[This is my first post on Brain Den(I'm just trying to get used to it), so please don't leave any negative comments about my riddle. Helpful criticism is always welcome. Now on to the riddle..]



If I gave you 5 nickels for every nickle I gave you and then took a nickle away for every 5 of those nickles, still keeping the original nickal and I gave you and I gave you a nickel every 5 minutes for the next 25 years. How many nickels would you have?

I'm not criticizing because I've been known to do this myslef, but be conscious of homophones in your riddles. In this case the distinction between nickel and nickles. Nickel is not a countable object, as it is an element. You used the two interchangeably. On the whole I like the riddle a lot, and I will have to go with this as my answer:

Who cares about the nickal or the nickle? Maybe I'M the one who is over looking something, but I think it needs to be overlooked. What I noticed in the words of this riddle is. . .

Actually, a Nickel is also US Currency, a coin worth $.05. Here's a website explaining that: http://mistupid.com/currency/

I'd actually never heard of Nickle, but a quick websearch told me it is a Programming Language: http://nickle.org/
