Which is the word in English that has nine letters, and remains a word at each step even when you remove one letter from it, right up to a single letter remaining. List each letter as you remove them, along with the resulting word at each step.

And I want to see each stage...

Ooh, I heard this one just today. A river.

Two fighter jets take off at the same exact moment. They are flying across the Pacific. One leaves Seattle and is flying to Tokyo at 480 miles per hour. The other leaves Tokyo and is flying to Seattle at only 430 miles per hour ( because of a strong head wind ). Which one will be closer to Prague when they meet?

Neither--when they meet, they'll be at the same place.
