    Riddle me this 3

    There is a furious dog that follows your every move tied to a tree by a long chain. Your ball rolls within the limits of the dogs chain. How can you get your ball back quickly without harming the dog?

    get someone to pick it up whilst you go the other side.

    Walk round the tree several times, the chain will wrap round it and get shorter.

    Go as close to the dog as you can without him being able to get you. Walk around that circumference and the chain will get shorter as it wraps around the tree on every complete cycle. Get your ball once the dog can no longer reach you.

    :thumbsup:How about throwing him/her a bone ?
    If on the other hand you are one of these people that don't take a bone out with you when you play football you will have to use your spare ball .

    Surely just walking in and picking the ball up wont do the dog any harm? What harm the dog does to you though, is another matter !
