I can't even guess at the riddle but I'm curious to know what it is (and slap myself in the head when the answer's revealed!)

Christine Rains said...

I was going to say something about dinosaurs, but then the women comment at the end threw me. But... maybe... Jurassic World?

M.J. Fifield said...

You are Jurassic Park. I think.

Love the Realms Faire!

SA Larsenッ said...

Geez, I stink at this stuff. You have me at 65 million years... It's the women comment that's throwing me for a loop. My brain first went to Star Wars, but then was like no. Then to Star Trek, same reaction. Why do I want to say Buck Rogers???? lol

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Jurassic Park! Michael Crichton. Cool you included a line from the movie.

L. Diane Wolfe said...

It has to be Jurassic Park.

Natalie Aguirre said...

I really don't know the answer to this, although some people seem pretty sure what this is.

Julie Flanders said...

Jurassic Park by Michael Crichton. Cool!

Chrys Fey said...

Jurassic Park? The "women will inherit the earth" tipped me off on that. My favorite line! :D

Nick Wilford said...

Jurassic Park by Michael Crichton! Wasn't there something about the scariest raptors being female? Or am I imagining that?

Southpaw HR Sinclair said...

My thought was Jurassic Park too. Now, I'm sure of it, since everyone else thinks so too. ;)

M Pax said...

I'm pretty sure it's my all-time favorite movie. A perfect pairing with my books. :D

Misha Gericke said...

Awesome riddle! Took me a bit to figure out. :-)

Michelle Wallace said...

It's something to do with dinosaurs??
That's my guess. I don't have a title. When it comes to movies I'm USELESS! Hahaha!

alexia said...

Jurassic Park!! I love those movies and read the book when I was twelve. Michael Crichton is the author. The new one is extra fab because of Chris Pratt. Plus Chris Pratt as a raptor trainer. Plus Chris Pratt on a motorcycle. The only part they missed was Chris Pratt without his shirt on (like in GotG). Sequel needs to include that :)

Plus, yay Realms Faire!!

Nas said...

Puzzling! Jurassic Park...I'm thinking.

Kimberly said...

I'm going to say the original Jurassic Park! :) Yippee for Realms Faire time!

Susan Flett Swiderski said...

I'm late to the party, but it sounded like Jurassic Park to me, too, except for the line about females inheriting the world. It's been so long since I read that book, I didn't remember that line. At all.

Patricia Lynne said...

Jurassic Park. The last line totally gave it away.

Cathrina Constantine said...

I have to go with Jurassic Park since that's the consensus!!!!

Emilyann Girdner said...

Fun riddle! I don't have a guess though. Too clever for me, haha. This will be a fun week :)

Cathy Keaton said...

These riddles are going to be hard! Everyone is saying Jurassic Park, but I don't know based on what I could figure out myself. I've never read the book.

I'll have to see if I can solve a different one.

TBM said...

I'm horrible at riddles, just take a peek at my GRE logic score for confirmation.

Yolanda Renee said...

I didn't guess either and now I know why, I fail at GRE logic too! :)
