Little Timmy weighs less than 60 lbs. He is the smallest sixth grader at his middle school, possibly the smallest sixth grader period. One day, on spring break, he went to the local beach. Shy, Timmy was resolute to sitting by himself, minding his own business on a sand dune. Unfortunately, being small and alone makes you the perfect target for bullies. Spotted, James the jerk and his troop descend on Timmy. Caught unprepared, Timmy had no where to disappear to. The bully set in calling Timmy names and taunting him. Tired of the taunts, Timmy posed a challenge to James. He told James that if he could lift James further away from the ground than what James could lift Timmy then James and his friends would have to leave him alone for a year. Naturally James, the biggest sixth grader at his school, possibly the biggest sixth grader ever agreed to the deal.
Tim won the challenge. What happened?

Spoiler for I'll bite
Excellent, now instead of using his house as an example use the context of their location.
**any ideas of the second way of answering the question?

Spoiler for I'm a bit disturbed by Molly's answer, but...
This is 1 answer. Now can we find the other?

essentially the same logic as vistaptb. Still one more unique solution available.
