Mr Mottershead's Riddles and Challenges!

DON’T CHEAT by using the internet, get your family involved and see if you can work out the answers.

What is greater than God,
more evil than the devil,
the poor have it,
the rich need it,

Who makes it, has no need of it.
Who buys it, has no use for it.
Who uses it can neither see nor feel it.
What is it?

What can travel around the world while staying in a corner?

During which month do people sleep the least?

What is made of water but if you put it into water it will die?

I’m tall when I'm young and I'm short when I'm old. What am I?

What has hands but can not clap?

You can drop me from the tallest building and I'll be fine, but if you drop me in water I die. What am I?
