But very few college graduates can come up with the answer in 5 minutes.
If you have a guess, please hide the answer.

What is greater that God, more evil than the Devil, the poor have it, the rich need it, and if you eat it you die?

Honestly - my husband and I sat there for AGES trying to figure that out, and then felt like IDIOTS while the kids were giggling away :roll: .

I was thinking "Microsoft" at first, but could not figure out why poor people would have it?

hmm.. I disagree!
Rich need 'nothing'? I think its pretty hard to find a rich person who needs nothing.

Aaw, well, now I know why Kindergatners solve this easily.

She is right, Rich need relatively nothing.Rich people are definitely happier than poor/middle class atleast in many countries.

I agree.
Rich need relatively nothing.
Well I agree this one as well, but then it is a very debatable issue. The word 'relative' was not used in the question. Okay, that was me talking silly, I admit.
But I can only disagree with you, if you meant to say *rich need nothing*. That is totally wrong. Actually I could agree if some one says 'those who need nothing, are the richest' - and that is the richness gained by giving way or 'not wanting' ? or the Buddhist way of getting richer. In that respect, I could agree Goutham Buddha (founder of Buddhism) is the richest, because he knew he needs nothing.
But, you cannot have a rich (or rich, as we say rich) person who wants nothing.

Hmmm... probably not exactly the kind of stuff we'd like our kids to know.

But since they are the ones who get this 90% of the time, I guess they already do !

Is "Nothing" the answer.
I think the richer one gets the more one needs or wants!
IMHO
