An oxymoron, I always thought.

Extremely invaluable, but I would think not.

Not a What am I, but what is it?

oh, don't be silly. It isn't oxymoron in any sense. When you get it, you'll KNOW!!

Hint

I've blatantly given you the answer in my riddle, while writing it, I was so surprised to find the word which fit SO perfectly.

there is a perfect little logic-problem set up in your riddle

i have solved it

the answer cannot be outside your riddle, so to speak, because you are trapped by your construction

read it again when we find your answer

do you want

worthless

PRICELESS

this is it, exactly

and for dancer:

you still seem backwards, here it is:

An oxymoron, I always thought (pretty straight forward: I always thought priceless was an oxymoron)

Extremely invaluable (priceless means invaluable)

But I would think not. (it would appear by the "price" and the "less" put together that it should mean worthless)

ahem

you need the opposite of priceless

worthless!!!!!

because

an oxymoron, you always thought. means extremely invaluable, but it is not.

priceless IS not an oxymoron

not even close

the oxymoron in your riddle is that we have to think THE OPPOSITE

so worthless

two opposites

yours is clever

but this is super duper clever

You're wrong.

you're forgetting the words "I always thought"

and "I would think not"

an oxymoron, you always thought. means extremely invaluable, but it is not. (not that it isn't but that it seems that it should not be)

And I know it is not an oxymoron, but "I always thought."

See it this way.

As a child, I looked at the words priceless and worthless as aughtin' to be worked out the same (worth+less=can't buy it for a penny)(price+less=can't buy it for a penny either because you can't put a price on it)

Now, this is right, you can't put a price on it, because it's SO valuable that it can't be bought. But, seeing it through "my childish eyes" you would think it wasn't worth anything.

Do you get that at least?

I can't believe this

did you see also my "do I need to simplify" post

you yourself are saying what can't you buy for a penny and can't afford at a penny

something priceless worthless

like a soul

or air

that is the oxymoron

it is a way of answering an amazing riddle

which this is

best I've ever seen

but you insist on stopping half way

this is not two riddlers talking, you have your answer, move past it and consider what I'm saying
