For the people that are looking for things that only happen once (such as your birth or death or 7th birday, etc) that would also be the first time, so that doesn't work.

And I don't think it's time, cuz if time DID come into being, this 'time' that we are 'in' is the 'first time' literally. And its too metaphysical, and as bonanova said, the boy seemed sure, so it's not something religious i hope.

So my best guess would be for something thats IMPOSSIBLE but people might say NOTHING'S IMPOSSIBLE so... yeah... how about something truthfully saying that "This statement is a lie" or some sort of paradox...?

Yeah I'm interested to hear the answer too.

Maybe the first time for something that happens with another pair since it goes from 0 to 2? But then that would be the first time for a pair to happen...? Hmm this is a good one! ;D

Where oh where has our riddler gone? where oh where could he be?

I Dug this one up from the archives, but it's pretty clear the OP will not be around to post the answer he/she had in mind:

I'm also interested if there are any other new ideas for this one. I'd have to say...

Spoiler for possible answer

I agree with Itachi, and i looked at the person who made this, and he last visited Aug. 9. I wonder what his answer is if it was not black :mellow:

He realizes there will never be a first time for someone proving that something doesn't have a first time.

But in doing so, he proves that something doesn't have a first time, so he proves himself false. He creates a paradox :huh:
