As cold as death;
Never thirsty, ever drinking,
All in mail never clinking
Well done to Clifton! I was thinking a fish as well, up till line four. That part threw me and the riddle still knocks at my door. TyTanium or Clifton two good Sirs, would either of you mind exlaining a little bit? If I dont know soon I'l go crazy for sure.

I never was, am always to be. No one ever saw me, nor ever will. And yet I am the confidence of all, To live and breath on this terrestrial ball. What am I?

Her mail is the fishes armor.
Scales protect from those who'd harm'er.

10 politicians had a political meeting,
welcoming each other with the conventional greeting.
Though due to each man's insecurity,
No man would shake with someone taller than he.
If every man was a different height,
How many total handshakes that night?

[ hint: 9+8+7+6...+1 = 45 ]
