Stand Your Ground

Two sentries were on duty outside a barracks. One faced up the road to watch for anyoe approaching from the North. The other looked down the road to see if anyone approached from the South. Suddenly one of them said to the other, "Why are you smiling?"

How did he know that his companion was smiling?


  1. Because it was the same road. One looked after one side, and another look after the other side.

  2. They are facing each other and watching the road, which is actually one road.

  3. Techie has it, they are face to face.

  4. Yeah, it's the same road and they're facing each other...

    But the REAL question is, why IS he smiling??

  5. lol yahh, but yeah, theyre facing each other watching the sides of the road(: nifty

  6. Why is he smiling? ;-)

    You all figured it out, they were looking past each other.

  7. Well I was thinking, maybe they were back to back, and the one guy was really self centered so he was looking at himself in a mirror and smiling at how wonderful he thought he looked. Well the other guy also had a mirror, though I don't know why, and he saw the other guys reflection from his mirror so that's how he saw he was smiling and that is the reason why he was smiling :D

  8. Hahaha... i thought they both had swords and that one could see the other guy in the reflection of the other guys sword in his sword... but that's a little more convoluted... plus one would have to be left handed so... ::shrug:: the same road solution has none of these problems - so if you hear hoofbeats...
