This has been dubbed one of the hardest riddles in the world. 97% of Harvard graduates can not figure this riddle out, but 84% of kindergarten students were able to figure this out in 6 minutes or less. Can you guess the correct answer?

NO GOOGLE!

I turn polar bears white

and I will make you cry.

I make guys have to pee

and girls comb their hair.

I make celebrities look stupid

and normal people look like celebrities.

I turn pancakes brown

and make your champane bubble.

If you sqeeze me, I'll pop.

If you look at me, you'll pop.

Can you guess the riddle?

Don't tell me it's a trick riddle or something?

Wrong the answer is time: The riddle was based on this poem

The time has come,
winter is here
and those yellow bears disapear.

The time has past
as man looks back with a sigh
and a tear in his eye.

As time is held
boys cross their legs
but of course the toilet begs

As time marches on
Girls loose their blush
and swap a comb for their brush

As time passes
For those held high
their end is nigh

As time catches up
Everyone is equal
when we get to the final sequal

As time turns
Without it we have flour and water
With it we have breakfast for my daughter

As time revolves
How does one turn water and wine
into something so fine

As time runs out
The more in a minute you try and squeeze
the less you can do with ease.

As time ticks
All the time that has past
man cannot comprehand something so vast.

It's time.
I didn't have to google(today) I did a google about time a few days ago and found that poem. I saved the poem in word and planned to use it in a post. When I saw the riddle I realised the riddle was a play on the words in the poem.

The answer is simply "no".
That's why kindergarteners can answer it...
Look here: http://teensetc.com/0f/0d/bi/index.shtml...

Although the riddle originally was based on a poem about time, there were errors in it that make it impossible to be answered with "time".

The last part of the riddle, "If you squeeze me, I'll pop.
If you look at me, you'll pop." is actually from an old riddle which had the answer "bubble". (if you squeeze it it will pop, if you look at it you see your reflection and you pop.)

And the answer "pressure" came from a kid or someone who knew nothing at all about why it is cold at the north pole or why polar bears appear white.

If you try to squesse things into a second you can't you over exceeded the capacity of the second it metaphorically popped. Your, mind can not hold all of the concepts of of what and where you are/were and you pop from the overload.

Polar bears actually do turn a dingy yellow during the year and then after they spend a short hibernation they grow new bright white fur over a short period of time.

LOL my error, but for the wrong reason. The actual riddle is not the description. the only riddle is:

Can you guess the riddle?

That is the riddle. Not the rest of it. so the answer is NO. Because we don't even know what the riddle is.
