Question

Guest

Spinning round and round

Growing longer and longer.

As space grows short,

so too, does time.

You sit there, watching, waiting.

Not sure how easy this is. Its my first riddle in quite a while, hope you enjoy!

the way I'm thinking right now is this: the Sun? or the Earth?

As the Earth spins on itself, the orbit grows longer as space (literally) gets smaller and our time on Earth shortens...while the Sun sits watching and waiting...

Maybe I just have a crazy imagination...:blush:

No hits yet. Its not any sort of celestial object. The answer is something I'm sure you all encounter this all the time.

No, its not any sort of sweet. In fact, not any sort of food at all. By the way I'm keeping this tab open, so it will say I am on, though I may not look at it too often.

First, an analogue clock. This was the last of the three to pop into my little head, but the most likely and best fit. The second was someone stopped at a stoplight. The third was someone dying in a hospital. The last two were just poetic images, though, that I thought about as I read the riddle.

Sorry Molly, good guesses, but no. Now, think about this; How could I be sure you encounter this all the time? Focus on lines 3 and 4. Imagine the image in your head.

EDIT: Just not noticed araiT's post, it was on a different page. No, not that either. This isn't about something profound. This riddle mentions two different kinds of the same thing, too. The thing that they both are is the answer.

Yoda??

Spinning round and round - The Death Star, orbiting around Endor...

Growing longer and longer. - it was under construction, so getting bigger and bigger...

As space grows short, - The Empire was controlling more and more territory...

so too, does time. - The Resistance was being slowly crushed...

You sit there, watching, waiting. - Yoda sat waiting for someone to train who could defeat the Empire...

Still no hits. And sorry dyalDragon, I just felt like putting something sounding like Yoda as title. It may actually be a quote, I'm not sure. Guys, this isn't something profound, like life or age or infinity. Its not anything like that. If I can think of a few verses as a hint, I'll post 'em.

Edit: Hinty repost of last line.

You sit there, watching, waiting.

A hurricane

A tower defense game

A car journey

Queue for a concert or whatever

Some good answers, quite a few things it could be, but which one is it?

Rush me too much

and I'll cause trouble

Make the window frost over

Still no hits. Remember these lines:

As space grows short,

so too, does time

I'm leaving for a vacation tonight, so if no one gets it by then, I'll post the answer.

this doesn't happen to ME regularly but waiting for a plane? OR, maybe it's any form of transportation? as you sit and wait more people arrive therefore space grows short, literaly, and time goes by therefore the waiting time also grows shorter...am I waaay off?

:unsure:
