Misspelling "squeeze" is a major red herring. And also the sign of kind of a poorly constructed (or replicated) riddle.

Also, the version of the riddle posted above is incomplete. If you want to try to think of the answer, I suggest finding the complete version.

Its Pressure. for the people that say water that dont make any sense and neither does no it has to be 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.

The question is this:

"Can you guess the riddle?"

Its not,.. What am I? or.. What do I do? .. like one of those types of riddles..

So you can either answer yes, no, or maybe..

Litle kid may say, No teach, I can't guess the riddle..

Harvard student may come up with elaborate answers to the wrong question, thus not answering the question.

Question: Can you guess the riddle?
College Student: Water.

Hmmm.. Water doesn't really answer the question now does it? Go sit in the corner
