Riddle:Why did the man put his watch in a safe?

Riddle:What can't be used until it is broken?
Why did the man put his watch in a safe?
-- Because it was very expensive? (I think the real answer is more sophisticated.)

What can't be used until it is broken?
-- It's a seal?

In Oklahoma, you cannot take a picture of a man with a sign. Why not?

The more you have of it, the less you see. What is it?

What is the middle of nowhere?

What do you throw out when you want to use it, but take in when you don’t want to use it?
