    Default Mind Boggler: Can You Figure It Out?

    Picture a suspension bridge that’s 4km long. This bridge is strong enough to hold 10 000kg, but no more. On a perfectly sunny day, a loaded truck weighing exactly 10 000kg drives onto the bridge. At the halfway point, a bird weighing 30g lands on the truck, yet the bridge doesn’t collapse. How can this be?

    Can any of you figure this out? Think hard!

    PS: There is only one answer to this question.

    If no one is able to get it for a while, I'll give you a little hint.

    Haha. No. It requires a little more thinking than that.

    I'm gonna be mad cause this one seems like it turns out being one of those "hit you right in the face" riddles ><

    but i'm beginning to think it has something to do w/ being in the middle of the bridge has something to do with it though..
    and it is really hard to believe that there are no other cars traveling down a bridge that size....

    Yes, it is one of those "hit you right in the face" riddles, and no, Mythological Omega, you are incorrect.

    Not really, unless you don't know basic arithmetic.

    And _Venom_, very... imaginative, but you are also incorrect.

    Whoops, accidental double post. I didn't mean to post my other post >.<

    There is an updraft causing the truck to be lighter than it really is?
    Probably too technical...
