Her you go!
A horse travels a certain distance each day.
Strangley enough, two of it's legs travel 30 miles each day
and the other two of the horses legs travel nearly 31 miles each day.
It seems that 2 of the horses legs must be 1 mile ahead of the other 2 legs,
but of course this can't be true.Since the horse is normal,
how is this situation possible???

It's travelling in a circle.

Three people check into a hotel. They pay $30 to the manager and go to their room. The manager finds out that the room rate is $25 and gives $5 to the bellboy to return. On the way to the room the bellboy reasons that $5 would be difficult to share among three people so he pockets $2 and gives $1 to each person. Now each person paid $10 and got back $1. So they paid $9 each, totalling $27. The bellboy has $2, totalling $29. Where is the remaining dollar?

aah i've heard of this one b4
figured it out while on the toilet
you are not supposed to add 27 and 2
you subtract 27 and 2 to get the actual amount of room
which is 25
Think it through

That's about right. It's quite hard to explain the answer to that one.

They should be there.
Errers should be errors.
There are only 2 errors so the statement itself is an error.

Hmmmm, OK, that wins you a "small", plunk down another dollar and see if you can trade up............
As a keen photographer, I find the best way to capture the portrait of a gazelle is to stand well downwind. I also try to wear clothes which blend in to the background to reduce the chance of scaring the animal.
What country is hidden in the above sentence ?
