# Short and fleet, what's the word?

Forward too fast
Accomplice of Bill
Arms of mass
Breaks the still


I'm going to start uploading daily riddles for fun during the weekdays. Some might be easier like this, others might be longer or more difficult, just something to work the mind a bit.

Here's a hint for Bill

The song is an identifier for a movie, a famous duo of movies...

• In general, but especially if you intend to make a running series of these, please use a descriptive title instead of "X Riddle #N". – Rubio Sep 7 '17 at 18:02
• Also note that unless they are very well-thought-out or innovative, daily riddles will get old fast, and will probably begin to garner downvotes, which is a message from the community that they've seen enough. – GentlePurpleRain Sep 7 '17 at 18:26
• And okay, I'll make sure to plan them out. I want them to be a work for my brain and as well as for all of yours. – Sensoray Sep 7 '17 at 18:27
• Is this likely to be easier for a specific national e.g. Americans? – Brent Hackers Sep 11 '17 at 12:42
• I don't think so, but I'll add a hint to give more light on the Bill I'm referencing. – Sensoray Sep 11 '17 at 13:27

My guess is

a gun (or, possibly, its bullets)

Forward too fast

A speeding bullet. Guns do their harm due to the tremendous speed with which the bullets travel, which carries a lot of kinetic energy in a small amount of mass.

Accomplice of Bill

The hint is the "Twisted Nerve" theme song from Kill Bill, vols. 1 & 2.
The titular Bill uses a gun - a Single Action Army .45 Long Colt with nickel finish, pearl "Bird's Head" grips, and custom muzzle brake.

Arms of mass

Firearms, which shoot mass (bullets) at their target
Also, and as intended by OP, people who have massive (muscular) arms are colloquially said to have "big guns".

Breaks the still

They're loud, breaking the stillness.

• @PaigeMeinke Thanks for the hint. (Removing your comment to preserve the mystery for other would-be solvers.) – Rubio Sep 21 '17 at 0:09

Teddy Roosevelt

Forward too fast

Famous for the Rough Riders' charge up San Juan Hill in the Spanish-American War

Accomplice of Bill

Famous for being William McKinley's Vice President

Arms of mass

Famous for amateur boxing

Breaks the still

Famous for being commissioner of New York City police during a pre-Prohibition crackdown on public drunkenness and Sunday saloon operations ("blue laws")

• Not a person, but I love the interpretation. Not that kind of still. – Sensoray Sep 8 '17 at 23:21

is it

snake (or black mamba)

Forward too fast

snakes move faster in forward direction

Accomplice of Bill

bill had a nick name snake-charmer, also Beatrix's nickname is black mamba

Arms of mass

snakes can take shapes as if they have no bones

Breaks the still

no idea yet

• Nope, nice idea though. The first three lines can be taken as different interpretations of the word. – Sensoray Sep 18 '17 at 12:17
