze die? Does that help? I take it you 'were' in World War II? So, stop dishonoring the glorious dead and solve this riddle... right now! And gimme one hundred push-ups too! That's 'each' of you. And - - - happy New Year!

Just consider a certain timeline. Certainly not this one! What kind of a way would that be?!

Trick question.  Usually it is in many places.  Or spread over a wide area.

Quite the opposite. You're right about this being a trick question and all.

Towr ought to know the answer for sure because of his country's name. There is something 'bout it.

Who ever said that a kamikaze 'will' die? Does that help at all?

2. Where will a kamikaze die?

He will die [hide]nowhere. Why you ask? Well allow me to tell you! Kamikaze do not EXIST no more. Sure, there are living bombs, fatalists and such, and yet, to me, it is not proper to steal, although misplaced, Japanese pride. Ask William. I dislike war. When did you hear or see as of late Japanese kamikaze attacking Allied ships?! Come on, towr. Prove me to be 100 percent wrong. [/hide]
