    A bull travels a certain distance everyday :) .Strangely enough, two of its legs travel 25 miles each day and the other two legs travel 26miles. it would seem that the other two legs must be one mile ahead of the other two legs, but of course this can;t be true. Since the bull is normal, how can this be possible :)

    The legs that have travelled 26m were "dragging" (sort of) the other legs that travelled slower, prevailing a distance of 1 mile less (i.e. 25m).
