how to cross the bridge???
#1
A woman who lived in Germany during world war two wanted to cross the German/Swiss border in order to escape nazi pursuers.
The bridge which she is to cross is a half mile across, over a large canyon. Every three minutes a guard comes out of his bunker and checks if anyone is on the bridge.
If a person is caught trying to escape German side to the Swiss side they are shot. If caught crossing the other direction without papers they are sent back. She knows that it takes at least five minutes to cross the bridge, in which time the guard will see her crossing and shoot her.
How does she get across?

ANSWER :
She waits until the guard goes inside his hut, and begins to walk across the bridge. She gets a little more than half way, turns around, and begins to walk toward the german side once more. The guard comes out, sees that she has no papers, and sends her back to the swiss side.
