Basically as the title says, we are all encouraged to work our brains more so here you got get those stem cells working people!!

and a 1 and a 2 and a 123 go!

Only one color, but not one size,
Stuck at the bottom, yet easily flies.
Present in sun, but not in rain,
Doing no harm, and feeling no pain.
What is it.

Three friends check into a motel for the night and the clerk tells them the bill is $30, payable in advance.
So, they each pay the clerk $10 and go to their room.
A few minutes later, the clerk realizes he has made an error and overcharged the trio by $5.
He asks the bellhop to return $5 to the 3 friends who had just checked in.
The bellhop sees this as an opportunity to make $2 as he reasons that the three friends would have a tough time dividing $5 evenly among them; so he decides to tell them that the clerk made a mistake of only $3, giving a dollar back to each of the friends.
He pockets the leftover $2 and goes home for the day! Now, each of the three friends gets a dollar back, thus they each paid $9 for the room which is a total of $27 for the night.
We know the bellhop pocketed $2 and adding that to the $27, you get $29, not $30 which was originally spent.
Where did the other dollar go????
