Can You Explain?

To answer these questions, you have to let your brain think in different ways than you may be used to. See if you can let your brain switch directions to answer these questions:

1.     A girl who was just learning to drive went down a one-way street in the wrong direction, but didn't break the law. How come?
  1. How can you throw a ball as hard as you can and have it come back to you, even if it doesn't hit anything, there is nothing attached to it, and no one else catches or throws it?
  2. Two students are sitting on opposite sides of the same desk. There is nothing in between them but the desk. Why can't they see each other?
  3. There are only two T's in Timothy Tuttle. True or false?
  4. Jake was standing on one side of the river, and his dog Scruffy was standing on the other side. "Come on Scruffy, come, boy!" shouted Jake. Scruffy crossed the river, ran to Jake, and got a treat for being a good dog. The amazing thing was that Scruffy didn't even get wet! How did Scruffy do that?
  5. You have a bag with four candy bars in it. You promised to give each of your three friends a candy bar, and you want one for yourself. How can you accomplish this, and still have one candy bar left in the bag?
  6. One day, two mothers and two daughters went shopping for shoes. Their shopping spree was successful — each bought a pair of shoes, and all together, they had three pairs. How is this possible?
  7. Once a dog named Nelly lived on a farm. There were three other dogs on the farm. Their names were Blackie, Whitey, and Brownie. What do you think the fourth dog’s name was?
