    A riddle or 2 for you

    Thought I would pass some time this off-season and see if anyone out there likes riddles. See if you can solve them.

    1) What happened in 1961 that will not happen again for over 4000 years?

    2) A 16-year-old boy was driving a moped down a one-way street in the wrong direction. A policeman stopped him and gave him a ticket. The policeman paid the ticket himself. What is a logical explanation for this?

    3) What is so fragile that when you say its name you break it?

    4) Forward I am heavy, backwards I am not. What am I?

    5) What object has keys that open no locks, space but no room, and you can enter but not go in?

    6) My scale is something that does not weigh in grams, ounces, or pounds. However, I may be heavy or light. What am I?

    7) What do bullet proof vests, fire escapes, windshield wipers, and laser printers all have in common?

    Re: A riddle or 2 for you

    #7 is driving me nuts....does anyone have an answer?

    They are all man made? They all end in "s" I can't figure it out....there must be something more to it.
