You are driving down the road in your car on a wild, stormy night, when you pass by a bus stop and you see three people waiting for the bus:
1. An old lady who looks as if she is about to die.
2. An old friend who once saved your life.
3. The perfect partner you have been dreaming about.
Knowing that there can only be one passenger in the car, who would you choose?
A hundred stones are placed, in a straight line, a yard distant from each other. How many yards must a person walk, who undertakes to pick them up, and place them in a basket stationed one yard from the first stone?
To collect the stones, the person must walk 1 yard to pick up the first stone, and then they had to double the distance each time - 2 yards, 4 yards, 8 yards etc.
To find the answer we multiply 202 by 50 = 10,100 yards.
