An old parchment describes the location of buried treasure: 'On the island there are only two trees A and B and the remains of a gallows. Start at the gallows and count the steps required to walk in a straight line to tree A. At the tree turn 90 degrees to the left and then walk forward the same number of steps. At the point where you top drive a spike into the ground. Now return to the gallows and walk in a straight line counting your steps to tree B. When you reach the tree turn 90 degrees to the right and take the same number of steps forward placing another spike at the point where you stop. Dig at the point exactly halfway between the spikes and you will find the treasure.'However our hero when he gets to the island finds the gallows missing. Is there any way he can still get to the treasure?

6 in roman

After teaching his class all about roman numerals (X = 10 IX=9 and so on) the teacher asked his class to draw a single continuous line and turn IX into 6. The only stipulation the teacher made was that the pen could not be lifted from the paper until the line was complete.

Draw an S in front of the IX and it spells SIX. No one said the line had to be straight :)
