1. You are driving down the road in your car on a wild, stormy night, when
you pass by a bus stop and you see three people waiting for the bus

* An old lady who looks as if she is about to die.
* An old friend who once saved your life.
* The perfect partner you have been dreaming about.

Knowing that there can only be one passenger in your car, whom would you
choose?

2. An American nightclub called 'The Coconut Grove' had a terrible fire in
which over 400 people died. A simple design flaw in the building led to
the death toll being so high. Subsequently, regulations were changed to
ensure that all public buildings throughout the country eliminated this
one detail which proved so deadly. What was it?

3 Many shops have prices set just under a round figure, e.g. \$9.99 instead
of \$10.00 or \$99.95 instead of \$100.00 . It is assumed that this is done
because the price seems lower to the consumer. But this is not the reason
the practice started. What was the original reason for this pricing
method?

4A corporate businessman has two cubes on his office desk. Every day he
arranges both cubes so that the front faces show the current day of the
month.

What numbers are on the faces of the cubes to allow this?

Note: You can't represent the day "7" with a single cube with a side that
says 7 on it. You have to use both cubes all the time. So the 7th day
would be "07".

5Two friends decide to get together; so they start riding bikes towards
each other. They plan to meet halfway. Each is riding at 6 MPH. They live
36 miles apart. One of them has a pet carrier pigeon and it starts flying
the instant the friends start traveling. The pigeon flies back and forth
at 18 MPH between the 2 friends until the friends meet.

How many miles does the pigeon travel?

Note: Assume that the pigeon can go from 0 to 18 kmph instantly and also
turn around instantly.

Answer2: The doors at 'The Coconut Grove' opened inward. In the mad panic
to escape the fire, people were crushed against the doors and could not
pull them open. After 'The Coconut Grove' disaster in 1942, all public
buildings had to have doors which opened outward.

Answer3: The practice originated to ensure that the clerk had to open the
till and give change for each transaction, thus recording the sale and
preventing him from pocketing the bank notes.
