Think fast: There's an electric train traveling south. The wind is from the north-west. In which direction would the smoke from the train be blowing?

Perhaps if the conductor has climbed onto the top of the engine for his smoke break.

Or it's an electric train carrying smoke machines to the annual smoke machine convention and the people in charge of the machines have decided to test them all at once.

No way. The train has clearly been derailed and thrown down on the city of Tokyo by Godzilla hours ago.

So Tokyo is now littered with running smoke machines?  Which way is the smoke travelling now?

I think, like the train, we have derailed from the initial post.

Also if Godzilla is involved, we are only a few celebrities away from the ultimate showdown.

I have Batman's and Chuck Norris's numbers, lets get this thing set up. :D

Also, if no one minds, I'm going to post another riddle. :)

We are all very little creatures; all of us have different features.  One of us in glass is set; one of us you’ll find in jet.  Another you may see in tin, and a fourth is boxed within.  If the fifth you should pursue, it can never fly from you.  What are we?

Not technically, although you could argue it! I'd say no, because it comes from the sun rather than passing before it. :) The answer I was thinking of was wind. :)

I'm standing by my giant scorpion runt.  I say he's good enough.  Also, fairly cute.  You know... minus the giant venomous stinger.

Coyote?  Pretty sure they only eat meat, though...  Vulpes is fox-related.  So... I'm guessing a desert fox?  (Yes, I'm cheating off of Lady Oniya's answer, since I don't want to look it up.)

P.S.  I really like the word "vulpine."  It sounds so sexy.
