Is there any evidence that these robbers didn't use a bolt cutter to break the lock?

I don't think it matters. They could have used a cutting torch for that matter. I think we can assume that they just used the bobby pin, though.

footsteps are everywhere.

This is what threw me off from the beginning. Do you mean footprints, or do you actually hear footsteps after you investigate the shed?

I don't think it matters.

Considering the question:

how did they get into the shed quickly and quitely?

It sounds like it's the only thing that really needs solving, and they could have broken into the shed quietly in any number of ways. Whether it's a bobby pin or a lock-picking kit or a bolt cutter, you aren't going to hear any of it if you're asleep.

I think either the question is too vague and needs rephrasing, or the riddle is very simple and the intended answer is that the robbers used the bobby pin to break into the shed.

But then that wouldn't make it a riddle

Which leads me to the main part of the riddle I focused on..and the main part I believe everyone should focus on:

this is my own original riddle

Last time we had an "original riddle" (excluding MattEm's) it caused chaos

A proper riddle


    I talk, but I do not speak my mind
    I hear words, but I do not listen to thoughts
    When I wake, all see me
    When I sleep, all hear me
    Many heads are on my shoulders
    Many hands are at my feet
    The strongest steel cannot break my visage
    But the softest whisper can destroy me
    The quietest whimper can be heard.

I know the answer, from Google, but I don't get it. This riddle is technically a charade. But I have yet to find a good source to explain what a written charade is (as they say the clues to the answer are given syllable by syllable, but I don't see how). Also, I have yet to see a solid explaination of the answer.

My riddle still hasn't been answered. Reton8 stated he found the answer..but never gave the answer

Hint: With the answer to the riddle..think about the actions that character performs and the job it must do..and how the riddle describes different moments of the job
