Good one!

The wise man said, "Your father has just installed the Internet in your home. FREE PORN!"

The wise man said, "Your father is packing up all the valuables and preparing to run away with your inheritance!"

The wise man said, "The last one of you in my desert will inherit my scimitar in your butt!"

The wise man said, "When your father made that challenge, it was Speak Opposite Day!"




I prefer this answer , it's more logical than the real one lol.

I think the guy told them that he would only give the solution to " slower camel" to who ever goes the same trip as asked by the father and arrives first at wise mans door.
So "....off they went" hoping to get the wise man wisdom.
But of course there will be the last one to get the Castle.
:icon_eek: easy!

The wise man told them the father died. The bet was off.

If the bet was off, then why go through with the race.

the wise guy told then to run your camel as fast as you can as probably the camel will get tired soon and can not go to city fast, but if the camel is going slowly then slow and steady wins the race.

After second thought, i think the Wise man told them that the answer will lies in the most tired Camel so they better start wearing out the camels as early as possible to make them fatigued.

By the time they come back the most fatigued will arrive last.

Any objections

This rather myopic answer. Bet was off, yet the Crazy sons of Czars run nuts humping camels!

Think this more realistic case. Best answer so far

But the riddle said that whoever had the slowest camel would inherit the Sheikh's money. Why would the two brothers be racing as fast as they can? Don't they want the fortune?




Think about that for a second... "HAD" ...not "HAS". If they switched camels then the loser HAD the slowest camel.

Technically this is what should be considered. Lets say you got off of one camel and got on another one and raced it and won the race. Then the camel that you were on previously came in last and was the slowest camel. All in all, you lost then. My point being.... Whether they changed camels or not, they would still not want to be the one who got there first. the wise man was an idiot.

If they are going to try to be the last there, they would neve get there, they will go slower and slower until they stop and will not move before the other for fear of being first.

Thus nowone will ever get the inheritance.

the wise man told them get there as fast as they can and agree before hand to split the money 50/50 between them. So it does not matter he is first and last
