    Good one

    an electric train traveling west at 30 miles per hour with the wind blowing east at 10 miles an hour, which way does the smoke blow?

    a plane crashed on the border which side do they bury the survivors?

    a rooster layer and egg on the top of the barn, which side does it roll down?

    1. None it was an electric train.

    2. None you don't bury survivors.

    3. Roosters don't lay eggs.



    (Okay so I might have heard the second two before but I still figured out the first one myself. :D)

    In most cases electric trains require smoke to be exhausted into the atmosphere to produce the electrical power that causes the electric train to move. In which case the smoke that is emitted to produce the power to move the train is not emitted at the train but at the electrical power station that still consumes fossil fuel like coal etc. It is the optics of the train that is important for political reasons, not the fact that the electrical train is less efficient than a coal consuming train. The losses are predominately generated in the generation and transmission of the electrical power to the train.

    Its the optics of not seeing smoke coming from an electric train that convinces us that the electric train must be more efficient than the previously manufactured trains.

    The correct answer is that the smoke goes in the same direction as the wind is blowing. As there is no smoke emitted from an electric train the observed smoke must be coming from something else and so the direction the smoke is going is irrelevant with respect to the direction that the train is going. The observed smoke will only go in the same direction as the wind blows.

    This riddle only demonstrates that people are just dumb, and do not understand that the sound bites they are feed are not necessarily true.

    Remember, electricity is just like a river. Energy is not created until a potential difference is created in both instances.

    Yep, that’s why electric cars make no noise and produce no emissions (smoke)

    ps when a. Diesel engines warms up it produces little to no smoke, a Diesel engine produces smoke when it is under a heavy load or something is wrong

    You missed my point. Keep believing the sound bites that you are feed on a daily basis as your mind becomes like chewing gum, and is spat out and discarded.

    Have a nice day now if you can understand the difference.

    Assuming that it's not on fire, the answer to the first one is "neither" because it's an electric train.

    The answer to the second one is also "neither" because the survivors did not die in the plane crash.

    And I believe the answer to the last question is none, because Roosters don't lay eggs

    If a plane crashed on the border, then the plane has to have a width of less than the width of the border, which means that the people inside the plane, if they survived, must be even thinner and have a thickness which is less than their shadow, in which case they must be already dead.

    Now the border between countries, or the border of a parcel of and area of land, is an imaginary line which cannot cast a shadow even in very bright sunlight.

    So for a plane to be able to crash on the border, between two countries or surrounding a parcel of land, it must be able to fly first, and in the case of this riddle it must have passengers on board. The riddle is illogical as a plane with the required dimensions to be able to crash on the border would first of all not be able to fly and secondly it would not be able to carry either a pilot or passengers and as such if the circumstances surrounding this plane that cannot fly or carry a pilot or passengers, it does not exist, it means that the described plane did not exist in the riddle and the riddle is completely illogical. Get my drift.

    Now if a plane existed that was three dimensional and the third dimension fitted along the border between the two respective countries or land parcels, then its mass must logically be zero and as such the plane does not exist. So if the plane does not exist, then the survivors of this imaginary plane also do not exist in which case there can be no one to bury.

    Now for this riddle to be logical and for survivors to exist, then the plane, that can fly carrying passengers and crew, must crash straddling the respective border in question. Now the survivors when they die who request that they be buried within a pit in the ground that is then filled in to burry them, will be buried within the boundary of the parcel of land designated for such activity. Even in this eventuality we have the same conundrum because of the language used as it suggests that the people are buried within the borders of the said parcel of land.
