Please imagine: you are in ship and you are captain!
You have in your ship some animals!  A chicken, a gazelle, a tiger, a cow, a horse!
Suddenly your ship fall in storm and you must throw all those animals except one!
You can keep only one animal, so which of those animals do you keep?

It's more better to imagine, if you don't know swimming would the riddles help you out?!!  Laughing

Imagine two friends are sailing on the sailboat.

One is a sailor sailing the sailboat, and another one world renown logician. 

Both of them talking and joking with one another. 

Logician asking Sailor, " Ohh, my Sailor friend, do you know something about logic?"

Poor Sailor in embarrassed tone, "Sir, I don't even know the abc of logic and riddles".

Proud Logician, " hah, you poor soul, you have ruined your life, if you haven't learned logic".

After few moments, sky turning into dark,

heavy wind blowing like a rapid fire of bullets,

Sailor breaking his silence and asking revered logician,

"Sir, do you know how to swim?!!"

Logician, "Wha wha what?" ... sailor, " Sir hurry up tell me do you know how to swim, our sailboat is falling into storm?" 

Logician, " Errrrrr, wa wha what, hurrrr iiii caaaa neeee, ohh, I don't know how to swim … OMG! .... 

Sailor humbly, " Sir, you have really ruined your life in logic if you don't know swimming …. " Laughing

I used to work in a ship design company, as far as I know , if your ship falls in storm. it is not that good an idea to decrease too much weight suddenly unless water comes into tank, it may rise the centre of gravity and lead to shipwrecks, and in that case I would rather to throw myself into the seaFoot in mouth.


anyway, I would keep the cow. because I have never tried beefsteak and I want to know how does it taste!!
