    This is another version of the coffin riddle, but it isn’t as good, the original is much better – it goes like this…
    The Buyer doesn’t need it,
    The Seller doesn’t use it,
    The User doesn’t see it.
    What is it?
    A Coffin.

    I have one for you – will post answer Saturday 23rd.
    A man rides in to town on friday, he stays for the weekend, likes it so much he decides to stay another 48 hours on Monday, he never spends more than 96 hours in the town, but leaves on friday. How many days did he stay altogether and how did he manage it?

    The man has a horse called Friday, so he stayed just four days
