    Stopping

    You are riding a horse. In front of you there is a fire engine. You are being followed by a helicopter. To your left a sports car is driving. And to your right there is a drop of about 4 feet.

    The Question: How can you arrange that you will all stop simultaneously, without crashing and without mutual communication?

    Of course, Steve and Jezza. It appealed to the silly streak in me.
