In four years' time they will have been married four times as long as they were 29 years ago.
For how many years have they been married?

40 years

Bill has been married for ten years and his wife says, "My anniversary present better be on the driveway tomorrow and it better go from 0-200 in 2 seconds." A small package shows up for her the next morning. What is it?

A cheap man and his wife decide to go on a trip for their 10th anniversary. They go to Brazil and while touring the rain forest his wife falls off of a bridge to her death.

Shortly after her death one of the flight attendants on their flight sees a report on her death on television. She immediately calls the police and tells them the man murdered his wife.

How did she know?

For thousands of years I have been well behaved,
dancing and moving under their watchful gaze,
but secretly I embark on daring escapades,
tangling with friends, slipping through blockades,
but when doubters look I am still in one place,
Only recently have they seen through my clever charade

What am I?

Xeno, Yves, and Zahara are best friends celebrating one of their own birthdays. They make the following statements:

Xeno says, "It's Yves' birthday!"
Yves says, "It's not Xeno's birthday!"
Zahara whispers, "It's __'s birthday", but so quietly that you can't make out which of the three names she said.

If I told you how many true statements were made, then you still wouldn't know whose birthday it is. Now that you know that, if I told you what Zahara said then you'd know whose birthday it is.

Whose birthday is it?
