    A fishing boat is lying in the harbour. There is a rope ladder hanging over the side with its end touching the water. The rungs of the ladder are 1 metre apart and the tide is rising at 50 centimetres an hour.

    At the end of 6 hours, how many of the rungs will be covered?

    The rope ladder ascends and descends with the boat, thus still none.

    P.S. 1 metre apart? Those are some widely-spaced rungs.

    OK, in all seriousness...


    The difference between an orange is 5.3 -- I read it on the Internet, it must be true.

    One has three legs, the second has a bathtub full of spaghetti,
    and the third was lying in a pool of its own urine.
