She coulda been dead like Luke's father.

By science fiction I mean is this a scenario that could take place in real life, exactly as told.
I believe it's time for mankind to set aside the crutch of religion and embrace morality born of reason and truth. Those crutches have long since proven treacherous when the ground gets slippery.

I was a little worried about putting this puzzle up today, with all the "Flying Monkeys" avatars up, but it didn't give it away I don't think.

You are on a galloping horse........

You are on a horse, galloping at a constant speed.

On your right side is a sharp drop off, on your left is an elephant traveling at the same speed as you.

Directly in front of you is a galloping kangaroo and your horse is unable to overtake it.

Behind you is a lion running at the same speed as you and another kangaroo.

What must you do to safely get out of this highly dangerous situation?

Wait? Flying Monkeys? Is that what we're doing now? Shit. No one tells me anything.

Wait for the merry-go-round to stop and just get off.

Well, the official answer was "Get your drunk ass off the merry-go-round ya deadbeat!".

But we'll accept your version as well I suppose.

You go again, PG. That one was way too easy.

Four legs have I, a sturdy fellow
A fuzzy back that isn't yellow
But (often) green or (rarely) red
A den is where I make my bed
My keepers feed me coloured balls
With sticks they store on my den walls
Sometimes I store them in my pouch
Sometimes deep in my belly; ouch!
That's when you'll see me acting strange
Instead of balls, I'll eat your change
And that's my cue to feed again
Chalk it up to hunger, friend!
