Riddle:
You put a glass of water on a record turntable and begin slowly increasing the speed. What happens first -- does the glass slide off, tip over, or does the water splash out? (The 'Google Riddles' are interview questions those who wish to get hired were asked).
Riddle:
There are two planes. One is going from Los Angeles to Japan at a speed of 600 MPH. The other is traveling from Japan to Los Angeles at a speed of 500 MPH. When the planes meet which one will be closer to Japan?
Riddle:
Twelve flags stand equidistant along the track at the stadium. The runners start at the first flag. A runner reaches the eighth flag 8 seconds after he starts. If he runs at an even speed, how many seconds does he need altogether to reach the twelfth flag?
Riddle:
Walking home one day, you take a short cut along the train tracks. The tracks cross a narrow bridge over a deep gorge. At the point you are 3/8 of the way across the bridge, you hear the train whistle somewhere behind you. You charge across the bridge, and jump off the track as the train is about to run you down. As it happens, if you had gone the other way, you would have reached safety just before being run over as well. If you can run ten miles per hour, how fast is the train moving?
