alternative answer for 1. - curry. It cools down in temperature but make your mouth hotter the more of it you eat


but only if it's HOT curry! oh, who am I kidding, all curry is hot... But even if you were eating it cold, it would still be "hot" (spicy), so I guess it works, but not at a premium level. And the spiciness isn't effected by temperature, leaving your answer hopeless! haha! you can tell I'm a curry expert.

  • A furnace.
  • A blackboard.
  • A towel.
  • As much wood as a woodchuck could chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood.
  • My age, my taxes and the chances that Hollywood will ruin yet another childhood memory by turning an old 70's TV series into a crappy movie.
  • None - you only need money to be rich if you are silly enough to think that money makes you rich.
  • Time to fix your clock.
  • I do not know the name of the shape, but if you have each match extend from each apex of a tetrahedron toward a central point and crazy-glue them together at the central point you will have the shape - I've seen kid's jacks shaped like this, and caltrops as well.


7. lol time to fix your clock
nice one

All the answers were already given in the first 3 pages of posts, and confirmed by savagegamer90... since no one bothers to read them, I've collected them for you.

Spoiler for 1.what gets hotter as it gets colder?


Spoiler for 2.what is white when it's dirty turns black as you clean it?


Spoiler for 3.what gets wetter as it dries?<br />


Spoiler for 4.how much wood could a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood?


Spoiler for 5.what gets bigger and never smaller?


Spoiler for 6.how much money do you need to be rich?<br />


Spoiler for 7.what time is it when your clock is only right once a day?<br />


Spoiler for 8.what shape that can, be made from four matches, face any direction , be flipped any way and will stay right side up?<br />


In other words, I guess it's time to close this topic...

1. Water. When being frozen at sea level, between the temperatures of +3.98°c and 0°c, something magical happens... At +3.98°c, water is at it's most dense (natrually), and so freezes into a solid. Between +3.98°c and 0°c, water becomes less dense, hence thawing and appearing "warmer", whilst actually getting colder, until at 0c, it freezes again.

Didn't any of you know this? How do you think your fish survive in winter when your pond freezes over? The top is frozen, as it is around 3.98°c, but the water underneath is between +3.98°c and 0°c.


No, in fact I did not know this.

Interesting theory. Water freezes at 0o C, not in 3.98o C. At near 4o C water becomes dense. As the temperature becomes cooler, density falls and when it comes to 0, ice is formed. This is the Basic law of thermal physics. That is why ice floats over water. fish survives as ice is floating over water and warmer water is beneath ice. NOT like your theory


Thanks for correcting the above, but I think this is missing the basic point. Solid water (ice) is less dense than liquid water (water), regardless of the temperature of the liquid water.
