I always remembered it as (Down)-(Down Forward)-(Forward)-(Punch)... though I was usually Blanka or Dhalsim. My friend always abused Hadoken as Ryu though, whenever we played, so rage-inducing is right.

A boy was at a carnival and went to a booth where a man said to the boy, "If I write your exact weight on this piece of paper then you have to give me $50, but if I cannot, I will pay you $50."

The boy looked around and saw no scale so he agrees, thinking no matter what the carny writes he'll just say he weighs more or less.

In the end the boy ended up paying the man $50. How did the man win the bet?

 By telling him he weighs 1, measured in units of himself (the boy).

Imagine a cool peice of sky-blue and milk-white marble about 3cm by 2cm and by 0.5cm, containing a tiny 2mm malacolite crystal. Now imagine the miles of metamorphic rock it's embedded in that no pick or chisel will ever touch. Then, imagine that those miles will melt back into their mantle long before any telescope even refracts an image of their planet. The watchers will be so excited to have that image too.

Heh, such a awesome answer that I'll say correct. The original answer was hat he wrote "your exact weight" on the paper just as he said he would

 I probably should have come up with a riddle before answering...
