The awful burden of the unsolved riddles of existence. A riddle is a question or statement intentionally phrased so as to require ingenuity in ascertaining its answer or meaning, typically presented as a game. Many riddles are funny and many are unsolved riddles of existence. There are many different things that are unsolved because people have different opinions on the riddles. Some riddles that are unsolved to me are:who is the best hockey player because everyone has a different opinion?, Does a tree make a sound if it falls in a forest with no one around?, and Are you the same person you were five years ago?
One riddle that I think is unsolved is who is the best hockey player because everyone has a different opinion. To be perfectly honest I don’t have one person that I think is the best hockey player. The 2 people that I think are the best are Wayne Gretzky and Connor McDavid. The reason that I can’t pick which one is better is that Wayne played when the goalies weren’t as good and they had very small pads. Connor has been playing in the NHL since 2015 and has been the fastest since and has got close or over 100 points every year. Wayne on paper is better than Connor because of how many points he had but Connor is playing now and the sport has gotten way harder. In the long run, I think that Connor might get very close or meet the number of points that Wayne had.
Does a tree make a sound if it falls in a forest with no one around? Well, I would have to say that trees still make noise falling when no one is around. My opinion behind this might sound weird but trees don’t have like voice boxes to only make noise when someone is around. Also is the tree is in the forest there are other trees around it that it would hit and that would make a sound. In forests there are more than just other trees, there would be wildlife that have ears that would have to hear the tree falling.
Are you the same person you were five years ago? I don’t think that I am the same as I was 5 years ago because that was when I was in grade 4 and I’m now in grade 9. No one is the same as they were five years ago because a lot can happen in 5 years. For example for someone who isn’t even 5 yet wasn’t even alive 5 years ago. Then there are people like me and in five years my voice got deeper, I got more hair on my body, and I have grown a lot.
Hockey has changed so much in the last few years and there are many good players but I would have to say that Connor Mcdavid is the best. When trees fall they make sounds but do they do that when people aren’t there? Yes, they do because there is always something listening. People are never the same because they are always changing and becoming different. No matter what people ask you, you will always have a different answer because everyone is different.
