Riddle:

A man took a walk in the park. While on his walk, he came across a stray dog who began growling at him and nipped at his heels. The man pulled a crooked stick from his knapsack, told the dog to, "Fetch!", and then threw the stick. The dog made a mad dash for the stick, then suddenly made a u-turn and ran back to the man ----- without the stick. The man laughed loudly. He then said to the dog, "Let's try this again." Throwing the same stick, the man again yelled, "Fetch!", and the dog took off as before, suddenly made a u-turn, and ran back to the man ----- again without having obtained the stick. The man laughed louder. This same series of events happened over, and over, and over again until the dog finally ----- bit the man on the leg. What was going on here that so infuriated the dog to cause him to bite the man?

Answer:

The man had tormented the dog in the park in the past by telling the dog to fetch the crooked stick (wooden boomerang) he carried with him in his knapsack. The dog could never catch the boomerang, which always returned to the man after he threw it, thus frustrating the dog who only wanted to play. What goes around comes around, as they say, with boomerangs and in life.

Jim immediately used his ticket to go to 10 mins in the past to get a popsicle. After that he traveled forward 10 mins to the present time. 10 years later Mike used his ticket to travel 30 mins into the past to try and stop a car crash that killed his girlfriend. After he did that he realized he lost his ticket so he just let time catch up to him. 12 years later Jack used his ticket to travel exactly 100 years into the future to see how far tech has advanced. after spending a year in this time he goes back exactly 100 years back into the present. Who is the oldest sibling now?
