    You are driving in a car at a constant speed. On your left side is a
    valley and on your right side is a fire engine travelling at the same
    speed as you.


    In front of you is a galloping pig which is the same size as your car
    and you cannot overtake it. Behind you is a helicopter flying at ground
    level.
    Both the giant pig and the helicopter are also travelling at the same
    speed as you.


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

    Is the pig, the train and the helicopter doing *exactly* the same speed as I do...? Sure?
    Then I have the answer. When may I post it?

    But but but

    If it's a merry go-round then the fire engine on your right side will be going faster than you.

    Three questions:
    Is the road straight?
    Can I set the car to cruise control?
    Is the car exitable (I intend to retain the car it is just that I wish to do something to one of the other vehicles or the porcine obstical)?

    Obviously it is a hover car (you didn't say otherwise) and I can just hover away.

    maybe the pig is going the same direction as you so you just keep the same speed?

    Well its obvious. A drastic situation must call for drastic action. Firstly place a brick or a suitably heavy item on the accelartor to keep the car at constant speed. Let go of the stearing wheel and hope to god the road stays straight. By this time youre love ones in tha back of the car have got a bit worried and urge you to stop youre daredevil heroics.

    "Its something ive just gotta do" you say and hurl yourself out of the driver window barely reaching the engine, feet scraping on the floor. You crawl to the passenger side of the engine where a slightly miffed fireman awaits. "I need your rope" you say and collect a sturdy length of rope which you wrap around your body. Now at the back of the engine you start to extend the firemans ladder to its full length. You then monkey swing off each rung towards the helicopter. An equally miffed helicopter pilot sees you coming and tries to swere but its too late, you rench him from his seat and he sprawls all over the tarmac. In control you set about freeing yourself from this nightmare traffic squueeze and accelerate over to the pig. With a death scream you hurl the chopper at the beast and both tuble down the valley ending up in fireball inferno. "Bye Piggy"

    Using the rope youve manage to swing back to the car before the crash, taking over the helm of the wheel and being crongratlated by youre loved ones for you arnie like heroics.
