The word I had in mind was "gullible".

Sorry, omid this one [:-'(]

I can be short and sometimes hot.
When displayed, I rarely impress.
What am I? ;)

My temper

Thank You Imatfaal ;D

What's so peculiar about this sentence?

I do not know where family doctors acquired illegibly perplexing handwriting; nevertheless, extraordinary pharmaceutical intellectuality, counterbalancing indecipherability, transcendentalizes intercommunications' incomprehensibleness. ;)

I think this problem is overintellectualizing

Well Done Imatfaal, omid impressed ;D

What's so special about the following sentence?

A big cuddly dog emitted fierce growls, happily ignoring joyful kids licking minute nuts on pretty queer rotten smelly toadstools underneath vampires who x-rayed young zombies;)

Only 3 words are in the English dictionary.
Also there are many questions that nobody can answer "yes" to; the usual answer to this riddle is "what does N O spell?".
There are lots of other possible answers like "who many beans make 5?" or "what's my middle name?".

And just to show off, I've suddenly spotted the answer to this one:

The first word comprises one letter and each word thereafter has one more letter than it's preceding word. In other words the 1st word has one letter, the 2nd has two, the third has three, and so on right up to an impressive twenty letters long. Ta daa!

Hi Omid

I think you might have already given us this puzzle. So I don't know why it's not been answered quicker.

The answer, I believe, is COAL.

 ;D

We're all stumped on this one. I think you'd better give us a clue because this threads ground to a halt.

Go on, Omid

Give us a clue
Give us a clue
Give us a clue

Dark with white markings,
And smooth like a rock.
Where learning occurs,
I help convey thought.
What am I? ;)

We capture light, and yet we don't.
We reflect rays of sun, and yet we don't.
Without us all the world is gray and dull for everyone.
What are we? ;)

Oooo, they're getting tricky.

At first I thought it might be 'eyes', then I thought maybe a rainbow or even a colour camera but none of those really fit. This one's definately superhero-proof.  :)

Thank you John :)

There are 2 cops parked along a one-way street looking for traffic violations.
They spot a taxi driver going in the wrong direction, yet they do nothing.
Why? ;)
