As time ticks All the time that has past man cannot comprehand something so vast.
  • the answer is.... "pressure" get it? Polar bears are white because the pressure at the poles is low, so they have to be able to absorb heat. Pressure makes you cry if it's too much. Pressure in your bladder makes you have to pee. Peer pressure makes girls comb their hair. Celebrities usually crack under pressure. Many normal people will shine under pressure. Pancakes turn brown thanks to pressure generated by the heat. Champagne will bubble until the pressure of the carbonation has disappeared. If you squeeze something under pressure, BAM, there it goes. If you are "looking" at pressure, you're in it. for example-> in an airplane your ears pop under pressure
  • The answer is "yes". If you look only at the last line, which is supposed to be "Can you guess this riddle?", then you'll have come up with the fact that the riddle doesn't matter, and the whole thing is just a yes or no question. The answer is yes because you can GUESS all you want, although you will never find the answer to the "riddle," because there isn't one, and just GUESSING doesn't mean that your answer is right, so the answer is yes. If the final line was "What am I?", then, I'd have to say that the answer is pressure.
  • Here's the whole riddle: " 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?" 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.
  • I think that the answer is "no I cant" because it asked the simple question can you solve the riddle. the whole riddle does not make sense so there lies the answer no i cant. people try to over analize the riddle and come up with answer by thinking to hard. and they said that kiddergartens can get the answer but harvard students could not. then i read the riddle to my little sister and she said "no i cant" but i knows others will disagree.
  • Its actually pretty easy and no its not pressure, its a camera. It wasn't that hard was it?
  • Now, I found a poem that seems to have the answer: TIME. But, I can't seem to find an author for it so I can't be sure if it is legitimate. The time has come, winter is here and those yellow bears disappear. 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 sequel 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 comprehend something so vast.
  • No it can't really b a camera because a camera doesn't make champaigne pop nor does it make pancakes turn brown. The answer is "no" you see because Harvard students and adults always look 4 a solution 2 solve stuff. While younger ppl always or usually answer what they hear like in the last line of the riddle when they say "can you guess this riddle?", now of course they're gonna say no because they don't know the one answer that can fit into all of the questions. Theres not just 1 thing that can make all that possible......... Atleast i don't think there is...........
  • i think that this has the most simplest answer but no one can think of it because we are thinking way outside the box. we have to think samll like a kindergartner who hasn'r got the life skills to think that it "pressure" they dont even know what peer pressure is cuz their too busy playing legos or something.(no offense nat-nat pun. pride) i think it's something like AGE.
  • chuck norris
  • Has anyone ever thought the answer could be "Your Brain"?
  • I'm in disagreement with the person who made this question up. Based on the end of it: "Can you guess the riddle?" and "97% of harvard graduates got this question wrong, 87% of kindergarteners got it right", the answer would be "no" because most kindergarten students would give some variation of that answer. However, the statistics are biased on the assumption that the asker knew the answer to his/her own question. Technically, you can guess whatever you like. Doesn't mean your guess is correct, it just means you guessed. Also, what if your guess was "No"? Then, even assuming the answer is "No", by guessing it (correctly), you'd prove the answer to be wrong. Therefore, I can only conclude that the one possible answer is "Yes", and that the statistics are meaningless - Just as meaningless as the title of the riddle.
  • life interesting!
  • ummmmmmmm traits?
  • Oh no. This is that riddle that all the kindergarteners knew, but grown adults didn't. Right? Ugh... I don't know. Water.
  • preasure
  • the answer is air, air covers a polar bear in snow, riding a bike for example against the wind makes your eyes water (cry). guys need a wee in the wind, and girls comb their hair when its windy to prevent knots. celebrities dont like the wind, but normal people use wind machines to make them look good. the air turns pancakes brown, just like air turns bread stale. air is obviously in champage bubbles
  • In my mind there are two valid answers. If you answer the question that is actually asked: 'Can you guess the riddle?' - and you do not read anything further into that question - the response would be 'yes'. You're not being asked to provide an answer to the riddle, you're being asked if you can guess the riddle; therefore, the riddle itself is the answer, albeit you do not have to guess, as it is there in front of you. This has such a fundamental level of logic that perhaps a child in kindergarten would indeed come to this conclusion ... perhaps? The second answer, and the one that makes the most sense to me, is 'no'. Let's face it, very few Harvard students would admit to not being able to work out the answer, and, therefore, would continue believing that it can be figured out if given enough time. In contrast, a child would be more than happy to admit they are unable to provide an answer. The reason this would take the majority of them six minutes or less also makes sense; after all, how many children would waste their time trying to work out a riddle when there is mud to be played in and imaginary worlds to discover?
  • It's PRESSURE. Polar bears are white because the pressure at the poles is low, so they have to be able to absorb heat. Pressure makes you cry if it's too much. Pressure in your bladder makes you have to pee. Peer pressure makes girls comb their hair...Otherwise we wouldn't bother! Celebrities usually crack under pressure. Many normal people will shine under pressure. Pancakes turn brown thanks to pressure generated by the heat. Champagne will bubble until the pressure of the carbonation has disappeared. If you squeeze something under pressure, LikeBamm, there it goes. If you are "looking" at pressure, you're in it, like in an airplane, and your ears pop. [[[I like the 'time' answer alot better though...]]
  • If 97% of Harvard graduates couldn't figure this riddle out then wouldn't their default answer have been No, so when you think about it if No was the answer then 97% of Harvard graduates got it right. The saga continues!! By the way blueyedlullaby your hot but man you ask a lot of questions, guess that's the compromise huh. Peace out! Mark Manchester, UK
  • Is it Heat?
  • I Googled it and some people say its "pressure" and some say its "time". I think I'd rather go with "time".
  • Time of the Season, would be my first guess. For most everything changes somewhat during the seasons.
  • Richard Simmons.
  • Actually, for those of you replying "No", I don't think it's right. The fact is that the answer should be "nothing", not "no I cannot answer the riddle" because, in fact, you do know the answer and the answer is "nothing", so the reply should be "Yes". CLEAR?
  • the sun
  • It's "crayon".
  • The answer in No. First off tho a polar bear hair ain't a white, their skin is black to absorb heat and their hair is clear is absorb light, this gives it a white or yellow hue. :)
  • errrmmmm
  • The answer can't be no!? A. a riddle can't have an answer of just no (then it wouldnt be the hardest riddle it would be the shittest) B. If 97% of Harvard students couldn't figure it out - then ultimately they got it right because no they couldnt figure it out, just like the kindergardens!?!? Its a contradiction in what its saying. Pressure would be a more suitable answer. But i think the real answer should be time. i turn polar bears white - time as in evolution And I will make you cry. - people will die through out time I make guys have to pee - no one can hold their pee And girls comb their hair. - hair grows through time I make celebrities look stupid - they always start out great then go crazy through out their careers And normal people look like celebrities. - when ur in ur teens and 20s some people make their image similar to celebrities I turn pancakes brown - if left on the hot plate long enough And make your champane bubble. - over time champangne will bubble If you sqeeze me, I'll pop. - if you squeeze the time continueum it will pop and a black hole or a worm hole will be created If you look at me, you'll pop. - if you were to look at what ever dimension time is in ( i dont know i think its the 4th or 7th) you would literally pop as ur streteched and construed. Using all the information given, i would say the answer is God, i dont beleive in God but some people do and maybe the person who wrote it does. Its also an answer that kindergardens would be able to supply and Harvard students would see beyond.
  • The answer is fresh squirting semen.... Duhhhhhh
  • The answer is no because it is the all important question at the end which underlines the entire riddle. After asking several young kids they answered not "pressure" (many of which didn't even know what that meant but "no". When i asked them why they had answered it the said "because it doesn't make sense" and "i don't understand it". Another thing is where it asks can you GUESS the answer, which would result in a no because many people spend much time in an in depth answer which would not be a guess. Dr G.E.A.Peters
  • Why can't the answer by Viagra. Come on guys, this is a simple riddle. Little kids haven't developed their brains to full capacity yet, so they can't think logically, they just go with concrete answers. They would simply say, "Yes" or "No" it's not that difficult. If the line: "Can you guess the riddle?" wasn't in there, then they were expecting you to answer the question, "What am I?"
  • The answer is "time." There is actually a poem called "Time" and it explains the answer.... Time The time has come, winter is here and those yellow bears disappear. 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 sequel As time turns Without it we have flour and water With it we have breakfast for my daughter As time revolves 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 comprehend something so vast
  • I very much doubt that 84% of kindergarten students guessed 'pressure'. Find me a kindergarten student that knows about the pressure in the poles, understands the concept of peer pressure and the science behind the 'pressure' of the heat turning pancakes brown...oh and lets no forget 'looking' at something that isnt there so therefore having to figure out that 'looking'is really interpeted as 'facing a situation'...find me that 6 year old and I take my hat off to them....they WILL be going to harvard! (does that mean in their later life they wont understand the riddle?)
  • I'd say the answer was 'no'. I say this only because the key to a good riddle is to throw in a whole lot of stuff that is misleading. in finding a solution, you must look for the 'trick'. Don't over analyse. The question at the end is 'can you guess this riddle?' maybe if the question was 'can you answer this riddle?' ..then it would actually have an answer (just a thought)
  • Pressure. This has been asked dozens of times.
  • Pressure
  • The answer is "No." Simply answer the question and you have solved the riddle. Any number of things can be applied to each scenario mentioned in the riddle, but not one thing fits every scenario easily. And don't forget that the question is also a part of the riddle.

  • 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?
  • People!!!! read ALL the answers before you's just write the same thing over and over again!!! Do your research!!! Polar bears have a fur that is actually translucent and that appears white due to their surroundings, also HIGH pressure is at the poles, not low so that's a load of rubbish. 'Peer pressure makes girls comb their hair' errr.... no it does not! what a lot of crap!!! U cannot 'look at' or 'see' pressure and not all celebs crack under pressure and not all non-celebs shine under pressure!!! stop writing the same things... and at that the same wrong things!!! What about this one, I got it in an email but I really can't work it out!! I cause reflections but does not shine, I am made of wood but was never living, I have a flame like a fire but cannot burn, I disappear as soon as I've been seen, I ring like a bell but am uaually silent, I am is strong like a metal but shatter on impact. Please help!
  • i think that pressure sounds right. but if 85% of kindy kids got it right in what was it um.. 6 minutes or less then the answer has to be no. i think both these answers r correct.
  • Weird how this question turned up again. It's old. i don't think kindergardeners guessed "pressure"
  • cold air
  • i thought air or wind
  • I dont think kindergartens would answer 'time' or 'pressure' (which i think are logical answers) to this riddle. I think the most realistic answer from a Kindy student would be 'No'. what do you guys think?
  • The answer is anything.
  • The trick here is that this isn't even a riddle. There are several statements, then it asks "Can you guess the riddle?" The goal is to figure out what the riddle would be. In the case of all these statements the riddle is "What am I?" wether that riddle has an aswer is irrelevant. In the end the answer to "Can you guess the riddle?" is: Yes, I can guess the riddle.
  • Get that from facebook? Thought so...
  • Television
  • The answer is both pressure and time "the pressure of time" togther that answer works for every possible aspect of this riddel
  • The answer is Time. There is a riddle about it.
  • What the hell is the real answer?
  • The Answer Is WORDS! If there were no words how could you describe the color of the bear? you could turn it into any color with words. Words that offend a person can cause you to cry if the words hurt deep enough saying water or describing a sound that is like a waterfall can cause a guy to ***. If you say a girl has bad hair they would want or could if they had a brush comb it to make it better. Words that ruin celebrities lifes can make them look stupid describing certain talents one normal person has that a celebrity doesn't makes them better in someway and can make them look like a celebrity like the polar bear the word describes what color the pancake is words describe what the champane is doing like carbonization squeeze me is a tricky one but I believe that if you squeeze "me" as in "words in the poem" and get the answer out of what is written "I'll Pop" meaning you have achieved the answer from the riddle and it is popped as in the answer has been cracked and revealed. The answer metaphorically popped out of the riddle in words. If you look at the words in this poem you like a lot of people have said will pop and scream, holler, and lose your sanity out of how easy the answer is and how hard logically it was to solve this riddle. Because its hard to solve logically thats why most harvard students couldn't come up with it. However kindergardeners could because of their low vocabulary most would just said "words" because you can describe the riddle using words.
  • i dont know
  • dont know
  • There are some truly moronic people trying to offer an 'answer' to this riddle, and I'm struggling to tell if they're playing up to the entire thing or just not that bright. The entire thing is based on a poem by Neil Gaiman. The reason it's so hard to answer for anyone OTHER than kindergarteners is because no-one else is likely to have read the poem - as such, the 'riddle' makes next to no sense. The answer is 'time' in so much as the poem it is based on is called 'time'.
  • I'm struggling to tell if the people offering answers are simply messing around, or just not that bright. The entire thing is based on a poem by Neil Gaiman. The reason it's so hard to answer for anyone OTHER than kindergarteners is because no-one else is likely to have read the poem - as such, the 'riddle' makes next to no sense. Looking at it having not read the poem the answer has to be 'yes', as you're simply being asked to identify the riddle, but the question you're answering has little context. The 'real' answer is 'time' in so much as the poem it is based on is called 'time'.
  • The answer they are looking for is 'no'. As has been said already. We could answer 'time' but I could also answer 'life', existence or soe other all encompassing word which doesn't explain why the Kids could get it and the Harvard folk couldn't. It's more a smarmy trick riddle where intellectuals start to figure out what could answer the above while the kids just look at the final part...and because it is difficult they answer 'no'. However (because I am a smart ass) even though 'No' is the answer the people who made the riddle want. They actually are WRONG! Because the question is.... Can you GUESS the riddle? Well if you want to get semantic the answer is 'Yes'. Of course you can GUESS the riddle. We can guess anything. I can guess that you ate pancakes for breakfast this morning. I don't have to be correct. So I prefer the answer: 'Yes' Yes I can guess the riddle. I'd like to guess 'snow' in all it's various meanings. I may not be correct but yes I can guess.
  • the answer is TIME!!! there is a poem about it also! THE ANSWER IS TIME!
  • my answer is....I hope someone can give me the answer because I have made everyone around me nuts trying to solve it
  • oh btw I would like anyone that has the answer "time" to explain every line so it matches (having a hard time being a believer of time) besides the fact that polar bears are actually yellow until the light hits them......
  • OMG! how dumb can some people be. This is the most obvious riddle on the planet. The reason why it says 97% of Harvard graduates can not figure this riddle out, is because they try to look to much into it and eventually give up. But 84% of kindergarten students were able to figure this out in 6 minutes or less because you ask them a question at the end that they will answer with "NO" ....now look back and think a minute.... "I turn polar bears white"...no, I don't... "I will make you cry"...not likely... "I make guys have to pee"...no I don't... "And girls comb their hair"...again, no I don't.... "I make celebrities look stupid"...nope (many of them do it themselves!)... "And normal people look like celebrities"...no I don't (but a little photoshop might)... "I turn pancakes brown"...no, the heat of the griddle does.... "and make your champagne bubble"...no I don't.... "If you sqeeze me, I'll pop"...nope... "If you look at me, you'll pop"....again, no (but that might be funny if it did!)... "Can you guess the riddle?"....again, a kindergarten student would likely answer "NO" imeadiatly after hearing the entire thing.
  • The answer is pressure. I know because I have it in a pretty old book; "Even More Old Lateral Thinking Puzzles". The whole statistical part, as well as the alterations to the wording, are because of people who were to stupid to answer it right. They wanted to feel special so they changed the answer and asked if you could guess it. "I turn polar bears white And I will make you cry. I make boys have to pee And girls comb their hair. I make celebrities look stupid And normal people seem like celebrities. I turn pancakes brown And make champagne bubble. If you sqeeze me, I'll pop. If you look at me, you'll pop. Who am I?" The answers in the book: "Pressure: Also accept: Force, Gravity" Thank you and goodnight.
  • the answer is "time" 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 TIMEis 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.
  • I have stumbled across the original answer at techfixer[dot]co[dot]uk, but it has been changed since, because the anwser was vrey strange.
  • The answer is "NO" the last line of the riddle is "Can you guess the riddle?" The answer from the kindergarten students was no so of course they would be right. But in Harvard, they think that every question has an answer thus they were set up for failure. Think outside the box. Please correct me if I am wrong
  • hasnt it got something to do with the four elements??
  • Can I guess the riddle? Of course I can. The answer is 'the riddle'. It's not asking for an answer to anything except for you to do what the last line asks. It's a riddle, not physics.
  • ha this is the easiest riddle ever; i got it in a second the answer is: the world's hardest riddle this is the answer because they are asking what is the riddle and the riddle is called the world's hardest riddle
  • I honestly think its a poor riddle if any of the above answers are the solution to it. If the answer requires some sort of convoluted reasoning to make sense of the answer then it is a poor riddle. A good riddle would be difficult to answer but when the answer is found, one should be able to slap thier head and say.."Bloody hell, of course! How come I never though of that?" Either we have a clever riddle or a piece of smarmy crap trying to pass itself off as a clever riddle.
  • well this one got me thinking i think that the best answer here has gotta be time it just seems that it is based on the poem with the title Time....really "no" had me thinking because i asked my son who is 6 and he said "no" but i mean really ask a kindergarden student anything that sounds at all difficult and you will get the same answer. so really both are correct no for those without the knowledge to answer the riddle and time for the rest of us
  • How can it be pressure and how could kindergarton kids work that out??? stupid answer.
  • NO... the answer is no!
  • 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? Answer is the answer to this riddle is NO or NO I CAN'T.
  • The simple question is: Can you guess the riddle: The answer is: No
