    After a night of heavy drinking, Johnny stumbled out of the bar and walked across the parking lot straight over to his jet black car, there was no artificial lights, no street lamps, no moon out, no stars, and no car alarm to flash the lights.
    How did he find his car?

            You got it. I don't think the makers of the riddle consider the sun artificial light.

    What is worse than the kingdom of hell,

    but better than the kingdom of heaven as well?

    On it the dead shall always dine,

    but the living who do will surely die.


    What is it?

      dormadyposted 8 years agoin reply to this

      I think the answer to the first part: "what is better than Heaven and worse than hell?"is
      Taking someone with you to Heaven and taking someone with you to hell.
