  28. Santa's sleah has broken down out in the wilderness and his reindeer have flown back home where it's warm. During his travels he picked up four other passengers out of compassion, not wishing them to freeze in the bitter snow. They come upon a river with small chunks of ice flowing down it. On the other side they see a charming log cabin that's lit by a warm fire. All four people and their belongings need to get to the other side of the river safely without any item getting damaged or any person getting harmed. They find a boat but quickly discover it has a weight limit.



    Rules To The Puzzle:
    Santa can travel with anyone.
    One of the passengers is secretly a theif and would rob and kill any of the other passengers if left alone with them even for a second if Santa was not there to keep an eye on him. (Santa is the only one who can get him to behave.) Thief can not be left alone with any of the items.
    Another passenger is an Elf with two gifts in his lap.
    The last passenger is a Scrooge with two bags of gold in his lap.
    The Elf would take the old Scrooge's gold if given a chance and donate it to chrity so can not be left alone with either of the the gold bags at any time.
    The Scrooge would take the Elf's gifts if given a chance and hoard then to himself so can not be left alone with either of the gifts.
    The boat can not move on its own so needs someone to man it at all times. Items can not do this.
    It's too far to toss the items across the river.
    It's too cold for anyone to swim, they'd die upon entering the frigid waters.
    Each item/person must use the boat if they hope to get to the other side safely.
    Never at any time can the boat hold more than two people/items without sinking.
    Any person/item can travel as many times as needed to get everyone/thing across safely.

  36. Voiceless it cries,
    Wingless flutters,
    Toothless bites,

    what am i?

    It cannot be seen, cannot be felt,
    Cannot be heard, cannot be smelt.
    It lies behind stars and under hills,
    And empty holes it fills.
    It comes first and follows after,
    Ends life, kills laughter.
    what am i?

    This thing all things devours:
    Birds, beasts, trees, flowers;
    Gnaws iron, bites steel,
    Grinds hard stones to meal;
    Slays king, ruins town,
    And beats high mountain down.
    what am i?
