First topic message reminder :

A young4 woman is attending her mother's funeral. While there, she meets a man she has never seen before and falls in love immediately. After the funeral she tries to find him but cannot. Several days later she kills her sister.

Why does she kill her sister?

The donkey doesn’t travel in a straight line, but in a circle about

a fixed centre point, stepping sideways instead of one foot in front of the other.

The outer legs would describe a bigger diameter, hence a bigger distance covered.

I may be wrong of course.

Actually that solution ^^^^^^^^ works if the donkey walks round in a circle

in the normal way, the outer legs would travel further.

A large truck is crossing a bridge 1 mile long. The bridge can only hold 14000 lbs, which is the exact weight of the truck. The truck makes it half way across the bridge and stops. A bird lands on the truck. Does the bridge collapse

My first is often at the front door.
My second is found in the cereal family.
My third is what most people want.
My whole is one of the united states.

What am I?

I've been pondering this for a while.

My best guess is that the bridge will NOT collapse.
The truck will have used some fuel to cross the bridge, and a bird
being light, will not be heavier than the fuel used.

There is a story that a man and not a man
Saw and did not see a bird and not a bird
Perched on a branch and not a branch
And hit him and did not hit him with a rock and not a rock.


How is this possible?

The answer

There is a story that a man and not a man
Saw and did not see a bird and not a bird
Perched on a branch and not a branch
And hit him and did not hit him with a rock and not a rock.




Answer: A eunuch who did not see well saw a bat perched on a reed and threw a pumice stone at him which missed.
