Are You Ready?

Are you guys ready? I mean, are you all seriously ready? Come on, don't dilly dally now, get ready quick. I know you're all waiting for this, right? I can see you all gleefully salivating already ... LOL! Ok, ok, I won't keep you in suspense anymore.

Here it is, my latest riddle for you to solve ... hahaha ... What did you think it was? I'm too much of a cheapskate to give you guys anything of real value like a heart pendant jewelry you know. It's not a riddle really, it's more of a ... urrrmmm, brainteaser for want of a better word.

And I'd advise you guys to try and solve it fast seeing as how that genius Nessa is away on holiday somewhere. This gives you all the chance to try and solve it before she does ... LOL! As usual, I already know the answer. Yes Anny, I cheated as usual. After all I'm the most dumbest of the lot and the only I'm going to solve it is by cheating ... LOL! And that doesn't mean you can cheat ok, Anny? ... hehehe ...

Ok, so I'll leave you with it for now. Take your time and figure this one out. It's real easy and you guys should be able to get it in no time. Just make you sure you try and answer before Nessa gets back :

Pirate Pete had been captured by a Spanish general and sentenced to death by his 50-man firing squad.

Pete cringed, as he knew their reputation for being the worst firing squad in the Spanish military. They were such bad shots that they would often all miss their targets and simply maim their victims, leaving them to bleed to death, as the general's tradition was to only allow one shot per man to save on ammunition. The thought of a slow painful death made Pete beg for mercy.


"Very well, I have some compassion. You may choose where the men stand when they shoot you and I will add 50 extra men to the squad to ensure someone will at least hit you. Perhaps if they stand closer they will kill you quicker, if you're lucky," snickered the general.

"Oh, and just so you don't get any funny ideas, they can't stand more than 20 ft away, they must be facing you, and you must remain tied to the post in the middle of the yard. And to show I'm not totally heartless, if you aren't dead by sundown I'll release you
so you can die peacefully outside the compound. I must go now but will return tomorrow and see to it that you are buried in a nice spot, though with 100 men, I doubt there will be much left of you to bury."

After giving his instructions the general left. Upon his return the next day, he found that Pete had been set free alive and well. "How could this be?" demanded the general. "It was where Pete had us stand," explained the captain of the squad.


Where did Pete tell them to stand?
