Daily Newbie Blender 9. Pocket full of sunshine :) (in Contests)

The Daily Newbie Blender. EASY MONEY.
$50,000 bounty for three complete answers.
$40,000 bounty for three acceptable answers.
$30,000 bounty for two* acceptable answers.
$20,000 bounty for an attempt at one answer.
$10,000 bounty for any sort of indication that you are read this and that you are making some sort of effort, regardless of how lackluster, to give me an answer.
$100,000+ daily** jackpot bounty for one assiduous contestant who goes above and beyond the call to arms. This will be everything on "2 Kool 4 Skool."


Take a sit, grab a drink. Put it on my tab. Everything you have read is true. All I want to do is ask you three questions. If you answer them, you get money. Simple as that. You do not even have to try, really. Hell, just send me a chatmail with '1. Yes. 2. Yes. 3. Yes.' and you are guaranteed to get at least an easy $10,000. I figure, absolutely, the least I can do for listening to me so far.

Still interested? Even curious perhaps? Why am I doing what I say I am doing? What AM I doing exactly? What is the catch? Here, I will even answer your questions first. If you could care less, just zone me out to the very end. Then I will ask you the three fabled questions. Chatmail me the answers. No strings attached. And thus, the story begins.

Why? It seemed like a good idea at the time. Due to the reception of the previous Daily Newbie Blenders, I figured that this format would help out more people. More bang for the buck, I think the old saying goes.

What? This is (not the fourth) installment of the Daily Newbie Blender, a daily contest designed to help newblets help themselves. I give out cute rewards freely, and all I ask for in return is a bit of socializing or wiki-foraging. If you have found the forums, wonderful. If you have met the community, even better. If you find that special tidbit that makes CB that game you keep returning to again and again, then hey! Sweet. And all I am doing is providing the next prong on the ladder to heaven.

Seriously? Yeah. There is some tiny rules though: first, each contestant can only win the jackpot once. Second, the bounties are curved in favor of the $40,000 bounty. Thirdly, although the daily jackpot CAN be won once daily, it does not mean that it WILL be won every day. Only an exceptional set of answers will be rewarded the pot (and if it is their first attempt, the $50,000 bounty as well!), and the jackpot will just slowly accumulate (something along the lines of +40k daily) until then. And that is about it. Good luck!

And, naturally, the DAILY QUESTIONS.
1. What is the difference between 1H melee weapons and 2H melee weapons?
2. Weapons' stats are listed in a [AxB] (+C) format. What does this mean?
3. A riddle. There is a thing that nothing is, yet it has a name. It's sometimes tall and sometimes short, joins our talks, joins our sport, and plays at every game. What is it?

Best of luck as always :D
