Yea but I’m so tired that I thought I was dreaming that I heard this riddle from you before. But in fact, I think you posted it on the question me thread. Wasn’t it based on one of your parents’ true family setup? Or was that something else?

Two fathers and two sons find three gold coins.
Each one of them takes a whole gold coin and puts it in his pocket.

How could that be?

Who am I?

I am mightyer than G-D, and more evil than the devil
The poor man has me, the happy person wants me

I was there before the world was created and I will be there after it ends...
