A donkey travels the exact same distance daily.
strangely 2 of his legs travels 40 kilometers and the remaining two travels 41 kilometers.
Obviously 2 donkey legs cannot be a 1km ahead of the other 2.

The donkey is perfectly normal. So how come this be true ?

The donkey travels in a circular path, such as a carnival ride, thus the outer two legs travel further.

I wish I could sleep... but my mind starts to wander, and well, basically, one sheep, two sheep, cow, turtle, duck, Ol McDonald had a farm... HEEEY Macarena!!!

Wow fishmed ... I don't know if that's the answer hermygranger had in mind, but you're really smart to have thought of that.

That's correct. Here are a few more
1.This is an unusual paragraph. I'm curious how quickly you can find out what is so unusual about it. It looks so plain you would think nothing was wrong with it. In fact, nothing is wrong with it! It is unusual though. Study it, and think about it, but you still may not find anything odd. But if you work at it a bit, you might find out.

2.What number comes next in the series 5 15 5 18 5 24 14 20?

3.There were once 3 brothers, one day on the way to their grandmothers funeral their car broke down.
Oh great, they all thought, and tried to fix the car but finally decided they had no idea what they were doing.
The middle and youngest brother teamed up and forced the eldest to walk in search of a house where they could use a telephone to call a local tow truck.
They were literally stranded out in the middle of nowhere-the landscape was barren and nondescript.
The eldest brother walked for ages until suddenly he appeared before a large victorian home. Everything was pink.
Thinking that this was a little strange, the brother peered down the road for possible neighbors, but he could see nothing at all.
The picket fence lining the yard was pink, as was the gate. The path to the house was pink, the porch was pink. The door was pink. The shudders were pink. EVERYTHING was pink.
He opened up the fence gate which screeched "Piiiinnnkkk!!" as he walked the path his footsteps barked "Pi-Pink Pi-Pink P-Pink!!". As he walked the porch steps they groaned "PPPink PPPink PPPink!!"
Finally, with many "Pink" statements he made it to the door and knocked loudly, the door shouted back "PINK PINK"
He waited a minute or two but no one answered the door. He decided it was best to go inside anway, they still needed to make a phone call. He grabbed the doorknob and turned it- it whispered softly "ppinkkk".
He shouted into the home "Hello? Im just here to use your phone!"
When he looked around the home, once again everything was pink. Pink furniture, Pink carpeting, Pink drapes, Pink walls.
He figured the phone was in the kitchen so he walked in there, pink tile, pink cupboards, pink fridge, pink everything.
He heard his stomach growl and decided to steal some food, plus the phone call could wait. When he opened the pantry there sat Raisin Brand and Frosted Flakes. He chose the Frosted Flakes and ate it happily.

Back at the stranded car, the two brothers became angry, they both decided to search for their brother and for a phone. They walked for what seemed hours and soon discovered the giant pink house and figured their brother had gone there, as there was no other neighbors.

The picket fence lining the yard was pink, as was the gate. The path to the house was pink, the porch was pink. The door was pink. The shudders were pink. EVERYTHING was pink.
They opened up the fence gate which screeched "Piiiinnnkkk!!" as they walked the path their footsteps barked "Pi-Pink Pi-Pink P-Pink!!". As they walked the porch steps they groaned "PPPink PPPink PPPink!!"
Finally, with many "Pink" statements they made it to the door and knocked loudly, the door shouted back "PINK PINK"
They waited a minute or two but no one answered the door. They decided it was best to go inside anway, they still needed to make a phone call. One brother grabbed the doorknob and turned it- it whispered softly "ppinkkk".
The other brother shouted into the home "Hello? We're just here to use your phone!"
When they looked around the home, once again everything was pink. Pink furniture, Pink carpeting, Pink drapes, Pink walls.
They figured the phone was in the kitchen so they walked in there, pink tile, pink cupboards, pink fridge, pink everything.
The brothers both heard their stomachs growl and decided to steal some food, plus the phone call could wait. When they opened the pantry there sat Raisin Brand and Frosted Flakes. Both of them chose the Raisin Brand at ate it happily.
They waited some time for their brother to show up, but he was strangely missing. The two brothers decided he had gotten a ride, so they used the phone to call a tow truck which took the two of them to their grandmothers funeral.
Still they saw no sign of their brother, and never did again after that day.

Whats the moral of the story??

*HINT* the house wasn't their grandmothers, and the eldest brother wasnt brutally murdered or anything like that.

4.In a contest, four fruits (an apple, a banana, an orange, and a pear) have been placed in four closed boxes (one fruit per box). People may guess which fruit is in which box. 123 people participate in the contest. When the boxes are opened, it turns out that 43 people have guessed none of the fruits correctly, 39 people have guessed one fruit correctly, and 31 people have guessed two fruits correctly.
How many people have guessed three fruits correctly, and how many people have guessed four fruits correctly?

5.Two prisoners 'Lincoln Burrows' and 'Michael Scofield' are locked in a cell.
There is open window approx 30 feet above the ground of the cell.
They are never able to reach there.

Then they plan to escape by a tunnel and they start digging out.
After digging for more than 20 days, Scofield comes with the different plan and they escaped.

what was the plan ?

1) The word "the" does not appear.

5) Pile the dirt to reach the window.

3 is something about people preferring one type of cereal to the other.

1 The letter 'e' doesn't appear at all

2 Since the numbers are in the pattern big-small-big-small-big-small, I think it's some mischief with even exponents.

4 None got three correctly (that's impossible), and 10 got all correct.

1 is correct. It was the letter 'e' doesn't appear at all.
4 is also correct, unless of course there was someone extremely stupid in the crowd.
5 is correct. They pile the dirt to the window.

I'm interested in the answer to number 3...

Happy ever after in the marketplace, Desmond lets the children lend a hand. Molly stays at home and does her pretty face, and in the evening she's the singer with the band!

It's a really stupid answer and the whole point of it is to waste your time, but the moral has nothing to do with wasting your time.

Oh, that's stupid. The moral of the story is that 2 out of 3 people prefer Raisin Bran over Frosted Flakes. Had to look it up, it was killing me.
