Here is the poem Just found it

The time has come,
winter is here
and those yellow bears disappear.
(I turn polar bears white)

The time has past
as man looks back with a sigh
and a tear in his eye.
(I will make you cry)

As time is held
boys cross their legs
but of course the toilet begs
(I make guys have to pee)

As time marches on
Girls loose their blush
and swap a comb for their brush
(and girls comb their hair)

As time passes
For those held high
their end is nigh
(I make celebrities look stupid)

As time catches up
Everyone is equal
when we get to the final sequel
(and normal people look like celebrities)

As time turns
Without it we have flour and water
With it we have breakfast for my daughter
(I turn pancakes brown)

As time revolves
How does one turn water and wine
into something so fine
(and make your champagne bubble)

As time runs out
The more in a minute you try and squeeze
the less you can do with ease.
(If you squeeze me, I'll pop)

As time ticks
All the time that has past
man cannot comprehend something so vast.
(If you look at me, you'll pop)

the answer is pressure because


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, like in an airplane, and your ears pop

Champagne actually bubbles due to contact with glass.



An initial burst of effervescence occurs when the Champagne contacts the dry glass on pouring. These bubbles form on imperfections in the glass that facilitate nucleation or, to a lesser extent, on cellulose fibres left over from the wiping/drying process as shown by Gérard Liger-Belair, Richard Marchal, and Philippe Jeandel with a high-speed video camera. However, after the initial rush, these naturally occurring imperfections are typically too small to consistently act as nucleation points as the surface tension of the liquid smoothes out these minute irregularities. The nucleation sites that act as a source for the ongoing effervescence are not natural imperfections in the glass, but actually occur where the glass has been etched by the manufacturer or the customer. This etching is typically done with acid, a laser, or a glass etching tool from a craft shop to provide nucleation sites for continuous bubble formation (note that not all glasses are etched in this way). In 1662, this method was developed by the British, as records from the Royal Society show.

Polar bears are white for camoflarge and the fur of the polar bear protects it from the harmful ultraviolet radiations that are more pronounced in the Polar Regions.




In actual fact, polar bears have transparent fur over black skin. Reflection of the sunlight from the densely packed transparent hairs makes polar bears seem to be white. The bears' black skin absorbs heat from the sun.

Why do I have the feeling that no one could have gotten your riddles correct? The answer to number 4 is and always will be the car was a convertible.

The stranger was a baby? How is a mans child a stranger to him? Let me guess, it wasn't his child.
