I have 3 riddles for you that I got from here.

Riddle 1: I am larger when cold and shrink when warm. You can see me, but you cannot touch me.

Riddle 2: When people need me, they throw me away. when I’m not needed they take me back.

Riddle 3: The more you give me, the richer you get. When you rob me, only you get poorer.

• I assume these riddles have seperate answers? Commented Nov 13, 2014 at 14:51
• good point! yes :) they have separate answers. Commented Nov 13, 2014 at 14:53
• they should, then, have been 3 separate questions. Commented Nov 14, 2014 at 0:47
• sorry, I'm new in town. And yes, you are right. I put them together, because they are short, but now I know.. and will give my best in the future to separate the questions properly. Commented Nov 14, 2014 at 6:53
• It's ok really :) just so you know. welcome aboard Commented Nov 14, 2014 at 7:40

Since the answers are scattered (by the way, you should have asked 3 separate questions):

Night

Anchor

3

Piggy bank

I do this in the interest of the site being the QnA it is designed to be.

• Yes, you're right. I will keep that in mind for future questions. Commented Nov 14, 2014 at 6:45
• You might consider adding explanations. Like, how does the first one meet the description " I am larger when cold and shrink when warm"??? Commented Feb 25, 2016 at 2:23
• @RedCaio It has to do with air Commented Feb 25, 2016 at 8:59
• the air expanding/shrinking? lol. wouldn't it have more to do with the days being longer in the winter? Commented Feb 25, 2016 at 9:39
• @RedCaio Actually, yes. You are right. Apologies for my incorrect response Commented Feb 26, 2016 at 0:13

Number 1

The empty space in a thermometer

Number 2

An Anchor

Number 3

My Savings Account

• Oh, you are a creative person :) Commented Nov 14, 2014 at 6:46
• #2 & #3 are right. #1 made my day, I haven't thought of it this way :) Commented Nov 14, 2014 at 6:48

An anchor

• yes. nailed it. Commented Nov 13, 2014 at 20:58

#1 is tougher. It could be

a star. It heats up when contracting then stabilises, then cools and expands into a Red Giant. Feels a bit forced, though.

#2 is

A boomerang

#3 is

A piggy bank

• #3 you got it right! Commented Nov 13, 2014 at 15:17
• #2 What I had in mind was something else. But your answer is also right and fits in. Commented Nov 13, 2014 at 15:19
• @zlobi.wan.kenobi updated with a (possibly too forced) answer for #1

Riddle 1:

Gas

Riddle 2:

Breath

Riddle 3:

Bank

• Your answer of riddle 3 is right. Your answer of riddle 1 could have been right, when the first part of the riddle was: "I am larger whan warm and shrink when cold." Commented Nov 13, 2014 at 15:26
• Whoopsy! Read viceversa XD Commented Nov 13, 2014 at 20:43

#1 (wrong)

Sun, that is closer to Earth in winter and further in summer (in boreal hemisphere)

1

night, that is longer when climate is cold, and shorter otherwise

2

a ball, when you need it you kick it away, when you finish to play you take it home

• Technically your answer to #1 is never "cold", and there's no qualifying words to imply that it's larger when something else (ie. the Earth's climate) is cold

• #1 is very very very close. At least the answer somehow depends on your answer Commented Nov 13, 2014 at 15:13
• I made another try for #1. what about number 2? Commented Nov 13, 2014 at 15:15
• #2 might be.. might be.. it does not fit perfectly, but it is a good guess. Commented Nov 13, 2014 at 15:47
