If visiting neighbors resulted in gift bags

Events A and B are traveling in the same direction on parallel updates. Event A is traveling at 60 mph and event B is traveling at 70 mph. Event A passes an update at 12:20 P.M. If Event B passes the same update at 12:32 P.M., at what time will event B catch up to event A?

    Would be nice if we could at least get gift bags from the wheel.

    I'll take that challenge ;)

    At the update, A has a 12minute, or 12 mile, lead on B.

    B, which is travelling 10miles per hour faster than A, will take 1.2 hours to close this gap.
    Or 1 hour and 12 minutes.

    So, therefore, henceforth and ad infinitum, 01:44. AM.

    And if that's correct, I've just proved myself to be a nerd... :oops:

    My head is still spinning from them traveling on parallel lines with B going faster than A and yet A hit the update first. Hmm. In the voice of Christopher Walken it's a quandary that's what it is. But as you can tell by my pic I don't get paid to think.
