A dog is on a chain leash on one side of a railroad track. His food is on the other side of the track. The dog's leash is long enough for him to be able to cross to the other side the track, but it is not long enough for him to reach his food. How can he break the chain leash to get the food?

Feb 15, 2005

Wow...I'm quite suprised that they put this one through.

I was like "Waiiittt...that's way too easy to be the answer. *scratches head*"

...better luck next time. hopefully?
Feb 15, 2005

Alright I've got way harder ones. Actually when I first heard this riddle I couldn't get it
I'm smart I just think I stink at riddle's.
Feb 16, 2005

Feb 16, 2005

Thats not really true though because the force of the train hitting the leash would simply push the dog forward, moving the leash in a semicircle back to its original postion and killing the dog in the process. A dog cannot withstand the force of a moving train.
Feb 18, 2005

Actually you are wrong. The forse of the train will flatten the leash. I haave actually put quarters on the railways of a small train that goes pretty slow and the train not only flattend the quarters, but also shot them off in many directions.

Fun but way to easy. Course that is not always a bad thing!
Feb 19, 2005

Good riddle !!

And very well set up and explained. Although it was easy ... there's nothing wrong with that. It makes the category more fun when there is a mix of easy ones and hard ones. Keep 'em coming.
Feb 20, 2005

Feb 21, 2005

to E-Z
Feb 24, 2005

Dude, the answer to that one is just common sense ... the dog wants food, dog on leash, train will cut leash (maybe), what does dog do to get to food? TOO easy, sorry. But well written.
Feb 25, 2005

the leash could get cought on the train and the dog can be dragged away
Mar 06, 2005

how was that a riddle?? i thought that was the answer but then i thought that would be to easy but i guess it was. thnx for the riddle thought cuz i dont make em up i just read em.
Mar 17, 2005

2 easy, but still good.
Mar 22, 2005

EZ but still good. i like EZ one's every once in a while. it makes me feel smart.
Mar 25, 2005

The answer was easy but cute. My question is whether the dog would stand still as the train passed or get pulled under it? Poor hungry dog!

Also what if the teack is abandoned, then a trian would nver come by and the do would still be hungry.
Jan 03, 2008

I got the answer at first but then "rejected" it because I felt the force of the train would be fatal to the dog. On the other hand, it probably would break the leash, which was the original objective. Good teaser.

2 words, 2 letters.
