    A few more "Brain Teasers"

    Each one can be answered or explained:

    -I have two US coins (current) totaling 35 cents. One is not a dime. What are the coins?

    -A train leaves New York for Boston. Five minutes later another train leaves Boston for New York, at double the speed. Which train will be closer to New York when they encounter?

    -Two boys are born to the same mother by the same father at the same time, on the same day, in the same year, yet they are not twins. How can this be?

    One is a Quarter and the Other is a dime. Right?

    When the trains encounter, they both have to stop. Then the train FROM New York will always be closer to New York.



    OK, a cowboy rides into town on Friday, spends three days there, then leaves on Friday. How?
