Engine problems

Markus Wennrich - Wed Apr 28 09:27:57 1999

A large two-engine train was crossing America. After they had gone some 
distance, one of the engines broke down. "No problem," the engineer 
thought and carried on at half power. Farther on down the line, the other 
engine broke down and the train came to a standstill. The engineer decided 
he should inform the passengers about why the train had stopped, and made 
the following announcement, "Ladies and gentlemen, I have some good news 
and some bad news. The bad news is that both engines have failed, and we 
will be stuck here for some time. The good news is that you decided to 
take the train and not fly."

If one synchronized swimmer drowns, do the rest have to drown too?
