ok, but i doubt any wind could bend a bullet travelling very fast 45 degrees in 100 yards

You are in a room where there are no metal objects except for two iron rods. Only one of them is a magnet.
How can you identify this magnet?
It probably has something to do with the earth's field right? Pivot it on your finger. The magnet will swivel, the normal one won't.

In any case, you can rub one on the other and make them both magnets - you can identify them, then, both as being magnets. Problem solved :^_^:

3. A woodcutter had a cube of oak which never got smaller and was never cut. How can it be that he changed its shape from a cube to a pyramid, and then to a rectangle?

I have one:

If a man's mother-in-law can marry his son, and a woman's father can marry her sister-in-law, can a man marry his widow's sister?

Because Dave is the world record holder for running - Usain Bolt lied.

I assumed that half way into the forest meant half-way to the middle.

His horse is called Tuesday. It doesn't work because you had to type it. There's no capitalisation on the name
