Hello all.
I'm fairly new to Sleuth and I thought I might share a little hobby of mine with you all. Here's something for that sad moment when the mysteries of the day are all done.

Thousands lay up gold within this house,
but no man made it.
Spears past counting guard this house,
but no man wards it.
What is it?

Am I right in thinking that twins, in unusual circumstances, can be born up to three days apart anyway? I'm sure that would be a rather silly answer to the riddle, though : o )

Ok, I have one:
A girl walks into a bar, with a closed fist she sees her sister dead, on a barstool. She asks what happened. The bartender says,"She asked for a drink, she got a drink..."

"Did you kill her?"

"No see..."

What happened?

Did the dead sister have a closed fist, or you when you walked in, I am a little confused.

Maybe she was allergic to alcohol, or her liver failed. This is definitely a hard one...

Mrs.Zane is the closest so far... the dead sister (at that moment alive) walked into the bar, after discovery of much bad news in her life. She wished to have a shot a whiskey "with extra power", but the bartender mistook it for a suicide plea, through poison. So, technically, he didn't murder her, it was but an accident... or was it?

If two hours ago, it was as long after one o'clock in the afternoon as it was before one o'clock in the morning, what time would it be now?
