Riddles, Riddles, Riddles!

Ooo, yes, as you can tell from the title I am going to be giving you some of my toughest riddles for you to answer in this post. So, let the guessing begin (to quote Jake from the Teenage Writer). :P

1. A man is 20 years old in 1980, but only 15 years old in 1985. How is this possible?
2. What has roots that nobody sees, and is taller than trees. Up, up it goes, and yet it never grows.
3. What's black when you get it, Red when you use it, And white when you're all through with it?

4. Two convicts are locked in a cell. There is an unbarred window high up in the cell. No matter if they stand on the bed or one on top of the other they can't reach the window to escape. They then decide to tunnel out. However, they give up with the tunneling because it will take too long. Finally one of the convicts figures out how to escape from the cell. What is his plan?
5.Name an eight letter word that has kst in the middle, in the beginning, and at the end.

 Enjoy guessing!

3. Charcoal??

I don't know them all, so I'll say the ones I do know!

2: A Mountain

lol, the only one I can think of is No. 2; a mountain. That's just because I was reading the Hobbit the other day--Gollum had a riddle like that. :)

@The Fourth Throne,

Man, you guys are good...I should have spent more time on picking the riddles.
