Last week I was driving the local school bus and 12 kids got on.
At the next stop, 5 got off and 7 got on.
At the next stop, 10 got on and 1 got off.
At the last stop 23 kids got off.
What was the name of the bus driver?
Hint: Who was driving?
Since I was driving the bus and my name is Kev the answer must be Kev. If you try this puzzle on someone else, use your own name.

A lily pad starts in the middle of a pond on day 1, overnight it doubles in size. This happens every night. If the pond is covered on day 10, how big was the lily pad on day 9?
Hint: Work backwards, this way you don't need to know the size of the lily pad at the start.
Answer: 1/2 the size of the pond.
This is easiest to see by working backwards. On day 10 the pond is covered, so during the previous night it doubled in size.
