Two cars leave from point A towards point B.
They both travel at the exact same speed and follow the exact same path, thus taking the exact same time to arrive to point B.
However, one of the cars arrives about 34.73 minutes after the other one.
How is that possible?

Perhaps the second one left 34.73 minutes after the first one?

Correct.
As simple it sounds, try to tell it to some of your friends and you'll be amazed at how many of them are not able to figure it out.

Because the other car had arrived about 34.73 minutes before the one under consideration!
