Mental Floss 146

The answer to last week’s challenge is, Q: Scott ran halfway into the forest in half an hour. Dan claimed he had gone two thirds of the way into the forest in the same time. Scott however said this was impossible. Why?

A: You can only run half way into the forest, after that you are running out of the forest.

This week’s challenge is:

Q: A traveller set out on a journey and stopped only once he had returned to his starting point. During the journey, his head travelled 36 feet further than his feet, yet his feet remained attached to his body. What is the explanation for this?

The answer along with a new thinking challenge, next week.

Have a great weekend!
