My vote would be "nothing", as in a trick riddle, because NOTHING fits.

A close second would be Chuck Norris, like Phins said, lol.

The problem with this riddle is that I don't know what the hell am I looking for. It's not like it says "what am I?". There isn't even an objective question. It just says "can you guess this riddle".

That was a pretty good guess but a few are reaches. Most notably the last few. It says "if you squeeze/look at me". What would you look at that would cause you to depressurize? It's a pretty good guess though.

If that's not the answer, it's certainly on the right track. Nice stuff.

Doesn't fully answer it.

I turn polar bears white (Evolutionary dominizzo)
and I will make you cry. (Emotional dominizzo)
I make guys have to pee (Bladder dominizzo)
and girls comb their hair. (Social dominizzo)
I make celebrities look stupid (Crack from dominizzo-e.g. Tom Cruise)
and normal people look like celebrities. (Overcoming dominizzo envy)
I turn pancakes brown (Denny's surprise dominizzo)
and make your champane bubble. (CO2 dominizzo^2)
If you sqeeze me, I'll pop. (Increase dominizzo)
If you look at me, you'll pop. (Dedominizzo)

"Look" can also mean "to visit" as in "Look in on". Example: (http://dictionary.reference.com/search?q=look)"I look in on my grandparents each weekend."

If you visit a place of lower pressure such as space or high atmosphere, you will pop.

"If you sqeeze me, I'll pop" If you squeeze something that is already under pressure, like a balloon, it will pop and the pressure is dissipated.

I don't know if this is the riddler's intended answer or not, but often times riddles are based on alternate usages of words, where one aspect of the riddle applies to only a very limited example of the word's usage.

Does anyone know the source of the riddle and it's intended answer?

also, polar bears' fur is not white, it is transparent, only ultraviolet light absorption is why the fur appears white....so I don't think "pressure" fits there.

in the yahoo boards and here I've seen many mention that the question at the end is "who/what am I?", but "can you guess the riddle?", to which the answer is 'No.'

See the post above this quoted one.




also, polar bears' fur is not white, it is transparent, only ultraviolet light absorption is why the fur appears white....so I don't think "pressure" fits there.

First of all color is not an absolute quality of anything. Our eye's translate light reflected from objects to our brain, where it is interpreted as color. Some people (color blind) see a different color than others when they look at red or green.

The point in the riddle could ask "why are polar bears white?" If they were orange they wouldn't survive because they wouldn't be camouflaged. Evolutionary theory says that species develope within their environment to be best suited for their survival. Therefore survival pressures have eliminated other colors of polar bears, thereby turning polar bears white.



in the yahoo boards and here I've seen many mention that the question at the end is "who/what am I?", but "can you guess the riddle?", to which the answer is 'No.'

The answer could just as easily be "Yes". Everyone can guess the riddle. The question isn't "Can you guess the right answer to the riddle?"
