1: Close enough.
2: Well, I can see how you came at code, but no. Code is not the right answer. If you need a hint, the word I'm looking for starts with the letter J.
3: Not quite right, but you're close. Think thinner than a charcoal.
4: Yup, good job.
One more for the day. This isn't a rhyming riddle, and it's kind of a trick question, but there's no ambiguous wording here. As with the others I posted, everything you need to solve the riddle is right there, in plain view:
A friend of mine told me a story about how his grandfather had died in Church.
According to this friend of mine, his grandfather passed away in his sleep, after dozing off in the middle of the sermon, and he went on to tell me about the dream his grand-dad was having up to that point.
His grandpa dreamed he was a nobleman during the French Revolution. Though he tried to hide and deflect the possibility of execution, he was found and sentenced, by an angry mob of revolutionaries, to death by decapitation. Time passed, and the grandpa/nobleman was eventually brought up to a stage, upon which sat a guillotine. The charges against him were read out, as was his sentence, to announce to all the reason he had been summoned from his prison on that day. He was lead up the stairs to the guillotine amid cheers from the masses, and when asked for his final words, tearfully said he had none to give. He was lead to the device by the executioner, and, after being secured in the stocks and having a basket placed under him to secure the severed head, was beheaded. At that moment, he died in the real world, exactly where he sat in the Church.
Now, I know my friend is just making up a story, here, but can you guess why?
We don't know what his grandfather was dreaming about if he died in his sleep.
