You are participating in a race. You overtake the second person. What position do you finish?
If you said "first", you are wrong! You arrive second! If you overtake the second person and you take his place, you arrive second!
If you overtake the last person, then you arrive...?
If you answer that you arrived second to last, then you are wrong again. Tell me, how can you overtake the LAST person? (except on a closed track in a long race, and we aren't assuming that!) You're not very good at this are you?

The boat then crossed the International Date line and Kerry, the younger twin, was born on February the 28th. In a leap year the younger twin celebrates her birthday two days before her older brother. Another option suggested by one of our visitors is that although he was her "twin" brother, he could have been the twin of another sibling.
