By using a magnifying glass and the sun's rays you could burn through the string and consequently cause the ring to drop to the bottom of the bottle.

Tom wants to send Sally an expensive ring through the mail because they live thousands of kms apart. The only problem is that everything sent through the mail is stolen unless there is a lock put on it. Both Tom and Sally have plenty of locks and keys but they don't have any of the same locks or keys.

How can Tom send Sally the ring without it getting stolen?

I possess two wires. Both of them have an inconstant thickness but both of them burns completely in sixty minutes. The problem is that I want to measure forty-five minutes while using these two wires.

How can I measure if cutting the wire in half is not possible due to non-homogeneous construction ?
