It is possible if the ship was heading South, or North.

I'm not sure if that was toward me or not, but I doubt it since I obviously get it. But, you'd be surprised by how many things a LOT of simple things people don't understand on here. A lot of the people on here just read it and think they get it, only to find later that they didn't have the right idea at all. It's quite entertaining though. At least, to someone like me it is. (By "someone like me" I mean someone that likes to pick people apart.)


Wow... what a small world you live in

one sailor is on the east side looking across the deck to the west, and sailor two is on the west side looking across the deck to the east. being on opposite sides of the ship they would be in each others view! This riddle is very simple, or maybe I'm just wrong lol



Ok first off Marines and Sailors are two different branches of service. Marines belong to the Marine Corps and the Sailors belong to the Navy. For the two marine to be looking in two different directions but see eachother is simple. the marines are looking across the deck of the ship. so the marine on the left side of the ship is looking towards the right end and the marine on the right end is looking towards the left. To much thinking is going on here. As a Marine in real life it's easy to think that the most complicated answer is correct but all in all it usually isn't.
