James ordered a fishing rod, priced at $3.56. Unfortunately, James is an Eskimo who lives in a very remote part of Greenland and the import rules there forbid any package longer than 4 feet to be imported. The fishing rod was 4 feet and 1 inch, just a little too long, so how can the fishing rod be mailed to James without breaking the rules? Ideally James would like the fishing rod to arrive in one piece!
Insert the fishing rod into a box which measures 4 feet on all sides, the fishing rod will fit within the diagonal of the box with room to spare.cleanfunnyshort

There was once a college that offered a class on probability applied to the real world.
The class was relatively easy, but there was a catch.
There were no homework assignments or tests, but there was a final exam that would have only one question on it.
When everyone received the test it was a blank sheet of paper with a solitary question on it: "What is risk?"
Most students were able to pass, but only one student received 100% for the class!
Even stranger was that he only wrote down one word!
What did he write?
He, brilliant student, wrote down: "This".
