I've existed before yet cannot exist without you
I cannot be measured, but you have more then once today
Humanity hates me almost as much as they love me
I never make a sound, yet my wake is told with great clamor

What am I?

I have to come up with another first, and that's the only milkshake I had besides. :P

You'll have to get another one for me to steal before I can give it to you as a reward anyway ._.

We are immeasurably small but often all you can see
We move in mass, we drop as one in glass
We regularly fly and are found the world over
Where you to hold us we'd fall away

What are we?

Two brothers we are,
great burdens we bear,
all day we are bitterly pressed.
Yet this I will say;
we are full all the day,
and empty when we go to rest.

No one has gotten this one yet, no guesses?

I'm guessing my answer  to Drow Denizen's was right as he didn't say it was wrong and he was online o.o;

How about two pillars holding up a bridge?

*edit* oops Kaizen probably got it, I didn't see his answer there between the other two.

You are a very confusing riddle! The only thing that I could think of is a jar lid, but that doesn't fit two fo the lines...

nopes not a jar lid, but a pretty shrewd guess just the same  :-)

I added 'be' to the end of the first line to make it a little more clear. Not sure it it helps a lot or not, but it is more accredit

I have thought about this off and on for a day now and I can only come up with...

hydraulics

I don't think it's right though... I'll probably slap myself when I learn how obvious the real answer is.


Good riddle.
