First, I am speaking at a Skeptics on the Fringe event tonight at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. Details here. If you are around, please come along and say hi.
Second, here was the Friday puzzle….in the 10,000 metres final at the Olympics, John passed the runner in second place on the penultimate lap. Then John himself was passed by two runners on the finishing straight. What medal did John win?
If you have not tried to solve it, have a go now. For everyone else the answer is after the break.
No medals for John – he finished fourth! Did you solve it?
I have produced an ebook containing 101 of the previous Friday Puzzles! It is called PUZZLED and is available for the Kindle (UK here and USA here) and on the iBookstore (UK here in the USA here). You can try 101 of the puzzles for free here.
