A conundrum is a question that opens either the question or the answer.

Post yours until someone answers it and then another one is posted so here goes I'll start off easy .........

Q: Why will one never starve in the desert?


A boy was at a carnival and went to a booth where a man said to the boy, "If I write your exact weight on this piece of paper then you have to give me £50.00, but if I cannot, I will pay you £50.00." The boy looked around and saw no scale so he agrees, thinking no matter what the carny writes he'll just say he weighs more or less. In the end the boy ended up paying the man £50.00.

How did the man win the bet?


What can fly and go anywhere.
No matter how far or how near.
Can be rich and famous or scientist of the year.
Yet the space of which it travels is not outside the atmosphere.
