Here's my first ordinary riddle :

You can look at me for a really long time, even for hours, without getting bored

And I get more and more hot as time goes by

Yet once the power is cut off

You do not even pay the slightest attention to me

As if I am just a useless object

Many say that I am not a good influence, especially to youngsters

But in almost every home, I will always be there

  • $\begingroup$ It's good to try something new. You have made many nice riley riddles, and now you are attempting at some ordinary riddles. I have never written an ordinary riddle (yet), as I always like to incorporate a bit of rhyme and poetry in mine (as well as some originality to make my riddle different and unique) :) $\endgroup$ – Mr Pie Aug 14 '18 at 11:11

  • $\begingroup$ @ShahriarMahmudSajid thank you. I'm trying to make more but can't seem to make some other anagrams. I was thinking, for example: The man did not desire to reside in such a small apartment. But I am running out of other ideas. $\endgroup$ – Mr Pie Aug 14 '18 at 11:21
