|Ragknot took the bus every weekend to go fishing either to the lake or the river. Initially he tried to guess which would offer the best conditions, but frequently guessed wrong. So he decided that as the buses to each place ran every ten minutes, and from the same bus-stop, he’d simply leave it to fate, and jump on the first bus that came along. After several weeks he was puzzled that he hardly ever got to go to the lake – in fact it was only about one week in ten – despite the fact that he got to the bus-stop at all different times, and that all the buses to both places ran on time (this is Puzzlaria…). So why was this?
