    I actually know this man. One day he took me to see his apartment and together we rode the elevator all the way to the 50th floor. But, he did mention how he usually had to get out at 12 and walk the rest of the way.

    He is a midget/dwarf and can't push the top-floor buttons in the elevator.

    Man, if I were him I'd move to a different floor. He probably wasn't that short until he started walking up 38 floors every day.:rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes:

    Hmm. On all the elevators that I've ridden, the buttons for the higher floor numbers are at the bottom of the panel. :rolleyes:

    No, I think if he's that dumb to walk up all those stairs, he probably wouldn't stop at the right floor anyway.:rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes:

    Now if he was smart, and apparently he isn't, but if he were, he'd just wait until someone was going up to the 50th floor and ride with them, or maybe just ask someone to push the button...:D hamr

    Ok, my turn,

    A man rides into town on Tuesday, stays overnight in an inn, then rides on on the same Tuesday. How is this possible?

    Ok, try this one.

    A school marm is as old as a cowboy will be when the school marm is twice the age that the cowboy was when the school marm's age was half the sum of their present ages.

    What are their ages?
