Winnie-the-Pooh - A.A. Milne

This quote was added by user343228
An old man wanted to leave all of his money to one of his three sons, but he didn't know which one he should give it to. He gave each of them a few coins and told them to buy something that would be able to fill their living room. The first man bought straw, but there was not enough to fill the room. The second bought some sticks, but they still did not fill the room. The third man bought two things that filled the room, so he obtained his father's fortune. What were the two things he bought?

What were the things?
I'm dying of curiosity.

One single gas molecule would have done the same. Okay, then make it a few: a tiny bit of a mercaptan or a sulphide. Maybe cadaverine or putrescine. Or going to a better direction: a tiny drop of a peppermint oil. That's not expensive.

Ain't polite to leave your reader hanging like that, man. Might've had a panic attack if it weren't for jasonk.

He bought a candle and matches; the light from the candle filled the room.
