I do not stop working,
If you touch me
I may be snared,
If you lose me
Nothing will matter.

What am I?

Hope.

The Long River

How many times does the letter S appear in the name of the longest river in the world?

Zero. The Nile is the longest river in the world. Some claim the Amazon as the longest, but that too has no “S”es (that looks weird but I don’t know how else to write the plural of “s”). The Mississippi is the 4th largest river in the world according to a href=”https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_rivers_by_length”>Wikipedia.
