Hundred Dollar Exercise

Situation puzzles (sometimes called lateral thinking puzzles) are ones where you need to ask lots of yes or no questions to figure out what happened in the situation. These are good puzzles for groups where one person knows the puzzle and answers the questions.

If it was an electric treadmill, the teacher would have never phrased the bet in that manner. He would have said, "Whoever can stay on the treadmill on the highest setting..." The wording of the bet implies that the treadmill is self-powered.

I agree with Valannin, I was picturing a mechanical treadmill. So I imagined Chris built some sort of motorized rotating contraption to put traction against the treadmill belt automatically. Or he launched the treadmill with a giant catapult. That would surely make the treadmill "go the fastest."

Umm...it's kinda stupid...it's obvious when you say "who can make the treadmill go the fastest" instead of "who can run fastest on the treadmill"
