You are brilliant, BlondPoetess. ... and I am brilliant too because I said what you would have said if I hadn't said what I have already said, and since what you would have said what I have already said if I had not said anything, and what you would have said in such an instance would have been the precise answer!
One day you come up to me and say why don't you give me one of your sheep, so I will have twice as many as you... I respond, why don't you give me one of yours, so we will both have the same amount of sheep?
An Arab sheik is old and must will his fortune to one of his two sons. He makes a proposition. His two sons will ride their camels in a race, and whichever camel crosses the finish line LAST will win the fortune for its owner. During the race, the two brothers wander aimlessly for days, neither willing to cross the finish line. In desperation, they ask a wise man for advice. He tells them something; then the brothers leap onto the camels and charge toward the finish line. What did the wise man say?
A hint? ok they are going hell for leather for the finish line no stopping - there is a key word in the question and in your first post you used a similar meaning word. Anything else would give the game away.
Try this one out A man lives on the 20th floor of his building. Each day he takes the lift to the ground floor and goes to work. Each evening he returns home and goes up to the 19th floor. Gets off and walks the stairs up to the 20th. Why does he do that?
They broke into the room and found this guy hanging by the neck. Dead. It was a suicide. The door and windows were shut from inside. He was hanging from a beam that was close to the center of the room. There was water all around. The room was empty and not even an item of furniture was in sight. How did he get up there to hang himself?
A group of archeologists are excavating. Their findings will decide which of them deserves the award for "Archaeologist Of The Century."
Most of them find stuff belonging to the tenth century except one. This guy Tom finds a vase dated 1000-BC. He is so excited that he has found something belonging to a pre-historic era that he rushes to submit his findings.
Tom is certain of getting the coveted award!
However, within minutes of submitting his findings along with his report, he is expelled from the society of archeologists!
