Riddle?

Hi IQfy

I am having difficulty completing a riddle from a group that I am in and request assistance from greater minds.

"In the storm, her umbrella was disabled." The only hint they have given me is instructions on how to re-magnetize a compass.

I don't think it is a very good riddle. If you cannot think of an answer, please provide another riddle as I'd like to read better ones.t

    >What goes up when the rain comes down?

    No idea on the riddle you provided, to remagnetize a compass you need another magnet and then you have to realign the needle and drag the magnet across it.

        Hehehe yeah, I have heard probably close to a hundred or so riddles about umbrellas but I have not heard the one you have provided, or if I have then I do not remember hearing it. I am inclined to agree it is not much of a riddle, I suppose the implication is that the wind in the storm blew the spring loaded arms and broke it. I am not aware of a process for fixing an umbrella that is akin to remagnetizing a compass. It could possess a much more highly contextuallized meaning where some technical process is titled umbrella and the riddle is really oriented to this process. It could be a play on the saying 'bring the storm, I have my umbrella' which is usually in reference to fortitude, if your fortitude is broken then you may need to realign or re-center to regain it. Outside of these types of scenarios I have no further thought on the riddle unfortunately.

          Interesting take, thank you for your well thought out post. There is such little information in the text that, as anon put it, it pretty much isnt a riddle. There are only very vague threads you have to grasp at to even find a clue.

          Sorry, not clicking it. If you want to post screenshots I'll help.

          I understand, thank you anyhow anon.

        My 's' key has a crumb of something under it which causes a misfire at times, was suppose to be 'morons' plural.

        No. I am at my wits end with this tedious riddle and I was hoping that IQfy could help me.

        Do you have any interesting riddles?

        I gave you a hint. You are going to cry when you figure it out, it really is not that difficult and you are probably over thinking it.

          Haha you are right, i am definitely overthinking it.

          So taking your hint of solar storm, the umbrella could be considered as the magnetosphere.

        but what is the solution supposed to be? do you have to figure out why is she in the storm or what?

          That is way too big of a hint, essentially giving away the answer.

          Is it a play on words?

          Not really, fairly standard riddling, exploits the tendency of people to reach a faulty conclusion regarding meaning based on context. Misdirection with an allusion toward pun which is part of the misdirection. Fairly well done riddle.

    The answer is Venus. You are solving for ‘her’. The umbrella that protects from solar storms is a planet’s magnetic field, hence the compass/magnet clue. The only planets without magnetic fields are Mars and Venus. Mars is named after the Roman God of war (male) and Venus, the Goddess of Love (female). Venus is the answer.

      This sounds correct, it would make sense to identify 'her' in the answer than the why.

        This seems to be a decent collection of ancient greek riddles.
