If you were running in a race, and if you'd just passed the person in 2nd place, which place would you be in now?




(Or maybe I'm just trying to make you all paranoid now  :lol:  :ph34r: )

you'd be either in 2nd place or 3rd place - depending in which direction "passing" is..

if passing is: your going faster then that person, u'd be in 2nd.. if it means your going slower: u'd be in 3rd (u WERE in 2nd place before that point in time)

Yeah, the answer is in second place. That one was for all the people that read it too quick and want to say first place. I know, it happens.

I am pretty sure I only passed 2nd place because i tripped them or hit them with the vec i was in at the current time.

And i would be in 2nd place then it would be off to kill 1st place

i know, hooman -- for as second, i was also tempted to say "FIRST place, of course" .. it's kinda instinctive - altho VERY wrong.. lol

when you are lapped, you have lost already.

I agree with your answer, mostly because I considered the same thing. So technically, all we know is that you're not in first place.

true, but most lap races are either ran as a relay, or ran as 1 lap

Lol. Can we all just assume it was a 1 lap race and get over it? I guess the other answer makes sense, although certainly out-there like most of Haxtor's posts.   :o


Btw, I just got someone with that. They said first place.  B)

lol, when I first heard it three years ago, I spent a half an hour arguing why it was first, and won the argument, lmao

I said that the question was stated in such a way as to imply that the person wasn't in 2nd place until you passed them.
