View Full Version : riddle me this?
here's a riddle, can you answer it?
A set of twins are celebrating their birthday, the youngest twin celebrates it's b-day oneday, & the oldest twin celebrated it's b-day two days later. How's this so?, Can you figure out the correct answer? If so, answer it. *hint* it has a twist
they were born before/after midnight on Feb 28/Mar 1 and its a leap year.
yes, but can you figure out the twist?
Boo-yah! I'm pretty sure that's correct PsyLover! Nice job!
When you say "set of twins" do you mean that they are each other's twin or could it be they aren't related?
They're located on different sides of the international date line?
i don't see a twist.....enlighten me.
I don't have the answer, but here is the twist he's talking about:
A set of twins are celebrating their birthday, the youngest twin celebrates it's b-day one day, & the oldest twin celebrated it's b-day two days later. How's this so?, Can you figure out the correct answer? If so, answer it. *hint* it has a twist.
The oldest twin's birthday comes later than the younger twin's birthday.
yes, the dateline, but read it carefully, oh & yes they are related.
How could the older twin have it's b-day two days after the younger twin? note that we've already established the dateline & leap year.
It was a very long labour???:p
nope, think, it does have something to do with the dateline & a leap year.
It probaly has something to do with the first twin being still born or something and bring brought back to life after midnight on the leap year - or SOMETHING like that.
I know I'm probably way over thinking this because most riddles have a simple answer but can't you celebrate an event whenever?
You can have a party to commemorate an event at a later date. You don't have to celebrate your birthday on the actual birthday anniversary date. Maybe the older twins friends couldn't get together on that day, so they had a party 2 days later on the weekend when everyone could get together to celebrate.
Just a thought.
Or maybe the older twin lives in Japan, and it's leap year and so it's technically 2 days later than when the younger twin had his birthday.
were they born in a plane?
ok, here's the answer, but forget the leap year part.
the parents were on a cruise ship, & gave birth to the oldest twin on March 1st, as pointed out, & the younger twin was born on Feb. 28th, as pointed out, but here's the twist. As the mom was giving birth to the second twin, the cruise ship cross back over the dateline, as it was sorta pointed out.
It's a bad one isn't it?
now someone else can say one.
