I have one :P.

I'm at the end of time and space. I'm the begging of the end. Humans cannot speak without me. What am I?

I have one,

A man is alone in a box. He is naked and the room is totally empty, not even a light.

How does he escape?

Eh...

You said the room is empty, so he's not in there..?
I have no idea :/

Probably by walking out :P
Ok now serious: he must have gotten in there on some way, so he can just go out the same way, because there can't be a door because the room is totally empty.(depends on if you see the door as a part of the room or not)

Is there an open spot for a riddle?

I couldn't be bothered to read through 10 pages of riddles to see if this one had been said though even if it hasn't I'm sure many people have heard of it, it seems to be rather popular.

Riddle:
A man goes on a journey to find a fabled lost city full of riches beyond his wildest dreams and on his way to said city he comes across a cross-road, apart from the road he took to reach this cross road there are two paths, he is told that one path will lead him to hell where he will suffer for the rest of his life whereas the other will take him directly to the lost city, once he has started walking down one of the paths he cannot change his mind.

Standing in the middle of the crossroads are two dwarfs, one who always lies and one who always tells the truth, who know the way to the city though he is not told which dwarf lies and which does not. They tell him they he may ask one of them one question, what single question will tell him which way leads to the city?

surely the room is totally irrelevant, as he is in a box?
does he simply break the box?

Riddle:
Spoiler

The question could be:
"What would the other dwarf say if I'd ask him if the left road leads to the city?"

Case 1: The left road is indeed the way into the city.
Spoiler
Case 2: The left road does NOT lead into the city.
Spoiler

Ergo, when I get a "No" as the answer to my question, I take the left path. Otherwise the right path.

What has a bed but never sleeps, a mouth but never eats, and a head but never sees?

The person who makes it has no need for it. The person who purchases it does not use it. The person who does use it does not know he or she is. What is it?

2 fathers and 2 sons go fishing. Each of them catches one fish. So why do they bring home only 3 fish?

the sons both have the same father, though that still doesn't quite make sense

One of them is both father and son.

Like this:
A is the father of B.
But B is also the father of C.

Ergo: There are 3 persons.

If you look you cannot see me. And if you see me you cannot see anything else. I can make anything you want happen, but later everything goes back to normal. What am I?
