Here’s the question: I left the campsite and hiked south for 3 miles. Then I turned east and hiked for 3 miles. I then turned north and hiked for 3 miles, at which time I came upon a bear inside my tent eating my food! What color was the bear?
You might be thinking, how on earth would I know what color that silly bear is? But give it a moment, and I promise, you do not need to be a bear expert in order to solve this puzzle. The answer? The bear is white. The only place you can hike 3 miles south, then east for 3 miles, then north for 3 miles and end up back at your starting point is the North Pole.
