A large truck is crossing a bridge 1 mile long. The bridge can only hold 14000 lbs, 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?

Answer:

No, it does not collapse. Because it has driven a half mile - you would subtract the gas used from the total weight of the truck.

A train just leaves a station and enters a tunnel. Where is the best place for a claustrophobic person to sit?

Answer:

In the back. See, the train is still accelerating as it is leaving the station so the train will be moving faster when the back of the train enters the tunnel.
