It's all about the angles of the hands.

The first one might be fast or slow by a certain amount of time .(but you know this).

The second one would be stopped.

Hehe... yes that's right stora. Because of the workings it's not quite possible for an analouge watch to be right twice a day, but if it's stopped then it will be!!

:-D

Have a go at this one:

John turns off the light in his bedroom. The light switch is twenty feet from the bed, but he still manages to get into his bed before it is dark. How does he do it?

Ok here another one.....

2 babies are born on the same day, same year, to the same parents. They are not twins. How can this be?

They're part of a set of triplets!

============================

No puzzle from me, but something to make you think...

With regard to the watches (see start of this thread), in theory the non-working watch is better than a slow (or fast) watch as it shows the correct time twice a day, as opposed to the other watch which never shows the correct time.

In a similar vein, which way round do the clock hands go? (Anticlockwise - we see them going clockwise because we're looking at the clock)

(These are the sort of things that you need to be able to 'see' if you want to stand any hope of being a successful computer programmer, as you need to see things from the perspective of the computer, & not from your own perspective;-) )

Oh dear, did I kill off this thread? Sorry:whistling:

OK, to get it going again, how far can a person run into the woods?

Until half way, then they would start running out ?
