A prisoner escape from a prison.


A PRISONER ESCAPED FROM A PRISON AND
BEGAN TO MAKE A DASH ON FOOT. HE RAN
FOR ABOUT 3 MILES WITH INTERMITTENT
STOPS TO CATCH HIS BREATH UNTIL HE
SAW A POLICE CAR COMING TOWARDS
HIM. INSTEAD OF TURNING IN THE OPPOSITE
DIRECTION AND MAKING A RUN FOR IT,
THE MAN RAN TOWARDS THE POLICE CAR
BRIEFLY BEFORE TURNING AND RUNNING
INTO A NEARBY WOODS TO HIDE. WHY DID
THE MAN RUN TOWARDS THE POLICE CAR?


ANSWER: THE MAN WAS MORE THAN
HALFWAY ACROSS A BRIDGE WHEN
HE SPOTTED THE POLICE CAR, SO THE
QUICKEST WAY TO LEAVE THE BRIDGE
WAS TO RUN TOWARDS THE POLICE
CAR AND THEN TURN AND RUN INTO
THE WOODS TO HIDE.
