Hey,

Thought it would be nice to post some riddles here, so here we go:

1. Why can't a man from north carolina be buried in south carolina?

2. What goes up and down but never moves?

1. Because he isn't dead yet. I think the phrasing is "Why can't a man living in North Carolina be buried in South Carolina?"

2. An elevator. It does not move on its own. Instead, it is pulled and lowered. Another answer is the temperature, but you probably didn't want me to say that.

--------

My turn. Since you spoke of the Southern United States... What does it mean when a suthner says "keer"?

2) A windows box. If you're lucky it goes up (boots), then after a while it goes down again. And unless you install a different OS it's not going anywhere.

2(alternative)) The sun. And that's not accurate because it's not the center of the universe, so it does move relative to other stars.
