No takers yet, huh? Ok I'll add ANOTHER pair of clues:

"It is quite dark tonight, but this won't stop me!"
"I must hurry before it's too late!"
"It's a rather warm night for April!"
"I can't believe it was two! It could easily have been one!"
"Everyone awake! Awake I say! Your attention is needed in an emergency!"
"I am so glad there are others doing this, too, should I not make it all the way!"
"This is much more exciting than pulling another's tooth!"
"I love my horse, it's so reliable!"
"I was born in 1734."
"I helped organize an intelligence and alarm system."
"I was early to recognize the potential for large-scale manufacturing of metal."


Now who could have been able to say all these things?

Listen, my children, and you shall hear
Of the midnight ride of Paul Revere,
On the eighteenth of April, in Seventy-Five;
Hardly a man is now alive
Who remembers that famous day and year


Nice job! Now give this one a try:

I am also known as "origami" by some.
The most basic of me only takes 5 steps.
My origins are in question by many.
The earliest known date of my arrival was in the early 1900's, but the most accepted version was in 1930.
Since I was first born, there have been many improvements in my design.


What am I?

Paper airplane it is!
It was the origami comment, wasn't it?
:tounge:
Nice job! Give this one a try. (NOTE: I use the plural "we" to help the clues look better, but it's actually one word I'm after):


Most of the time we travel, but some of us are stationary.
We are part of the entertainment world.
We can be traced back to Ancient Rome.
Our one word name is also used with one or more words to describe that event as similar to what we are.
In fact, our one word name is used in music, in film, in television, in literature, in other entertainment and certain Open Spaces, among other uses.



What could we be?

Actually it was the most basic of me is five folds.

Kids in my school just did paper airplanes so it helped that they were fresh in my mind.

Given a couple days, I see no attempts, so I'll add a couple more clues!
(NOTE: I use the plural "we" to help the clues look better, but it's actually one word I'm after):

Most forms of us have animals about.
Most of us have rings.


What could we be?

It is indeed a circus!
"Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to the big top!"
:aecheers:

Give this one a go. I reduced the number of clues to (TRY) and make it last longer! I shall check every night and add one more clue until solved:



It is most likely that I was invented in 1500 BC in ancient Egypt.
I began as a spring-type, but later was made with a pivot.
My name is actually a plural noun.


What am I?

No guesses, huh? Ok, I'll add another clue:

I began as a spring-type, but later was made with a pivot.
My name is actually a plural noun.
Depending on my design or size, I can be used on paper, wire, hair, tin, plastic, rope, cardboard and even shrubs to name a few.

I can be found at the office, in school, and even on the space shuttle and everywhere in between; I am that useful.

Sorry, but you are one letter closer!

Yep, scissors it is! Fascinating tool with a sweet history.

Try this one. I'm going to give a bunch of clues all at once:


According to Wikipedia, I have been around for a really, really really long time.
According to Wikipedia, my original form was far from you are used to seeing today.
According to Wikipedia, I was, and still am, quite important to the world.
According to Wikipedia, I have always had different shapes and sizes, and have always varied in my makeup and design.
According to Wikipedia, my name is believed to originate from a temple of one of the Greek gods.
According to Wikipedia, my shape, size, makeup and design all play a part in my importance.


What am I?

I guess it's time to add a couple more clues:


According to Wikipedia, I have been around for a really, really really long time.
According to Wikipedia, my original form was far from you are used to seeing today.
According to Wikipedia, I was, and still am, quite important to the world.
According to Wikipedia, I have always had different shapes and sizes, and have always varied in my makeup and design.
According to Wikipedia, my name is believed to originate from a temple of one of the Greek gods.
According to Wikipedia, my shape, size, makeup and design all play a part in my importance.
According to Wikipedia, I usually have words, pictures and numbers on me.
Personal observation: I don't seem to last as long as I used to.
Personal observation: I see everyone wants me, no matter what it takes.


What am I?

Cha-Ching! Money is correct!

Let's move this into "overdrive"! This will give everyone a chance to participate! I will give 2 clues a day until someone guesses correctly. The person who does so first will then have a chance to give clues to their riddle, and so on until the end of the internet, the end of this thread, the end of SpicyLemons (NEVER!) or until the end of time!
I have my style of doing this, and everyone may have their own to use. So if you're into poetry, use that, if you're into simple one word clues, go for it, or if you like my style, it's available. The choice is up to you!
Ok, here are the clues:


I am a small to large evergreen tree growing to 212 m tall.
Outside of Hawaii and Australia, I am also commercially produced in South Africa, Brazil, California, Costa Rica and Israel, to name a few.


What am I?

BTW, if you do NOT wish to participate as a 'clue giver', please don't be afraid to say so in your guess. No one is obligated to give clues!

Another day, another pair of clues:


I am a small to large evergreen tree growing to 212 m tall.
Outside of Hawaii and Australia, I am also commercially produced in South Africa, Brazil, California, Costa Rica and Israel, to name a few.
There are many species of me, but only two are not poisonous.
I am usually propagated by grafting, and do not begin to produce until I am 710 years old, but once established, I may continue bearing for over 100 years.


What am I?

Gee, either this is harder than I thought, or no one's bothering any more!
In either case, here's two more clues:


My name as two words.
The first word has five syllables.

If you give up, please say so!
The above clues plus these two SHOULD make it easy!


I am fed to Macaws often.
I am toxic to dogs.
