# A bird lands on the truck. Does the bridge collapse?

555 views

A large truck is crossing a bridge 100 mile long. The bridge can only hold 5000 kg, which is the exact weight of the truck. The truck makes it half way across the bridge and stops. A bird lands on the truck.

Does the bridge collapse, please provide your reasoning?

Bridge wont collapse if the weight of the bird is smaller than the fuel burnt in the fuel tank till 50 miles.

If we tie a light oxygen tank to a bird so that it can breathe on the moon, would the bird fly faster, slower, or the same speed as it does on earth? (Remember that there is less gravity on the moon.)

Scary droplets from the sky.
Tumble down as night goes by.
Over the lands it carries on.
Rainfalls pours, sun is gone.
Merging roars and bright light.
Yearning for a peaceful night.
What am I?

I roam through the lands hoping to rescue my love. I search high and low, and will stomp on you if you get in my way! What am I ?

A truck driver is on the job hauling wood across the state. Unbeknownst to him, his neighbor stuffed a potato in the exhaust pipe of his car the night before he started his haul. The truck driver makes it to his destination with no break downs or any damage to his vehicle. How is this possible?

You are on an island in the middle of a lake.

The lake is in a remote part of the country and therefore there has never been a bridge connecting the island to the mainland.

Every day a truck gives rides around the island.

Puzzled as to how the truck had gotten onto the island, you ask around and find out that the truck was not transported to the island by boat or by air.

Nor was it built on the island.

Explain how the truck got there?
