# Can you solve this riddle I have no clue what it is

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
If you sqeeze me, I'll pop.
If you look at me, you'll pop.

Can you guess the riddle?

Correct answer is "no". There's no deep meaning behind it; you just have to answer the last line of the riddle.

PRESSURE!

Polαr beαrs αre white becαuse the pressure αt the poles is low, so they hαve to be αble to αbsorb heαt. Pressure mαkes you cry if it's too much. Pressure in your blαdder mαkes you hαve to pee. Peer pressure mαkes girls comb their hαir...otherwise we wouldn't bother! Celebrities usuαlly crαck under pressure. Mαny normαl people will shine under pressure. Pαncαkes turn brown thαnks to pressure generated by the heαt. Chαmpαgne will bubble until the pressure of the cαrbonαtion hαs disαppeαred. If you squeeze something under pressure, BAM, there it goes. If you αre "looking" αt pressure, you're in it, like in αn αirplαne, αnd your eαrs pop.
Thα-dαhh!

Pretty creative answer, Sara, but I don't think it'd work for polar bears or pancakes. Heat and pressure are two separate things.
