    Re: Body Riddle

    I will accept your revised 1 Hans [img]/forums/images/smilies/smile.gif[/img], but the 4 sadly i cannot, a staircase doesn't really have a 'head' as much as a top, but i can give you a small clue - 4. Almost everyone has one - but tramps/bums do not normally.

    Re: Body Riddle

    English is not my mother tongue, so I'm sure you're correct, but for instance the entry Head in Open dictionary lists 32 meanings for the noun head. No 7 is
    <hr>7. head -- (the top of something; "the head of the stairs"; "the head of the page"; "the head of the list").<hr>
    A Google search for "head of the stairs" returns 15,100 hits.

    Re: Body Riddle

    Then i will accept your answer as proven by logic - the answer i was looking for was <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">Bed</span hide> however. 5 still needs an attempt too <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>
