Scientific Humor

The average time it takes to figure this out is 45 seconds. Time yourself and let me know. It's so obvious, people miss it thinking the correct answer is wrong.

Question: If you're running a race and you pass the guy in second place, what place are you in?

To tell you the answer defeats the whole purpose. Think about it. You'll get it.

This one is very easy, yet I decided to wait for others to answer. My grandchildren are always asking me such questions~one especially so who goes to Georgia Tech.

NO, try again. Read it carefully and then you will see the answer.
