Riddle of the Day

You are on a horse galloping at a constant speed.

On your right side is a sharp drop off.

On your left side is an elephant traveling at the same speed as you.

Directly in front of you is a galloping kangaroo, and your horse s unable to overtake it.

Behind you is a lion running at the same speed as you and the kangaroo.

What must you do to get out of this highly dangerous situation?






Get your drunk tush off the merry-go-round and go home!

Sorry, but being a math geek, I can assure you that the elephant on your left is NOT traveling at the same speed that you are.

I'd climb onto the elephant. Since they're at the same speed and close together (since the horse can't pass), I'd hop over there and be safe.

Safe because I don't need to be faster than the lion, I just need to be faster than whatever the lion catches for lunch. And given the size, it is pretty unlikely the lion would take down the elephant when a horse and kangaroo are available.

Well now, that depends on if you are talking linear velocity or angular velocity. The angular velocity would be the same.

This is getting way way too complicated.
