    grin Riddle # 158 (Solved By dangerous tears)

    Suppose you want to cook an egg for exactly 3 minutes. You have only a 5 minute hourglass timer and a 2 minute hourglass timer. Using these 2 timers, how can you boil the egg for exactly 3 minutes?

    you start both timers at the same time. when the 2 minute one goes off there will be 3 minutes left on the 5 minute timer, start the egg then. Or trade someone your two timer for a 3 minute timer.
