    An umbrella and parasol are interchangeable;
    Wielding one in the sun is as natural as a sunlight straight sword.

    But what about when you're wet?
    I'm not sure what you are saying, but the original reason Umbrellas were actually used was for blocking the sun, it was later they were adapted for rain. 

    What do you mean, for when you are wet? Isn't that the same as rain?
    Are you only wet outside?

    Nope. Here's another hint.
    I can grant life, And end it. But control it, i cannot.

    ...Yeah. Time. The basic rules of time are always the same. However time is always moving forward. Time is a foe in that we eventually die. However it is a friend in that we have long enough to leave our mark on the world. With time comes life and death, but time cannot control the actions of those alive.

    So... time. It fits every category. :/

    I admit, time is very much a logical anwser, as is water, and fire, and god. You get half a point.

    Ok then (you've probably heard it before anyway):

    You are in a foreign country, and you are walking down a road until you come to a crossroads. Only one of the branches takes you where you want to go, so you decide to ask a local person which way to go.

    Unfortunately, the country is inhabited by precisely two (rather curious) tribes: members of the first tribe always tell the truth, while members of the second tribe always lie. Even worse, you don't know which tribe the local person belongs to. What one question can you ask to be certain of which branch is the correct one?

    EDIT: If you do get this, then I know another one that's similar, but WAY harder happy

    Usually this riddle has the tribesman from one of the paths and you're trying to get to the truth path. You ask them what path they're from. If they're from liar tribe they'll point you to the true path because they can't tell the truth about being from liar village. If they're from truth village they'll tell the truth and point you to truth village.
