The answer to last week’s challenge is: Q: A jet airliner carrying 20 Mexican lawyers to a convention in Rio de Janiero crashed and landed directly onto the border between Colombia, Venezuela & Brasil. Under International law, where should the survivors be buried?

A: Nowhere, given there is no need to bury survivors.

This week’s challenge is:

Q: A snail crawls slowly up a garden wall 48cm high. If it crawls up 8cm a day and slips back 3cm each night, how long will it take to reach the top?
