    One day a father of three sons said to them: "i am going to die. I cannot split my fortune so the person who can fill this room will get it all". He gave them some coins and of they went.

    One of the sons brought some straw that only filled a corner of the room.

    The second brought some feathers that filled two corners.

    The third son brought two items that filled the whole of the room.

    What were the two items? πŸ™„

    I'm guessing he brought 'light' so probably a match and a matchbox

    A match and something to stike it on - he sets the straw and feathers on fire and fills the room with smoke.

    I would have handed the coins back and said "But it's already full"

    I've heard that if a frozen can of shaving cream is cut open and left somewhere, it will expand enormously as it thaws, but I'm not sure I believe this.

    It expands to a decent size (say 4 times the can) but nothing spectacular.

    well. I hear manure is free many places, so you could keep filling and filling that room without ever running out of money.
