There are a few trees in a garden. On one of them, a pear tree, there are pears (quite logical). But after a strong wind blew, there were neither pears on the tree nor on the ground.
How come?

At first, there were 2 pears on the tree. After the wind blew, one pear fell on the ground. So there where no pears on the tree and there were no pears on the ground.

A lift is on the ground floor. There are 4 people in the lift including me. When the lift reaches first floor, 1 person gets out 3 people get in. The lift goes up to the second floor, 2 people get out 6 people get in. It then goes up to the next floor up, no-one gets out but 12 people get in. Halfway up to the next floor up the lift cable snaps, it crashes to the floor. Everyone dies in the lift.

One day there was a running competition with 3 people. 2 were fast one was slow. The race started the 2 fast people were talking to each other because the slow one was behind, the referee said 'sandpit ahead jump over it'(basically long jump) the jump came they jumped and then...the slow one came first. How did the slow one come first?
