I don't think we've done this one yet ..

What is weightless , but when added to a barrel full of liquid , will empty it ?

Edit: maybe this one is too easy . It stumped the class ... back in the day .
Since I can't think of another riddle at the moment I might as well leave it here .

Edit edit : okay maybe the riddle went like this instead of what I put up a moment ago .

Edit edit edit : nah ... still looks too easy , oh well .

Edit blah blah ... Then again , it looks easy to me coz I know the answer ... The rest of yous that know this one please raise your hand and recuse yourself , fank ye ye welkum .
If someone knows a more accurate rendition of this riddle , please share .

A vacuum?
"How is it that hardly any major religion has looked at science and concluded, 'This is better than we thought! The Universe is much bigger than our prophets said, grander, more subtle, more elegant. God must be even greater than we dreamed'? Instead they say, 'No, no, no! My god is a little god, and I want him to stay that way.'" - Carl Sagan

"To doubt everything or to believe everything are two equally convenient solutions; both dispense with the necessity of reflection." - Henri Poincaré

Is a hole weightless? A hole in a barrel would contain either the weight of the liquid pouring out of it, or the weight of the air that fills it. If you think of a hole as an absence of wood in the barrel, does that mean that a hole actually has negative weight?

Light/heat? Certainly should work if the barrel is full of water, evaporation and all that. I don't know if it would apply to all liquids, but theoretically it should, if you add enough heat to the liquid in the barrel, whatever the liquid is will turn into gas and leave the barrel.

Spam? :confused:

English isn't much of a language for swearing. When I studied Ancient Greek I was delighted to discover a single word - Rhaphanidosthai - which translates roughly as "Be thou thrust up the fundament with a radish for adultery."
