1.what gets hotter as it gets colder?

Colour:
As colour gets warmer (towards red) the colour templerature in Kelvin gets cooler.
Conversely, as colour gets cooler (toward blue) the colour temperature in Kelvin gets warmer.

That would be the point of the riddle.
It would be to obvious to say "what gets hotter as it cools the air?"


How about "What gets hotter as it cools?"

I love your answer to 5.


However there are infinite answers to this question:
5. The number of dead people during the course of human history.
5. The number of posts on this forum
5. The number of patents or inventions
5. Actually, any number of anthing!!

5.My IQ level :P (At least I hope)

And my favorite:
5. The number of answers to this question!!

The best answer that I could come up with for #1 is a radiator or something of that nature. As it gets colder, ("it" referring to the ambient temperature of whatever geographical location you happen to be in) our radiator gets hotter.

The number of digits in Pi is a great answer for #5 although Pi itself is not, as it has a fixed value.

Another good answer for #5 would be the size of the universe. It's ever-expanding, but will eventually contract which doesn't concern us because we probably won't be around for it.

1. Your body. When you lose body heat your body is boiling hot from fever but you are cooling because you are loosing heat.

7. what time is it when your clock is only right once a day?

Answer: 3:15.

When the hour and minute arrows on the clock both point to the right side, it shows as 3:15.
