To all of you who replied, thank you very much. I need help with a few riddles.

1)Eternally I am 1 to 6,
eternallyI am 15 to 20,
I am always 5,
but I am never ever 21 unless I am flying,
what am I ???

2) I am in the sea BUT not in the water
I start in March and end in December
You find me neither in peace nor war
Many have me but few don't
I am in the shadows but not in a dark place
You see me twice in 2004

3) A man has to take two pills each day, at the exact same time or he will die. If he only takes one or he takes two of the same pill he will die. Both medications look the same and are the same weight. One day he drops both open pill bottles scattering the pills across the floor. There are two pills left in one bottle. How can he take his pills so he won't die?

4)Thousands of us all around you.
We protect you all the time.
Yet you treat us badly.
You burn us in public buildings
to make you seem better.
You try to make us straight
but most of us refuse usually.
When we are dead, you are pleased.
Yet, when we are gone, you are sad.
What are we?

5)What is always before you, yet you never see it?

I have a few more I can't solve, but I'll post them later. Again, I know they're hard, but thank you to everyone who attempts to and who actually does solve them. Good luck!

3) he goes to the doctor's to get a new order?
hey! I will take a stab at the second one

I was sure that it was a letter but couldn't figure out what....and then I looked at it from the last line...since it appears twice in 2004 what can it be? 0? yea don't make very much senseEmotion: wink..yea so I was pulling my hair out!! Emotion: sad( hahaa then something hit me...2004 in latin...is MMIV..and then everything kinda started making sense...may be???

2) I am in the sea BUT not in the water

In latin

Sea=Mare or Maris

Water=aqua

so the letter M is in sea but not in water

I start in March and end in December

Latin calender used to be 10months calender that started with the month March and ended in decemberEmotion: wink

You find me neither in peace nor war

Peace=pax pacis

War=bello

neither in english nor in latin peace and war contain the letter M

Many have me but few don't
it appears in many but not in the word few

I am in the shadows but not in a dark place

in latin Shadow=umbra
so you got the letter M again...

hahaa this is the best i can make sense out of this puzzle...it's a good one..but too hard one for me....may be I am wrong...but i think it's a latin riddle so I would say the answer is the letter M..cuz it makes the most senseEmotion: smile

best of luck!! hope this helped

Emotion: smile

Personally, I think it's a rather not very good riddle
hmm i think that would be the first logical thing to do...but if given the cost of te medicine is alot then i will just take them to the pharmacist and ask him/her...cuz after all they should know ...and if that don't work then?? since you said he spilled them i am assuming the medicine is capsule so i will open up the capsule for all the tablet and divide it into equal portions and take one each dayEmotion: wink...hahahaa...don't laugh at me...but it just a thoughtEmotion: wink
Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?
i no one user already said the answer in evry fourth letter, but I heard a variation of this and the answer could also be

every fourth letter
