A potato’s key tool, I have all the power.I am generally used on the half or full hour.If my cells were deceased or lost or the such,My partner would only respond to your touch.

Two Ropes

You are given two ropes and a lighter. This is the only equipment you can use. You are told that each of the two ropes has the following property: if you light one end of the rope, it will take exactly one hour to burn all the way to the other end. But it doesn’t have to burn at a uniform rate. In other words, half the rope may burn in the first five minutes, and then the other half would take 55 minutes.The rate at which the two ropes burn is not necessarily the same, so the second rope will also take an hour to burn from one end to the other, but may do it at some varying rate, which is not necessarily the same as the one for the first rope. Now you are asked to measure a period of 45 minutes.How will you do it?

The Duo

Mates unbalanced,Or so they seem;But paired in tandem,A deadly team.She so gently round,Him so firm and straight,Yet when they are compounded,Woe to them they hate.

One Thing

What is the one thing in the world that can speak all languages?

Gone To Pot

Late afternoons I often bathe.I’ll soak in water piping hot.My essence goes through my see through clothes.Used up am I; I’ve gone to pot.

Round I Start

Round I start, yet no shape have I.Allow me to breathe, and my life will die.The older I grow, the more sought after I become.You will feel much better when I am done.
