    You never said how many were girls.

    They could all be guys for all the question asks.

    Do the timezones matter?

    Is the wind blowing?

    Are the trains full?

    (Actually, they are equally close when they pass, as they are at the same spot!)

    Not nessacarily, that answer assumes a direct course from London to Glasgow. If the track meanders a bit it might, for instance, go from east to west for a bit, in which case one of the trains will be a little bit closer to London.

    Pedantic, me?

    I did consider that - the train lengths - where do they "meet" etc.

    Pedantic no, accurate yes (or so I like to tell people!)

    2 boxers are in a boxing match scheduled for 12 round. However, one knocks the other out after 6 rounds, but neither man throws a punch! this is ordinary boxing, not kickboxing or anything, and no rules are broken. how is this possible?!?

    Is it something to do with boxer-shorts?
