1)What is it that you can keep after giving it to someone else?
2)What is round as a dishpan, deep as a tub, and still the oceans couldn't fill it up?
3)Scarcely was the father in this world when the son could be found sitting on the roof.
4)What goes up the chimney down, but can't go down the chimney up?
5)When one does not know what it is, then it is something; but when one knows what it is, then it is nothing.

My mind is a sieve with the holes getting bigger every day.

1) your word
2)the earth!!
3)smoke
4)an umberella
5)a secret.

Every one keeps saying that number three is fire/smoke, but that parallel seems force-fit. How can fire be represented by "father" and how can smoke be like "son," furthermore, if the "father" (fire) is only in the world (not in a house), how can the son (smoke) be on a roof?

I have to agree with sandstorm. I have not seen an answer yet to explain question #3.

Aaron Burr - do you agree that it is fire/smoke?

1) knowledge
2) a sieve
3) ??? no idea - I'm not a fan of the fire/smoke answer, but I guess that's it. Why can't fire be the mother? :D
4) umbrella
5) a question or a riddle (but they are still something when you know the answer)

3. I thought of the "scarcely" part more like "hardly" or "barely" instead of "newly" as it seems the fire/smoke crowd interpreted. The first thing that came to my mind was an astronaut, but I guess I'm too literal.
